Springtime Angels

Couldn't believe how gorgeous it was when I got up this morning. The heat and clouds from yesterday were replaced with soft breezes, blue skies, and a warm but not overly hot sun. It made for an extremely pleasant ride to work. I wasn't the only one who thought so. I had to dodge a lot of people walking their dogs or going for strolls coming and going.

The beautiful day was also reflected in the Acme. While we weren't as dead as yesterday, it never got overwhelming or too crazy, either. It's too beautiful to be busy! Not to mention, we're at the end of the month and right before a major holiday. If people aren't waiting for Memorial Day Weekend to do their shopping, they're waiting to get their beginning of the month money next week. Plenty of help for once, too. I even got to shelve loose items for an hour or so again. Was in and out with no trouble whatsoever besides a few annoying customers.

Went into writing after I got home and changed. Charles and Brett follow the Jabberwock's smoke trail to a cave a few miles from the jub-jub bird's nest. Brett's not happy about hauling her rear two miles to the creature's cave, stumbling over roots and rocks. Charles insists it's the only way they'll get out - by rescuing the Vorpal Sword.

Broke for dinner at 7 PM. Watched Match Game PM while I ate. Mary Wickes, Gary Crosby, and Fannie Flagg witness Charles waiting (and waiting) for Brett to stop talking and let him give his answer about what a cowboy kissed that hurt his lip. Richard has less luck with "Lewis __" in the Head to Head.

Finished the night watching shows on the Roku Channel after a shower. Charlie's Angels are reluctant "Stuntwoman Angels" in Season 5 when a masked man in a Robin Hood costume keeps causing on-the-set accidents. The girls learn that they all revolve around the stunt coordinator for two female-oriented action movies. Someone doesn't want the show to go on, particularly the cheapened remake of an Errol Flynn movie, Marian and Her Merry Maidens...or two someones...

Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie also has fun with show business in the 5th season opener "Jeannie at the Piano." She enchants a red piano so Tony looks like a virtuoso whenever he plays it. General Schaffer is so impressed with Tony's playing, he sends him on tour. Roger joins in as his agent and manager. They have to make sure the red piano is at every location...and that Jeannie is there to keep the magic going.
