Vivien Becomes Scarlett



I am a happy girl today, my friends. Good ol' Snow Bird came through. Of course, I would be even happier if bunches of actual snow blanketed the ground. I won't complain though. When you have several snow days built into the school calendar and a winter that's predicted to be warmer and wetter than usual, I guess you can't be too picky about the type of snow day you get.

Anyhoo, since I have the day off I think I may take advantage of the free time and pull out and watch my Gone With the Wind DVD. We're big GWTW fans around here and today marks the 73rd anniversary of Vivien Leigh being signed to play Scarlett. I ask you, can you imagine any other person in that role? For that matter, can you imagine any other actors in any of the remaining roles? Well, great balls of fire! I most certainly can't.

Enjoy your day and your movie! What a treat. I haven't watched that in years but what a gem! Years ago my Mom gave me the Scarlett ornaments from Hallmark for Christmas. When seeing the green velvet dress on one of the ornaments I had to explain that scene to my youngest daughter. Of course I had to tell the Carol Burnette versions as well! LOL!

I do hope you enjoyed this snow day! I did! A four day weekend is nice.
