Short and Scary

Here's a scary thought:  Here in Central New York, we are less than six weeks away from our first frost date!

Oh my stars, people in Manila have something scary coming their way: Paris Hilton is opening a shoe store there. There's a joke here, but I'm at a loss.

Short movie review: We watched "Red Riding Hood" two nights ago. It is supposedly a scary movie based on the old Grimms' fairy tale. Julie Christie and Gary Oldman are in it. Aren't they supposed to be great actors?  At any rate, I found it tedious, ridiculous and, in a word, bad.  I wish the Wolf had eaten the entire cast!

If you have cats, love cats or just enjoy hilarious cat videos, here is one for you involving a tiny kitten, a tennis ball and perfectly orchestrated music. You will love it!  kitten vs scary object

Have a a super Friday, and a lovely weekend! Blessings from Robin.

I'm kind of looking forward to the first frost of the year. I'm tired of this darned heat and humidity. Have a great weekend yourself and take some much needed 'me' time for yourself.

I'm a Red Riding Hood fanatic, for lack of a better word, and am pleased to have skipped that movie, lol!

I'm not-so-secretly wishing our frost date would hurry along down here, as much as I enjoy Summer when it starts in April I get tired of it pretty quickly. ;-)

The video was so funny! The poor Kitten just knew that big scary tennis ball was going to get him. :0)
Thanx for sharing it.
And Thanx for the review (too funny) of Red Riding Hood. I thought about watching it, but am now glad I didn't.
Have a wonderfully peaceful weekend!

Two and a half week till frost here if things works like they use to. Autumn feeling in the air here today so I have a fire burning in my stove.

I´ve heard that it is a bad movie and now I know I won´t see it :-) :-)

Have a great day!

I, for one, am so looking forward to fall and the end of this horrible humidity here in PA, seriously! Besides, my 10th wedding anniversary is in September of this year. ;)

LOVE the cat vid. Excellent orchestra I must agree whole-heartedly. Someone really put some thought into that one! Anyway, Have a great weekend!

We feel as though the autumn is here already in the UK right now! I for one am glad because I'm going up and down with internal tropical heatwaves! It will be a novelty in the winter. There's still chance for more hot sun for us though so I'll have to hold out until then. ;)xx

LOL! I laughed through the entire video while trying not to wake my own cat who is sleeping within a foot of me. That is too cute!

Coming in from working in the garage to cool off, I watched this video and got a very nice chuckle....
Sending it off to brother who has/loves kitties.
