Good morning, Vagabonds.
Mark, M & I were just talking the other day about how various states abbreviate their department of transportation. You mentioned VTrans, California is CalTrans, Texas is TxDot and Nevada is N-Dot. I wonder how other states have gotten creative with this.
We went to see the new “Murder on the Orient Express” yesterday. It is a really good movie. So many details are the same as the book, and so many are enough different so that there are still some surprises, even though we practically know the original by heart. It was a lot of fun. I think this is perhaps the 4th “Murder” movie we have seen, Peter Ustinov, Albert Finney, David Suchet and Kenneth Branaugh (the new one) all play Poirot very well. There may be another one in there, I’m not quite sure. My favorite is the Albert Finney version with almost all of the roles played by big stars like Ingrid Bergman, Lauren Bacall and Sean Connery.
I’m with Mark about the holiday. Being retired takes the “special” out of the Monday holidays. Now they are just inconvenient days when the banks are closed and no mail delivery. One compensation is that most stores have a “holiday sale” during every one of them. Saving money is always good.
Everyone have a blessed day.
