third movie...

Just finished watching Pippi Långstrump, the 1969 TV series, with Rebecka. I have a couple of connections to that movie...

First of all, I've actually been inside the house that they used for "Villa Villekulla", Pippi's wacky home. It's located on a beautiful island off the east coast of Sweden called Gottland.

Secondly, I've played in an orchestra with the composer, Georg Riedel, while performing some of his original (and very experimental) music. First (and last) time I ever played 13/16 time. If you like crazy music, you should check his stuff out.

PS. Why is the dosage for Ibuprofin behind some sticker that you have to peel back? Isn't this the most vital information?

PPS. Apparently, you can give Ibuprofin to your dog...

Who hasn't played with Riedel!?!

And watch that pull my finger trick with him. He's unusally "good" at it.

Get well, 'bita!
