It looks to be vanilla ice-cream with swirls of chocolate sauce and chocolate-covered peanuts - in other words, we wantsss one too, we does! *gollum, gollum*

Coconut is also a delicious flavor, especially when paired with lime.

Hi everyone!!!!!

Hope all are doing well. Got a new computer! It's a laptop so I can sit better while doing stuff.

My favorite things change almost daily.
Today they are my babyman and my cats and my bff Sable.
They have all been a blessing during my illness.
(getting better, just not able to wrestle ant tigers yet)

Been watching the women's World Cup.
Hope no one is from Brazil, but I was a very happy camper when the Aussies beat their side today. :)

Later.
The RealMcCoy!!!

Is Julie Andrews reading this? My favourite things...

Postby prmiller » Thu Jun 13, 2019 2:59 pm

Yes, I like raindrops, but not just on roses,
and I have great whiskers...so take that! you kittens!
Kettles with water boiled, ready for tea,
Bright winter nights making snowmen with mittens.
Hallowe'en nights making vigils in prayer,
Chocolate treats with my wife, rich donut rings
Musicals where I can sing-along, too,
These are a few of my favourite things.
When the bills bite,
when the tax stings,
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply recall all these favourite things,
and soon I am feeling glad.

Oh, what fun to "parody"...but without
making fun.
Enjoy your favourite things,
Because in Canada, anything with "or" in it,
is not complete without...you.
I love the worldI am in...

Calma .. :hihi: :hihi: :yippie: Good to see you back. Missed you much. And as Thor n said you'll be ready for those tigers real soon !! Just good to have ya back

I love the movies. They have given a soothing balm for me for countless years. Doesn't matter how I view them still love to sit for a few hours and forget for a time.
My favorite silent films are "The Big Parade" and "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalyspe". Favorite actors of the same era are the male leads in both the a fore mentioned films, John Gilbert
and Rudolph Valentino.
<3
My favorite film era is the mid 30's to late 40's. Bogie, Cagney can't beat 'em. Barbara Stanwyck excellent. Favorite cowboy, John Wayne. Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda come close.
:D

Another favorite thing for me.

Sports!

I'm not very good at playing them, but how I love to watch them.
Especially baseball.
Played sandlot ball as a kid, but I am a right handed hitter with a bad left eye. lol
Seattle has a pro Rugby team and I tried to watch it, but it's a strange game.
Don't care at all for golf, though. Borrrrrrring.

Lol, golf is one of the very few sports I can actually somewhat play - though my family was also obsessed (and I mean obsessed) with horse-racing when I was young: the Kentucky Derby was like our Super Bowl.

Definition of Golf----a complicated way to take a walk. :P

Hey Calma and Parm! :hihi: Good to see you both back. :D

That line from the song "Favorite Things" always struck me as odd, somehow. The singer says he/she likes "whiskers on kittens." What, they don't like the rest of the animal? :? Dunno. Just seems weird to me.

You might say that's some of my favorite things. Kittens and cats. Puppies and dogs.

The whole animal, not just bits and pieces of them. :P :D

Hey Thor, I love Rhiannan song to and made a DnD character because of it.
When I was doing hard pastel drawing I actually did a character picture of her.

Baskin Robbins Jamoca Almond Fudge is my fav ice cream.
I can't pick a movie that I love the most. I'm a movie nut. Right now watching Dr Strange and
love most all of the Marvel movies. Love all kinds from drama to comedy to fantasy. NOT horror ones though.

Love doggies and cats. You can have the reptiles...lol.

Love to crochet. Have a multitude of afgans under my belt.

Play alot of computer games. Some individual and also World of Warcraft when I can afford the monthly fee.

Always have some song in my head. A word, a thought or even something I see will start a song in my head. (Just got the song from and old movie
going from that phrase "With a song in my heart" won't be able to get rid of it for hours now...lol)

And last but not least I love my friends both in face to face life (looks towards Calma's house) and those online (looks at ya'll)

oooh all this talk of breakfast makes me want french toast. We have a cafe here that does the best one ever! Brioche french toast with berry compote, mascapone and cruched pistachios. And they give you a syringe of maple syrup to squirt over it. To die for...

And then there are biscuit pizza. With canned biscuit dough as the crust.
Calma turned me on to them. My fav is croissant dough with white sauce, chicken, and other toppings.
Gotta be careful though to get the dough done before the toppings are done.
