  1. Jette had doggy adventures this afternoon, crossing a brook on a narrow plank (on her own, and not meant to ), barking up trees and sniffing around a fire (my brother was decluttering ).
  2. Jette is busy running around, keeping an eye on everything and everybody
  3. Fingers crossed that she is well and can enjoy it I am at my brother's (with Jette). We are planning a photoshop workshop (as in I explain some stuff to my brother and my sil ) for the next days.
  4. yes, with some people I guess the famous parent is more of a burden when the talent hasn't bridged the generation. I ordered the DVD now I really need to catch up on a few things
  5. Excellent casting (I never realised John David is a son of Denzel's )
  6. that is good. not a good thing to get ill when you have no heating. I always preferred cool rooms (Migi says, "chilly" ) and a sweater. I am turning the heat up now, too.
  7. oh yes, it definitely works with a movie scene
  8. Isn't it comfortable that we are all about the same age? No surprised faces when we write something like this.
  9. copied from the movies … Did I tell that I need to wear surgical stockings now? (Is that really the right word? my dictionary insist on it. ) Getting into them is really a test for the nerves. And one of my nieces who, about 25 years ago, has been working in a home for the elderly as a student job, explained to me that the point is to get them on "really quick".  I wonder if 20 years from now, when faced with the idea to get a really tight and unwieldy stocking on her legs "really quick" if she remembers. One thing that is not working is doing it really quick. It is darkening my mornings at the moment, I tell you.
  10. Okay, I am copying this last bit into I see you, I am really off topic here
  11. The young and clueless, exactly Did I tell that I need to wear surgical stockings now?

  12. yes, exactly. Which, I think, is a good thing. Young people don't need to have that hanging over their heads.
  13. (you have to see the bright side, right?) (my sis and I decided to keep the chatter about illnesses and such on a Whatsapp conversation among the two of us, we were getting a bit tired of the young folk chiming in with suggestions )
  14. that way every conversation is always new and exciting
  15. that's okay a deeply familiar situation
  16. I had been complaining about the overdone makeup lately, bess
  17. Yes, they were just off for an after work sailing trip and I am so jealous btw - just watching the second season of Blacklist and they have dialled back heavily on the hair & makeup
  18. I guess as soon as Migi is back (from Mexico!! ) we're going to watch it together.
  19. that was indeed cute. Also how she said, social media is the toilet of the internet And it is true, the speculations about how she and Bradley Cooper must be having an affair are everywhere. Well, I watched it last night (orph course) and I need to get tissues as they are all used up at my house.
  20. yes, it must have been a horrible muddle, small wonder it echoes down the generations still.
  21. So the Scots should have an elephant as their heraldic animal I ordered A Star is Born on blueray - only the dubbed version in the theaters here now, and I can't wait until it's out on Netflix.
  22. If my niece hadn't towed me to the Hamburg Film Fest a few months ago, I wouldn't have seen anything at all, I guess, unless it was so old it was on DVD or Netflix …
  23. I think the problem was that he had to sing solo first I realise that I haven't seen (or heard) Bradley Cooper in anything at all so far.
