Azalea Bedalea

I am really sick of being cooped up in this house. Here is a picture that I took as I came home from work of my azaleas. They look much better in photos taken outside the house rather than from my chair. I am surprised that the one on the right hasn't died. It's my Charlie Brown Azalea.

I just finished watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and I have to admit that I really liked it alot. I remember watching it when I was little with my brother... I think he liked it more than I did for all the crazy inventions in it. Tonight when I was watching it, I thought that toymaker looked alot like Benny Hill! Sure enough, it was. Do you remember the Benny Hill show? I loved the theme song. When I was in middle school, my neighbor dressed as Benny Hill for Halloween. Looking back on it now, it seems really odd that a girl would dress as Benny Hill for Halloween and no one thought twice about it. It seems kinda screwed up to me now.

Hm! I should rent that; haven't seen it since I was a little kid, and don't remember much about it.

I do remember reading the book upon which it was based in middle school or high school: worth a look. :)

I saw one scene last weekend while flipping channels. I wasn't impressed with Dick Van Dyke's dancing.... he's no Gene Kelly. But I was told to give it a try... if you can watch it without making that comparison, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is really great... a couple of the scenes are really surreal. I just ordered the 5000 Fingers of Dr. T which I am excited about seeing, too.

Benny Hill is also in the original "Italian Job". The theme to his TV show is called Yakety Axe - Chet Atkins' recording of it is without equal.
