Jaws (1975) Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment
"See it, before you go swimming"
Recently, I joined The Humor Bloggers.com where I participated in the Humor Blogger Carnival hosted by one of our funniest bloggers on the web, Ettarose, at ettarose-edgeofsanity. If you wished to join the carnival you could write on one of two subjects and chose your own title. One of the subjects was how did you grow up in the decade you were born, such as the 50's 60's or 70's and I decided to write about the seventies, and chose the title Growing Up In The Seventies.
Well, by now, you probably think you know where I'm going with this since Jaws was released in 1975, and you would be correct, however, I would also like to dedicate this Saturday's Favorite Movie Moment to The Humor Bloggers, (because it's one of my new pop-stands) in addition to the host of the first Humor Carnival, Ettarose from ettarose-edgeofsanity, and you didn't know that.
Here's what I wrote about the film in my post,
It sounds silly now, but at the time that Jaws was in theaters it scared everyone half to death. The movie chilled you to the bone so bad, that my best friend, my brother, and I could not go to sleep the night we saw it.
It was ridiculous...but we kept thinking irrational thoughts. For instance, I kept telling myself that it was impossible for a shark to crawl on shore, flag down a taxi, come to our house, and devour all three of us while we slept in our beds. I also had another imagined scenario, which involved a great white out on the town dining to Jaws “music” while he munched on my rib cage; a nightmare too horrifying for me to swallow alone. No pun intended- so the three of us ended up piled in the bed together the night we saw the movie in 1975.

Have a great Saturday, full of fun, love, and laughter~

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