"I carried a watermelon..."

 ♪ ♪...hey...heeeey...........baby.....I wanna know.......if you'll be my girl.....♪♪♪

Well, I watched it AGAIN last night
...and I have now LOST count of how many times I've  watched this movie.

WHAT IS IT about this little 1987 movie that continues to leave us breathless ?
***
"That was the summer of 1963, when everybody called me Baby, and it didn't occur to me to mind. That was before President Kennedy was shot, before the Beatles, when I couldn't wait to join the Peace Corps, and I thought I'd never find a guy as great as my dad. That was the summer we went to Kellerman's."
Baby Houseman
Is it THE MAN himself .....?
He was such a great actor......and talented at dancing.
 Now, for some, he was very handsome....
not so much for me,
 but I sure liked his acting....O, I thought he was cute enuf...
 Johnny:  " Look, spaghetti arms. This is my dance space.
 This is your dance space. 
I don't go into yours, you don't go into mine.
 You gotta hold the frame. "
 ♥
Is it that no other man on the planet could have played
JOHNNY
as well as Patrick ?
The dancing he did in this movie........WHOA !


Or is it the adorable BABY.....?
(I would KILL for all that beautiful hair)

 Baby: "Oh, yes, as a matter of fact it is. We're supposed to do the show in two days, you won't show me the lifts, I'm not sure of the turns, I'm doing all this to save your ass, what I really want to do is drop you on it! "

 Is it the awesome, breath-stopping chemistry
between the two ?
"Me?  I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you."
Baby Houseman

Is it that just about every woman that loves the movie
would LOVE to have been  on that log with him....?
*

or....was it all the Dirty Dancing....????
You have to admit, it made our hearts beat a little faster...pulse race..
daydream a little bit while watching ....maybe going back in memory
to another place...another time....*whew......

I think ALL OF IT combined, made it one of the most
 loved movies of the time.
Olden people and young alike seem to have it on their FAVORITE MOVIES list.


FOR ME....
it was THE DANCING
....and the MUSIC.

WIPEOUT
HEY BABY
I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE
and the list goes on.

 .....Jennifer Grey, how fun was it to make this movie with PATRICK SWAYZE  ?????
(ACTUALLY, I read somewhere they didn't really get along very good)..??

(IF I'm not mistaken, there's a blog out there with that very name...)

Whatever it was that made this a favorite movie of so many,
I hope to see THE MAGIC in another movie just like it.........SOON.

If you don't have the DVD, rent it.....


It's in one of my baskets of THE BEST MOVIES, EVER  ! !

Deep Freeze.....

Friday we spent the afternoon
 watching Texas Tech's baseball game in 80 degree weather.


This morning, Monday (23rd), it is snowing,
15 degrees with an expected HIGH of 27......

this photo was taken at 7 a.m. and with it being this cold,
I know the streets are already slick as snot glass !

Mr. Sweet goes to workout around 8 ea Fri. morning but decided not to get out there with all the crazy Lubbock drivers.


 I've blogged about this little musical snowman and little boy and girl.
When my mother was in the hospital for her 2nd bypass surgery over 20 yrs ago,
I bought this for her to see when she first woke up...
She never regained consciousness...and it still makes me cry.
♥ ♥


We didn't get very much snow..

mostly it just seems
COLD...!!


 Our late breakfast wasn't anything to write home about...
Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Toast...
Bacon...
Fruit...
Coffee


I really like this MORNING CAFE coffee for the Keurig...
not as good as Dunkin Donuts coffee, tho.
 

Left-over CHRISTMAS napkins went right along with our snowy theme this morning.

While I'm not planning on starting "seeds in a jar",

I AM going to re-pot this little plant so it will
GROW....
it's really root-bound in that starter pot.

...other plants are doing very well....
will share that with you in a later post.


I am not sticking my nose out the door on this cold day...
I am surely going to be a HOMEBODY....


I have these 3 books I am anxious to read...especially THE SHACK.

I am going to get all settled in my comfy chair by the patio doors so I can
watch it snow and read at the same time.....O....and drink lots of hot tea...
and maybe have a cookie or two.
**************
Sounds wonderful for such a cold, icy day....


So many friends have read it and say it's a wonderful story.


The other two books are both written by fellow bloggers.
I'll be sure to give them a review after I've read them.....

 OOO...

and meant to tell you these cute bowls came from Walmart.

I think they have them almost every year at the start of winter..
.hot cocoa packets were packed with them...and you can look in the SEASONAL aisle to find them.
