Jungle Red Claws
I am trying to decide what to do this weekend besides thinking about sushi and square eggs. I have a blouse I was sewing that probably just needs the side seams and hem, maybe I will finish that. I stopped at the library on the way home from work and checked out a few videos. My husband did not waste his youth glued to the black and white TV screen like I did, so he is not familiar with all the old classic movies. With this in mind, I got North By Northwest with Cary Grant, because it is easy on the eyes (mine) and still has an exciting plot line. I remember when we first got a VCR (years after everyone else we knew) and I rented an old movie from the forties. I was thunderstruck to see how clear and sharp the picture was - I was so used to the terrible TV reception we had in the days before cable, that I thought all black and white films looked like that. It was a Norma Scherer movie, "The Women", I recall. I also remember how the concept of cable TV was so strange back then. The idea of paying for something free like TV was unthinkable. Now we are all hooked up to everything and enjoying it mightily.
He just came home, so time to dish up the dinner.
