I've got my my my husband and I are here and we have a our kitty cat and one day goes into the next day and then the next but we're staying somewhat. Shane by Doing Crossword Puzzles and watching good. Old movie excellent. What was the most recent old movie that you watched? Oh my gosh well. We watched In the rain which I know by heart but I love it singing in the rain. The music man. August To Catches Steve Gaslight all about Eve all those good old you know those are great. Santa raise my wife's favorite movie. I rented a theater for a big birthday for her. Oh Gosh every number is a show stopper. It's absolutely. Oh it's just wonderful to watch it. I I love. This show kept stopping a metaphorical showstopper. Paula I the concession stand. Must've been going crazy on when that was in the theater. Did you see it in the theater? Carol yes I'm that old a Debbie Reynolds was at you. Know she was in it and she was. I think nineteen or twenty years old when she made that movie and she was a year older than I am and so I was eighteen and so I saw the movie in the theater. But then we have it here and it's just like a ritual. I watch it every year and it holds up so great. It's it's wonderful. I recommend it to anybody who can get it. You know. And of course it's a wonderful life with charged that was Stewart's favorite movie and it was Katherine Favorite Movie. They yeah wonderful lot and it bombed when it first came out really. Yep Yep and then what happened was it became a cult classic every Christmas. And so then it just you know and it caught on but when it first came out. It didn't do well at all that I'm on moving giving me. Why have a fantastic piece of singing in the rain Trivia that my wife tells me almost on an annual basis when we watched the movie with their kids which wild filming the iconic singing in the rain number out in the rain gene? Kelly had one hundred and three fever. Yes yes oh you knew that you did. I've met him years ago and we talked about that I was at some function. Then he where he was and I said that was just the greatest number and he said that he was so sick when they were doing it but he had to do it because it was all set up with the the you know the rain and this and that and uh yeah and so maybe that's why his eyes are shining and then of course Donald O'connor doing make them laugh. I mean he knocked himself out for that one and then when it was finished she had to take two weeks off to rest why because he had one hundred and four degree temperature and he was very this is this is little known. Trivia. Carol that they might not have told you what. Donald O'Connor was very jealous of a gene Kelly and so he purposely got himself a higher fever. We're so good together though. Oh my God. He was so jealous of Gene Kelly. That like after they finished shooting the singing in the rain number. Donald O'Connor went out there to the street set an licked every lamppost at Gene Kelly. That that's that's that's a rumor that might be true. And then of course the wonderful Jean Hagen. Who was the billinness in? The movie was so fun. She's my favorite in the whole thing. The unsung hero of the film. Or out funny. She was doing. I remember when Robert Mueller wouldn't testify and wouldn't testify wouldn't testify yes. I was almost certain that when he finally to testify he was going to say. I can't stand it. I thought for sure he was just ashamed. His voice yes exactly. Yeah like he was gonNA assist. He was GONNA sit down and go yeah go. He boarded informally honestly. Yeah Yeah it now Mickey Mouse yes. You drifted Carol. I gotta say with all due respect to Tom. Hanks I have to say Carol.
