An Affair to Remember

Uhm. . . sorry to disappoint you, folks, I'm talking about the movie. . . not any spicy personal revelation! Today I worked in the yard quite awhile. It was hot and humid. I came in to rest and decided to watch a Netflix movie, An Affair to Remember, from 1957, starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. Now if you look at the list of movies I have rented from Netflix, you will find a lot of old movies - old westerns, old musicals, old romantic ones, old World War II stories. Oh! and I LOVE the old Dirty Harry movies with Clint Eastwood. . . Animal House with Jim Belushi. And American Graffiti. And I can't leave out Gone With The Wind, or even On Golden Pond. (If my kids ever read this, I can see their eyes rolling now) Rarely do I have an interest in current productions from Hollywood. They just don't make movies like they used to. Oops, am I showing my age???

I remember one Christmas, although I never verbalized it, I was hoping one of my boys would give me the soundtrack to Grease (now you remember that one, with John Travolta and Oliva Newton-John, don't you?). John did better than that. He gave me the video to the movie. I'm living proof. . . It takes a lot to wear out VHS videos! I've watched that one dozens of times over the years and last I put it in the VCR to watch, it was still just fine!

So, if you like romantic tales, check out An Affair to Remember. And I promise not to tell your friends if you take a look at some of the other oldies too.
