This Week-end's Favorite Movie Moment



I was running late posting Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment, so I decided to change the posts title to This Week-ends Favorite Movie Moment. Because one of a woman's greatest joys is the prerogative to change her mind.

In addition, I've decided to familiarize myself with "Towanda's" attitude, much like Evelyn Couch, (Kathy Bates) did a fine job of accomplishing in this scene from Fried Green Tomatoes.

Fried Green Tomatoes stars Jessica Tandy, Kathy Bates, Mary Stuart Masterson, Mary Louise Parker, and Chris O'Donnell.

In this week-ends favorite movie moment Evelyn Couch (Kathy) becomes her "new independent self" Towanda with a little help from her new hormone pills. I'm not sure if I'm hormone ready, but I have a feeling these pills will come in handy someday.

If you haven't seen Fried Green Tomatoes, it's time to rent it, because this movie has it all- it's a terrific film.

Enjoy and have a great week-end.

I love this movie and I especially love this scene! I have been working to add my Cheer Me Up Award to my site. Unfortunately WP2.5 has a few quirks, which is making it slow going. I hope all is well in your world!

Makoy, I usually can't understand contests or I'm unable to do something required, but I'll be more than happy to check yours out.

Thank you for the drop too, and I will stop by and have a look at your contest- everyone can use extra money, right? Thank you for inviting me, and it's nice to meet you.

Robert, I'm glad you're going to rent it, you will not be disappointed, and don't forget you're supposed to rent Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid too.

There are just some movies, like books, that are required reading or watching. (LOL)

Besides, aren't you tired of Smokey and the Bandit?

Thanks for watching it for me, and let me know what you think, o.k.?

Have a great week~

Bud, You love this one too? Wow, that is eerie, but a good eerie. I love stories about unlikely friendships.

Friendships that wouldn't exist except for a shared circumstance or conflict that threatens their physical or emotional survival.

And these type of movies can be written as farces, light comedy, or drama- because the triumph over hardship and the endurance of the human spirit are the story of our lives's and you know what they say about art imitating life.

Not to mention the hilarious situations we get ourselves into- I'm sorry, I sound like a bad English Professor, or something.

I've been going on and on...with this comment.

Basically, (not that you asked) I like movies that remind us of our ability to rise to the occasion, because it's what I want to believe about people- that we have the power to survive anything, especially if we have the support and love we need from one another.

Actually, it doesn't surprise me that we like the same movies, because we share the same taste in music, and music also connects the most unlikely characters and helps us through the most difficult times.


Music will always be here for us, like the open arms of a good friend, no matter what our differences, situations or hardships.

It's amazing how many wonderful friends I've met since I've been blogging, and you're right, it seems eerie when you share many of the same tastes, but it's a good kind of eerie because you know someone gets it~

Thanks for your support, and thank you for the comment you left on my -Shh...Don't wake her- post.

Friends really do lift your spirit and keep your heart strong through difficult times. I know because you and a few other bloggers have proved it to me~ :))

Hugs, and have a great week, Bud~

P.S. Sorry for such a long comment- to borrow an expression from Misty Dawn, "The comment police" will be busting down my door any minute.

Ann said...

Beeker, I'm so glad you saw you were nominated, and I hope you work it out, but that was not my main concern.

You're just the greatest and I wanted to make sure you knew you were nominated. Congratulations and thanks for cheering me up!

I want to thank you as well for the fantastic comment you left on my "Shh...Don't Wake Her" post.

You've got so much compassion Sandee, and I'm glad you're my friend.

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.
