Sunny Day In September

Began the day at work. Made it right on time...which may have been a moot point. We were dead almost the entire day. I spent most of the morning shelving the few unwanted items left in carts and the last hour pushing carts. I did have to go in for the cashiers' lunches, but that only went for a half-hour each. 

No wonder it wasn't busy. We had amazing weather today. Sunshine, clear blue skies, cool breezes. Couldn't have been more than the upper 70's. It's too nice for shopping! It was so nice, I took the long way home down Nicholson Road. With the road repairs ended, they were only busy around the entrance to the mall. The White Horse Pike was busier, but I got out at the same time as the kids from the Oaklyn School, so there were crossing guards out.

When I got home, I went straight upstairs, changed, and rested while watching Smilin' Through. I go further into this 1941 remake of the classic tearjerker with Jeanette MacDonald at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog. 

Worked on writing after the movie ended. Brett joins everyone in Wonderland and Looking Glass Land for a massive tea party. Red Queen Fannie and White Queen Helen bring them in and insist that Brett carves the roast. Brett has no idea how to do that. She's more interested in trying to figure out how to get the scepter from a highly perturbed Red King Goodson...

Broke for dinner at quarter of 7. Got to see a baseball player and a medieval maiden go for the Big Deal of the Day on Let's Make a Deal. The baseball player didn't seem too upset about ending up with sports clothes and luggage. The lady couldn't have been more thrilled with the Big Deal - a new car.

Had dessert and finished the night while watching Match Game '75. The first episode featured Charles' hilarious answer to what the football teamed passed around in their huddle that wasn't the ball. The second had Richard receive a stuffed doll version of him from an audience member he treated as well as his own sons. 

(Oh, and I'll be going on vacation a week from today. I can't wait!)
