Yeah, Cujo was a hard read for dog lovers.  I also didn't like Pet Semetary because of the cat.

I had reread them so often, I think I gave them all away.

Oh, Pet Semetary!  Forgot about that one, I read it.  And saw the movie.  It was an ingenious premise, though...

This got a chuckle out of me.

I think a lot of the athletes were expecting it to be postponed.  So many other sporting events were cancelled, if the Olympics went on, and put all those people in such close quarters, that would be pretty irresponsible.

Oh, sure.  The Olympics were just one topic.  It was also about people not being able to see baseball games, or work out with others....not to say that any of those things should continue to be going on, but just how people can cope with the emotional fallout of not having those things to brighten up their lives.

But it wasn't depressing; it was positive.  Finding good solutions for spending our time now.

There's a Christmas movie on Hallmark tonight.  I wish they'd put up a schedule...I thought it was Fridays, then there was one last night, now one tonight...

I did read Pet Semetary, but couldn't really deal with it.

I read The Mist, after you recommended it, Chuck, and rather liked it.

And he did a book, 11/22/1963, based the day JFK died, which I thought was pretty good.  It wasn't an actual history; it was one of his fanciful books, but not "ghostly" or gory.

See you tomorrow.

I liked Stephen King, I had almost all of his stuff in paperback.

I read most of his early stuff as well, not so much his later stuff. I think I quit after "Cujo".

Now I want pizza  :)

Sorry! :(

It was good though. It was just what I wanted to eat! We had some salad as well. Lilia ate a piece of cheese pizza that was as big as she is!!

This was posted on January 10, 2020'
They are airing a Christmas movie every Thursday night on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and every Friday night on Hallmark Movies.

Since Christmas they always showed one Christmas movie on Thursday and one on Friday. It looks like they have increased to include Wednesday night as well.

Nancy and Chuck, just saw the ad that Hallmark is having another Christmas Movie Marathon again this weekend. It isn't on the channel guide again, but last weekend the movies didn't change until a couple of hours before they showed. I'll check tomorrow as they are supposed to start at noon.

How could I miss the Stephen King conversation!?!

I love him, read everything I got by him in my teen years, later not so much, but I still read him from time to time. I remember having to sleep with the lights on while I was reading It  :laugh:

Hi dear friends! This week has been like a rollercoaster, great day, nah, nightmare day, great day. Let's see what today brings. But the most important thing is that we stay all healthy.

Ingy, how's your dad? Are you going to visit?
