  1. Thanks all! Sunday afternoon, I watched a couple of Golden Girls (because what else is there to do?), and one episode was the one where Dorothy tried out to be on Jeopardy! Both Alec Trebek and Merv Griffin made appearances. Fun to watch!
  2. Week 45: 4/5, no * YTD: 97/225 fifteen *
  3. Long story short, I’m in the hospital with a broken hip (femur below the hip joint). Happened yesterday, surgery to repair went well this morning. Will post more as I’m able.
  4. Not sure that's correct, but the sequence for the three titles is Home Fires (in four parts), A Woman’s War, and A Woman’s Courage. It wrapped things up nicely, but of course the stories could be continued. Following various characters as their lives in the village and beyond developed would make for good reading, IMHO.
  5. I watched the first episode last night. The actor portraying Prof. T seemed familiar, and now I know why. I am intrigued by his character and the story. I haven’t seen the Belgian version, but I quite liked this one.
  6. I forgot where I’d put this thread! I posted the following in the Home Fires thread: I just finished the third book, A Woman’s Courage. I enjoyed all three books. The happy endings were somewhat predictable, but different enough that I appreciated them, and not everyone got the best outcome. I want to visit this village, fictional though it may be!
  7. I was watching an old Tales of Wells Fargo this afternoon, and one of the credited actors was Kit Carson! No, not that Kit Carson, Eldridge “Kit” Carson. Born 1909, died 1978, actor and dancer.
  8. Week 44: 3/5, one * YTD: 93/220 fifteen *
  9. I saw that old truck and the more modern bales and thought what the heck?!!! It wasn’t until I saw the phone that I got that it was a commercial.
  10. Yes! Love when we get an asterisk!
  11. It’s Miniver. I’d blame auto-correct.
  12. Anybody else get taken in by the first commercial, finding the iPhone in the hay bale? This show is funny, irreverent, and I can find nothing to criticize!
  13. My DD and her family (husband, daughter) live in England. I last saw them in person in mid-August 2019. They will be here in a month, and I am beyond excited! DH said typewriter, and I couldn’t think of anything else. When I heard the correct answer, it was a forehead slap, duh! moment. For tonight’s FJ, it was an instaget-get.

    I’m reading the book. I hope it’s OK to comment on the book here. Anyway, in the book, Cat is from Auckland, New Zealand.
  16. I guessed Harvard beets and couldn’t think of anything else. I really dislike beets in any form.

    Unforgotten

    Really felt bad for Cassie. She is dealing with a lot, and the situation with her dad is so difficult. We have the beginnings of who may be involved, interesting to watch how it will all play out.
  18. Week 43: 1/5, no * YTD: 90/215 fourteen *
  19. I thought of Earl of Sandwich, but I didn’t know it was a business.
  20. I was raised near Delphos, Kansas, and I've also been to Delphos, Ohio. The founders of the Kansas Delphos were from the Ohio Delphos. Anyway, I learned about the Delphos dress when searching on ebay for something else Delphos!
  21. For FJ, I thought Stanford because their sports team are know as The Cardinal, forgetting they aren’t a public university. When I saw the answer, I remembered “The” Ohio State University story in the news. Courtney is doing very well. Exciting to see a streak greater than 5 again.
  22. A dragonfly movie star, an angry beetle. I am enjoying this show so much! Gorgeous landscapes, amazing animals, cheesy narration by Dame Helen Mirren, tongue firmly in cheek. For a summer fill-in, it suits me just fine!
  23. Brief trip report - arrived on Chincoteague Monday, June 28. We had no idea how busy it would be. It mainly made it difficult to find a restaurant open that could accommodate us. Maria's (Italian/seafood) could, and we enjoyed dinner there. Tuesday morning I took a guided walk with Cindy from A Step Through Time. It was a downtown history walk starting at the LOVE chairs in the Robert Reed Waterfront Park. Cindy was a good guide, telling about the history of some of the buildings, fires, and floods that affected the island. We even got to sit in a rocker at Miss Molly's Inn, where Marguer
  24. Here's a picture of the Assateague Lighthouse from our balcony at the hotel.
  25. My first problem was reducing file size. I'd taken the pictures on my iPhone. I found a free app that let me reduce the file size enough, but then the rotation became the issue. I'll try later to post some more pics on my pc. Maybe that will work better. Anyway, thanks for the likes, comments, and assistance for getting Misty on her feet!
