Day 27 - Best villain

There are a lot of famous villains, Dracula being one, but I haven't chosen a vampire, I've chosen a film that has more villains than non-villains.

In Arsenic and Old Lace, we have Raymond Massey as the Frankenstein-like brother of the hero, and he has a travelling companion played by Peter Lorre ... then there are the rest of the hero's family ... they are all scary and mad ... and I don't know which is worst!

Here is a clip of 2 of them (btw, Cary Grant is the hero)

A great film ... and the icon was made for me from this film!

You Know The Phrase ...

... There's Good News ... And There's Better News!!

Yes, for those who read my disater on Monday of my dead fridge, there has been a new developement in the story!

I couldn't get a 2nd hand one locally, so shopped on-line and was getting one delivered tomorrow.

Now, when the item died over the W/E there was still some power in the freezer bit, so I left that running in the hope some of the food would be saved ... I may have a healthy appetite ... but not that good.  Anyway, yesterday, I went to get the milk out of the fridge (I had been buying a one pint at a time) ... and it was cool!  Yes, I checked, everything was working again - so, I've cancelled the order, and got the confirmation of a refund!


Added to that, I have good news for Jiffy ... petzipellepingo and strikske sent him a pair of Yorkies to play with ... isn't he lucky! 

Thank you.

Ghost Of The Robot

I just loved the film - and loved the song James wrote while filming it ... so just had to share the link of James, Sullivan and the rest of Ghost of the Robot playing "Moonshot"

And for those who would like to see a couple of pictures ... here are some that the superb mad_brilliant_  took at the event -


One very proud daddy -

Jiffy - head tilt!

Jiffy Is A Lucky Boy

Earlier I thanked 2 friends for his friends that arrived on my profile - now I must thatnk louise39 as well.

Added to that he is socially busy this week - vets yesterday ... it's a treat for him to go and see Marni ... and today he has haircut ... but Jackie takes 3 hours and he has the "full works" ... so he is lucky.

How come my parent's Westie has more fun than I do?
