    Hi Rock and GB and all, I haven't been up to posting a lot. We're having a heat wave. Today is 93. Tomorrow is 93 with even more humidity. I'm melting....... Oh, wait, that's a different movie! LOL Hope y'all are well, and I hope to be back posting more, soon. I saw my therapist today, she gave me some ideas for some issues that have popped up. I see her again next Saturday, for more talk.

    Take care my friends!

    Hugs, DIANE

    Hi Diane

    Nice list. I remember Sorry, Wrong Number as a radio play. It starred
    Agnes Moorehead. It was very popular. Was aired several times. They
    didn't have tape recorders then so it was aired live each time.

    Used to listen to the radio when I was a teen and do my homework
    more or less simultaneously. Discontinued the process as Rush said
    (a character in a popular radio program) when TV came along in the

    I looked at the Turner Classic Movies channel earlier to see what was
    coming up. Here are some three word titles on the current menu.

    My Lucky Star, The Blue Angel
    Palm Springs Weekend, Crimes and Misdemeanors

    The January Man, The Mating Game
    The Goodbye Girl, No More Excuses,
    The Floradora Girl

    The Floradora Girls was an English musical during the Edwardian era.
    Named after Victoria's son Edward. Later made into a movie titled
    The Floradora Girl. It starred the Queen of San Simeon and mistress
    of William Randolph Hearst, Marion Davies.

    Hi, Kids,

    I always enjoy your posts and I envy your ability to remember these movies. The only one which comes to mind for me is Zorba The Greek. Perhaps, if I were to cogitate on it, I could come up with a few more. Nah, too much effort right now. This ringing in my ears is driving me to distraction. Too bad it can't drive me to Hobby Lobby.

    Love, Mikie

    Hi Mikie,

    Nice ta see ya here. Zorba the Greek is good.
    And don't forget the old favorite Olaf The Non-Greek.

    I think I previously posted about a new author I found: Lorna
    Landvik from Minnesota. The heroine of her latest book has more
    perils than Pauline. Her mother died, her father is an abusive drunk,
    she lost half an arm in an accident and she has a constant ringing
    in her ears. Uff-da!

    Things are starting to improve for her, but I am looking for something
    a little less gloomy.

    Goodvye (per Google Translate) and χαιρετισμούς σε Sylvester.

    Hmmm, I shouldn't be complaining about the ringing in my ears. At least, I still have both arms. Thanks for your remarks about Sylvester. Wish I could understand it but it's all Greek to me. My bod is soooo tired but nothing compared to my pea brain. I just can't cogitate these days. So, alas, I can't play the game but I still enjoy all y'all.

    Love, Mikie

    Where is GB? That's not a 3-word title. That's a question. Did she say she
    was going on a trip? GB, sign in please. Hope you're OK.

    Dances with wolves. Did we already have that one? I can't seem to
    find it above. Feels like we did though.

    The Breakfast Club. Took my son to see that one.

    The Lone Ranger featuring Johnny Depp with a dead crow on his head.

    The Princess Bride. The Runaway Bride.
    Beverly Hills Cop. 12 O'Clock High.

    My Fair Lady. The Music Man.
    Guys and Dolls. On The Town.

    The Paradine Case. The Muppet Movie.

    How about Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men. I feel like a grumpy old woman. Bah! Humbug!!!

    The trouble with being so tired is that I have absolutely nothing interesting to say. So will bid y'all adieu.

    Rock, I'm still here! Thanks for asking about me. I have been on here every day, reading on Homebound and The Porch, but have not felt like posting. I've been in a lot of pain lately, more than usual. Lot's of gastric problems.

    On top of that, my computer is really, really, being bad! I have been fighting to keep it going for the last few years but it's truly giving up. It takes me about 20 minutes to get to the site and another 10 or so to read any posts that have videos in them. It won't stop downloading stuff!!!

    I have a refurbished one that my sil gave me and am trying to get used to it but it stresses me out so I just give up. Maybe when I feel better I'll have more patience. (I hope).

    I'm always glad to see everyone posting.

    Mikie, I hope you feel better soon. I have been reading about your kidney problem and am praying for you. Take care everybody and hugs to all. GB

    P.S. I started a new thread, a "quote" game. Hope everyone plays!

    Hi GB

    I'm so glad to have you back. Are you feeling better? Hope so. As for the
    computer, well, mine was wretched yesterday too. Might be time to buy
    a new one. As I have said over and over, my sense of time is gone. But
    I think I bought this one 5-6 years ago.

    Gordon talked to one of the computer techs at his old office. He has fixed
    the computer for us several times over the years. Lately though he
    says he is too busy. Gordon asked him to check with the office. They
    buy all new computers every few years. Employees can buy the old ones cheap.

    Your political quotes quiz was a good idea. Did we ever do one on movie
    or book quotes? I think we did song lyrics.

    I don't remember which ones we've done on quotes. I'll see if I can find the list of threads. Movie quotes does sound familiar though. GB

    Hey, GB. You win the longest list award.


    I was thinking of some movie quotes. You know what? I think I thought of
    most of them before. We probably did play that game. I also thought of
    a word game, but Frankly, My Dear, these have not proven to be very
    successful in the past.

    You ever watch that million dollar pyramid game show? We could try
    that. Of course the time element is removed, so the game would be
    less challenging.

    Turner Classic Movies is playing lots of Lucille Ball movies today.
    Mostly B movies from the late 30s and 40s.

    Hi, Kids,

    GB, thanks for your prayers and good wishes. I've sent up a prayer that you are feeling better.

    Rock, this computer is getting old and slow, like me.

    Rock, I graciously accept the 'Longest List Award'. :) I always did have a lot to say!
    I remember the Million Dollar Pyramid but can't recall how it was played. I'll have to look it up.

    I noticed in one of your posts that you wondered if I had gone on a trip. I must say, the only trips I go on are when my foot gets caught in the bathroom rug!

    I'd love to go on a vacation again. I miss St. Augustine, Fla. and visiting the Smoky Mtns. Two of my favorite places. Lots of good memories. GB

    Mikie, Thank you for your prayers! GB

    Hi Kids

    What's the difference between you and your old computer, Mikie?
    A: Your computer can be replaced.

    I don't go on trips anymore either, GB. Seldom even go with Gordon
    to the market. I can't stand up for more than a minute or two.
    You might want to do something about that bathroom rug.
    I believe Martha Stewart recommends a hammer and nails.

    More on movie quotes. When I looked at previous games I couldn't find
    one on this topic. But today I was going through a bunch of old papers,
    I found a list of movie quotes which I interpret as evidence that we did
    indeed play such a game.

    Million dollar pyramid goes like this. (See You tube for examples.)

    In what category do these cues belong? Lines, Bombs, hits, music.
    Answer: Broadway shows.

    Well, nailing the rug to my bathroom floor would not be easy, it's ceramic tile! Maybe super glue?

    On that Million Dollar Pyramid game, would we list four clues and then someone would guess the category? That might be fun. Want to start a thread? GB
