Dear Diary,

Went to school. Made tomato + cheese.  Didn’t make the free throws today made 12 out of 13. Did my social studies. Bud + Marshall came over we tried to play card but Marshall didn’t know how + Elane was down there. 

 

I wasn’t going to respond until I saw the Jane Eyre part – that is my a favorite book of mine (out of classic literature anyway). I read Jane Eyre about once a year and have many of the movies. I didn’t know there was a 1944 version and I LOVE that Grandma loved the story as much as I do. 🙂 The mini-series is my favorite version but I really enjoyed the latest movie of Jane Eyre too. I can’t put in another YouTube clip but if you like the story, I recommend checking it out.

  1. It’s interesting how she mentioned that she heard the old-time actor Alan Ladd. I barely recognize his name, but he apparently was quite popular in the 1940s.

      I agree. Most of the actors and actresses she mentions I’ve heard of, and most likely heard of them through here. But he isn’t familiar to me.

  2. How very cool 🙂
