Things I Never Get Tired Of

1.  I hate commercials.  I think most people do.  They are at least 10  volume decimals higher than regular programing.  I don't know why they think they have to scream at us. One that I don't mind is the Dodge Ram truck commercials with Sam Elliot doing the voice over.  I confess, Sam could read the phone book and I would be there from A to Z. 

2.  Long gone are the "Like A Rock", Bob Seger, Chevy truck commercials.  You trust Bob Seger, right?  He didn't yell.  Just play the song.  Simple. To the point.

3.  About once a year I read "The Great Gatsby".   I don't doubt it is wrapped up in my memories with Robert Redford.  In my head, Jay Gatsby's voice is always Robert Redford.   It's a short book of a time long gone,  that I would have loved to observe like Nick Carraway.

4.  Motown..... What can I say.  I grew up 90 minutes from Detroit in the Motown glory days.

5.  Yankee Candles
6.  Top Gun    and   Sleepless in Seatle      These I never grow tired of.

What are favorites?  What do you never grow tired of?

Thank you for the support! I am obviously new to this world of blogging. My husband and I are from Durham.
I miss the sense of history you get living in the South. It is very hard to find in California.

I love Sam Elliot--and his voice :) I'm also a Bob Segaer fan :) Robert Redford is one of my all-time favorite actors, along with Tom Cruise, which means I could watch Top Gun over and over... and I LOVE Motown music...The Supremes, The Temptations, and on down the list!

Kathy... Are you a sister I didn't know I had?

I like the Christmassy Budweiser ads with the big horses...


I have re-read some of Tom Clancey's first novels. I still get nausuous when I see Sean Connery doing a Russian Sub Driver.

Top Gun has some awesome film - I loved Kelly McGillus in "Witness".

A good glass of wine. Dinner and conversation. My fav books--I go back to them often. Oh and the water. Any body of water. Can't get enough.

Oh Fried Green Tomatoes and Far and Away..and Dances with Wolves ( I am in mourning..just cracks me up) then anything Lassie, and Where the Red Fern Grows and Old Yeller. Sean Connery..I have a thing for him, his voice, his pony tail..uffda..he makes me breathe all funny...I could watch a movie about paint drying as long as he was in it.
I love the Bee Gees and then the malt shop do whop songs the silly ones that have a catchy chorus so I can sing along really loud whilst I am alone in the car!
And Red, I never tire of the color red:)

I love cable television, the movie and music channels the best. Steel Magnolias, the Harry Potter movies, Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series with Sarah Michelle Geller, anything by The Beatles, Dick Van Dyke reruns, the book David Copperfield, and an older book "Honor Bright," written by American writer Frances Parkinson Keyes in 1936.
