I always spend Saturday mornings with my two aunts. Of eight children, they are the only two of my mother's siblings living. We go to one aunt's house around 9:00 and visit, then at 11:00 go to Fire Mountain for lunch. Today I decided to zip down to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things. I hate WM on Saturdays to begin with.
I zip out, put my groceries, including ice cream, in the car and go to leave. Nada! Not one little peep from the engine. David arrives and the hood doesn't want to open. Finally, get it open. 30-45 minutes later, it's cranked with his van and battery cables. Drenched in sweat, a pulsing headache, and melting ice cream, I drive home. So, you can see why I'm not feeling very writerly.
I think I'll go watch the DVD I received from Netflix. I've seen SUMMER MAGIC before. It's a nice little Walt Disney film from 1963 with Hayley Mills. It's enjoyable and doesn't require a lot of thought. HM and her mother and brothers experience financial hardship and move to Maine from Boston. The friendly postmaster lets them move into a rundown house whose owners are in Europe. Of course, he doesn't tell that he doesn't have their permission. HM's snooty cousin arrives and then the owner, who just happens to be a handsome young man.
