Is it spring yet?
Don't have a lot to report this week. My FB friends already know I got into an accident on Valentine's Day, of all days. Not my fault but my car will be out of commission for awhile. What a drag!
Did see a movie I enjoyed last weekend, though..The Descendants. Clooney at his best.
And apropos to nothing, been watching reruns of The Rifleman (with Chuck Connors) What a sweet show--the relationship between Lucas and his son keeps me coming back for more even though I didn't watch the show when it first aired all those years ago.
What a great face! If you're curious, here's a website to check out. He died in 1992. Wikipedia has a bio here
He played baseball for the Brooklyn Dodgers, among others. Always had those great cheekbones.

So here we are half-way through February. Sick of cold. Sick of snow. As my good pal Betty Harper said on her Valentine, "I'm thinking the perfect gift would be a week in the sun and our toes in the sand. I'm guessing, however, that we might have to settle for chocolate..."
Bummer about the accident. I completely empathize. Last month when I was coming home after visiting friends one evening I was rear ended and the perpetrator took off. It wasn't my fault AT ALL, but because the **@#% pulled a hit and run I have to come up with my deductible. Grrrr!
I cannot wait to see Abe Lincoln swing that axe at the vamps.
No 'The Descendents' for us. It's 'Journey 2: Mysterious Island' and 'The Borrowers' (or whatever Disney is calling it) on Monday...chickie day for Lady K and me. I am going to try to see 'Ghost Rider 2' and/or 'This Means War' on Tues or Wed.
