Addie, if your kids are like mine, they can never figure out what I really want for my birthday or Christmas gift. Send me their phone numbers and I'll I bet they'd love to know what you'd really like to have.

Next month is my birthday and my youngest asked what I wanted. I am getting the DVD set of the complete London performance of Les Miserables. I don't know what it cost but I knew it was out of my price range. I also have the complete musical score of Mama Mia. And the DVD. Next year I might ask for the score of Les Miserables. My kids know it is "music" they just don't know what I am into this week or next. One time it was Gregorian Chant. That one threw them for a loop. Sometimes it is Latin Hymns. That one they don't understand at all. And to really confuse them, I can sing right along with the music and words. How do I know Latin?

After I am gone and the family is sitting around the holiday table telling stories, they will have some real dillies to tell about me. "Hey do you remember Ma doing the dishes and singing in Latin?"

On ABC News tonight;

Shirley McLaine will be returning next season and the hateful maid who is always stirring up trouble won't. We all know about the actor who played Mathew.

Season 1 is on CBC (French) on Saturday evenings. The war was just declared. It is funny listening to the voices used for the characters.

Be still my heart. I am too old for palpitations and flutterings of my heart. I just may swoon. Save me, save me!

OMG, that brought back an old memory. We put my cousin down the clothes shoot (don't ask). He fainted on the way down and I was told to run across the street and get the smelling salts (which, incidentally, were kept in our grandpareents' garage). My grandfather was a pharmacist. I don't even know if one could get smelling salts today (and have no idea why they were kept in the garage). I hadn't thought about that part of the event (and it was an event--and a much longer story than just putting my cousin down the clothes shoot). We all survived to adulthood and are all still alive today.
I can't see Violet needing smelling salts.

Yeah, they do sell smelling salts. All it is, is ammonia.

They must have been ammonia salt, because they were in a jar and white crystals. I was so scared, I didn't smell them! At first we thought we had killed him...
