Hallmark Moment

* I just found out A&E has the entire first season of "Murder, She Wrote" on DVD. It's a three disk set, complete with the original pilot movie. Hint, hint for anyone who might be Christmas shopping for me!*
Who knew about this Hallmark Channel gem? I've been here working because of an early deadline this week and have been glued to the TV because of the movies they have on today.

I watched "That Darn Cat" first - not the new one, the original, and then I watched "Pollyanna." "Parent Trap" will be on later. I'm a huge Hayley Mills fan; I grew up watching her movies. Now, "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" is on, and I am an even bigger fan of Angela Lansbury. I loooove "Murder She Wrote!" I want to be Jessica Fletcher when I grow up so I can go around solving mysteries all the time!! :)
The only thing about the Hallmark Channel is they keep showing those Hallmark card commercials - there is one in particular that is making me cry every time. It's about a four-year-old girl whose father had died. She bought him a Hallmark card and tied it to a balloon. Then, her and her mom, hand in hand, released the balloon in to the air so it could bring the card to her Dad in Heaven with the angels. Now, tell me that wouldn't make you cry!

I LOVE the Hallmark commercials! My favorite (from a number of years ago) is the one with the little girl playing with her best friend over a number of years. Turns out her best friend is a guy and she winds up marrying him.

It's good for a whole box of Kleenex.

Did you ever wonder what was wrong with Mrs. Fletcher in that she knows so many murderers?

She just has an *interesting* circle of friends. ;)
I still want to be her when I grow up - jetting off all over the world, men falling for her at every locale, writing internationally best-selling mysteries ...

The one you mentioned in your blog would make me cry. Especially since it's almost 15 years since my dad passed and sometimes I wish I could do that for him
