Photo Bombing Cat, Plus A Sort Of Movie Review

I love how Maurice pretends not to follow me around and then ends up in every picture. Those are the hurricane lilies, about to bloom.

And here she is pretending not to look at the chickens. She's a hoot, that squirrel killer. 

Here's a picture she's not in.

From my walk. It's a better picture of the trees than of the butterfly but what the hell? There are so many butterflies right now. 

So Mr. Moon and I watched Night Of The Iguana last night. Have you ever seen that movie? John Huston directed, stars Richard Burton, Ava Gardener (god, how lush she was!) and Deborah Kerr. 
Anyway, it was fabulous! Black and white, extremely dramatic, based on the play written by Tennessee Williams so it was amazing. There was pot smoking and a defrocked pastor and a young hottie and maraca-playing Mexican dudes and a smokin' threesome scene in the ocean and a bitter Baptist old lesbian and a dying poet and iguanas. Lots of iguanas. 

You can find the trailer on Youtube should you have any desire at all.
And James Earl Jones does the voice-over on that. So, yeah, it's pretty awesome.

That's about it for me this morning. I'm going to town to deliver eggs. My refrigerator runneth over.

What are you doing today?

Happy Friday, y'all.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. I watched Night of the Iguana first time several years ago; I was on an Ava Gardner kick. It went right on my list of can't be watched too often. Like The Lion in Winter.

  2. I worked from home for six hours and at this very moment am logging off to start my weekend. Hoping not to spend the rest of the day dwelling on all of the work I didn't get done at work today. Ahhh!!

  3. Oh yes! I remember that film. I can still see certain scenes in my mind. I will go back and revisit. That T.W., what an eye for character and strange stories. Thanks!

  4. I read the first of your two short stories yesterday and I loved it. The final scene was so beautiful and poignant and it left me breathless. It was sharp and to the point and so very you. And I keep thinking about that gorgeous last moment. Fantastic.

  5. I am working and sleeping. That's it.

  6. Joanne- It was almost Hitchcockian in the filming, I felt. So very black and so very white and so very intense. I loved it!

    Jill- Let it go, sister! Let that work go!

    Andrea- He was something, old Tennessee was.

    Ms. Vesuvius- Oh, gosh. Thank you! I am beginning to wonder if the stories are so awful that no one dares mention them. I am so very glad you liked that one.

    ditchingthedog- That does not sound like fun, my dear. I am so sorry.

  7. I saw that movie when I was a kid. It was erotic, but I had no idea at the time about what the plot was.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
