“Giants can run fast. They have long legs.”

The sun is still among the missing this morning but it did make an appearance, albeit a short appearance. Today is quite breezy, damp and a bit chilly, and it feels like it will rain.

Today is a get out of the house day. I’ve been inside too long. I haven’t even been on the deck because of the rain. I have a short list of groceries so that will be one stop. I need dog treats so that’s Agway. I also need paper goods like napkins so that will be stop three. By then I’ll want lunch so I might just throw in a stop at the Thai restaurant in Dennisport.

The only inside chore is fur watch. White dog hair is all over the place, on rugs and floors. Every couple of days I Swiffer the den, kitchen and hall. It takes two cloths, but the cleaning is futile. I am Sisyphus with my version of the rock, dog hair.

The animals are asleep. Maddie is on her blanket on the table and Henry is sprawled on the couch. He takes up nearly two cushions.

I’m watching the sequel toΒ The Amazing Colossal Man called The War of the Colossal Beast. It is awful. I’m delighted. The Colossal Man survived hisΒ fall from the Hoover Dam and ended up in Mexico. He seems to have amnesia and remembers nothing, including how to speak. He grunts. That’s all, just grunts, no dialogue. After being drugged then captured, he is transported by the army out of Mexico to California and kept chained in a hanger. He manages to break free and disappear which then triggers, “A man hunt for the biggest man in existence.” Really, how many places can a 60 foot man hide?

The strangest thing happened as I was watching the movie. At the end, the beast killed himself by grabbing electrical wires. Right as the sparks appeared, the movie turned to color just for the last minute or two. Very odd!

    Today was a cool spell’ we only got to 91 degrees. Aircraft were departing and arriving to the north which explained the cool down πŸ™‚

    I can’t recall all the B movies from the 1950s that either involved being invaded by aliens or creatures effected by nuclear contamination. My favorite is the “Day the Earth Stood still”.

    Today the patriarch of the TV show Pawn Stars, Richard Harrison passed away at age 77. He was referred to as ‘the old man’ which surprised me because he was only six years older than I am now.

      Bob,
      Them is my favorite. They are giant ants. I also don’t remember all the 50’s B&W science fiction movies but I do look some up so I can watch them on Youtube when the rest of TV is reruns.

      I’m thinking being described as old is relative to the age of the person saying it. Also, old man was commonly used to describe someone’s father, usually by a teen.

      We got sun in the late afternoon, but it never got warm. According to the weatherman, the last few week days are going to be hot!

    Have you heard of dog hair knitting? Collect – wash – spin – knit.
    Nice day today, hot summer will be back tomorrow.
    Happy Just-6-Months-Until-Christmas Day!

      Birgit,
      I have heard of it, but because I can’t knit, I’ll just keep clearing and tossing.

      Cold here tonight and we’re expecting a cold morning. It won’t get warmer until the weekend when it will get downright hot.

      I’ll have to check my Christmas list.

    Welcome to the world of dog hair πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I don’t notice Albin’s hair that much, he like boxer’s have so short hair that it sort of disappears. Nova’s and Sune’s doesn’t however πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Still I have so much less now than when all my old big dogs still were around πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I guess that was all the color film they could afford πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ It is odd though πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    have a great day!

    Christer.

      Christer,
      I guess I’ll say thank you!! Henry’s hair is in white dust balls everywhere he goes. I have to de-hair again today though it will be back again by tonight. He runs as fast as he can up and down the hall so he scatters his hair.

      Gracie’s hair was never apparent unless it was where she always sat like in the car while Henry does nothing and still sheds.

      It was probably only a minute of color film. It made no sense at all. I’ll have to look to see if there is a colorized version.

      Have a great evening!
