“Everything I learned I learned from the movies.”

We have clouds. Snow is predicted for tonight, maybe a couple of inches. I was going to turn off my outside Christmas lights but I’ve decided to leave them. Their bright colors will be beautiful through the snow.

My house has driven me over the edge. Christmas is on tables, counters and the floors. Not a single room is cleared though the dining room is close, only the fake tree remains. I did bring my laundry downstairs. It is now in the laundry queue, on step two, leaning against the cellar door. My plan is to do the laundry, and on each trip up and down the cellar stairs I’ll bring the empty Christmas bins up and the filled bins down. It’s a good plan, but, of late, I have not been good with plans.

I am watching a documentary of sorts called The Fifty Worse Movies Ever made, almost all are science fiction so I think I have seen most of them. I am a sucker for bad movies, but I somehow missed a few including The Killer Shrews. Plan Nine from Outer Space is only number 4 although it has been considered on many lists as the worst movie ever made. The Thing with Two Heads is number 3. That was a deck movie of the week. I can attest as to how awful it is. Number 2 I haven’t ever heard of before this. It is Eegah! Drum roll please: the worst is The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies, another movie I missed. It is a musical of sorts. $30,000 was the cost of filming.

This is a busy week for me. I was out yesterday. Tomorrow night I’m going to visit friends for dinner, and we’ll exchange Christmas presents. Thursday is my uke lesson. Thursday is also dump day. I can barely contain the excitement.

I am finished here, and now I’m hungry, but first I’ll bring the wash downstairs and out it in the machine. I am determined.

    I just don’t go the the Movies so much anymore. my favorite date movie was Jaws as the scene where the head floats down to the hole in the boat almost guaranteed by companion would jump in my direction.

    The other big change is that The Price doesnt stay with us every other weekend any longer. There was a stage where I had seen literally every movie suitable for a younger person, but of course not the grown up stuff. Want to hear about The Secret Life of Pets ? I could talk all about it

    I would like to go to the movies to see 1917 when it releases this Friday, maybe Mrs MDH and I willl catch an early show at the Emagine in Rochester

    Stalls or Balcony ? A Choc Ice during intermission, An A and B movie ? or a double A feature ? is it a matinee ? Who took us to Help and Sound of Music and Mary Poppins….my Grandma

      My Dear Hedley,
      I jumped at the head in the hole of the boat.

      My friend and I used to go every Monday until she retired. I went a couple of times by myself, but I haven’t gone in a while though there are movies I want to see.

      My sister doesn’t see Ryder much at all any more. He is 13 and in the eighth grade. My sister knows as he gets older she’ll see him even less. He is the football player, and he just started wrestling.

      A movie night is no longer. I always go to matinees now.

        Mrs MDH and I bought tickets for 1917 on Friday night – Then of course we tried to remember the last time we went to the movies…..and cant remember

        Watching Dracula on Netflix, I have no idea if it is a comedy or a horror

        Well, you two kids, have a great evening. Maybe a dinner first or a snack after?

        I couldn’t watch more than a little of Dracula.

      Hi Bob,
      I would never live where it got so cold. If I need my winter coat, it is too cold.
