Are you ready for fall? Walking outside is like going straight into a sauna. Yep, ready for fall. Which for us will not be until probably late October or November.
I just read an email from my daughter. Last night when she was putting Andrew to bed, she noticed that he was missing his first tooth. She asked him about it. He told her he pulled it out at school and put it in the trash.
My daughter said he’d been complaining a little bit about his tooth hurting. But she had not noticed any that were loose.
She asked him if he told the teacher and he said no, as if losing his first tooth was commonplace. But he said some of the other kids at daycare saw him do it.
He had not heard of the tooth fairy yet, so he didn’t know to keep it. So his dad wrote a note to the tooth fairy and put it under his pillow, I suppose explaining the situation.
My daughter said she somehow thought that losing his first tooth was supposed to be a monumental occasion.
What was it Art Linkletter said about kids? “Kids say the darndest things.” In this case, I suppose it would more accurately be “Kids say and do the darndest things.”
Some of you probably don’t know who I’m referring to. If you don’t, Google Art Linkletter. It was a long time ago.
I watched the last two episodes of “Rectify” last night. And cried throughout both. What a wonderful series! I just wish it would continue. I shall miss watching it each night. I watched four seasons.
Until I signed up for Netflix, I didn’t think TV had much to offer me anymore. But I’ve come to really love the handful of Netflix series I’ve watched so far.
I was completely floored by “Rectify.” If you haven’t seen it, there’s no real way to accurately explain it. Some of the episodes were difficult to watch, but I may watch it all over again.
“Rectify” was poignant and the acting was so, so wonderful. I’d never even seen the actor who played Daniel Holden, but wow, was he good!
Aden Young, who plays Daniel Holden, is a Canadian-Australian actor. But he sounded nothing like a Canadian-Australian. He was Southern to the core. I really want to see what else I can watch him in.
As for the rest of the cast, I’d only seen a few of the actors in bit parts before, but they all knocked it out of the ball park.
This series was Sundance Channel’s first wholly owned scripted series, I read. Well then they have a very bright future.
“Rectify” was just very, very special.
