Kittens in the House

It's me, Little Neal.  We have a house full of kittens, plus the hillbilly cat, Flynn, plus two outdoor feral cats who look like bears.  I'm sick of it.  don't you want a kitten?  We have four.  Please contact mom, cjjohns@tds.net.  We're in Georgia, near Jekyll Island.  

the Postman Always Rings Twice

Lana Turner, one of the stars of "The Postman Always Rings Twice."

This 1946 film, based on the novel by James M. Cain was the third adaptation, one French and the other Italian.  It was thought for a long time that the novel was unable to be adapted into a film because of Hayes Office objections to the content.  But, after the successful adaptation of Cain's other two novels (Double Indemnity and Mildred Pierce) the studios were interested to film it.  

This film is considered to be one of the best of the films in the genre of Film Noir.

Errol Flynn


   This is Flynn.  He's moved into our house.  He doesn't get what's going on with the water and the drain.  I've told him over and over, but he's just amazed.  This is what I'm trying to deal with: a hillbilly cat.  It's me, Little Neal.

Mom and Dad are Leaving

Mom and Dad are going away again, to Austin.  They're leaving me here with the new sociopath hillbilly cat.  Uncle John's coming over to stay with us, but he's not going to get up at 4 AM and save me when the hillbilly gets on a psycho tear at 4 AM.  I don't like it.

I told them that the stupid cat was outside, but I didn't count on him MOVING IN.  The other ferals know their place.  Robert, the former feral, he stayed outside and kept his distance.
