Cover of This Property Is Condemned
It's a good movie, a good SAD movie, with Robert Redford and Natalie Wood. I was channel surfing and heard the theme song playing, "WISH ME A RAINBOW", and I was in! (You can watch the movie on YOUTUBE too!)
This started me to thinking about the great movies I've seen over the years, and the great chocolates I've eaten while I was laughing or singing along in the theater. They're not the best, but there's nothing like eating Goobers, Raisinets, and Whoppers in a theater while you're sitting in the dark.
A real good movie nowadays though, calls for a real good chocolate.
And this is what I call a good chocolate, 'Russell Stover's'! And Russell Stover's and I have been good friends for a LONG time! A box of them was one of the first presents I ever received from my hubby over 32 years ago!
The box I got then was a box of creams. I've refined my tastes since then. Now it's GOT to be these...
...Nut, Chewy & Crisp Centers or as I call them 'Nutty, Chewy, Crunchy"! And I like my movies the same way,...nutty, chewy, crunchy! So there's nothing better than getting a box and picking through them...
...while you watch a good movie. A 'Nutty' piece...
....gets chomped through with a 'Nutty' movie, like "Bringing Up Baby", with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. Talk about NUTTY!!...And just plain good fun! Of course, if you like musicals, "7 Brides For 7 Brothers" fits the bill too!
A "Chewy" chocolate...
...like these, calls for a 'Chewy' movie, or one you have to mentally chew on a bit. Two movies that fit this bill are "To Sir, With Love" with Sidney Poitier in his hayday, and "The Mirror Has Two Faces" with Barbara Streisand. And both of these, while they set your mind to thinking about what you had to go through when you were young, and when you got older, to grow up and get more secure with yourself, also have good music.
Now, for "Crunchy" you need this...
...and this--> "Fried Green Tomatoes". This is a 'Crunchy' movie because you don't know what's really going on until...Crunch time! There's a 'Who Dunnit' going on all the way through and then, trust me, there's a big CRUNCH!
So, needless to say, I'm not craving chocolates anymore this morning. That craving was all wrapped up in a little bow! :-)
Today I'm going to focus on another scarf I have on the agenda. I'll share some photos with you of that one tomorrow. Happy Movie-ing!! And I'd love to know what chocolates you like?!
In The Mirror, I See Me
The lines of history are there,
just like a book upon the shelf;
And they are written so that you see
that I'm no longer just myself.
I did not see it before now-
my mother's hair and brother's teeth,
my sister's honey-colored skin-
have stolen time, just like a thief.
The mirror's image always was
of me alone-just here and now;
But as I age, and years go by,
I see granddaddy's furrowed brow.
I see my auntie's pug, round nose;
and my uncle's sun-bleached spots.
It is amazing -one-by-one,
the way it all connects the dots.
They have written on the pages
of the book of life I see;
When I look into the mirror
I no longer just see me.
It is a thing I must accept,
instead of fighting who to be.
I will accept my life's reflection,
and I'll smile at what I see,
when, in the mirror, I see me.
