Let It Be

We've been a little under the weather here in COS land. I thought
I'd  post this vintage poster I got from One Kings Lane. 
 I got this for Mr. COS as he is a big Beatle fan.
We were sneezing and coughing while watching the Oscars
Sunday night and rooting for Adele's song "Skyfall" from
the Bond movie of the same name. She won. Mr. COS stood
up and walked over to right in front of the TV and watched 
as she performed the song. He is a big fan of the
  Beatles, Bond movies and Adele. In that order. He went
  to the bathroom while Barbra Streisand performed, "The Way We Were".
He watched every other minute of the show this year. Unusual for him.
He is usually asleep by the first break. It helped that we had seen
Skyfall, The Life Of Pi, and Argo. Movies to root for.
Before coming down with a massive sore throat I got a
major change in my hair. After my daughter said my hair
 looked brassy, I mentioned this to my hairdresser and she
went all hip and young on me and if you saw me, now, from a distance
(with my sunglasses on), you would think I was in my (out of shape) twenties.
It's all due to my hairdresser, the products I use and Shaklee Instant Protein.
The products I use are expensive (so is the Shaklee) and are not free. 
Come to mention it, I don't get anything for free. I take that back.
 I saw "Argo" for free because my grandson is a SAG
 (Screen Actor's Guild) member. He is sent movies to vote
  on for 'best movie of the year' and he invited us to watch 
"Argo" with him. I guess I'll have to post a pic of my hair
or you'll think I'm full of myself (I might be that, too.). I'll
have to do it soon before it grows out. Stay tuned.

Argo was amazing, wasn't it?

Good morning Susan!

I missed the OSCARS! And my husband and are are avid movie watchers and love The Life of Pi; I did not see Argo, but there were many movies that were nominated that I just loved. AND that your husband enjoyed himself as well says a lot.

I so hope you both get well soon. Spring is just around the corner,and I wish you health and joy so you can enjoy the outdoors!

Love that chandelier! Anita

Okay. Gotta see the hair. And yes, we loved the Oscars! It was such a vintage show! Loved all the singing and dancing and bad jokes. Loved Adele. Loved Babs. Loved Shirley Bassie. What a kick. We had seen all the shows. Every last one. My fav had been Argo, and the hubs loved Pi. My man is a Beatles fan too. Of course. Get yourself well!!!

Yes! Let us see the new do! I enjoyed this write up about the Oscars. Did you notice they termed it the "Oscars" more this year. They hardly termed it "The Academy Awards". I need to see ARGO! My HM is not a movie person AT ALL. He is too much of a hard worker to pay attention to movies. He barely watches TV and at that I have to have the remote cuz he talks on top of crucial moments, that I have to pause and of course rewind to see what I missed while he is talking. We have seen about 4 movies since we met in 1999. Our first date was to go bowling because he didn't want to see a movie. I should have realize then what I was up against. Hahahahaha.

Thanks for saying my head flipping made me look younger. I will take 'younger' any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
