30 Day Film Challenge/Day 18

Today the challenge is a film you couldn’t stop thinking about.

“Somewhere in Time” stayed with me for a very long time. It’s late and I’m tired so I will just say I loved the movie, I loved the music, and it made me want to spend a week at The Grand Hotel (which is still a dream of mine.) I even read the book the movie was based on “Bid Time Return” (which I did not like at all).


I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the eighteenth day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!


SoCS – A Link to my Past

Linda has given us an interesting word to consider for  Stream of Consciousness Saturday:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “link.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Right away I might be breaking the rules because I am not using a noun or a verb, or am I? I suppose a name is a noun, but I digress (which I have been doing a lot lately.)

Link, link, link. I write a lot of nostalgic posts — all link me to my past. This post is no different. The first think that came up for me was ‘Kommondant Klink’ from the television show “Hogan’s Heroes”. This was a comedy television series about a German prion of war camp. Kommandant  Klink was a bit of a bumbler trying unsuccessfully to move up in the ranks.

Then my mind went to Art Linkletter and his shows “Kids Say the Darndest Things” and “House Party”. I am not sure how to classify the genre of this show, but we watched it faithfully when it was on. Here is a little lesson on the story of creation.
