Two years later !!!

Uno, my Miracle Kitty, is here squawking. So happy to hear his voice.

I pretty much stopped keeping an online log (obviously), but hope to continue the Vintage Ads one and maybe add SUNSHINE CAT, my philosophy page (that might change names).

Errol Flynn Day

Errol Flynn's would-have-been 102nd birthday. I watched the Prince & the Pauper. Our hero doesn't even appear until 53 minutes in, and then only sparingly. He still gets in some swordplay, runs a few through, manages a bit of comedy and charm, and gets some cozy time with one woman. Also, I've become aware I actually enjoy Claude Rains' odd accent. Surely his voice inspired at least two cartoon characters.

AOL will NOT let me send this link!

I keep trying to send this link to AOL friends, and it bounces back EVERY TIME.

I hope this goes thru this time.

That top pic KILLS.

Shakey (shaky? Mary-Ann with the shakey hands...) hand-held digital camera looking thru a Viewmaster! Imagine if you had the right equipment...and maybe just used the reel itself without the Viewmaster viewer.... Still, a first experiment that got results. The colors are so vibrant on the reels--way more realistic than the TV show itself after they colorized it.
