Crunch Time

Aloha Everyone,

Now that Honu is checked out and ready to go on the road, J.J. and I are preparing ourselves for winter weather.

Buying thermal underwear in California is not easy. Not too many choices in terms of styles and colors. 

Our plan to wash our clothes prior to leaving didn’t work out. ESA (Extended Stay America) laundry room is closed. Luckily, our alternative plan of taking it to lavandería worked. Our clothes will be washed, folded and ready for packing tomorrow at noon.

Today is the last day of the Godfather Trilogy on TV. Our favorite is part II where Don Vito Corleone traces his roots to Sicily.  Godfather is based on Mario Puzo’s novel. Story of a powerful Italian-American crime family.

Great acting by Al Pacino and Diane Keaton, and Talia Shire who played Connie Corleone.

The movie, like the story, is a family business.Talia Shire, an accomplished actress, is the sister of the director Francis Ford Coppola and Sofia Coppola, daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, played the daughter of Michael (Al Pacino) and Kay (Diane Keaton). Without looking at the tv screen, soaring music helps visualize scenes.

Aloha -- Cathi
