    Dear DB~

    Well, Croixy reminds me of Roxy Music, so that's OK. Thanks for thinking of me, I've been a bit busy and not popped in to talk with you, though I think you are talking a fair bit with Pepper, Karen and SN and all, pretty good.

    I noticed you mentioned Starwolf, someone I like very much, however I've not seen here here for a while now. People come and go I guess.

    I've a new dog (Foxy Dog) who is on the whole pretty good, but thinks cats are an excuse to play chases (the cats disagree and are most upset). Foxy came from the pound and now owns the place - typical.

    I hope you are managing ok too

    Hiya Croix

    Good to see the resident walrus is travelling okay. I'd been wondering about you. I read a post yesterday that I raised my eyebrows at, it gave me the impression perhaps everything wasn't so good.

    Great to hear you have a new pet. Foxy Dog sounds cute, but, hmmm, poor cats. Do feel a little sorry for them. However, if they're anything like mine, they give as good as they get.

    So, I just had to check. I don't have to worry about keeping things on track. LOL. Loved the opening post about things that don't fit elsewhere.

    That's all. Just a quick check in to say hi and see you're doing okay.

    Kind regards

    Hello Croix,

    I often read here, but not post much. But tonight I had to..

    Thank you for purchasing and saving a dog from the pound..Foxy dog love the name, and when I read about foxy dog playing chasing with the cats , it brought a smile to my face...poor cats , but I'm sure the cats will put foxy dog in its place..but I doubt you will put foxy dog in its place, I can hear the love through your words for your new little dog.. I hope you both have some great times together..

    Warm and caring hugs.

    Grandy..

    Dear PamelaR~

    Thanks for checking, I'm not sure which post that was. I've some non MH hassles and they do unfortunately color my posts at times, but I'm OK.

    Yes because this Forum does not have hte ability to flag a person's attention when I first stared I found it very difficult to contact anyone that did not have an active thread, so I started this one for others to talk wiht me, and it sort of grew. Prior to that I did not have one of my own.

    I've happily enjoyed talking about the arts here, something a large number of people are interested in. It's given me a lot of pleasure following up their recommendations for songs, movies books and so on.

    May I ask what sort of things you like?

    You have been a bit quiet the last few days so I'm realy pleased to see you posting again

    Dear Grandy~

    I think animals from the pound are great, and with a very few exceptions all our animals have come from there. Both cats (Nasty and Sumo) plus Foxy Dog are all bitsas and probably more healthy because of it. I could never volunteer at the pound, it would be so sad. Unfortunately there never seem to be enough potential owners.

    I"m not sure how long it will take the cats to pluck up courage and stand up to Foxy, she is very quick and agile (with big ears). The cats disappear under the bed and wait for me to explain to Foxy they do not want to play.

    Now I come to think of it we do have one animal at the moment not from the pound, it is P.A.Possum. (P A stands for passive aggressive). I had to get rid of PA's tree as it was dangerous (I do not like getting rid of trees but like a squashed house even less.)

    PA decided to take up residence in the roof of my workshop, which was sort of fair under the circumstances, however he insisted on knocking everything of the shelves. I explained this was not on, but PA just stared at me, and when I left went back and knocked everything off again.

    We have not as yet reached a mutually agreeable arrangement.

    Anyway Grandy nice to talk to someone without a NZ accent, at least I can understand (hope DB is not listening)

    Dear Croix

    Yes, you may ask away.

    I'm very eclectic in my likes. To be honest, I'm not set to one type or one sort at all. The painting artists that I love include - Picasso, Van Gough, Dali (note the spanish influence :) ). Not a great one for the modern art work, however, do like the works of Jeffrey Smart (saw his exhibition at the Yarra Valley Art Gallery some years ago), Russell Drysdale. You will find me at times wandering through art galleries around the place. Art work gives my soul a peace of mind. There is something very peaceful about it. I have two pieces in my place that we bought at one of the city's art galleries that we frequent when new exhibitions are launched. One is of a frog that is emerging into life of the rainforest. The other is a scene of spoonbills. Other pieces I have include - a possum, a gum tree. So you can see my tastes are all over the place.

    I also very much love photography, have a few pieces up on our wall (including my own).

    Love movies that make me laugh or use some of my adrenaline (action type movies). I'm much more inclined to watch productions from Britain, Europe and Asia, than from the US. I actually don't mind a sad French movie. But can't stand a Hollywood sad movie.

    Ahh music. Give me classical these days. I do love live performances, though unable to afford it now. There was a period in my life I loved folk music and was very much in 'the scene'. I particularly was very fond of songs that had social significance. There were many by Judy Small, Eric Bogle, Silly Sisters, plus, plus, plus. Unfortunately my ears can pick up every wrong note these days and it's not pleasant. Folkies aren't know for their perfectionism. So classical it is.

    I learnt classical flute and tried to transition to folk. LOL (that's all I can say). Tried the tin whistle and bodhran for awhile. Then more recently (in the past 6 years) started to play a digital keyboard. This was while I was recovering from my breakdown. Well, while I love the piano (and keyboard), I had to finally admit I would never become a proficient pianist. That's okay though, I then picked up a camera.

    How about yourself. I'm sure you have lots of stories in your 16 pages of posts. Hmmm, can you give me a summary to help me out... please :)

    Yes, I am happy I'm posting again. Just a slight hiccup.

    PamelaR.

    Hello Croix,

    Thank you for your post.. We always got our dogs from pounds, except the two I have now..mummy and daughter..Never a angry growl between them..

    I loved hearing about PA possum, it sounds adorablely mischevious, I hope you can work his living quarters out and teach him to tidy up after he finishes playing... you will no doubt miss PA Possum if he decides to move on..it sounds like you have some great times with your fur family..great memories are made from great times..

    Thank you Croix for your time...and sharing your little fur family with me/ others..

    Warm hugs,

    Grandy..

    Dear PamelaR et al.~

    OK a potted view, totally misleading because there is simply too much.

    Arts - well in painting I like Impressionism, things not always clearly stated, some of Turner or Monet would be a start. Mind you I like fun too, Ms Piggy as the Mona Lisa (entitled "Mona Moi")is the sot of whimsical humor I enjoy. There used to be a photoshop site called Worth1000 where people adapted all sorts of original images, some funny some serious.

    Dali I like, actually I think one I really appreciate is his sister at the window, almost real and the harbor beyond reminds me of a place I grew up. Most of the art in my house is from my family and is pretty eclectic. I did manage to score three Mucha prints on astronomical figures (moon etc) which are quite large.

    Don't like sad movies at all nowadays, happy endings rule:) Just watched Amélie for the umpteenth time. Will start re-watching some of Goddard's work soon if I feel brave (Alphaville, Tout va bien etc). I've a very large number of movies and TV shows plus books -need a larger house :(

    With live performances I like theater (studied drama for a little while) but prefer theater of the absurd, which is not that popular in a rural environment. As I've mentioned before Waiting for Godot is a favorite.

    Songs about social things? well Manu Chao "Rainin' In Paradize" thought to Tom Waits "God's Away On Business" (the Muppet version is good too:)

    Female flutist? perhaps Bolero Ravel played by Jane Rutter is good if a tad gentle, I once saw Russian dance group doing this piece, overwhelming.

    Photographs, I can't even get a good shot of the pa possum:( I do like realistic social images, example Weegee. Looking at Vivian Maier atm. I do a fair amount of technical photography and digitization, but this is far removed from art.

    I'm sure that is more than enough to be getting on with. Do you like theater?

    Dear DB et al.~

    Oh dear you were listening after all :( Sadly I think your slow careful speak is just as hard to understand (what do you expect from a walrus anyway?)

    Foxy Dog is locked in the kitchen at the moment and Sumo Cat is sitting beside me purring - which is loud enough to be distracting. Dunno where Nasty Cat has skulked off to. We are enjoying the wood fire, blowing and raining outside. Nothing like being snug. I'm sitting in a wing-backed chair doing my Alistair Cookie impression:) (see YouTube if you have never come across Monsterpiece Theater.)

    Talking of flute music, do you like the solo in California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas ?

    You take care too DB

    Heya yeah we're pretty patient in Oz, ya know the language thing but hey some ones gotta teach em 😃

    Ohh that sounds so snug, I love the cooler mths, not being cold but cooler and things like that and extra blankets way cosier. Sleepings easier too I think

    No I havent heard much flute except these couple of cds I think we may have scored garage saling or a friend moving and Grandy mentioned through I think Tony about Leo Rojas. I'll check yours out.

    It's such a peaceful amazing sound love it. And birdies singing too ☺

    Thank you re me taking care too

    Hope your days good 🕊

    Hi Croix et al

    Ah, the sound of a purring cat. Nothing more relaxing and peaceful, unless it's not intended as a relaxation. I've heard they have 2 types of purrs, one when they are feeling swoony and the other when they're cranky. I think I've learnt to distinguish between the 2.

    Sitting next to a fire place sounds wonderful. (A little jealous actually.) Never gets cold enough here.

    Yes, the flute is beautiful DB. Unfortunately I had a bad relationship with it. I could hear every wrong note, every bad timing. The harder I practised the worse it became. Had I known then that it was anxiety, I could have probably done something. Anyway. I love listening to it, including California Dreaming (Mamas and Papas), as well as Pink Floyd. I used to jam along while listening to their LPs. Loved the works of James Galway too. Bolero, well definitely unable to play sorry Croix. But it is awesome, extremely powerful. I have seen it performed and it truly evoked lots of emotions.

    Also Manu Chao. Aren't they the best!! Have 2 of their albums. Clandestino and Bongo Bong.

    Theatre Croix, oh yes! Loved the local theatre companies in a few cities I've been in. Always supported them by going to their productions. Not musicals though...ugh. Can't stand them. Drama, comedy - all okay. I remember going to see Hamlet and there was a work colleague in the cast. Shakespeare is funny from my perspective. During the performance you'd hear me LOL. Well, the next day my work colleague gave me what for, about my laughter. He wasn't too bad about it and truthfully I didn't care, because to me it was funny.

    Since I arrived back in the city I'm living now, I've not been to a production. Correction, local theatre company production. Saw a Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at the city's major theatre. Just been too busy. Haven't had time to organise myself to get to a local production. Hopefully I make time for this in the future. Always loved them.

    I'm absolutely sure i've seen Mona Moi. Hilarious. I'll have a look at the Worth1000 site. Sounds good.

    Isn't Amélie just one of the best French movies you'd hope to see. Exquisite, very poignant. Have you ever seem Smilla's Feeling for Snow? Loved it! Read the book too - beautiful thriller story set in Copenhagen and Greenland.

    Photography of Vivian is truly special. Such a social history and story she captured through the lens. I try to make some of my photography artistic, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Depends on how I am that day.

    Pam

    Dear PamelaR et al.~
    Sumo Cat only purrs because pleased, Nasty Cat hisses and would not dream of purring under any circumstances. Has mastered the baleful glare.

    I can’t say I ever found the Big Bill that funny, and unless done very well I am ashamed to say a tad on the lengthy side for me. Everyone wants to be Hamlet:(

    Actually wanabees that do vanity pieces can be a pain. So often the original cannot be surpassed, everything from 12 Angry Men to The Taking of Pelham 123 (though the 3rd remake was OK) to Psycho.

    We do seem to have something in common, I’m not keen on most musicals either, though I do enjoy The Rocky Horror Show, plus of course light opera (G&S).

    I did see Smilla's Feeling for Snow a long time ago, have not read the book. Much better than the recent The Snowman, which was a little graphic for me. If you like Amélie try MicMacs by the same director if you have not already.

    You may have some difficulties finding Worth100 as it was swallowed up by a larger concern, though I believe the original work is still in there somewhere.

    DB: ta for the language lesson:) I used to like garage sales too, though not so much opportunity recently, still do op-shops though. So much is thrown away it's silly.

    I'd agree wiht you about the peace in music, and also find sound effects of the sea and waves, plus rain on he roof, the very best things.

    Once again I'm snug in front of the fire, though Sumo has wandered off looking for cat biscuits.

    Croixy Pammy and all 🤕 Ms halarious here I have a migraine hence the bandaged head emoji 🙃 yip that's about how it is ☺

    Croixy your welcome re lingo lesson, hey some ones gotta do it 😄

    I don't like musicals either although I recorded Olivia Newton John. She seems a genuinely lovely grounded tough lady.

    I watched again last night taking of Pelham 123, pretty much anything Travoltas in I enjoy if it's not too heavy in story, liked him in the one where the stars did something mentally to him and he gained psych abilities. Pammy I don't watch as much action these days but do like it, I tend to enjoy dramas true stories martial arts and sci fi still watch Star trek voyager tho I've seen most.

    Got a couple of Janet Evanovich bounty hunter books love her she's brilliant easy reading think we spoke of her Pammy (hope you're back on deck huns 🤗😚)

    Yes Croixy op shoppings pretty much as good as garage saling, I might be able to gee up a couple to put petrol in and go occasionally again it is crazy what some get rid of. You here about fortunes people make from some, how'd ya be not knowing and selling it for a penny 😲 🤤 😭

    I don't listen that often to music but am starting to suss relaxing meditational which reminds me to add to a thread sometime a very peaceful and scientifically proven to be one of the best in that genre. I like varied stuff not opera either tho what talent.Music brings peace and happiness, surfaces emotions and sparks memories of good times. Yes sea waves lovely, and rain on roofs comforting isnt it. Birdies too are probs up there with flute for me.

    I feel your cosyness in front of the fire 🔥and like your references to Sumo, mmm suss on other one, I love the affection from puddy tats their look and softness

    Hope you're doing well Croixy man and all listening

    Best rest this swine of a head, nigh nite 😊or morning I should say

    Peace wished 🌹

    Dear DB et al.~
    I hope that migraine has departed, they are pretty crippling.

    I’m glad you enjoyed Pelham 123, though I have to say it was Denzil Washington’s character I liked the best, he has a very human flaw which is a nice change in a lead character. It had a happy ending so all was well. I’d guess that movie you were talking about must have been Phenonemon, though in it Travolta’s character dies if I remember right:(

    I’ve never taken him too seriously since I saw him as the dumb punk Vinnie Barbarino in Welcome Back Kotter.

    Star Trek is pretty good, though just the one series, Deep Space Nine never really appealed. Too close to Babylon 5 I thought. My favorite character would be "Emergency Medical Hologram Mark I" played by Robert Picardo in Voyager.

    Do you like comedy martial arts movies like Shanghai Knights with Jackie Chan, or do you prefer more serious like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon with Michelle Yeoh?

    I find the fight scenes in all of them improbable. They remind me of the terrible special effects in the 60’s TV series Shintaro The Samurai, where the film was run backwards to make ninja seem to jump into tall buildings. Still it was an interesting sight into medieval Japan.

    Sumo Cat and fire are present again, a cold still night outside.

    Dear Croix et al

    DB hope the head is better. Can't recall if I saw Pelham123.John Travolta's generally not on my list of too watch, however, I did like him in Pulp Fiction.

    Croix, that fire is sounding good as does Sumo Cat's purring. It's such a shame it doesn't really get cold enough here for a fire. They are rather nice. Also Jackie Chan is a favourite of mine. Especially like the marital art comedies. Recently saw him in a movie where he's getting really old.... Obviously it's not up there like his older ones because I can't even remember what it's about, let alone it's name.

    I avoided going to see the Snowman, the trailers put me off.

    Going camping next week dahhh, it is going to be cold. How stupid is that. Paid for already unfortunately otherwise I'd cancel. Might see if I can upgrade our accommodation.

    Snowflake is sitting on hubby's knee and Peggy is warming the bed up.

    Kind regards

    Dear PamelaR et al.~

    Going camping in the winter was always one of my favorites. We'd settle by the sea and have lovely camp-fires at night. Being on the beach it was much warmer than inland and best of all there was never anyone there. I once made the mistake of going back to the same place in the summer, it was horrible. People, radios and kids on mini-trail bikes everywhere.

    We often got fish without fishing. The beach was very long and flat, and the tide went out for an awful long way. Amateur fishermen with beach nets used to come, drive way out on the sand and start netting. Quite often before they knew it the incoming water was softening the sand under their wheels and we'd pull them out with a (very) long rope. While we refused money fish were welcome (and eaten).

    So good luck with the accommodation upgrade - a caravan perhaps?

    No if I'd known what Snowman was like I would not have gone. One scene set me right back. I did like Pulp Fiction, I thought the best line was the reforming hit man Jules saying he was going though a "transitional period"

    Another of my Muppet Pictures is of a black wigged cigarette smoking Ms Piggy in the movie poster Uma Thurman pose entitled Plump Fiction.

    Dear Croix et al

    Yes, just one scene is enough to set you back. I watched the final of Harrow last Friday and one scene in that set me off for the whole weekend. It takes so long to wind down.

    So comedies are good, Ms Piggy in Plump Fiction sounds awesome! A must see.

    Will let you know what happens with the camping. I feel like a wimp. We're going inland though near a dam. There's an airshow hubby is wanting to go to for photography. I didn't want him driving all that way on his own, so I compromised and said I'd go. I'll amuse myself around the dam.

    Yes, that line in Pulp Fiction was the best!

    Well, think it's time to turn off. Don't answer all the posts :) (Leave some for me)

    Kind regards

    I hope this not uncool to ask, but if you had the chance /time, could you give me a helping hand with The Hulk? I really feel a wise word from the walrus might help ... of course, no pressure, and please ignore this if I'm way too uncool for skool.

    Heyaz Croixems (? Pushing my luck 😂, I figure having been a cop you'd pretty much be immune to most stuff. Respect 👍

    Just a quicky I'm reading but not much reply during this BP (bipolar)

    Going to reply though bbl (be back later)

    Saw Avengers 👍Cant wait to see soon Breath with Simon Baker looks like a powerful drama. Pulp fiction rings a bell but not sure if I've seen it.

    Pammy enjoy camping lovely rest up chooks.

    Birdy you're just straight up cool full stop. Dig ya tweety

    🤗🤗🤗 if you're a hugger Croixy if not I'll sell it

    Dear Moon~

    Delighted for you, I always thought there would be continuing opportunities.

    It was only on the bowling green that I lived

    Croix, can I ask you a favour?

    if/when you have a minute can you take a look at my thread"I don't know where to post" etc....and give your valuable opinion of my situation with my long time male companion ..this is something I can't discuss with just anyone but at least on Forum, most of us are familiar with the condition I imagine........thanks...xx

    Hey Croixy 😊 like your response to Croixems ummm 😅

    I've been thinking quite a lot about you lately so finally getting back ☺

    Thanks and Pammy hey sweets 🤗 re migraine it gave me 1 day break ended up 3 outta 4 days but ok since phew.

    No Deep space 9 didnt grab me either, I haven't seen many lately in martial arts but record Walker texas ranger. Good action in that.

    Saw Breath recently was very good with Simon Baker from the mentalist not that I watched that often. He's good.

    Hope you're well Croixy ☺ and everyone here.

    Got a touch of Archilles tendon in foot, so haven't done much walking lately and yet again can't get back to table tennis but one day

    Rainy day the land needs it.

    I imagine you've got your lovely warm fire going and puddy tats loving it no doubt

    Good days I hope for all

    🕊🌹
