Ooops! Totally forgot it was Movie Clip Wednesday – and British Comedies at that! Could have gone with the obvious – Pink Panther, Fish Called Wanda, etc., but chose this one because we really enjoyed it – one of those movies you catch by accident. In fact, we should go rent it again just “because”.
Going a little middle-aged crazy with her predictable life, Shirley heads out to Greece for a little adventure. I love movies where the main character does those little “asides” to the camera. Yes, definitely, watching this clip makes me want to see this movie again.
Now back to original post:
Thanks everyone for the notes about staying safe, warm and dry during this crazy blizzard. I know others are still going through it and my thoughts are with you all. Yesterday was awful. Blizzard with straightline 35 MPH winds; with gusts to 50-60. What would have been 6-12 inches of snow was blown into drifts. Here’s our back patio this morning:
But if you look past the snow drift, you will see that the yard has been blown clear. Interesting! I checked the driveway and no shoveling needed thanks to all that wind. However, I have no idea what the roads look like because I don’t intend to go out until necessary! Or work tomorrow, whichever comes first. I know people are still getting stranded … think I will give the snow plows a chance to do their thing.
The husband was out on a business trip and tried to beat the storm home on Monday night, but all the airports were closed before he could get here. So he spent a couple of unexpected days in a Pittsburgh hotel. Hopefully will arrivelater today.
So it has just been me and the Rascal Cats and the Blizzard of 2011. But we have bright Oklahoma sun today and despite the temps being in the teens, maybe it will all start to melt. Here’s those rascals this morning:
Sally in her usual protected position under the chair where she can bask in the sunlight somewhat safe from Sterling’s unwanted attention.
Lewis has been standing guard on high alert with every gust of wind.
And Sterling, who is just oblivious to it all. Except he was almost successful on his own personal mission yesterday. He had SallyCat cornered in the little hallway that goes to the garage and by the time I got there he had her down and she was on her back, curled into a ball, and paw-slapping his face with all her might. I know this is nature taking its course, but what is left of the feminist in me just can’t but side with Sally.
I hope everyone else is safe, warm and dry. Peace be with you all.
