Good morning everyone it's a bit cloudy this morning, we had some lovely sunshine yesterday, hope you all did too. There was a picture posted on FB of our local main road to the nearest small town. It looked like a lake, unsurprisingly I haven't been out. I will try and copy it on here if I can.

 

Enjoy your day everyone

Good morning everyone

 

After a misty start it's going to be another sunny day here though not particularly warm.

 

Yogi, I'm glad your arm is no longer aching

 

Client coming here to drop off their files later this morning, routine & straightforward

 

Squiggle, I hope the flooding in your area recedes quickly

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Thanks Yogi The client has fairly straightfoward accounts - he'll pass me a memory stick with the spreadsheets he's created and supporting papers. He will probably have looked at his previous year's spreadsheets annd used them as a template for this year. I tend to find little errors on his spreadsheets - clerical rather than deliberate. In terms of clients, I've known him as a client longer than any other. He was one of my first clients, though ceased to be self-employed for many years until he started again and came back to me. He's a lot more organised than he was back then. We sometimes joke about the time when I spent a couple of hours whilst he was searching for documents in the small flat he was living in at the time.

You probably haven't heard of Orangey the cat. During the 1950s and 1960s he was in a number of films and television series.

 

Here are a couple of clips from films his role was of note.

Firstly from the 1957 science-fiction/horror film "The Incredible Shrinking Man" where the man has shrunk to the size where he's living in a doll's house:

Secondly, from Breakfast at Tiffany's (the final scene):

Funny you posted that El. I looked up Sykes last night. Sorry to read he died in June/July       All round dog acting star. Fostered out when he was no use. Thought that was heartless. Some resume and star of Midsomer. Loved him. Advert of the Year   

Sykes was with one foster family from when he retired until he died. Neil Dudgeon and Gwilym Lee gave him a retirement dog bed which he slept in at that foster family. He was 13 when he retired. In human terms that would be 91.

Orson Welles: "The Fountain of Youth" (1958):

He made it for television with the hope that it might lead to a series. That never happened, neither did the "next week's" story he mentions at the end. This is the only TV work of fiction he directed.

An old British film "The Ghost Camera" (1933):

Very early acting role for the leading lady Ida Lupino who later directed quite a number of films.
The film was edited by David Lean before he became a major film director.
Very early acting role for John Mills who was in quite a number of David Lean's films - this would be the first time.

 

So for a film you are unlikely to have ever heard of or seen, it's quite a notable film.

Miss the dog Moons. Two years ago round about today.

 

That's why I like the fact Baz's got a cat.

 

If it's got four legs I'm in. Now's too tricky though.  

Awww, I know how you feel about your dogs Velvet 

I’m pleased she has too 

They say time is a good healer. I’m not sure that is always the case but we live in hope 🙂

I bet you’re pleased he is a bit more organised nowadays

got a cat as well - lubbs her - -she is a rescue cat  and 4 yeas old - got her at 9 weeks old and only just properly trusting us i.e wants  fusses constantly and wanting to be really close

Good morning everyone it's fairly cloudy but the forecast is dry for most of the week. Thanks Velvet the grocery delivery is due this morning and I know my grandson will always help with anything I may run short of. 

 

Enjoy your day everyone

Good morning everyone

 

Cloudy but dry here.

 

Squiggle, it's good that your grandson is able to help if you were to run short of anything

 

Velvet, Ida Lupino directed a few American film noir films in the 1950s such as The Hitch-hiker (1953) and The Bigamist (1953). She also directed quite a number of episodes of American TV series.

 

I hope everyone has a good day
