Matt1: Hello Rush!

Rush: Hi, Matt!

Rush: How are you tonight…how was Disney?

Matt1: I didn’t realize there was a colorized Chan!

Matt1: Very good and “magically” as always, thnx!

Matt1: Hope you are well too

Rush: Well…it seems to me it was done as inexpensively as possible!

Rush: BUT…interesting!

Matt1: I scanned through it and agree

Rush: Doing well, thank you! Marie and I are both back at work.

Matt1: For me, I’m a b/w Chan fan

Rush: In our new schools…

Matt1: Ah, very good

Rush: Yes, I agree, basically, about the black/white issue.

Rush: It is interesting to see how “color” adds a dimension.

Matt1: Smooth so far at school?

Matt1: Agreed

Rush: Yes, not bad at all at school, really!

Rush: I am amazed at what kids “get away” with in high school today, though!

Matt1: Is that where you are at now?

Rush: Gum chewing, cell phones active a LOT!

Rush: Funny to see a few boys with beards!

Rush: I think some students have tatoos!

Matt1: Ugh,,,,,I can’t imagine how my parents would react

Rush: I had to do all I could just to have my hair a little long!

Rush: (as in hiding a lot!)

Rush: Our website is acting up and we are going to have to change over to another host ASAP!

Matt1: Yep…..actually, I’m pretty sure I swallowed gum on a few occasions, to avoid getting caught, lol

Rush: It seems I cannot publish certain changes I make now!

Matt1: Oh no!

Rush: Yes.

angel landini & foxx furr: I love the script font.

Louise: very red

Rush: That was the only one I could find to watch this week.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: The images look like someone has gone to town with a crayon. VERY dramatic!

Hounder: Cream soda is good. Birch beer is better

mda19083: i appreciate your humor nt

Hounder: Nitevall. Mom wants me to read to her. Hope to be able to stay next week.

Dona: But the house is older built in 1980

Rush: NT, that’s because his captive audience is NOT amused.

Nothere: Thanks guys, but I meant the guy in the movie.

Rush: Poor June.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: I guess Wyatt didn’t type that note.

angel landini & foxx furr: I just got my house in Dec.2019, have talked to handyman about what to do to get the doors dependable.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Unless it’s an 8 year old note.

Matt1: Swift justice

Louise: Nice gray suit, Charlie

Rush: The Hall of Records building in Los Angeles.


Rush: If you can…note the word “Chan” on this signed picture by toler…

Nothere: Sam Spade:)

Godwinshelley2: Chinese also say “Wind is the mother of a thousand diseases.”

angel landini & foxx furr: “Chan”!

mda19083: love it rush!


Louise: I think the suit is probably tan since the tan color pops out everyone once in a while.

angel landini & foxx furr: Does LA have a Hall of CDs? a Hall of Cassettes?

Rush: Note was actually penned by Toler.

Godwinshelley2: Nice Rush

Rush: Yes, Angel….Penn and Teller!

angel landini & foxx furr: WOW. I hope he enclosed money.

Rush: “What would CONFUSION say?”

Rush: There have to be SOME boarding houses left!

Louise: GS: good question

Nothere: There are I forget what their called. But you can rent peoples houses.

angel landini & foxx furr: Phils: I’l bet he used a bit of those hours in the bar!

Rush: Maybe today they are called “Bed and Brweakfast” places!

sarabell2: There are boarding houses here in Atlanta, they just rent out rooms in houses. No dinner table with snappy dialog, though.

Rush: Yes, Phil!

angel landini & foxx furr: TYSM

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Without a doubt angel, murder cases are stressful.

mda19083: snappy dialog is extra

Rush: Especially for the victim!

angel landini & foxx furr: Phils: Each case requires a case!

Louise: she’s growing flowers on that dress

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Yeah baby!

Rush: Yes, Louise!

angel landini & foxx furr: I want to get clothes from a foundation.

Rush: So, Louise, how do I copy pages from this site and past them to WordPress?

Phil & Mrs. Phil: I want clothes from an institution. Federal, state, doesn’t matter.

Rush: Do I need to copy the HTML?

angel landini & foxx furr: WAAAAAIT A MINNNNNNNNNNUTE

Rush: Maybe she’s settle for a fox fur?

Louise: Rush: did you see the email I sent to you today? It explains the process.

angel landini & foxx furr: She’s always depended on the kahhhhndness of stryyyyyngers.

Nothere: Sorry this is a Chan film. You’ll have to settle for a white fox fur.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: What the…is that?

Rush: Yes.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: I’m shocked.

mda19083: white fox fur?

angel landini & foxx furr: Shocked to find gambling in the casino.

Rush: I looked it over quickly as the Chat was munutes away.

angel landini & foxx furr: WFF, to the cognoscenti.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: No..I’d say those feathers came from an egret.

Louise: Rush: okay, lets discuss over email

angel landini & foxx furr: THIS is a GREAT doubletalk bit!!

Rush: Nice use of rear projection here in the Chan scenes.

Rush: Yes, Angel!

angel landini & foxx furr: “can’t recap them wrinkles”

Louise: Hay fever

Benjamin: “They can’t recap them wrinkles.”

Louise: Hi brother this time

Rush: YES!

Dona: I really like that scene

Rush: Me too!

Rush: We have the entire dialog transscribed at this site.

angel landini & foxx furr: Rush: i saw an old ad for a GOUGE with which one (not US, of course) could make “tread” in bald tires!!

sarabell2: It is like the scary movie kevin hart dialog

Rush: There was a fly on the prisoner’s left shoulder.

Rush: Foggy and Punchy.

angel landini & foxx furr: Not much longer would you be mine?

Rush: Tim Ryan.

Rush: He’ll be Lt. Mike Ruark in the Winters portion of the Chan series.

Rush: We also saw him in “Dead Men tell” as the bartender.

Louise: Are they holding hands?

mda19083: is this where they make the license plates

Rush: Giving prisoners KNIVES to work with????

angel landini & foxx furr: I am beside my Foxx with fascination.

Nothere: And how long has it been since we’ve seen a gaurd?

Rush: A while!

Rush: s this any way to run a prison?

Louise: The law doesn’t frame men???

sarabell2: Those are the cleanest cut looking prisoners I ever saw.

Rush: “Nothing is impossible.”

angel landini & foxx furr: EXACTLY.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Yes Louise, they were holding hands.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Not a good look in prison.

Rush: Russell Hicks as the Warden.

Louise: Tin cups. Good for making weapons

angel landini & foxx furr: They should issue Tupperware mugs to those mugs.

Rush: Yes…unless they are already given KNIVES!

Rush: Punchy is pretty elloquent!

Nothere: Ah yes people are always pals with people who put them in prision.

Phil & Mrs. Phil: If you ever watched a Thin Man movie, you’d know that’s true.

angel landini & foxx furr: ALWAYS, in the movies! Makes ME wanna be a criminal, or at least go to the jug!

Rush: IF they can look at the brighter side of life…and can admit to themselves that they deserved their sentence!

angel landini & foxx furr: He’ll give it a whorl.

angel landini & foxx furr: Remember Knockout, in Mr.Moto?

Rush: YES!

Phil & Mrs. Phil: Admirable angel

angel landini & foxx furr: I owe it all!

angel landini & foxx furr: “Lawsuit” definition is cute!
