the miracle worker

any one remember the movie the miracle worker . i just saw it on t.v. tonight and it is a terrific movie. go here to read the traier about the movie . anne bancroft won an academy award for best actress in the movie and sixteen year old, patty duke, won best supporting actress.
if you have not seen this movie i suggest you go rent it . now if you are one of these emotional types then i suggest you get a good supply of tissues because you are going to cry, especially at the end of the movie . tom hanks in the movia a league of their own said , "there is no crying in baseball " but there is crying when watching the miracle worker so just be forwarned.
what old movies have you seen that made you cry. think back now because there are probably a few. the 1957 movie, old yeller will get me started ever time. the 1946 film ,the yearling , will crank up some big tears ever time. the 1989 movie, dead poets society , with robin williams is another. have you ever seen the 1996 movie,eye for an eye .now if you want to see a movie that will fire you up in a new york minute see an eye for an eye . just go an google that title and read about the movie and you will get mad. now keifer sutherland may be your favorite guy when he is playing jack bauer in 24 but when he is robert doob in an eye for an eye
you want to kill the guy . trust me on this.
well thats all for now. i will leave you with a quote from the t.v. show, hill street blues, by Sergeant Phil Esterhaus: 'Hey, let's be careful out there."

you got mail

have you ever seen the movie you got mail . the stars are tom hanks and meg ryan and it is a very good movie. i have seen it many times. Kathleen Kelly, meg ryan, owns a small children's book store, but is coming under competition from Joe Fox , tom hanks, who owns Fox Books, a megastore with a cafe and discounted books. The two become rivals, without realising that the romance they are conducting anonymously on the internet is with each other. in the movie tom hanks and meg ryan can't wait to get home so they can get on the web and check there e-mail. they have met on the internet and they seem to be able to talk to each other about any thing. they are falling for each other even though they have never met in person. in fact they are afraid to meet because it may spoil their relationship. the story reminds me of many people who live together for years and are not married. they get along great but the outside world thinks they should get married, especially the relatives. so after a while they give in to the pressure and make that final step and tie the knot. then what usually happens is with in the year they are getting a divorce and breaking up and most of the time hate each other. i myself have a son that lives with a woman who has two children and he has been with her for years. he does not want to get married and luckily either does she. i think if they did that would end that relationship real fast. do you know any one that is like this , is it you ? tell us your story about you or some one you know that is like that.

hello all-guess who?

surprise surprise , yes it is me . you are probably tired of reading blogs with perfect grammar and spelling and if that is the case you have come to the right place. i have to apologize for not posting first of all. i am not dead as some of you might have thought. i am alive and well and still living here in ga. i found out that my friend walker got hit by a car and we talked a bit yesterday. i am going to have to go to his blog and see what he had to say about that. i hate to have to go to that extreme to have some thing to write about in my blog although it sounds like a helluva story , is helluva a word, if not it should be. i hope every one is doing fine and still paying attention to their blog. if not i won't have any thing to read today. i have been taking it quite easy the past month or so except for the four or five days i worked at my daughters house. she bought herself a one hundred year old house and it needs a lot of work. you have to tackle the job like you were eating an elephant, one bite at a time. if you think about all that needs to be done it is to overwhelming. i know that is the way she feels because she told me she can not sleep good for thinking about all that needs to be done on it. my wife has been buying grocery coupons on ebay and we have been doing a lot of shopping and stocking up. so now we have the frig filled up and all the kitchen cabinets and even have sone can goods in the back storage room so we are set for a while.

i worked on my own house for so long i have a lot of stuff that i need to get rid of so i finally ordered one of those roll off dumpsters to throw it all away. those darn things are expensive to rent. i might as well buy one except then where would i store it . they are probably to expensive any way. that reminds me , i had a clamp on my muffler that came off and i went to the muffler place and wanted them to put a new clamp on. guess what that cost? one clamp and it took about 10 minutes to put it on in all, forty five dollars my friends . what a rip off. you just can't win . well i think i will go now and check out a few blogs. i am going to start with walkers. i have to get all the details about his hit and run guy or girl. he wasn't sure who hit him . he was to busy trying to jump out of the way. talk to you guys later.

hello all

well today is monday and i got 6 and a half hours sleep last night which is a lot for me. i usually go to bed around 3 a.m. but last night i went to bed at 1:30 . i have not shaved yet so it seems like i am still asleep. i always feel better after i shave. it seems to wake me up. maybe looking in the mirror at my ugly face scares me in to waking up, i don't know but that could be it. do you ever do any thing to try and wake yourself up . i drink a lot of coffee and i probably shouldn't and that helps some. i think having a bright light on and looking at the light will wake you up a bit. what do you do? it looks a little cloudy today but they say on the radio it is going to be a nice day. i listen to talk radio a lot. when i was young more people had radios than t .v's . some of you never had a t.v. or watched one that had bad reception so you may not understand what i am talking about. well imagine taking your t.v. and hooking up a long extension cord and taking it outside . now when you get outside it starts to snow fairly hard . now as long as the t.v. is on its snowing and when its off it"s not . now to make the picture better you have to attach an antenna to your t.v. and go find another person to hold that antenna and turn it in different directions so the picture looks like you may need prescription glasses . now even with this extra person, usually a family member, walking around with the antenna and moving it in different directions that may still not be enough to get that almost clear picture . so get out some aluminum foil and wrap it around the antenna, ah thats much better. now that your family member has been walking around for 30 minutes with t.v. antenna in hand with the aluminum foil on it it gets to be your turn to relieve him of his duties. he or she may want to watch a t.v. program also and may want his hands free to eat a snack. what the heck, fair is fair.
