1960 Magazine Ad - Song Without End

This movie came out in 1960, and was heralded for its fantastic musical score. It follows the life of Franz Liszt, renowned 18th century musician/pianist/composer. The movie won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award.

This ad was amongst the clippings I found at my storage unit on top of the recycle bin.

More to come!

This Find is For JANN

I found a stack of old movie magazine clippings sitting on the recycle bin at my storage unit.

Most were dated from the '50's and '60's. Naturally, I snagged them and brought them home!!!

There are thousands here - I have only begun to glance through them! This stack is over 6" high!!!

I found myself thinking of a good friend as I leafed through these clippings - someone who would appreciate them as much as I do. Jann, this find is for you!!!

I may blog some of the more fun pages (okay, I like the old advertisements best) in the future, and every time I do, I will think of you. Thank you for the friendship and inspiration you give. I treasure you and your blog.

In The Sky

So ... what are the odds of this?

Mom reading "Pie in the Sky" (Patricia Condon Johnston).

Dad reading "Farmer in the Sky" (Robert A. Heinlein).

At the same time?

I finally tracked down the elusive "boobus-toobus", long known to frequent these woods; hiding behind the sword ferns near the creek.

It must be a young one -- its umbilical cord is still attached!

Quite a "moving picture", isn't it?

I will leave it alone. And I will tell no one.

I will name it "Ann Alog".

Something is hidden in this picture.
Do you see it?
Enjoying the rare fall flowers
That survived the slight frost.

Hint ... look for the goldfinch!

That New Tree Smell

This one really doesn't need words.
Which smells better, do you think?
