The Legend of 1900

I had let my ironing pile up for two months and yesterday was sooooooooo hot that I decided to stay inside and iron, so picked a Netflix Movie that I could watch NOW and chose a WINNER!

Raised aboard an ocean liner after being abandoned there as an infant, 1900 (Tim Roth) becomes a virtuoso piano player who learns about the outside world only through interactions with passengers, never setting foot on land, even for the love of his life. Years later, the ship may be destroyed, and a former band member fears that 1900 may still be aboard, willing to go down with the ship in this compelling drama from director Giuseppe Tornatore.

I addition to some of the best piano /trumpet jazz I've heard in a long time the movie was a "can't take your eyes off" from the beginning. It had it all. Wonderful music, a hauntingly good looking man, a baby, and it knew how from "Hello" to tug at a woman's heart strings. I cried at the end, but it doesn't take a lot to make me cry anyway, but though I cried I still somehow could relate to the ending, and while sad on one hand, I understood.

If you want something a little different and thought provoking, take a chance on The Legend of 1900. Besides enjoying a good flick you'll have a closet full of freshly ironed duds.

Hope all of y'all have a wonderful Sunday!

  13. HI SIS MOLLY!!!
    SO sorry for my absence, I was a bit overwhelmed with all the new ness and all the followers at once, that I had to step back and Breathe for a while!!!!I also LOVE to iron and when I do, I get a new movie --rent or buy and or I watch shows I have had saved on my DVR, then it makes the chore so much more tolerable!!I ironed the other day for HOURS!!!I mean like 8 or so!!I thought my right arm was going to fall off!!!ALl my friends think I am crazy for ironing, when in the mood I love it!!!Like a gift of love!!Wrinkle free clothes!!
    I also love to clean, love to dust, mop, vacumn and just make things tidy!!I do hate to COOK though, love to bake good sweet thigns but cooking is not my thing, I am not a very creative cook, so that is why I ahte it, I only know how to cook about 10-15 things and it gets so boring!!!!
    I would love a cook to come by once a week and cook up 4 or 5 meals for me to freeze!!!!
    Oh I need to go, and get some thing s done before bed, HEY, I love my PAJAMA DAYS and I allow myself one at least once per week!!No getting dressed and no make up, it makes me feel new again the next day!!Refreshes ,my soul!!
    I hope you are feeling ok and I know that time will never ever take the memory or YOUR PRECIOUS SON AWAY, nor do you or I or anyone ever ever want you to forget him or stop talking about him, Bless you my friend


Thanks for taking your valuable time to tell me what you are thinking about!
