  1. Sans, oh thank you my friend. What a sweet fuzzy baby. But she's got strength too. I only hope I can do the same.
  2. Dougie, I can't tell you how much this warms my heart. Thomasina will protect me! Thank you.
  3. Oh lafitte, thank you so much. Don't worry about the computer. Love you, my friend.
  4. My friend! My friend! I am humbled by your generous comments and feel so grateful for your support. Thanks.
  5. Your encouragement and support mean so much to me, Miss. G. Thank you.
  6. Thank you my friends. Dougie, I would be honored to see and hear the birthday aria.
  7. I love when Eddie went: "Wanna ride in my SCHQUAD CAAAHR?"
  8. midwestan, I'm so sorry for my late reply, but I've been going through some rough s**t lately. (pardon my French) Thanks for all that detail on Craig -- much appreciated. I have to confess that I actually do prefer the voices of Ned Sparks and/or Andy Devine over James -- please forgive me, but I'm open to seeing the other films you mention.
  9. Hi, guys. I'm still here. Just going through a rough personal patch right now, and hopefully will emerge triumphant on the other side by the first of November. It's touch and go at this moment. Don't mean to sound overly dramatic, but, I'll see you soon. Thanks for your patience.
  10. Although Zachary Scott is a bit underweight for my particular taste, I do think he's got charisma. Someone I'd like to sit down with and shoot the breeze about film and life in general. I do appreciate that Scott tried to expand his versatility with Jean Renoir's THE SOUTHERNER.
  11. midwestan, can you recommend any James Craig movies to me other than KITTY FOYLE and THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER? (he's good in the latter) I've tried to like him but his voice is a bit tough to take.
  12. I can sort of see it. Her teeth. Interesting resume -- CAT CREATURE and Betty Broderick, two individuals you definitely don't want to mess with.
  13. Faye Emerson's fivehead always gets in my way. Never noticed George Brent's rear end but I think it's time I did. I don't think Zachary Scott even had one. He was too skinny.
