Lanny, the Photo Bomb King!!

Lanny likes to sneak into a lot of pictures!!  But then he's so photogenic no one minds.  And he loves to have his picture taken!!

"Look at all those tires!!"

"Yes I dug all these potatoes myself!!"

Can you spot the Collie????

The tables were turned--Lanny didn't know he was getting his picture taken and didn't know where Dave had disappeared to! Dave had to do a repair on the metal roof of a machine shed and got this bird's eye view of Lanny.  Dave called to Lanny and when Lanny saw him up there he began barking at him like, " What the heck are you doing up there?? Get down from there!!" :)

Yes, very photogenic!!

Mahatma Gandhi


Here's the link to Gandhi's book, A Guide to Health.  I admire and respect Gandhi even more, now.

TCM Remembers

I think 2014's Turner Classic Movie's Remembers was one of the best they have done. This is their annual tribute piece to all the actors, actresses, directors, cinematographers, producers, etc., who have passed in that year. Using Kodaline's "All I Want" certainly added to the poignancy of this year's tribute.  Kodaline, from Ireland, is my new favorite group too.   For me, the most touching moments were: hearing Humphrey Bogart saying, "I'll be waiting" to Lauren Bacall's character; seeing James Garner walking alone down the road in a scene from Grand Prix; and at the end when Shirley Temple sings a line from Auld Lang Syne.  From the comments on You Tube, I wasn't alone in crying when that came on. I'm a huge fan of old movies and Turner is most often the channel my TV is set to--either that or HGTV and sometimes PBS. As far as I'm concerned the movies of the 1930s and the 1940s were the best and the stars of that era were the brightest.  With a few exceptions, we will never see their like again.
