We're enjoying

the last few days before the public schools get out for the summer. That means mid-day movies and afternoons in the parks. Friday we have our first letterboxing of the season planned. But of course it is supposed to be cold and rainy that day.

Tuesday night in real retro style, the kids and I watched the movie Ma Wowo while having a nacho and taco salad dinner. Don't recognize that movie title? It was released on DVD when Shoshie was about 2 1/2 or so, maybe 1994. She loved it and watched it over and over and over and over. It was about a cat, Ma and 2 dogs, Wowos, who try to find their way home over the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is better known by the title Homeward Bound but here it will always be known as Ma Wowo. They were very critical of the movie now, being teenagers, but Shoshie could still recite much of the dialogue from memory. PRM

Ah, "Ma Wowo." Shmuely likes that movie, too. In Shmuely fashion, he quotes the dog whose having porcupine quills removed, "Just let me die!" when subjected to something uncomfortable at the doctor or dentist.

And of course, who could forget your dog (was it Emily or Emmie?) whom Shoshie called Peepee (small) Wowo?

Love to all.

Correction--"whose" should read "who's."


Aunt H, WHO'S obsessive about things like this and is appalled to have made such a mistake.

Ahh, Peepee Wowo. A sweet doggie with a bad habit of chewing up inedible stuff. A life-ending bad habit.

Emmie, I guess, although she was NEVER called that, but we were up to the letter "E"
