Stolen

These two have stolen our hearts...

...and yes, this picture was stolen from their mama's facebook page!

Ch Ch Changes

Putter is quite upset that the "forest" (as Ellie would say) next door has disappeared!  Actually, it's the noise from the machinery that has really sent him over the edge and into exile.  :)   The rest of us down in our little corner are excited to welcome new neighbors to the 'hood!

Anyone else thinking about David Bowie?

The Help

I read The Help when it came out in 2009 (recommended by Karin Gillespie) and was blown away.  In 2010, it was a Bluestocking selection and I read it again, gladly. Hosting that meeting was so much fun: planning the menu, setting the table, and making everyone an apron!  The Help was a unanimous favorite and we were delighted to learn that it was going to be a movie.
  
Read the book!
It's not often that a movie lives up to the book upon which it is based.  To Kill A Mockingbird is one that does.  The Help is another.  The casting is brilliant, the set amazing, and the wardrobe perfect.  Readers of the book will recognize all of the important scenes and will appreciate new ones that follow the spirit of the book.  It's worth seeing at least once (twice so far for me).  
Go see the movie!
I honestly believe that The Help, both book and movie, are future classics.

Side Notes:
  • Bryce Dallas Howard has acting chops to rival her dad's.
  • The sofa in Hilly's house is the same as the one in my mama's house, although with a different fabric.
  • Loved seeing the Fostoria American glasses on the tables at meal time.
  • Did anyone else notice that Nate Berkus was listed as an Executive Producer?
