Walter won this handsome Santa Claus hat from Nip and Bones, a very cute store for dogs and cats. He was more content wearing the had when he still was eating his sweet potato treat (photo here)!

"Unnecessary" Quotation Marks

The Book of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks: A Celebration of Creative PunctuationMy aunt got me The Book of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks: A Celebration of Creative Punctuation. It has kept me laughing all night! If you are a grammar fanatic, you will love this book.

It includes photos of "signs" with unnecessary "quotation marks" along with humorous comments. I believe the book is an offshoot of the blog of "unnecessary" quotation marks. If you like this humor, you'll also enjoy the Red Pen blog!

The Tivoli

TivoliThe Tivoli was the first movie theater I ever went to. I have vague recollections of Star Wars, but certainly remember my mother taking me and Johnna Cook to The Empire Strikes Back. Unfortunately, the movie was interrupted by frequent trips to the bathroom because I lost a baby tooth during the showing. When The Fox and the Hound was released, Ryan, Jeffrey, and I were taken to the Tivoli to see it; I spent the entire movie sobbing, leading to my renunciation of movies with animal characters.

Once the big Carmike Five by the interstate opened in the early 1980s, the Tivoli struggled to find its place. Discount movies played there for a time, then it was unused for many years. In the early 2000s, the last time I was in the building, Laura and I went there for a Jack Ingram concert.

The Ardmore Main Street authority owns the building, and a 2009 article in the local paper reported that it's renovating the building.
