I put in The Story of Rodriguez in my Netflix queue ... up came "SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN" ... it has 5 Stars beside it and "a very long wait" ... I pushed it to the top of my queue ...
synopsis: "The incredible true story of Rodriguez, the greatest '70s rock icon who never was. Decades after Detroit singer-songwriter Rodriguez disappeared following the failure of his two critically praised records in the 1970s, two fans from South Africa, where Rodriguez was a huge hit, try to track down their idol"
Will, is this the movie that you are watching or is there another one? It's on my Netflix queue now ... Hope it comes in soon as it's on a "long wait" ...
Thanks for turning me on to what appears to be a great story ... I will, of course, give my review after it's been seen ... I know yall just LOVE my book and movie reviews ... Oh, and guess what, I get to start reading again ... driving, too! Yippee skippy dollar fifty ... yikes, world ---> look out, FC on the loose! LOL ...
That's it!

Sorry the wait is so long... better than the 43 years it took us to just get this far with finding Rodriguez, though!

yes, it's so exciting ... Den and I always kept it "manicured" it looked (and still does looks) like a park ... cash offer I'm sure they'll accept and the price was right for me as well ... so very exciting ... it would be a travesty to have all those trees cut down ... it should be a "park" for the pups ... Happy Day to you, Princess! <3 ...

One interesting bit of information for the future is Rodriguez mentions at some point he has about 30 songs from over the years he'd like to get recorded.

Good morning, Rose Bud ... it's kind of early still and I'm not quite yet awake ... the flooring guys to be here between 9-12 to deliver the materials ... INSIDE the house so they can "aclimate" for Tuesdays project ... REALLY? grrrrrr ... I thought maybe the materials would be delivered on a pallet shrink-wrapped outside for the duration but nooooooooo ... going to drive me crazy today and tomorrow ... oh, well ... it is what it is ... no worries ... so my helper cleared out the living room yesterday ... what is going to be fun is moving the docking station off my desk and moving this executive all wood desk which is over 100 years old ... oh yeah, lots of fun ... glad it's not me, lol ... okay, let me make some coffee for a jump start ... posting certainly is not jump starting me, haha ... have an awesome day! Luvya, FC <3 ...
1498 ... a trip back to the store for 3 items left behind, oh snap!
Hey Flower...
I hope that all of your new flooring has arrived and that the job will be done in one day.. I know how you feel about moving all of your stuff out of the room but it's like you said it must be done.. I love those big old antique desks heck I love antique furniture.. I don't have much of it any more but I do think it's beautiful and nothing they make these days can come close to comparing to the craftmanship of those old pieces...
I feel the same way about old buildings and the beautiful brickwork that you see in them.. Now it's a slapped together, no style box... Back in the day masonary was an art form...
Louisville and New Albany still have some very beautiful buildings and I like to just go through the neighborhoods and check them out when I get the chance...
I haven't really done much today other than to clean out my dryer really good... Speaking of which you might want to have your helper get the vaccum and clean out your dryer.. It's not difficult... You need to do that at least once a year to clear out all the lint and junk that builds up in the exhaust and behind the lint trap... You have to remove the exhaust hose and stick the vaccum hose up in it to get it really cleared out..
I was surprised at how much had built up in mine since last year... But it's all cleaned out now and that makes me feel more secure.. Dryer fires are a big deal and they can almost always be prevented by just cleaning out the gunk...
I've got a huge pot of Chili on cooking and it smells great.. I'd send you a big bowl of it if I could..
:o)
I'm feeling pretty good today even though we had a little storm front move through.. It SNAINED (snow&rain) for about a half hour then it stopped so that wasn't to bad.. The temperatures are falling though so it's pretty chilly... Our high was only in the low 40s to begin with and now we are around 36...
OK so I'm gonna surf for a few then I think I'll get the vaccum out again and do the floors... after that I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing...hahahaha
I hope that you are having a great day so far and that your evening wil be even better...
Sending all of my best wishes to you and the pooches... along with a bunch of love...
((Love-n-Hugs))

Hey Little Flower...
I reckon you have been busy today since I don't see any posts from you.. I know its a chore getting floors put down so I'm not surprised that you haven't posted...
I do hope that your day was a good one and that you managed to simply have some fun...
My Chili turned out to be delicious.. and I ate a Jethro Bowl full..hahahahaha
I have two servings up in the freezer that will feed two people each and I have the other half in the fridge.. That's dinner for me again and I'm gonna take my neighbor a big bowl of that tomorrow for him and his Aunt who he takes care of...
He's a really great guy.. and there's nothing he wouldn't do to help someone who needed help..
I hope that your night will be peaceful and that all of your dreams will be sweet...Sending you all of my best wishes and a bunch of love...

Hello, Flower-Child... just a quick follow-up on the earlier post about the poetry contest:

The Other Valentine's Contest - finalists and ballot

https://groups.google.com/d/topic/alt.arts.po...

George Dance wrote:

I'm pleased to report that we had 11 submissions for the Other
Valentine's Contest, 9 of which qualified.(I disqualified one because
it did not contain the word "love" or a variant, and the other due to
COI.) To eliminate bias as much as possible,the 8 contestants are
presented here without the author's name, in a random order.

Birds on the Lake
Valentine Street
Passion
on a valentine's day
inLove*
Sex Cells
Miss Alice Crenshaw
A Valentine's Fantasy
As you read this

To encourage a close reading of all poems, the voting is by ranked
preference.(For those new to the term, ranked preference voting is
voting for more than one option, identifying their most preferred as
1, their next as 2, etc.) A person need not assign a preference to all
8 poems. Those who wish to vote for only one poem, in the traditional
way, may still do so; that will be counted as a preference ranking of
1.

Bcause the ballot is a bit late getting out, and because this Monday
is a statutory holiday, voting hours are extended until 6 a.m. Monday
Eastern Standard Time.

Only one ballot per voter will be counted, but voters may change their
preferences any time up until the deadline. If you change your ballot,
please indicate that you have done so, so that you may not be double
counted.

The top three poems will be published in The Penny Blog under the
poet's name (if the poet agrees to that) later this month.

Hey Flower..
It's freaking COLD here in the valley today... we might hit 30 for a high if we're lucky.. The sun is shining so that about all I can count as a blessing...
So my big plans are to stay indoors as much as possible...
I hope that your day will be a good one and that no matter what you do you will have fun and enjoy yourself..
Sending you all of my best wishes and a bunch of love...
