Hi. I just wanted to write a quick blog to say hi and let you know I am doing OK. I think I will skip this month’s Costco shopping. I will go next month to pick up a turkey. Below is my chit chat. I will keep in touch. Be safe.

Ladies in Lavender (2004)

I don’t have Amazon Prime. I refuse to pay for Prime membership. I am currently on 30 day trial membership, so I checked out their movie library. I enjoyed Ladies in Lavender (2004). I like this kind of movies. Judi Dench and Maggie Smith are two of my favorite actors. You can’t go wrong with any movie with them.

The movie was based on a 1908 short story by William J. Locke. The online book is available from gutenberg.org for free. I guess the copyright had expired.

Anyway, in the movie, the sisters appeared to be old – in their 70’s. I mean, they looked like they were at death’s door. I was smelling Bengay with my eyes. But, in the book, two sisters were 45 and 48 (who had grown grey with waiting for the prince who never came). So, instead of Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Nicole Kidman should have taken the part. The sisters were supposed to be juicy… you know… they were supposed to be MILFs.
