Raising Arizona

Ok, so you know how people have "Anthem Movies"...movies that are just part of you after you watch them? You are forever changed by the profound messages found within them? This is the case with Raising Arizona...a Coen Brothers film we discovered back in the late 80's. ? Anyway, this masterful piece was first viewed by us just prior to a Spring Break vacation when I was a Sophomore, I believe. We were so moved by this work, that we spent the entire break reciting movie lines...we were awash with the content of this film. A few of our Holly Hunter (Ed) faves:

"I need a baby, Hi, they got more than they can handle!!"
"We're a family now, everything's channgggeeddd"
"Turn to the right!"

A few of our Nick Cage (Hi) faves:

"That's one bonehead name, but that ain't me no more"
"I'll be takin these shere huggies and any cash ya got"
"Me and the boys is gonna kick back a couplea Cocacolas."

Anyway, over Memorial Day Andy brought a copy for us to view again. Graciously given to him by one kick butt guy, Mr. Ukle Andelesrey. :)

Here's some photos of our viewing session. I voted for "surprised eyes" in the second one, a'la the Bergs, but apparently my siblings have a lesser zest for surprised eyes. I look a bit more like surprised face, neck, torso, all over the dang place surprised. They opted for a more sophisticated and subdued approach. What-ev.

Feeding Foxes

Have you ever had foxes being fed right in your kitchen? This is the scene I discovered awhile back when I emerged from the bedroom after a marathon checkbook balancing session. Parenting note: Always wonder why they are playing quietly and harmoniously. Always. Too cute. Having a pet lover as a child leaves you with pets made out of brothers, insects, inanimate objects, etc. Did you KNOW foxes like oranges? Me neither. Good stuff!

Sorry for being a blogslacker. It's the last week of school, and the last week of baseball...so things will be much more current from here on. Thanks for being patient with me. I have all KINDS of things I have been wanting to blog about, so look out!

Happy Birthday Dad!

So, Grandpa just had another birthday. We celebrated here at our house with a french vanilla cake, filled with coconut cream filling, frosted with a mixture of cream cheese and whipped cream. Yummy stuff. I am so grateful to have the parents I have. They have, and continue to help me with the trials of life.

Happy Birthday, Papa!
