Semi-Interesting Stuff

The Little Engine that blew up - the triple 7 that lost an engine.  We heard where it had landed and were instantly worried about our good friends the Mesineos.  I promptly wrote Mike (a fellow, long-time writer and  merry prankster) asking if they got anything valuable on their front yard. 

He wrote back with a photo of a small box like device that he labeled a controller device complete with part number in case we wanted one?  It didn't fall anywhere near them-(made landing 12 miles away)but it did fall on his daughter's street.  All is well.  

A gift from Rose Nyland, Golden Girls.  The Girls were discussing former husbands and Rose said, "Charlie was so tight he'd squeeze a Nickel till the buffalo pooped!"  The visual is rather awful (apologies) but certainly descriptive.

A shout out for Turner Classical Movies.  In sequence we've seen On The Water Front, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner and lastly The Marigold Hotel - plot summation a bunch of English come to India to treat a hotel like a care home.  A line from it resonated - Everything will be all right in the end and if it's not all right; it wasn't the end.

I enjoyed Rose's definition of cheap husbands.
