Pardon me while I tidy up the monitor screen. Ahem…

Yes but I’ll always have Schenectady.

Chapter 31, in my mind's eye I am imagining your corner of the room where you have your computer. To one side, the left, of your monitor is a bottle of 409 next to a bottle of glass cleaner (the 409 is for the heavier coffee spews) and to the right side of your monitor is two, or maybe three, rolls of paper towels at the ready. Once you had a square of shower curtain hanging over the monitor to protect it, but it was so darn hard to see through you got rid of it.

How correct am I?????

We need all the janitorial supplies possible, for the potential for disaster is great when there is the tick…tick…tick of the Braling II in the vicinity. Sort of like the crock in Peter Pan. In short—Bingo.

Now wait a minute! Braling II can't get all the glory. I thought that I had made a comment once that lost you a mouthful.

I have a fig tree right next to me that I never have to water because when I spew, I turn my head and use the tree. I think my tree hates me...Frowner


She stood silently looking out into the great sallow distances of sea bottom, as if recalling something, her yellow eyes soft and moist...

Stumbling back on topic: The final moment in “Mercury Rising”, a film about an autistic boy, with Bruce Willis. This film could have been a car chase but turns out to be a gentle study.

Recognise the waiter in the first clip?
It's none other than Steven Franken, a.k.a. Chatsworth Osborne, Jr. from "Dobie Gillis"!

The closing scenes in Big Fish, when William completes his father Edward Bloom's life story. He is at his father's hospital bedside. Edward asks his son how his story will end. The son now becomes the storyteller, and the myth making passes into his hands

In the final funeral scene William realizes that there was far more truth to all of Edward's tales than he had ever given credit.
--------------------

Also, the closing scene in October Sky when Homer Hickam, Sr., finally views the efforts of his son's years of hard work. With most of their small town looking on, Sonny (Homer Jr.) asks his father to do the honors of launching his final and most powerful rocket. .

Both really worth viewing with the whole family!

Big Fish, directed by Tim Burton, was a wonderful movie. Off-topic, but Burton would be great at filming anything of Ray's.

Looks like we need to rent October Sky sometime.
