Recently it became apparent that, with the current practice of downloading a movie each Saturday night for the less social of the Homesteaders, it would make better economic sense to change our Sky package to one that included movies. This has opened a whole new world to us all, and in particular to Farm Girl who has discovered the weekly classic movie slot on Disney. Some discoveries made via this medium have not warranted a second view in her opinion (Peter Pan, for example, in which Tinkerbell was a sulky, jealous upstart and just plain obnoxious) but from the opening scene of bare-bottomed orphans swimming in the river while a steam train thundered over a nearby bridge, Pollyanna was a winner.
Farm Girl has had her share of demons to face recently and, from the very accurate Hayley Mills’ accent she regularly affects and the Sage Words she chose to share with us (alongside banana cake with chocolate icing and an appropriate soundtrack), we’ve got a feeling Pollyanna and her Glad Game may be helping her out.
And we’re not complaining about that.
