10 Under $20: Holiday Gift Suggestion List 2015 :-)

The
first of
December
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep, to dream of a perfect snowy Christmas Day.
Now content, to still remember these childhood memories.
On
this
November day.

These lines still conjure up some wonderful holiday memories for me, from long ago. I hope you enjoy it too. 😉

Another Movie Night Suggestion! :-)

Nuns on the Run

A few months ago, I posted about one of my fav movies (Matinee) and a brand of organic popcorn I like, you can read that post here.

Thought it would be fun to share another comedy fav movie with you today, this one starring a couple of very talented Brits, Robbie Coltrane and Eric Idle.

Nuns on the Run:

is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen and it’s one that I’ve watched many, many times too. It’s that kind of movie. And for me, it’s been just as funny on the re-viewing as it was the first time, even though I already know what’s going to happen next. 😉

Brian (Eric Idle) and Charlie (Robbie Coltrane) are small-time criminals who are fed up with their lives of crime and are now on the run from not only their gangster boss but also the police and the Triads. With no other way out, they duck into a convent, change their suits for nun’s habits and that’s when the real laughs begin. 🙂

I won’t spoil the plot but suffice to say, this one is an oldie but still a real goodie, when it comes to comedy classics. 

Oh, one more thing, in the extra features included with the film, they even interviewed some real nuns to see what they thought of this movie. Most of them really enjoyed it, except for a bit of foul language. I thought that was so cool that they took the time to get that kind of feedback. But the movie portrays nuns for the most part as intelligent and street smart too, so what’s not to like, even if you are a nun! 😉

Right now, it’s available at Amazon.com for less than $7. so this is a great time to get a copy.

Let me know if you give this one a try.

Happy Viewing and Week!

Mr. Cheddar: Indie Author!!!

 

ched with BLACK GLASSES

Woohoo ! Mr. Cheddar has been bit by the “writing bug”. 😉

He is currently working on 2 eBook projects that he plans to have completed in the next few weeks.

I am “assisting” with the typing as he does find the small keys a bit challenging, with his mighty paws!!!

Will keep you posted as things progress.

I can tell you at this point though that one book is a collection of his best cat-ku (that’s haiku in cat-speak) and the other is a collection of wisdom and wit from a catty perspective.

Wish us luck! 😉

Have a wonderful week, G and Mr. C 

Easter Ched is….

“taking it to the streets again!” 😉

We both wish you the best Easter holiday ever.

May your Easter basket be filled with all kinds of sweet and special treats! 🙂

Hugs and Headbonks from G and Mr. C
