Rainy day in Maryland

School let out early today because of the threat of flooding. It’s been raining since last night and the rest of the East Coast is getting a pounding.

But all was quiet at my house where, aside from a few downed tree limbs along the 1/3 mile driveway, the steady rain continues to pour. (The photo you see here was taken a year ago at this time).

I went on Netflix in my free time, intending to watch a Tony Curtis movie because I was saddened to hear he’d passed away today. I loved him in Some Like it Hot and ended up putting that movie and Spartacus in my Netflix queue. When I couldn’t find any Tony Curtis movies available in the Watch Instantly choices, I began perusing what was available.

I decided upon William Hurt and Marlee Matlin in a movie I cannot believe I’d never seen before. It’s Children of a Lesser God, for which Matlin won both the Oscar and the Golden Globe for Best Actress at the age of 21. To this day, she remains the youngest actress to receive the Oscar for that category. What a beautiful and touching film this was and perfect for a rainy day. Filmed in New Brunswick, Canada during the fall, winter and summer, the scenery alone was a work of art.

Hurt plays James Leeds, an energetic and talented new teacher at a school for the deaf where Matlin is employed as a custodian. Leeds finds out that she was a former graduate of the school and was one of their most gifted students, but she has a troubled past. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it.


And now, because it’s Friday and because inquiring minds want to know, I have some questions for you . . .

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now? The books on the bookshelves.

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree? In 1976 my boyfriend carved our initials into a tree. I ended up marrying him.

3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family? It depends on who they are. I call a couple and e-mail the rest.

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.) Car! I love a good road trip.

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant? In my 20's to early 40's I had a recurring dream where there was a war going on and I spent most of my time sneaking out small bands of people to safety. I was always the hero in this little scenario, except for when we would get caught and I'd always wake up, then try to get back to sleep to finish the dream so I could get everyone to safety.

I have no idea what any of it meant.

1. All of the cards I have received from friends and family this year that are on the bulletin board above my computer.

2. No. No initials carved.

3. I just e-mail unless it's an emergency.

4. Favorite mode of travel was the hot air balloon ride we took for our 1st wedding anniversary two years ago.. AWESOME!

5. YES! I had a recurring dream for many years that I was flying/floating over the treetops in the neighborhood where I grew up. The first time I dreamed it was when I realized that I dream in color. Love that dream!

SouthernSass said...

1. My wonderful new 23" LG glossy monitor!

2. Sadly, no. Your answer is so romantic!

3. I email the ones I do not want to speak with and phone the others. For those that do not check or have email - texting works well!

4. Car - so that I can stop and take pictures if the mood or scenery strikes!

5. Yes, about a guy I went to school with and had the biggest crush on. He is still elusive in my dreams and that is too bad for him because I am married to the man of my dreams!

Karen said...

1. The most interesting sight within my current field of vision right now is Ben, my great dane, trying to convince himself that he can fit on his two pillows comfortably. He ate his big one, you see... so right now he has to make due with a rug underneath him and two regular people sized pillows.

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree? a boy carved our initials into the gazebo bench up on the hill at 4-H camp when we were 13, does that count? They were still there 15 years later. I have no idea about today...



3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family? Both. And text. Lord, do we text.

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? Horse.

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
My recurring dream is being lost in a projects-like housing unit in a bad neighborhood at night, and I am thinking "how did I get myself here and how do I get out safely" and I have no idea what it means.

alphabet soup said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now?

The computer screen and my USB and the whole black, black story behind these two items and the inability to use them at the public library...

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree?

No - never never!!
3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family?
Both
4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.)
trains first planes for best use of time and cars cause you can carry a lot of personal stuff..

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
Yes I have but now I can't remember what they were. (lol)

Jeanne Walker said...

1. Interestomg sight? Post-it notes with the names of all the people that I'm praying for 'posted' around my monitor framing it in pink, blue, purple...and there are quite a few!
2. Carved initials? Not that I know of!
3. Mostly email (not many of us have the 'time' to talk anymore.
4. I love traveling in a car so that you can 'stop to smell the roses'!
5. I keep dreaming about 'so-called friends' from years past...very disturbing dreams! Don't know what they mean. Some of them have passed away and that's weird because in the dreams they are alive and well! Spooky!

Hope the rain stops before it causes undue harm to anyone and anything! A little is great~too much can be devastating!

Have a great Friday and weekend!
Jeanne

Alisa said...

1. Our dog Chester, he's always so happy to see me and he loves me unconditionally! I love him too!
2.Yes, Steven carved a heart with our initials into a tree when we first moved here, he has since carved 3 hearts around ours with the kids initials in them. One of the kindest things he's ever done for me (it was a birthday gift)
3. I email and call my friends and family.
4.I love to fly and drive country roads.
5.I've learned that I have a purpose in life through my reaccuring dream...

DAnna said...

1. I'm looking at some lovely fluffy clouds outside the window to my "studio" aka my craft room.

2. No initials carved

3. Email mostly, call occasionally - and I try to send actual letters now and again!

4. Car trips are the best! We're getting ready to take one from California to Colorado next week!

5. Recurring dreams - I actually have 2 that seem to occur a lot: First one I'm back in college and can't find my class room; or forget to go to class; or when I'm there I'm not prepared and have no idea what's going on! Have no idea what that one means except maybe I'm clueless?? Second one is I'm moving, and trying to pack up everything and keep discovering hidden rooms, or an attic or a shed where there's even more stuff and the truck is full and I'm in a panic! I think this has to do with moving my mom from Oklahoma to California 5 years ago....she had so-o-o much stuff that it gave me nightmares for weeks!

mrs mediocrity said...

1. my crazy up-side down sleeping kitty

2. not that i know of

3. both, my kids i text and email more than call, my parents i call, friends, both

Jen at Cabin Fever said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now?

The woman I work with... she has a three foot long rat tail.

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree?
Every memorial day when I was a little girl my dad would carve the entire family's initials into a tree and date it. I want to go back and see if they are still there from 20 years ago....

3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family?

Call. Emailing familing is weird. And my friends, I facebook them. Its the new email.

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.)

Car. Hands down. But Ive only traveled on a train once and it was a touristy deal.

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
I vaguely remember having dreams more than once, but don't recall what they were about...

J'Ollie Primitives said...

1. Ollie the cat. Interesting? Meh.

2. Nope, but we have a photo of my grandmother and grandfather's initials carved into a covered bridge. I think the date was 1919? (the pic is much more recent.)

3. Mostly phone.

4. My feet :)

5. I dream that I'm in a huge house with lots of odd rooms and hidden areas. Isn't a house supposed to represent one's self? Any interpreters out there?

Oliag said...

2. No...but I did carve them into a school bus seat and a boy I liked took the blame for it:)

3. phone...occ text...never email

4. plane because I go to nice places on them...

I remember loving Children of a Lesser God when I saw it long ago...now I really don't remember it well...I should watch it again...

Chrissykat said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your field of vision? My two sweet kitties, one of whom was just diagnosed with cancer. I'm devastated.

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree? No, but I tried once when I was a kid and got in trouble.

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? I loved the double decker buses in London and I love to walk.

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant? I have. It involves a car, a hill and accelerated speed while I frantically stomp the break down to the floor and I all I see out the windshield is sky. Very scary. I've read that it means I feel like I have no control in my life.

Kathleen Stoltzfus said...

I cannot even believe you asked "Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree?". It happened for the very first time in my life this week while vacationing in the adirondacks with my sweetie.

JackDaddy said...

I saw COALG at the movies with a lady who taught sign language. I remember it was the first place I had seen curse words signed :)

Dawn said...

Most interesting sight....yellow tree limbs.
Initials....never. I have always wanted them to be carved somewhere...but I guess it's on my list to do yet.
Email-Call....Usually call. Emails make me sad when it's family.
Mode of travel....definitely Walking!:)
Dreams...always seem to be a new one! (Thank goodness for that on some nights:))

Beautiful tree photo!

Kathy said...

Can't believe you had never seen Children of a Lesser God. One great movie. Of course, Matlin's expose (with an accent on the e) about how she was treated by Hurt during their relationship while filming the movie is disheartening.

As far as your questions, I have had a couple of recurring dreams throughout my life (now 65 years). I have no idea what they mean and I have not had them for a number of years now but during my young adulthood they haunted me. They had to do with a house with a long corridor and there were evil things at the end of the hallway but I was never able to make it to the end of the hallway. Another had a three-story warehouse with lots of files on shelves from which I could never escape. They were very dark but yet on the outside I was always an outgoing, gregarious person. Weird, huh? I'm just glad I don't have these nighttime visions anymore! They're gone, hip, hip, hooray! Have a wonderful weekend!

Bonnilynne said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now?
My hubby's antique camera collection.

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree?
Yep! My first boyfriend carved our initials in the tree in front of our house... way back in the 60's. They're still there.

3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family?
Both. My best friend and I email daily and sometimes have three hour phone calls... one wonders what we have to talk about!

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.)
Car - No planes.

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
I have a recurring dream about living in a huge house on a hill... I'm expecting company and I'm pressed for time to get all the rooms ready for them - anxiety! No idea what it means.

deborah said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now?
My three kitties curled up on the bed, snoozing away

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree?
No, but someone once spray painted 'I love you' and my initials on a boulder (I was embarrassed beyond belief)

3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family?
call, e-mail, text and facebook!

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.)
It's been a while, but plane. Whatever gets me there the quickest!

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
I have vivid dreams, but no recurring ones that I can remember

M and M said...

I never do this anywhere else. but you always ask the best questions so I want to play along...

1) A carved wooden humpback whale and calf from when we lived in Hawaii. It hangs above the head of the bed.

2) In a tree no, in a school desk yes.

3) We've started texting...a lot. I love it.

4) My best way to go is a horse, but I also love to drive my husband's pickup.

5) Recurring dream was terrible--a plane crash in our pasture and I was always the only one there to help. Then one night, the plane pulled up at the last minute and didn't crash, and I never had the dream again. No idea what it means, but I'm sure a Freud type would have a field day.

wayne15575 said...

Loving Tony Curtis and Burt Lancaster. The movie I would recommend you check out is "Trapeze". An all time favorite. Wayne

Annie said...

1. Most interesting sight within current vision. A little pile of antique books. They rival the photos of my grandchildren.

2. Initials carved into a tree. Not that I know of, or remember. Maybe I better go do that now! There's planty of trees here.

3. Call or email. Mostly call. (A good friend), Sometimes email, or skype with grandchildren.

4. Fav mode of travel: mostly train. I love the train. But the plane is great if I am wanting to get to visit some of my family. (Even if it does take 24 hours to get to some of them)!!

5. Recurring dreams. Nasty ones, sorry. I keep dreaming I can't wake up, or other horrible things. It actually happens to be a form of epilepsy that happens to me in my dreams/sleep, so that with medication I am mostly free of these awful things now.

A funny dream I just had was that I was looking at an internet order form, and in the place where you put it in the CART...it said BURGLARY instead. Very funny! Very weird cos I don't even use the internet for ordering things!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

1. Foolery's business card. It's on my desk.

2. No.

3. I call my mother and e-mail or text everyone else.

4. Boat.

5. Yes, it involves a bridge which I've read involves friendships or relationships. My bridges are always broken, so I guess that explains why nobody's ever carved my initials into a tree.

Jayne said...

1. A peat Celtic cross and two little sheep I brought back from Ireland.

2. Yes, a huge mimosa.

3. Both for immediate family, email mostly for distant relatives.

4. Car, by far!

5. I wake up a good bit knowing something is in the bed with me. Sometimes, I have a knowing feeling that it's all good, and other times, it's bug like and not good at all. No clue what it means. Bedbugs? Shivers.... (brand new bed, so probably not)

Sarah said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now? A photograph of my husband taken probably 10 years ago in England.

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree? Yes

3. Do you call or email your friends and/or family? Both

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? Train

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant? On yes, I have it quite often - 3 or 4 times a week. It probably means I'm crazy ;-)

Anonymous said...

2) Carved--No.

3) Call or email--Call my mother and stepmother. Email eveyone else.

4) Mode of travel--Car.

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now? the power plant to the university I work at

3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family?email friends and call family.

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.)
Car, although I would love to try a train some time

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
a couple, but the one I like most is the one where I'm flying free outside and I go under wires and in between buildings and over trees. I love the freedom of that dream. I've looked it up before and it says that you have power over something in your life at that time. go figure!

Mary said...

1. A small watercolor painted in 1881 by Henrietta S. Bostwick. I found it in a consignment shop, posted about it on my blog, and heard from one of her ancestors in the comments.

2. No, no initials carved in a tree.

3. Mostly call, sometimes email or text.

4. Car. Used to be horseback when I was little. :)

5. Yes. I'm registered for classes at college, but can't figure out where they are held or what books I'm supposed to have.... I would think that is manifesting feelings of inadequacy... lol

Hope you didn't get too much rain. It really skirted us here in my part of NJ. :)

Daryl said...

Its raining men ... oh wait, those are just raindrip ...

1. Right now the computer screen .. hey its my office ... okay .. there's an original Andy Warhol silkscreen of my boss's grandfather just beyond my computer screen ..

2. NO and I think its wrong to crave into trees .. they are living things ...

3. It depends ... I email when I dont want to have to get into a long conversation .. tho I admit my emails (like my comments) can be lengthy

4. Well it depends on where I am going .. I wouldnt drive to Las Vegas nor would I fly to Connecticut .. and trains .. well only subways to get to work

5. For eons I had this dream where a giraffe with the head of lion was chasing me ... what does it mean? I have no idea and seriously I am not sure I want to ...

I still like the idea of it raining men .. hallelujah

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now? My office is in the basement, and while it's a squalid, messy hole of a place, the window is at ground level so I can see trees and leaves and OUTSIDE.

2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree? No, but I used to ride my bike to a covered bridge and we'd take chalk and write stuff inside on the beams.

3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family? Mostly email, and we don't call each other enough.

4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.) I love to drive, I don't mind the Metro train for my daily commute, but there's something that tickles me about boarding a plane in Maryland and getting off in a whole other time zone within a few hours. That's just so cool to me.

5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant? OH YES, I have a few - one features giant waves along the coast, another used to feature a tornado that I was trying to outrun. I think both happen when I'm feeling overwhelmed.

Rachel Lynn said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now?
Tons of toys all lined up above our cubicles. The Creative Department gets to be a little eccentric, you know.
2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree?
I don't think so.
3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family?
During the day, I email. In the evenings, I call.
4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.)
I love taking road trips in the car, but I enjoyed the train rides very much while in Ireland. I wish we had that option here.
5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
When I was little I had the same dream three times about each member of my family falling, one by one, out of the car, eventually leaving me to drive. Then, I would go to wherever we were heading and turn around and go back to them. I have no idea what it meant.

The Japanese Redneck said...

1. Have to say it's the Hobby Horse Clothing Company new catalog that I've been drooling over since last night.

2. No.

3. depends on the friend or family member. some don't have email and some don't check the mail they get.

4. Horse, but it would not be for a long trip. Long trip, would have to be by car.

5. Yes. A strange one. Where gum is stuck to my teeth. I'm pulling it and it's coming outta my mouth like the scarves from the magicians sleeve. I was told that it meant I was worried or worrying about something that had me stuck in a rut.

Tiggeriffic said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now~ ? The GoldFinch feeder~ hummingbird feeder~ and my perienniel garden. I believe in having a view in my computer room. Overlooks the side yard,, green and beautiful and with a busy-ness at the feeders.
#2 Have you ever had your initails carved into a tree? No, my mother would not be happy.. She always instructed me as a child, the tree will die if you cut into the bark..
#3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family? Sometimes I do both.. But mostly call them because I have so much to say ~ it takes too long to write it out.. easier to call them and blab.
#4 What is your favorite mode of travel? Car ~ and take the blue highways..
5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant?
I can fly ~~~save people.. One time I actually tried flying off the bed and landing ker-plunk onto the floor.. That woke me up~~fast~!

Mental P Mama said...

1. Dora
2. Yes
3. Both
4. Plane
5. Babies

I clearly need all kinds of help....

Anonymous said...

1. Interesting - Your blog

2. Initials - Yes

3. Friends & Family - Daily

4. Travel Mode - hands down, by plane. I'm a private pilot.

5. Recurring dream - Yes. Shall I elaborate? I started having the dream when I was 5 and it continued until well into my 30's. In the dream I'm 5 years old and being chased around the house exterior by a green witch complete with a wart on her green nose and a black pointy hat and broom.

6. I think it meant I was too young to watch the Wizard of Oz and that my 'rents should have been monitoring my TV time a bit more closely.

P.S. You ask the best and most thought provoking questions. Thank you. Keep up the great work.

msdewberry said...

1)The most interesting sight within my current line of vision is my two cats having a kitty bath after a big meal.
2)Never had my initials carved in a tree, but I did paint them onto an old cement military lookout on Vancouver Island. I went back about twenty years later and they were still there!! I should go back again and check it out again.
3)I do both. email, chat on facebook, call on the phone.
4) Favorite mode of travel? Has to be a plane. Just because it is so fast.
5)I have a recurring dream about being locked into a huge house, with moving rooms and shut doors. I think I know what it means, it is a scary dream and never quite the same twice.

Brynwood Needleworks said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now? My upside-down corgi puppy. Yup! Kes has a sidekick now!
2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree? no
3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family? mostly email. I call back and forth regularly with one sister, but I can email at any hour without interrupting everyone else.
4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.) I've loved traveling by train, but my favorite is by car. I can pack whatever I want, travel at my own pace and not be subjected to airline personnel feeling me up because I'm wearing a French underwire bra! lol (There must be something about those French bras...and I'm too scatterbrained to remember NOT to wear one on travel days.)
5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? Yes, my "flying dream" What do you think it meant? I've always felt so glorious after my flying dreams that I think it has to have something to do with a feeling of freedom and wellness. (I really love those dreams!)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Kate!

Fearless Nester said...

1. What is the most interesting sight within your current field of vision right now? A lamp shade I made out of beer bottle sea glass that glows amber with the light on.
2. Have you ever had your initials carved into a tree? I don't think so.
3. Do you call or e-mail your friends and/or family? Depends on the individual I'm trying to reach, but I prefer the phone for close friends, family.
4. What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, plane, train, etc.) A truck if I go out shopping, a car if we bring our parrot Simon with us.
5. Have you ever had a recurring dream? What do you think it meant? Yes, I dream I'm in NYC and I don't like it and I am lost. I don't know what triggers this dream, but it may have something to do with watching reruns of Sex in the City before bedtime. (And I even liked living there back in the 70's, so I don't know why this dream disturbs me so much.)

Hilary said...

1) My cat about to chase his tail. There he goes...

2) I don't think so.

3) Both.

4) Horse... though it's been years.

5) More like recurring themes. From time to time I dream that I'm out walking and exploring a city.. or a large house. When I awaken I'm disappointed that I wasn't really there. This morning I was in a Scandinavian country.. exploring and taking great photos of interesting sights and objects including a Danish or Norwegian Monopoly board. When I woke up, I was disappointed that these images didn't exist on my camera. They were going to be great blog fodder. ;)

Other theme dreams:
I often dream that I'm back in the first home I've ever lived. It means I miss those days.. sometimes. I also occasionally dream that I've started smoking again. I think it means the same as the house dreams.

1. hummmm my hubby and my newly cut front lawn which is beautiful.

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

My lovely, neurotic gray tabby bobtail kitty.

No initials--guess I'm not a romantic!

I do both.

I love traveling by car because I want to see everything! When we traveled by car when I was a kid, my dad paid us a nickel for each white horse we saw to keep us quiet, because if he had to stop the car--well, it was BAD!

Being trapped on an elevator--started when I was 5 yrs. old. I hate enclosed places--claustrophobia I guess.

Gail said...

1.The most interesting site from my computer table are two amazing, matted, framed prints of horses.

2. My initials were carved into a tree along White River by my husband.

3. Both...mostly see them in person.

4. My favorite mode of travel is horse.

5. Yes, I have had a recurring dream for years. I am floating in a stream in the bottom of an old dug out canoe, hiding, as I lay there I see trees over head as the canoe floats quietly down the stream. I notice I am wearing an old dress like early settlers of America. I am afraid of discovery.

Very entertaining questions, thank you for the fun!
