Coming Soon: Third Annual Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon and Other Posts

August 12, 2017

I will be taking part in a blogathon found at:  In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood as I review Young at Heart starring the brilliant Ethel Barrymore, a young Doris Day, and Frank Sinatra. Even in movies, I am drawn to the Byronic hero, and love the way the Frank Sinatra character is portrayed. Enough of that, as I will save it for the article.

In the meantime, I have acquired a nice library of old Hollywood biographies. Perhaps I will do a give-a-way soon. Hmmm…

Here is a pile of books I am currently reading. The red book is a very quirky read about traveling in Paris, with odd reviews of hotels, restaurants, and other tourist-y places.


I will also be posting the second part of my article on the draw of the seashore in the 1800’s.

School is starting for my facility this week. Each day will find me teaching and prepping for Language Arts 800, English I, English II, English III, English IV, and some elective courses. Whew! I could use another visit to the seashore myself. I am looking forward to introducing The Shepherd of the Hills to my 8th grade students and will reveal how it is connected to the Ozarks and why boys love this book so much in another article.

In the meantime, I need to sit back and re-watch one of my very favorite old movies: Young at Heart  (also starring Gig Young, who was pretty hot back in the day)!
