Yesterday we watched the delightful movie Pinocchio !I found my own childrens wooden puppet in the christmas decorations box . . .
The story was a huge success . . . .except when the commercials arrived . . .it was the first time my grandchildren had seen such things and they could not understand why they were interrupting the story all the time!
Fortunately Nana had recorded the movie so we could just fast forward without losing the train of thought regarding this wonderful puppet and his adventures !
I am now back to the kitchen . . . .
Making ICECREAM for dinner tonight with family in town for the holidays from Florida . . . .to go with the
Mincemeat Tartes . .
Geppetto, a poor old wood carver, was making a puppet from a tree branch. "You shall be my little boy," he said to the puppet, "and I shall call you 'Pinocchio'." He worked for hours, carefully carving each detail.
