It has been a rainy couple of days, and it’s once again dark out on the patio. I like days like this. Give me thunder along with the rain and I’m happy.
Is it weird to like thunder?
Yesterday I watched a movie from the nineties on Prime.
It had quite a few recognizable actors in it. We don’t tend to see some of them anymore.
I wonder what actors do when there is no TV or movie work? How do they make a living if they don’t have enough movie/TV royalties to live off of?
Sometimes they just seem to fade into obscurity.
So many actors saw hard times, I imagine, during COVID when things were shut down.
Night Falls On Manhatten:
The film is about a newly elected district attorney played by Andy García. He vows to stamp out corruption within the New York City police department.
But then he finds out that his father and his partner may be involved in that corruption.
Wasn’t Andy Garcia a handsome devil? He’s a year older than me, I learned via the internet. So he’s 66.
I am listening to pianist Jim Brickman play music from The Carpenters. He makes such beautiful music and their songs were so melodic.
The Carpenters take me way back to when I was a teen.
All the old music seems so much better than the stuff of today. But then I suppose all seniors think that, huh? I suppose it’s generational.
What Is Happening Today:
I’m getting a Whole Foods order this afternoon. I am hungry for baked potatoes. Maybe I’ll make a tuna casserole. Tuna is the only meat I’m currently eating.
My cholesterol was a little on the high side according to my last lab work, so I’m trying to bring it down a bit. I sure don’t want to take more medication than I have to.
Right now I’m not drinking caffeine either. It tends to irritate my bladder.
I’m thinking forward to cold days with my little electric stove warming the room. I enjoyed seeing it snow last year. Snow coming down and the warmth from my little stove would be nice.
Don’t you feel nice and cozy in colder weather when you don’t need to go out? When you’re warm inside and making soup or stew?
Are you looking forward to days like that? Or are you a hot weather and sunny days person?
