Charlie's Strange and Happy World
...one page at a time
under the weather
We always watch a lot of TV when sick (one or both of us). Today we were watching episodes of the Netflix series "Gypsy." Interesting. Unfortunately, it's already cancelled, so what we're watching is all we'll get...

We watched the movie "Our Souls at Night," with Redford and Fonda. Interesting that these two were in one of our favorite movies as young people, "Barefoot in the Park" (which we own multiple times and both consider a classic). It's a 1967 film which also features Mildred Natwick and Charles Boyer as wonderful seniors who end up in a relationship. Marilyn and I are HUGE Mildred Natwick fans -- and she was WONDERFUL in this movie!

We both really liked the film, which seemed to get some mixed reviews. First off, both actors look great! She's 79 and he's 81, and they are both attractive AND also very SEXY!!!!! I don't want to spoil, but there were some moments we especially enjoyed, with Addie's grandson Jamie (another well-cast role) interacting with both leads. Anyway, I highly recommend this movie. Don't let a negative or lukewarm review keep you from viewing. I think you'll be glad you did.

And OF COURSE I continue to recommend "Barefoot in the Park," and always will.

Exciting moment of the day? Learning something NEW about iPad!!! For days I've been trying to research and reason out how you can tell which 'address' someone is using to contact you from when you get an iMessage/Messages/texts (the Apple version).

If you're an Apple user, then you probably know how hard it is to 'message' from an iPad, rather than your iPhone. Anyway, I really prefer most times to use my iPad over my iPhone. Ideally I'd like my messages to go to BOTH DEVICES at the same time, but that's another story. Anyway, today I was finally going back and forth with my friend Shari from my iPad. Fun!

Tired and not feeling great. And I'm having a damn flare-up in my left knee, I'm afraid. Constant pain all day long. At least I'm still functioning, if suffering. In the padt I had times I used to crawl up the stairs from our family room to the kitchen/upstairs. So it could be much worse.

Sister Sue was excellent on the phone today. Her weight was good, she had used oxygen and dreamed (REM sleep!!!) and was very clear to talk to. I'm worried about her being cold (the furnace isn't working), but our guy will go there tomorrow, thankfully.

Sad news: Sue's longtime friend (also our friend), Bob, passed away. I worked for him on and off for years at one point. He was close to my Dad, and there when he passed...

I feel very sorry for both Sue and her daughter Candy (Bob was like a father to her). And for his wife, Sue, too (of course). Bob was a good guy! Like family...

He's another big loss for Sue, who has had so many losses...

Time for bed (it's actually 3:00 a.m.). Marilyn is sound asleep. She's really miserable.

I hope I can sleep. This knee is giving me fits. I wish I could get a bursal injection there, but Leslie doesn't do knees (I guess they're harder).

Sweet dreams!

Sorry about Sue's friend.

I hope you are feeling better soon. All of you!
