Besides Vitamin C and lots of water...

A couple of my kiddos have been sick this week.
And in our family, that can =Hayley Mills. : )
I don't know why but when somebody is sick we watch one of her old movies.
This week, we had time for all three!

Pollyanna is still my favorite!
I still get choked up when she leaves on the train for the operation even though I've seen it a gazillion times! You gotta love the 'glad game!'
And we like the loud reverend who says "And you know I can do it too!"


We also love, love the old Parent Trap!Too cute!
That Darn Cat is my least favorite, but its fun. The slang of the 60's is a riot. "She's the head roach at the local birdhouse." (translation: The warden at the county jail) : )I like when her surfer friend picks up her family's mail and says "Bills, bills, nothing but bills!"
I say that when looking through my mail sometimes. ; )
See! -I've seen these way too many times!
I think we bought them way back when our gang was very young and going through the chicken pox and they've been loved and quoted ever since.

I've never seen nor heard of "That Darn Cat."

Ah, sorry you guys are sick! I love Pollyanna! It's one of my favorites. I'll have to see if we can get it from Netflix. We're sick too!
