    Hi, molo, my little raven! (then I guess Halloween didn't really "fly" by you, lol) My favorite exchange from that film: Boris: "Maybe if a man is ugly, he does ugly things...." to which Bela replies: "You are saying something profound!" Nothing scary occurred -- no alligators slithering out of the pond and knocking on my door with their tails. No 90 year old Boca men creeping up on me with their hairy arms. I ate pizza followed by devil's food cake for dessert, and enjoyed a perennial favorite, THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. I forgot to watch THE OLD DARK HOUSE. Darn those home shopping channels!!

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!

    Oh, moira, molto grazie mia cara amica. I am very touched. You have also crossed my mind more than a few times when I am enjoying a particularly wonderful turkey or a "regular" classic. I miss the fun a bunch of us had at the other retreat and hope we all can get those colored lights going again over there. How kind of you to remember my birthday and Marcello! And speaking of colored lights, why no, I don't mind you letting him in AT ALL, lol. Again, thank you so much for your best wishes. Hope you are doing okay. I'm getting ready for THE CHAMPAGNE MURDERS this evening; have never seen it. I'll also revisit PRETTY POISON which I sometimes get mixed up with LORD LOVE A DUCK.

    Hello, laffite! Thank you for the birthday greetings! Yes, this new format will take time getting used to but it makes me happy to know that Mom's memory will live on thanks to the dear friends here who continue to embrace and support this thread. I cannot begin to express my love and appreciation for all of you.

    Hi, molo, yes, here I am but I think we must cue The Twilight Zone theme! Everything is so strange, but now everyone can enjoy my old posts and the conversations with Mom! I've been laughing and crying re-reading them and also remembering all the great rambles with wonderful friends. I'm not worrying about the aliens anymore because there is a new neighbor in our complex who bears an unnerving resemblance to Francis Lederer. Boca might even get down into the 50's next week. Cannot wait. Dougie B., nice to see you! Yes, it's topsy-turvy on the boards but I'm thrilled that the old posts are the first we see. Loved that you brought up NASHVILLE -- I didn't think of that Julie Christie connection, lol.

    Scottie, my friend, my friend! Thank you! Blessings! I was a good little girl on my birthday but wondered why all the other children didn't come to the party. Maybe I should have put their invitations into a regular mail box and not that tree....

    Chris, please accept my belated birthday greetings to you (I haven't been thinking clearly for several months). I do remember you are a fellow Libra, and we're the best, right, lol? I had a pleasant quiet day alone with chocolate cake and pizza. A girlfriend was out of town visiting family and we will celebrate when she gets back and takes me out for a nice dinner. Our weather will be "cooling off" a bit next week which means it will get "down" to about 70, which in South Florida is almost chilly, ha! Blessings to you, my friend, and thank you for thinking of me. Barbarella

    Hello, Swithin, my fellow Bronxite! Thank you so much for your best wishes. I bless the memory of your dear mother on her birthday today. Take care.

    Molo! lol, oh, no, I'm not marrying a monster from outer space! They can have Gloria instead! Thank you my friend! See you later!

    Thank you so much, Ro!! Hey, Godzilla sure knows how to make a girl feel special! Ha!! So many birthday candles, lol, they are falling off my German Chocolate cake.... I'm spending a quiet day at home which is always the best place as far as I'm concerned.
