Merry Christmas back to you Tia Dalma.

I believe the 'Christmas Carol' story is 165 years old now as of yesterday. One of my favorite movies but I love the older movies. I've watched different versions of this about a dozen times now so far this year.

Wouldn't it be cool if "Capt. Jack Sparrow" played the part of Scrooge?

LOL! Couldn't you just see Capn' Jack Sparrow playin' Scrooge with that sway and swagger LMBO! Hysterical image Song!

Yes the Old 1938 A Christmas Carol with the Lockharts! {just preceded the Scrooge movie I posted about, on Now.} Parents of "little" June Lockhart of "Lost in Space" fame
As matter of fact I think she played one of the children in it too

Oh thanks for the Capn' Jack vision! Tooo funny! Ahahaha

I'm off to watch Scrooge and bake now.....

Thank you All I'm glad you do or will enjoy it! I love the music especially. Even the "I Hate {and eventually becomes- Love} People" LOL

And Drac, for you, no matter your 'persuassion' Mele Kalikimaka! Only some of what I remember from a Christmas trip

The poinsettia's growning and covering the hills in some areas, this time of year. Palm tree trunks wrapped with lights..... very Pretty! {from my many trips there exploring the islands, but Molokai'i is my fav }
"The Molokai'i Express" is also where I learned: how to be SEASICK! LMBO, Ugh- Whoa! I'll Never forget

And Mike That's just Sooooooo Funny! LMBO
