Why Eat Cake when you can Eat Blue-Tailed Skenk

It's me, Little Neal.  Mom and Dad went to Jacksonville yesterday and had this Gran Marnier cake they like so much.  I don't get it myself.   They have thumbs and can eat anything, why would you want this?  A fat blue-tailed skenk would be much better. 

Novel/Movie: 3:10 to Yuma

St. Simons Novel/Movie Series

Today we are showing 3:10 to Yuma (2007).  We watched and discussed the 1957 version with Glenn Ford on Monday.  Looking forward to the discussion today.  I don't like the 2007 version nearly as much as the 1957 version.  We'll see what everybody else thinks.

Me and Mom

This is a picture of me and Mom years ago when she finished her first fiction book.  I was tired of posing.  She's going to San Francisco to do a one-woman show based on the stories in the book.  I don't know why we can't do a catwoman show.  What am I supposed to do while she's gone?  They're leaving us with that man who smells like a dog again.  He smells like a wienie dog.  He wants to be friends, but I'm not that easy. 

Classic Movie: 3:10 to Yuma

Last night's classic movie: 3:10 to Yuma (2007).  O.K.  It's a good movie, but not nearly as good as the 1957 version with Glenn Ford and Van Heflin.  First of all, it needed a good editor.  It was way too long.  Second, there is no way Russell Crowe could ever be as charming a bad boy as Glenn Ford, even though Crowe says he's the best actor in the history of the theatre.  The neat thing about Glenn Ford is that he actually likes women, you can tell it by the way he looks at them.

Neal on the Mini

It's a rainy summer afternoon and all I have to do is play kitty viddy on the mini.  

End of the Summer Squash

Its the end of the summer squash for us in South Georgia.  Can't wait until next year.  .

New China Restaurant

This is one of those places you wouldn't notice unless somebody recommended it to you.  My two buddies did so yesterday after we went to see Dunkirk.  It's perfectly reasonable and the Sweet and Sour Soup is really good.  The discussion about Dunkirk was great as well.  It's the first movie I've been interested in seeing in a year.  The previews were pretty gruesome though.

Neal and the Egrets

Mom and I've been up all night, but I finally got her to take me for a walk.  Those are the egrets having breakfast on the marsh.  The egrets are neat birds.  They stand really still or long periods of time, just waiting for the right fish and the right chance to come along.  They're kind of like cats in that.

Mom says Great Egrets are protected now so that people won't try to kill them for their feathers.  I think they are beautiful (even if they are sort of big, bigger than any tweet ought to be).

Glenn Ford and Women

This is a still from the 1957 version of 3:10 to Yuma.  The movie is based on a short story by Elmore Leonard.  In the film, Ford has a soft spot for women. But, this is a plot line that didn't appear in the story.  For my money, though it's always fun to watch Glenn Ford with women.  I think he must have had what Rhett Butler called "a way with women."

Com and join us for a discussion and showing of the 1957, 3:10 to Yuma at the St. Simons Public Library, August 21, 2 PM.

Robert ate Breakfast

Morning everyone.  It's me, Little Neal.  I'm ready to go for my morning walk.  Well, actually I've been ready for two hours.  Somebody ate Robert's breakfast on the front porch.  We hope it was Robert.  Well, mom hopes it was Robert.  I don't really care (don't tell mom).
