Whoever heard of June Gloom in August? Most of the television weather people were chattering last week about the cloudy mornings, calling the weather some kind of phenomenon.
Of course by the time you read this column, the clouds will be gone and it will be considerably hotter. I will be taking my fancy hand-held fan that I got in Japan many years ago everywhere I go. I’ll also be savoring those lovely cool mornings we recently had.
A few weeks ago the La Cañada Thursday Club, along with other community philanthropic organizations and sundry book club members, were invited by the Disney Company to visit the La Cañada Regal Theatre to pre-screen the film, “The Help,” based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Kathryn Stockett.
The movie theater was completely full, with a predominantly female audience. It appeared the film was thoroughly enjoyed and there was a lot of buzz about the reincarnation of this greatly-loved book. I would have written about this pre-screening event before now, but the Disney people placed an embargo against the review of the film until the week the film was to be released — so I complied.
