Movie night!


Okay, last one from the weekend’s flower shows. Yes, that is a people-sized replica of Oscar. Where this little village church got so much gold foil, I do not know.

The theme of this flower show was — duh — favorite movies and it was loads of wholesome fun. Let’s end the week with a little quiz, shall we?

Can you guess what movie this flower arrangement represents? No? I cheated; I had the program. Here’s your answer. Heh.

Okay, how about this one? That’s a little easier. Answer.

Right. Last one. Look closely for clues in the props. And the answer is this one! In church. Near the pulpit.

There were loads more, but those were the most fun.

Not much on this weekend. Nothing tomorrow, and a ploughing match on Sunday. I don’t plough much these days; lower back trouble. Good weekend, all!

I thought the first one was The Birdcage.

I should have known it would be wittier than that.

One of the many things I like about this site: Heaps of Culcha.

We’re back baby.

It was a dcma deal over Kathy Ireland pics of all things.
Here I try to introduce her to a new generation and she tells me to stop.

The warning emails went to an email addy nobody checked.

ploughing match

I had no idea it was so competitive. Hopefully Uncle Badger can pick up some style points.

I thought the first one was “The Lilies of the Field.” If I’d been wearing my glasses, I might have figured out the second one—because I could tell that it was a camp fire but I couldn’t read the cans! All the flower arrangements were so beautifully done. What lovely neighbors you have.

Oddly enough, my first reaction to the first one was “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” but I thought to myself, thought I “Nah. No nest–and anyway, cuckoos don’t actually have nests in the first place–and why would there be a cage, and that bird isn’t flying over anything.”

Sigh. I have way too literal a mind.

Wrong on the first but got the second. The third, well. Let’s just say, after being informed of the nature of the, er, drapery, I’m not surprised I didn’t pick up on that clue. Gawdalmighty.

Not coincidentally, the only movie of the three I’ve seen is the second one.

Georgia Angelopoulos, a very talented Canadian artist/calligrapher, is in the UK touring and taking classes. All the famous calligraphers are commenting on her facebook page. As one who dabbles in calligraphy, I find it very entertaining. I also got a kick out of her going to an armour museum and commenting how the armour would be inspirational to gilding. She also has access to a number of special libraries and has photos of pieces done by Edward Johnston and Irene Wellington. Anyway, it made me think of this place bc Johnston notes on one piece that he did it for a “village show”. 🙂

Neon, I don’t know what to say.
It works for me when I sign out of Word Press and my phone.
I’ve put up 3 or 4 posts and had some comments welcoming me back.

Works for me. What kind of error message are you getting, Neon? Maybe you’re seeing a cached page?

It worked for him, I think you were right Stoaty, it was a cached page.

We should go radio silent more often.

Our biggest day in months, reader-wise, was the day we got shut down.

Is it just me or does this rendition in B&W look more like Gort than Oscar?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
