Okay, I don’t have television or computer in my home, but I am a huge sports fan! I am a fan of it all, Olympics, NCAA football, basketball, baseball, gymnastics, etc. So, that is what my tv would be set on all day and night.
But, a movie that I just love and watched four times in one day is Carson McCullers’, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. It is a great read and the movie is even better to me. The acting was just amazing. I also love Cecil B. DeMille’s, The Ten Commandments. It was one of my dad’s favorite movie. And, tv show/series would be Hart of Dixie, that show just tickled me and makes me smile. Love that Wade Kinsella! 🤗
And, yes, I am streaming the NCAA tournament on my phone, as I type/post!! 🏀 And my bracket is a bit off kilter with a few upsets earlier today.
I grew up with my mom having old wives’ tales that she would say and as a child, I trusted her wisdom. Some that I remember were: going outside with wet hair you could catch a cold, cracking your knuckles/fingers would give girls fat fingers, and chocolate causes acne. Though, I don’t consider myself superstitious, I don’t crack my fingers, go outside with wet hair and I am not a chocolate lover. ☺️
My mom also lived by rules like, eating black eyed peas and collared greens with New Year’s dinner for good luck, having a man enter the house first on New Year’s Day, thank you to my uncles who obliged my mom on this one. And, she didn’t wear white after Labor Day, though she did relinquish that some for “winter” white.
I loved and adored my mom and would honor her by following the many “superstitions” or wives’ tales she told. It was fun growing up with my siblings and the five of us trying to keep up with them all for my mom.
Since childhood, I have been fascinated with tigers 🐅 or any large cat breed. Panthers, leopards 🐆, jaguars, and the cheetah.
They are sleek, and strong animals with a hint of mystique and prowling beauty. There is an exotic and unique beauty in their skin/coloring. The black panther has an undercoat that is patterned with spots or stripes. And, the look of their cat eyes, is probably my most favorite. They are mystical and alluring.
