Favorite Christmas Movies

I added some more quotations.

We are holding our own and slowly getting better.
I tried twice to write a new post today
and messed it up both times.

Thought I would post the movie list again.
Before Christmas, I would like to watch Holiday Inn, The Nutcracker, The Thin Man and Moonstruck.
Maybe tomorrow?
I haven't done any sewing, but I did watch RED.

RED has a lot of what for me makes an enjoyable movie:
Interesting stuff happens.
The bad guys lose.
The boy gets the girl.
There is a happy ending.

I don't like movies that have sad endings or that jerk me around emotionally.
I watch movies for pleasure.
Life provides my feelings enough stimulation.

People are burning piles of leaves, trees, and?
making lots of smoke and last night
I woke up and thought the house was on fire.
That was scary!
