The Great Gatsby

by Zona

The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books..I liked the movie from the 70's as well. I think this re-make looks pretty interesting. I'm not sure about Leonardo DiCaprio as Gatsby..but that's just because I think Robert Redford was so perfect in the original. I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie..and not just because there are no super heroes in it.... ;D

That looks interesting Zona! I think I would watch that. I can't remember if I read the book or not. I know my sister had it memory isn't what it use to be!

Waving at everyone!

Good Morning Shirley and Lynn-
Zona relayed a message for me a couple of nights ago. Since it was the last comment of the night it might have been missed by some of our owls. I have decided to take a summer hiatus from the blog. I love you all but I just wasn't getting any of my projects done. I have a DVD that is one third finished of Tango. I am working on that right now. I hope to get to my albums as well. Wishing you all a wonderful summer. See you in the Fall. Stay safe. Love, Tinka

Zona - That movie looks great. I will buy it when it comes to DVD.

Shirley Well, that was by far the messiest and noisiest arrival in the nest yet! Good thing you are so pretty.

Funny that you have a swamp to sell. I have a bridge I can sell you. It's really pretty. I'd call it golden, actually. ;)

Just_Lin said...

Zona I will probably see this movie. I don't remember if I saw the entire one with Redford. I don't think I would be too influenced by that one not to enjoy this one.

Just_Lin said...

LynnD Good morning! I made it up before noon but not by much. I really need to try to go to bed earlier.

Just_Lin said...

Tinka I miss you already. I hope you have a great summer and make good progress on your projects.

Good Afternoon---going to my granddaughters singing concert tonight. Louis isn't able to go but I have his dinner all ready on a plate ready to zap.

Shirley--you r so loverly in first today. I think youbr beautiful. How much r u charging for your land?

Zona---I probably won't see this movie. I didn't see the last one either I don't really like these kind of shows.

Jl--we both need to go to bed earlier at night. I get up earlier than you as I usually plan a lunch. I had a really nice one today----my son met me for lunch. Just the two of us for my Mothers Day present. He was working but it was a great hour.

Tink---have a good summer but I think that is a little long to not be contact. We will get worried about you and miss your stories.

Tina-- hi ms moaner. What movies did you rent?

Lynn--how is your painting coming along?

Louis is a smidge better yesterday and today. Yippee!!!

Hi Guys!

Merci beaucoup for the comments today! I decided to use a little French because F. Scott Fitzgerald..who wrote The Great Gatsby..loved visiting there.

SHIRLEY: You are a vision today! The Great Gatsby was required reading in a lot of high chances are you probably read it..remembering it is another story..I understand the 'forgetting' all too well! ;D

LYNN: Redford always has my full attention no matter what role he plays..but he was perfect for Gatsby..imho..

TINKA: Love you too..I will miss your comments and wonderful wit here on the blog..but I know you'll have a great summer..and I'll look forward to you coming back in the Fall. :)

J/LIN: Get to bed earlier?'re a Night Owl!! ;D

TINA: I'm not a big fan of Leo either..but I think the locations, sets and costumes are going to look so cool on the big screen! I don't think we'll go as far as seeing it in 3-D though..I don't see the point of that..

What movies did you rent? Were the two you watched any good?

DI: I heard a faint "Yippee" when I was outside today..was that you perhaps? :D

You don't want to see it? It's a love story..I think you and the girls might like it! :)

I'm getting things ready for a visit from my sisters in law..I think that's all I have to say..

G'night everyone..sweet dreams! :)

sacBarb said...

Zona, I will probably go see this version, but I will also probably be comparing RR to Leo. I hope they stay close to the book and don't try to update it. I loved the costumes and the house they used in the early film. I went to a Gatsby themed wedding once where they asked everyone to wear white or cream clothes. Hubby and I went to a thrift store and got him a cream colored suit which he NEVER wore again. But it was a fun wedding.

Waving a wing to everyone. I am very tired today so I am going to bed early (for me). Sweet dreams and have a good Friday all. ♥
