Lucy's very favorite spot for her afternoon nap.
 
Here are my answers to this weeks questions:
1. Happiness is being married to your best friend .
2. Ten years ago, I truly retired.
3. Laughing with friends is the best medicine.
4. Most people don’t know that I am a liberal conservative.
Fiscally conservative and socially liberal.
Have a lovely Friday!

Pretty pansies in a purple pot,  but what
caught my attention were the little pansies
coming up in between the pavers. Too cute!
Have a great day!

Customer Service at Couch Critics Movies and Games
Mt Shasta, California
 
Crash will help you find just the right movie for
your evening's entertainment!
James Cannon now refers to the Mount Shasta movie
store he started in 2005 as “the last unicorn in the forest.”
The movie business has changed drastically over the years with the rise of Netflix and other streaming services and the closing of businesses such as Blockbuster, but Couch Critics Movies and Games remains one of the last independent movie stores in California.

It was as if my mother had stuck it in there
as she used to sing this little poem
to me when I was in bed going to sleep.
