Saturdays Favorite Movie Moment: Turner And Hooch (and sort of a review)


Happy Saturday~ This Saturdays favorite movie moment is from the hilarious film, Turner And Hooch. Turner and Hooch hit theaters in 1989 starring Tom Hanks, Hooch, and Mare Winningham. The film is about the friendship that develops between a Detective and his only witness to a crime- the victims dog- who has the worst manners of any dog in history.

Ordinarily, Hooch's lack of obedience training would have been the least of Detective Scott Turners (Hanks character) concerns, except since the murder the two crime fighters are forced to become roommates, although at least they're after the same bad guy.

This clip is Turner's way of encouraging Hooch to stay in his "room" at night- because his refusal to do so is causing...well, a few problems in Turner's personal and professional life.

It's an oldie but goodie, and one of A Nice Place In The Sun's (me) favorite movie moments~ (same as every movie moment on Saturday)

Thank you for watching and reading~

And have a happy, crazy, zany, and fun Saturday and week-end~

Silly note:

I'm going to sing in the car today while I run errands- So if you're out and about singing in your car, chances are we may be singing the same song at the same time, or at least having fun at the same time, or singing a different song at the same time...

I'll be in my car in about an hour, but it could be anytime of the day- Therefore, leave a comment and let me know if you sang in the car today and about what time of the day it was, like morning, noon, or afternoon. Maybe we will have been singing at the same time. Wouldn't that be cool? :))

Anyway, enjoy the clip~ And happy singing~ :)

I was singing "We have only just begun" by the Carpenters at 9:00 AM (about)
Their songs were a bit sappy, but I just can't help but like them.

"... we'll find a place where there's room to roam" I was singing it again! Now, it be playing in my head all day :-)

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...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

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.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
