Is it cold and snowy where you are? Icy winds and gray skies?
I recommend arm chair travel....start in the working world of Great Britain and end up in the Greek Isles! Simply get you hands on a copy of "Shirley Valentine" a movie from 20 years ago which is still fun!
It is about a "40-something" homemaker who leaves her "small world" and goes on a vacation to Greece. This leads to more possibilites!







I first saw "Shirley Valentine" while visiting my friend Macrina. This week, I am planning to again visit Macrina, who is now recuperating from hip surgery.
I will be taking my friend Karen, who is recuperating from a broken arm, to meet Macrina. Karen is staying with us for a couple of weeks...
So while there may not be much sunshine around here this time of year ('though Arkansas does get more than many of you!) we will be sharing the warmth of friendship. I will try to post more about our visit later in the week.
My job really takes my time these days....funny thing about that! My computer and blogging time is limited! I hope to get around and visit more blogs, a few at a time!

I would love to find that movie and watch it. I'm glad you're making time for your friends! That's the BEST!

I love, love, love "Shirley Valentine". It is on my list of the 10 best "Little Movies". I will have to post that list sometime. I haven't seen it now for quite a while. I don't have Netflix at the moment so will have to wait a while longer.

This is one of my favorite movies!! In fact I think I have it listed in my Blogger profile. I saw it back in the early 90's and just fell in love with it.

That is one of my favorite movies and I watch it every so often because I love it so much. Have you watched Bread and Tulips? You'll love it, too.

I haven't seen Shirley Valentine for ages, but it's pure delight. As soon as the credits started to roll the first time I saw it, I called my long-time friend (who hadn't seen it and didn't have a clue what I was talking about) and asked, "When are we leaving?"
