Constance Bennett's Spanish Chicken

I was very down in the dumps yesterday. Uncharacteristically well and truly fed up and when I got home I was feeling very sorry for myself indeed. But there on my doormat was a small parcel, addressed to me. This was a surprise as only my mother and my sister know my postal address and I could tell from the writing it was from neither of them.

To my immense joy it was from my old friend PJ in Warrington. He'd sent it to my folks and they had forwarded it on. And joy of joys it was a MIX-CD from the legendary KING of the MIX-CD. I'd seen from his blog that he was transferring his vinyl to digital files and he's been a good and true friend and made me a CD selection. I had no time to listen to it last night so plan to do so this evening in an old fashioned style whilst eating my dinner - the leftovers of the Spanish Chicken I made for Charley on Sunday night. Can't WAIT. Thank you PJ! This has cheered me up no end.

I am so sorry you were feeling down--that isn't like you, I know. But how nice to have such a lovely surprise. I'll have to get Evan to make you some mix cds before I come over (he has a legendarily large record collection, as broad as it is long with something for all tastes).I hope your chicken was tasty too.

I'm just about to start teaching my Hollywood before 1960 class and I had such fun choosing screenings--some of them made me think of you.
