Tiny Town a funtastic place for UFO group members to live.

Tiny Town  is our safe haven when life gets crazy. We are all healthy and happy here, because we know our neighbours and friends living here are quilters too. To buy a small house in Tiny Town, you must perform one random act of kindness , and to buy a larger home ( 2 chimnies), you'll be performing 2 random acts of kindness. All houses have large sewing rooms, and have been built to last.Large homes have storage for more stash, but smaller homes have bigger yards.  Here you can have housemates from your past, alive or otherwise, your present spouce ( only if you wish,lol) as well as pets from past or present. I know you will be responsible pet owers and thoughtfull neighbours, because this is just that kind of place.  Only houses on the back are for sale.

The vessel with the pestle has the pellet with the poison..

The flagon with the dragon has the brew that is true.

Had my 12 yr old GD watch a Fred and Ginger with me.  She was hooked!  I do have a lot more, but in VHS, and we couldn't get it to work....

George Chakaris was an amazing dancer! I'm a huge fan! I too love musicals....White Christmas one of my favorites. Gene Kelly one of my favorites too....love Singing in the Rain!! Loved Show Boat, 7B7B, Music Man, Oklahoma, Grease, Finnian's Rainbow, and I could go on and on!!!

Excellent memory, Mary!  I think that he was of Greek origin but looked just like a Puerto Rican in "West Side Story".  Too bad he had problems with fame - so many stars do.

Comment by Mary Moore on January 16, 2021 at 11:42am

George Chikares (not spelled right)  He was a chorus dancer in "White Christmas". He disappeared into a bottle after being in "Hawaii."  Wish I could get rid of this trivia memory, and use it for important current stuff.

Mary, you must like 'Musicals" too.  Wasn't Natalie Wood great?  And the male star was "George ----".  Her voice was dubbed though.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 16, 2021 at 10:33am

Ginny, I debated with myself whether it was Jane Powell or June Allyson.  Jane had a really beautiful classically trained soprano voice.  I think that she was in another movie with Howard Keel.  Was it "Show Boat"?  I used to be a movie buff when younger and I read all the movie magazines.  And I loved musicals - still do!

I went to private Catholic schools except for 3 years of High School all of my school years except when I returned to University to finish my degree.  I loved helping with the Catholic charities, like the missionary work in Africa, and the Miraculous Medal Society.  When we travelled extensively, we visited all the Catholic, Buddhist etc. shrines, all the Christian churches we could, and all the other mosques, temples, and churches of all other religions.  I have a deep interest in religious practise also.

Wow, Mary, what an experience ♡!

Comment by Mary Moore on January 15, 2021 at 8:59pm

I got to see the movie, WEST SIDE STORY, when it was still only at Grauman's Chinese, in Hollywood!  For my 16th Birthday!

I loved making the boxes for our Valentines to go into. I remember how hard it was to pick valentines that weren't too mushy for all the boys since we had to give one to everybody. LOL The pagan baby thing is something I never heard of...interesting. Must be a parochial school thing, maybe?

How exciting to have been at the movie premier! 7B7B is one of my all time faves! I have the Anniversary Edition DVD and the making of the movie was an added thing and was so fun to watch. All the "behind the scenes" things. I think you meant Jane Powell instead of June Allyson. Jane played Millie, Adam's wife.

Linda, I remember the decorated boxes for valentines.  The nun who was our teacher told us to send a valentine to everyone.  I debated with myself every year to decide would I send 1 to everyone or just to my friends.  Then, we had a party at which treats our mothers donated were sold back to us for pennies.  The money was used for the Holy Childhood.  It cost $5. to ransom a pagan baby in Africa.  I was so devoted to this cause!

Ginny, I just reread your posting on Jan. 1.  The movie "7 Brides for 7 Brothers" had its Canadian premiere in London Ontario.  My Mom and I went.  I wore a black plaid dress with a velvet bodice with strawberries stitched on it.  An actress from the movie, Ruta Lee, was there in the foyer looking so glamourous.  We talked to her and found out she was Hungarian.  I remember the stars in the movie - Howard Keel, June Alluyson (can't spell her name) and the youngest brother was Russ Tamblyn and could he ever dance!  I was under 10 at the time.  But I remember it like it was last year.

Or making decorated boxes so your fellow classmates to put valentines in?

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 14, 2021 at 9:14pm

Tiny Town is taking down the Christmas lights on Main Street and the park's bandstand. So now we'll wzit for Valentine hearts to appear on the schoolhouse windows :-)) Who doen't remember the pride in grade one, weiding those blunt ended scissors to cut out our lopsided hearts from red construction paper? It was always fun when they went on the glass so that heart shaped shadows moved around the classroom all day long.

Happy New Year to my Tiny Town neighbors!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 2, 2021 at 10:46am

It's another nice, warm, sunny day in Tiny Town.  I'm just stuffed from all the steamed pudding Riana dropped off at the Homestead today.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 2, 2021 at 9:29am

I went straight to bed but woke up to the sound of fire crackers at Midnight. looked out the window and saw all the beautiful designs and colors in the sky. Happy New Year Tiny Town Neighbors.

Here at Stonehenge, today, hubby and l had the traditional English steamed pudding with ( fake) rum sauce for dessert. Love our coldroom downstairs...it's kept our squash l harvested late Sept.in fresh condition ( only a few small acorn squash left now). Photo is of the delicata squash l brought up for with dinner. Small but tasty.

Oh! I missed the stroll and the fireworks, too! I watched "7 Brides for 7 Brothers" with some popcorn and went to bed. I didn't even hear the church bells. Happy 2021, everyone!
