I've Got Plenty To Be Thankful For

I've been enjoying the new colorized version of Holiday Inn this evening. Boy is it beautiful in color! No matter how bright it is though, there's still something softer and quainter about the old black and white version that I just can't get over, and it's still my favorite. I've been enjoying the soundtrack too, especially driving around in my car. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only girl in Ohio driving around with a 1942 movie soundtrack playing on my speakers, and then I sort of feel like an oddball. I get over it quickly though, I wouldn't want to be missing out on this. :) Here is one of my favorite scenes from the movie, and how fitting for Thanksgiving. It's a song sung by Bing called "I've Got Plenty To Be Thankful For." And do I ever!

Here's to all of you and all that you're thankful for this season - and best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. My family had an early Thanksgiving dinner tonight. The name of our holiday turkeys are always Jonesy. : )

  2. Nice post, AIA! I REALLY need to get H.I.... My mom bought 'Miracle on 34th Street' (original version, natch) for my little girl to watch, and it was quite good...LOVE Maureen O'Hara...
    I also have NEVER seen 'It's a Wonderful Life'...really! so I need some catching up on the Classic Christmas Movies...

  3. Aww, poor Jonesy. Still, I did enjoy that turkey yesterday, haha. :)

    Yes, JWalker, DO see It's a Wonderful Life! Any classic movie lover should have that in their repertoire. :)

  4. Ooo- you are making me want to bust out some classics! And hey- a little "oldies" soundtrack is never weird! You are retro-chic!

  5. I'm new to your blog but have been reading some back posts...and wanted to let you know that you have an award waiting for you at my blog. :)
