    Mornin’ All. It was 23* when I got up this morning and now is 30*. I don’t know how that happened. It is very overcast and grey outside which makes it kinda dark inside. I figured out why Loki doesn’t want to eat sometimes. If I put too much water in her food, she doesn’t like it. I have to put some, but I can’t make it sloppy. It is so hard to figure these things out. 🙄

    I have been reading my granddaughter’s Nancy Drew books. Last night I found a movie that was made in the 40’s. In it, instead of a detective, she was supposed to be a reporter. I was so disappointed in it. They added a boyfriend and his sister and brother and the whole thing was totally different from her character in the books.

    Hope everyone is safe and warm today.

      Mornin’ mom. Movies almost always screw up the story.

      Good afternoon, aus! Here’s an interesting article which sorts out who really wrote the Nancy Drew series.

      CAROLYN KEENE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE REAL NANCY DREW AUTHOR
      By ANNIKA BARRANTI KLEIN – Oct 24, 2019

      Who really wrote the Nancy Drew books? A recent article about the CW series referred to Carolyn Keene as the original Nancy Drew author and stated that Harriet Stratemeyer Adams later rewrote some of the novels. This is close to the truth, but not the whole story by a long shot. Let’s talk about the real Nancy Drew author(s).

        Thank you. That is a really interesting article. I will save it for my granddaughter when she gets a little older. She loves these books and the Nancy Drew character. Also, I read this link in the article about updating the Nancy Drew character and I agree with the writer.

          I read all that exist3d before the mid’60’s, then lost interest. You could not have her stories without her coupe, and her cloche hats…

      Also, re the movies…the film you saw likely was the one titled “Nancy Drew, Reporter.” It was made in 1939.

      This is the synopsis: Nancy Drew, competing in the local newspaper’s amateur reporter contest, clears a girl named Eula Denning of murder charges.

        Yes, that was it. I wasn’t too impressed, although, if I hadn’t expected the Nancy character to be more serious and mature, I probably would have enjoyed the movie more.

    A couple of anger-making articles from thegatewaypundit on January 6th revelations. I expected nothing from Nancy. However, if filthy Liz and Adam had bothered to really investigate rather than using the committee as a means to destroy President Trump, they would go down in American history as huge patriots and revered for their courage. But no, they chose to lie and obfuscate and now are pariah among those who love America.

      I already didn’t trust anything the government said. For most of my life. Now I’m getting better than I ever thought I could at researching pretty much everything pertaining to my health. I’ll never completely trust doctors. Okay, I guess it would be more accurate to say I pretty much don’t trust them at all now, maybe with the exception of my orthopedic surgeon.
