Thanks for telling him, Ali. I've been telling him all the women in his domain are gorgeous, but he thinks I'm just a dirty old man. :haha:

He's right you know Bruce. ;). Luckily thats not all you are.

Thanks Ali! I looked up the movie. Julia O'Hara Stiles is the actress I think. She could pass for family. Pete says my people all have an upside down smile. Bruce is a known quantity.:)

a)JO'HS does favor your daughter, but not as pretty.
b)While Bruce may be a known Qty, the future, according to him, is not.
c)Upside down smile? Keep your sunny side up:


Keep your sunny side up,up
Hide the side that gets blue
When their team is knocking you flat
smile and say'we're better than that"
You got keep your sunny side up, up
Let your laughter shine through, do
stand upon your legs
Be like two fried eggs
keep your sunny side up

Keep your sunny side up, up.
Hide the side that gets blue.
If you have nine sons in a row
Baseball teams make money, you know.

Keep you funny side up, up.
Let your laughter ring through, through.
Stand upon you legs.
Be like two fried eggs.
Keep you sunny side up.

This will not speak to anyone who is not British.
And even not some who are.
Or those who were not born in the right era.

But goodness me it filled my heart with gladness.
Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly were child actors in a Newcastle television series Byker Grove. I didn't like. Watched sometimes because we only had three channels in those days. Okay, maybe four.
They had a one-off hit, Let's Get Ready to Rhumble. I still didn't like.

Then they started fronting a Saturday morning TV show, called SM:TV (Saturday Morning TV, dontcha know) and the follow-on show CD:UK which had live bands. And with Cat Deeley.

OMG I was hooked.
They're not all that much younger than me.
And they were real. They didn't talk down to the "kids".
I laughed and laughed and laughed.
We used to come into work and talk about it. If you didn't watch SM:TV you were out of the loop.

I still have a "Best Of" video which I intend to convert to DVD. My only sadness is no-one I know will ever, EVER get that I'm quoting from it. It's hardly Monty Python. But "I've come to work in my pyjamas again!" is funny to me.

After a few failed attempts, well, they're human, they created a perfect Saturday evening show (oh, they also appear on Britain's Got Talent.) Saturday Night Takeaway. Here they are reprising their PJ and Duncan hit - the character names from Byker Grove.

Loki was running around outside the fence when I got home. :)

xoxoxoBruce 03-27-2013 08:39 PM

Outside the fence is a good thing? As opposed to just gone?

He's such a cute little fella and easy to catch... so far.

Sundae 03-28-2013 05:07 AM

Tie him down and drop snake venom in his eyes. It's the only way he'll learn.

Looking out the kitchen window at the woods, which are dusted with snow, and the birds having breakfast at the feeders. So beautiful. Yesterday a young raccoon was nibbling at the seed hulls on the ground under the feeders. He (or she) has been around for several months, always alone, and doesn't look to have grown much. I thought raccoons lived in groups but this one is solitary and doesn't have much sense (forages in the daytime, shows no fear of humans).

Looking it up, I gather they are solitary animals. This one was almost certainly last spring's baby. Just had a hard winter, I guess - but he/she's still here, so must have some sense.

Raccoons are not your friend., but they will keep your head warm!

orthodoc 03-28-2013 09:58 AM

I know, I know! But this one is cute and rather pathetic. It's so oblivious, it'll sit down against the back door right up against the full length glass, and not notice the cat who's sitting looking out the same door! The cat goes crazy while the baby raccoon sits there and grooms itself in the sunshine on the deck. I can't believe some predator hasn't gotten it yet.

Sundae 03-28-2013 10:57 AM

You has sunshine?
I'll come groom myself on your deck in that case.

orthodoc 03-28-2013 05:03 PM

We has sunshine! But also snow. As long as you don't mind the snowdrifts!
