Walter Mitty – HBO on demand

September 23rd, 2014 - 10:10 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Cat’s Movie Pics Lovers…I cannot remember the last time I posted a movie pic!  I have so many it is crazy for sure.  I thought I would post this one and try to get back into reporting on great movies.

I really loved Walter Mitty.  It is playing on HBO on demand right now.  I had Daisy Lynn all tucked in with Emma’s gully blanket.


I actually bought the ending credits song from ITunes.  Really pretty!

Jose Gonzales – Stay Alive

More loving great movies later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB loving the dawn;)

Howllo Fellow Basset and walking with Hound Lovers…Most of us are stuck at work and can walk our hounds right now but you can enjoy these 18 as they roam Belwade Farm in Scotland.

Let me just say this is pure 9 minutes of joy.

Wonder what those horses and ponies thought of all the hounds???

More loving joy later…Cat, Daisy Lynn (Chaps and Emma ATB and at Belwade Farm (my idea of heaven);)

The extraordinary moment is always there…

December 29th, 2013 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Extraordinary Moment Lovers…Tonight I was watching a PBS documentary on Rowland Scherman called Eye on the 60s.  I was captivated! A story about a man who is a wonderful photographer.  His BFF since before kindergarten said Rowland knew that,

“The extraordinary moment is always there.”  

Just as I was writing that quote down my e-mail dinged and it was Grandma sending this picture.


She sent me this extraordinary moment.

We unearthed this nightlight today while cleaning the basement.  A tiny woman playing the violin.

Grandma said, “Violin lady playing somewhere over the rainbow to Chaps and Chloe.”


More loving extraordinary moments later…Cat, Daisy Lynn, (Chaps and Emma ATB with Chloe, Lily and Natalie…glowing)

You get the popcorn and I will pick the movie!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Movie Night Lovers.

Back in the day the Mayor used to jump up on the couch and we would watch a movie. Now, he is laying at my feet and we are still going to watch a movie.


We are watching Earthquake on AMC.  Remember that one from the 1970s with Charleston Heston?

I remember seeing it in the theater and they had the shaking seats.  It was a hoot!

I made sure to tuck Emma into her pillow nest!

Then I popped the corn.

Lots of extra butter…

Time to shake, rattle and roll with my dates….

More good movie picks later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Lover Come Back! Good Friday Doris Day Marathon!

April 6th, 2012 - 9:09 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Good Friday Lovers!  As in….Lover Come Back!  OMDawg, this is the best movie ever.  Mad Men has nothing on this movie!

But prior to tuning in I must get my own Mad Man in order…

Scrambled eggs in his dinner
Cyst cleaned with warm compresses and Neosporin applied
A dab of eye medicine in each eye
One tablet of Culturelle for his digestive system
One baby aspirin for his arthritis
One Glucosamine and Chondrotin for his arthritis
One Pepcide AC for his acid reflux
Coconut oil rubbed on his neck for his tiny hot spot
A warm rag to clean his face
A non salted french fry, or 3, as a treat
His pillow fluffed

And down he went for his early evening nap with Emma.  (Her list is just as long but she is not a Mad Man.  She is the Doris Day type.  Strong and Beautiful!)

Lovers come back!


I need 3 martinis and a pencil skirt!  NOT!

Just a glass of wine and my Doris Day movie marathon….What a Day it has been!

More loving LOVER COME BACK…later…Cat, Chaps and Emma

Friday Nite Movie Nite

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and

Endangered Animals: Gorillas…98.6% Human lovers…

Wanna see a great movie?




We took a break from grid iron to go see Iron Lady…

February 6th, 2012 - 1:01 pm KY Time

Wow, yesterday was the Super Bowl of course and not being a fan of football I was working on sorting some pictures. Also, my Mom and I went to see Iron Lady with Meryl Streep.  OK, Meryl will win the oscar for this.  No doubt about it.  Howl ever, the script writers, IMO should be given an F.  There is nothing worse than sitting in a movie and wondering when is it going to actually get underway? Well, this thing never did.  I came out of the theater actually shocked.  I don’t know all that much about Margaret Thatcher but enough to know there was much more interesting stuff in her life than this movie had to offer.  Gawd, this could have been so much better. I checked out IMD after we got home and I was not alone.


I had the game on later that evening and I was laughing at myself because I had no idea what was going on but everyone seemed so excited and it made it fun.  Cris Collinsworth lives in my home town, about 1 minute from my house.  It was nice watching him as well.

I was also sorting through old pictures and had to share these 2.  They have nothing to do with the Grid Iron or the Iron Lady, just our little lady….Shimlette….


I thought we would hug the fur right off of her body…..


She sure was Grandpa’s girl.

Hope all of the residents had a nice weekend and a great Monday….Love, Cat, Chaps and little ruling our home with an iron paw….Shimmers…

Waterworld and howl it relates to Emma….

December 31st, 2011 - 2:02 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Emma relating to the movie Waterworld Lovers……

Well, actually there is no real connection, except for the fact that she was putting on a better show than the movie itself.  I have seen Waterworld before, back in 1995 when it came out.  I was not impressed then and I was not last night.  I wanted to like it.  I love the actors that were in it.  Anyway, Miss Shimlette was putting on a better show.


Herz started flopping back and forth like a fish…

Flop little girl flop like a fish!

Then she started rubbing behind her ears checking for gills.  Remember?  Kevin Costner was part fish and had gills behind his ears?

photo 4

Oh Emma… are so cute. Kevin with the gills, not so much

Some howl I made it to the end and yes, it was just as bad as I remembered it.

More glad Emma didn’t suffer through it and enjoyed herself…..

Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

Saving Valentina….a whale of a tail

July 17th, 2011 - 6:06 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and Hump Back Whale Lovers.  Today my Mom sent me this inspiring link about a group of family and friends that band together to save a young whale.  Get ready for a wild and fascinating journey into pure joy.  (might want to get a hankie….)

More loving my Mom’s finds later….Cat, Chaps and Emma

Cat’s Movie Pick – Friday night 7-15-11 – Mao’s Last Dancer!

July 15th, 2011 - 7:07 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and get ready for a great movie pick lovers!  OMD!  I fell in love with this movie last night and I could not wait to share it with the residents of bassethoundtown.  It is called Mao’s Last Dancer, adapted from the biography of the same name.


We give this movie 10 paws up.  4 for Chaps, 4 for Emma and 2 for me!

One day, a delegation from Madame Mao’s Beijing Dance Academy arrived at Li’s commune school to find suitable children to study ballet and serve in Chairman Mao’s revolution. At first they passed Li without taking any notice, but just as they were walking out of his classroom, the class teacher hesitated, and suddenly tapped the last gentleman from Beijing on the shoulder and pointed. `What about that boy?’.  And that boy was Li Cunxin.


Put this movie on your list to view and enjoy.  Pop some corn, put your hounds on the couch and get ready to wish this movie was twice as long as it is.

More movie picks later…..Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma
