Frozen in Time

This little Dude doesn't really look that cold and frozen, it's just the photo. He's a work in progress but he told me he wanted to hold one of my snail shells.

Speaking of cold, which is a nice thing to do as we heat up to over 100 degrees in the afternoons, right now I'm reading the book Frozen in Time. It's about a cargo plane that crash-landed in Greenland in 1942 and the subsequent search-and-rescue mission.  When I was in Vietnam I was with the 37th AARS.  AARS stands for Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadron and our helicopters were referred to as "Jolly Green Giants"  because they had a large dark green frame.

Here's your latest Netflix recommendation: Silver Linings Playbook, a 5-star movie.  Jennifer Lawrence is a powerful actress, pretty good in The Hunger Games, incredible in Winter's Bone and totally awesome in this one. (Did I really just use the word "awesome"?!!!)

Susan is a big fan of the AMC-TV show The Killing and thinks Joel Kinnaman is a great actor who is being ignored.  He hasn't done many movies but one available on Netflix was Easy Money so we watched it. He is great.

The latest Sweater Child give-away was at the Turtle Pond at the University of Texas here in Austin. It disappeared within a week.

I've just watched the first 2 seasons of The Killing on Netflix. It was fabulous. I didn't know that Silver Linings... Was on it yet! Maybe not in Canada yet. I havent seen it. The hunger Games book was so much better than the movie. I'm not sure that the movie worked as a stand alone.
