It's time for Pink Saturday
Because of my cold -- thankfully, "just" a cold -- I haven't been out taking many pictures and was at a loss for Pink Saturday this week. I decided to return to the 6,600+ pictures I've taken in the last five years and find a fun one. I present the multi-colored French bulldog, taken in a gift shop in an Atlantic City casino hotel in September.
When I looked at the picture tonight, Humphrey Bogart's line from "Casablanca" popped up in my mind, "Here's looking at you, kid." Not surprisingly, because I am a huge fan of Casablanca and can count the number of times I've seen it. Do you have favorite movies that you've seen many times and can just about recite all of the dialogue? I haven't seen it as many times, but "Steel Magnolias" is on that list. The third film that comes to mind is "Meet Me in St. Louis." Yes, I still cry at the end of all three of them.
I used to be a tremendous movie-goer, but have cut down in the last ten years. I did get to the movies several times in the last few months and especially enjoyed "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," "Harriet" and "Judy." Strong acting in all three films and I was happy to see that the stars in all three, Tom Hanks, Cynthia Erivo and Renee Zellweger, have been nominated for Oscars.
What are some of the movies you've enjoyed most? Anything from 2019 that makes your favorites list?
Today's purchases were groceries and cough drops, both permitted on the spending list. Because I'm not out and about as much in the last few days, I've been eating at home and haven't stopped for snacks while I'm out. I've upped my spending on groceries, but that is still less expensive than eating out. I'm still not a fan of the air fryer, but I made potato crisps tonight. It wasn't a nice salty bag of potato chips, but it cost about $.50 for the potatoes versus $2.00 for the bag of chips that caught my eye at the drugstore this afternoon. Potato savings: $1.50.
My savings total as of January 17: $81.95
Our next post pays tribute to one of the great institutions of New York. I hope you'll stop by to celebrate the 125th birthday of the New York Public Library.
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
