The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions--the little, soon-forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment. -Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Well, well, well, look who I got to visit with last week...Is Goat-Goat not the sweetest ever?
My sweet friends, Goat-Goat and Clifford.
Please pet me won't you? I really like you a lot Mrs. Amelia.
(Look at little Goat-Goat's hooves...So cute I think...)
I like you too Mrs. Amelia.
I had a good little visit with my buddies! They are fenced but have plenty of acreage and a neat barn on the other side. Where else can I go and have a drive-thru experience like this but in Smalltown?
Please enjoy! Don't Fence Me In from the movie: Hollywood Canteen (1944)
I've always loved this act at the Hollywood Canteen by precious Roy Rogers and Trigger! I believe the old movie is entitled simply, Hollywood Canteen (1944) and is very entertaining! Wow, has Hollywood changed. Back in the 40s there was much patriotism in our Hollywood stars. It was such a different time in our country when there was a healthy fear of God. Many of our stars served in WWII. A much better time morally. Many will say those days are gone... Not here at the Cathedral. : ) I pray people will wake up. I don't understand the worship of this present culture at all. Let's be strong.
You have probably heard me talk of USOtown? The town actually still has a USO center there from WWII for the soldiers. On the front glass door, a sign says... "Please remove your chewing gum before entering." More then several times Jem and I have stopped and peered through the front door. There is a large room with the original clock on the wall, a counter and kitchen where the refreshments would be served. Locker room, old gymnasium and auditorium attached. It's an amazing place among the beautiful trees and street lights. You expect Joan Leslie and Jimmy Stewart's fill-in during the war, Robert Hutton, to come out arm-in-arm at anytime. Flags are still flown there. Greatness.
I hope you all are having a nice day! Signing off from the Forest Cathedral...Amelia
