“As an earring of gold,
and an ornament of fine gold,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This song is the same age as I am. Golden Earrings is one of my all-time favorite films - and why not? It has everything - spies, intrigue, romance, costumes, jewelry, singing, dancing - and gypsies! What's not to love?
BONUS - Golden Earrings - Peggy Lee, 1947

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 09/30/15:
|“The best antidote I
know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of
helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life
is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she
who is served.”
Gordon B. Hinckley
Thanks so much, Susan!

“I was having a bad day, and my friend said, 'Go wash your hair.' I
thought it was really silly - but it made me feel so much better. It
might be a small thing, but it works. Washing it off and starting over.”

|BONUS RECIPES (Sorry, not theme-related):|
Soft Peanut Butter Cookies - "Our
melt-in-your-mouth recipe for Soft Peanut Butter Cookies will satisfy
all your peanut butter lovers, for sure. Serve these homemade peanutty
tasting cookies with a cold glass of milk and watch them disappear from
your cookie jar."
Mr. Food's Easy Egg Rolls - "Can't believe we can make our own egg rolls at home? It's a cinch - without a deep-fryer! And for seafood lovers, these are filled with mini shrimp! But cooked shredded chicken or beef works great, too."
Mr. Food's Amish Bakery Custard Pie - "This Amish bakery classic has all the hallmarks of homemade goodness, but our Amish Bakery Custard Pie can be made with a flaky-as-can-be store-bought crust, if we're looking for an easy shortcut."
From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/01/18:
|Our favorite restaurant has a waitress whose
name-tag reads "Beautiful".
"Is that really your name?" I asked her.
"No," she admitted. "But if people are going to holler at me all day, I can at least be called something I like."
