19. Uncle Buck
20. The Goodbye Girl

The top six movies on the list I can quote parts verbatim! Many of the movies have risen to the frequently viewed status because they are on television so often...and I can't resist stopping and watching them (Uncle Buck and Greencard are in this category). The Wizard of Oz, Heidi, Wonderful Life and Kings of Kings have been favorites since I was young. Pride and Prejudice is climbing the list quickly.
I haven't seen The Goodbye Girl in 20 years! But I can remember some of the lines and some of the dance that reminds me that I really loved that movie at one time. I am going to rent it this week.

They are not all squeaky clean :o) So check before you rent any of them...if you are worried about the content.

Funny story....Many years ago, I recommended my sister and husband rent Parenthood. I raved about how funny it was! So my sister rented the movie. A few days later I asked her how she and her husband like it.

"Well, we really thought it was a weird movie."

"Weird? How was it weird?"

"The parents were cannibals."


"Oh, Sis, You were watching Parents not Parenthood!"

" I kept telling my husband...Donna says this is a really funny movie!?!?"

Yikes! Get the titles right :o)


The Ten Commandments in Verse

Above all else love God alone;
Bow down to neither wood or stone.
God's name refuse to take in vain;
The Sabbath rest with care maintain.
Respect your parents all your days;
Hold sacred human life always.
Be loyal to your chosen mate;
Steal nothing neither small nor great.
Report, with truth, your neighbor's deed;
And rid your mind of selfish greed."

from the MuGuffey Reader

I think I will commit that to memory. It's sweet. snowy, pretty Wisconsin
