Saturday of No Alarm

It is the weekend, so there was no alarm. And I think I woke up earlier than the previous few week days.

For today’s walk we traveled to a different neighborhood, for a change in course. The location was chosen for its proximity to a post office. We got to traverse some new sidewalks and found 2 new staircases.

Tree of the day

I liked the visible skeleton

Trees of a previous day when there was not room in the blog, but they are pretty enough to share.

We are spending more time watching movies this past week:

  • Blow the Man Down – Prime Video
  • Young Frankenstein
  • Once Upon a Time in LA
  • The Green Book
  • It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
  • A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1935)

And probably a few more I am not remembering. DirectTV has been making the movie channels available without pay for a few days here and there. It has been nice to see some of the recent Academy Award winners.

We had a nice chat with a neighbor, from safe distance. She has a 2 and 5 year old. They have been creating shows to perform over Zoom meetings for family and friends. The first was about mermaids. The production currently underway is about fairies.

Through pictures, Carl has noted real advances in Dean’s artwork. (His 4 year old charge. If he were working. ) He thinks the extended time without strict schedules may be a contributing factor.

Positives in a time of uncertainty.

    There are definitely some positives, although some days I have trouble finding them. Those flowering trees are gorgeous! That huge one is leaning though; it makes me nervous. What did you think of the films?

      For the movies I really enjoyed Blow the Man Down, and The Green Book. I found Once Upon a Time in LA very entertaining, but not what I expected at all.

      Midsummer Night’s Dream is worthwhile. I particularly like Mickey Rooney as Puck. I think it was Olivia de Havilland’s first film role. She’s still alive, something like 103.

      The other two are reruns for us, but add a needed lightness to our time.
