Turner Classic Movies

Sometimes, the programmers at TCM hit one out of the park. Tonite is one of those times. First up was Casablanca. The epidimy of "classic" movies. Bogie, Ingrid Bergman and a great script in an exotic location. Popular when released, it has stood the test of time.

Next up is From Here to Eternity. Oh, man - Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in one of the most famous love scenes ever. Frank Sinatra didn't sing. Montgomery Clift as a boxer, and Donna Reed as a hooker. Talk about casting against type! Ernest Borgnine as a bully - well, he sure played that sort of character well!

If I stay awake Notorious is next. A Hitchcock classic with Carey Grant and Ingrid Bergman. I haven't seen this one in years - I might just have to stay up!

It's been a while since I updated my health situation. If it weren't for the loss of use of my left hand, I'd bet I'd be going back to work in a couple weeks. I get around ok, but tire easily yet. More exercise will take care of that.

I'm seeing one of my best friends - The Young Doctor. He is a chiropractor, and he thinks he can help me regain some use in my left arm. I see a nerve specialist, but not until next month. So, it's been major goofing off for me. More than a bit boring fer sure, but these things do take time.

Fabulous movies, all. I love old movies, and particularly like Burt Lancaster. The beach scene is classic. I've never seen one of his movies that I didn't like.

I'm sorry, I forgot to say, glad to hear that your recovery is progressing. Didn't mean to be rude!

Don't worry - I sure didn't think you were rude at all!

I'm glad that you are experiencing progress. Slow progress is still progress. :)

Enjoy those movies!

I am sorry about the left hand. Hang in there. We are pulling for you.
