10 Questions??

OK.. so after the last post about my Son’s house catching fire.. I thought I would lighten it up a bit.  In my morning routine of reading through the blogs I follow I found a blog asking 10 questions.  Well I figured I’d share my answers.. Enjoy!

1.You can only watch one television show again for the rest of your life…what do you pick and why?
Gunsmoke_thumbGunsmoke.  I love the old westerns and as cheesy as they seem these days there is always something redeeming about the guy in the white hat saving the day or making it all right.
The other reason is that many young actors got their start on shows like Gunsmoke, its fun to see them at the start of their careers.

2.They are making a movie of your life and you get to add one fictional event…what do you add and why?
I think for a good action sequence in the movie of my life I would like to be in a X wing star fighter taking out the newly rebuilt death star.  Then once I am given the high five for being the best fighter pilot in the star system, I become a Jedi.

3.What is your favorite movie in the following genres: comedy, children’s, and Hallmark (yes, that seems to be its own genre now)?
Comedy? Blazing Saddles
Childrens? Toy Story.. or anything from Pixar
Hallmark? Whatever my wife is watching.. ya know.. happy wife.. happy life.

4.What are your top three classic television shows?
Gunsmoke, Andy Griffith, and M*A*S*H

5.What television show deserves a come back?

Originally read on Teresa’s blog over at The Haunted Wordsmith,  But I picked it up at a blog that I follow Welcome to Our Campfire (Coles’s Campfire). I enjoyed reading the answers of the other blogs, and as Lana said.. “I have been tagged”… so I suppose you are tagged too… what do you think.. share your answers, either on your blog or in the comments section.  Have some fun with it… after all I think I am the Fonz in outer space!

The BIG 5 List- Christmas Movies

For our introductory BIG 5 List we are going to look at the Holiday’s… This is my BIG 5 All time favorite Christmas Movies.
Let me know what yours favorite Christmas Movies are…
Here we go

5.  A Christmas Carol (1951)
There has been many versions of this classic.  Early in High School I became a fan of Dickens.  I think the 1951 version starring Alastair Sim as Scrooge tells the story best for me.
The effects are cheesy, but the acting is superb! A great Christmas movie that brings a chill down your spine and warms your heart at the same time.
4.  White Christmas
What can you say.  This is the ultimate Christmas classic.  The music and dance keep me coming back.  It just never seems to get old for me.  Yeah.. would not make a popular movie these days, but there is something about White Christmas that brings me back to watching it as a kid.  I love Danny Kaye in most everything he did.  This movie just screams Christmas to me.white-christmas-christmas-movies-1534792971
3.  National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
This is my go to silly Christmas movie.  A timeless classic that is full one liners and scenes that come up at every family Christmas party.  Eddy is the ultimate RVer and a classic case of how not to dump your black tank.
2.  It’s a Wonderful Life
You just can not go wrong with It’s a Wonderful life.  A great message of hope and grace. There is something about Jimmy Stewart that will always bring me back to this classic.its-a-wonderful-life-christmas-movies-1534791161
1.  A Christmas Story.
Love this movie for a bunch of reasons, but namely because for years a bunch of our friends have gotten together for a gift exchange and to watch a Christmas movie.  This was the go to movie for many years.
There is something about the nostalgia of Christmas past.  Simpler times perhaps, it makes me want to have grown up back then.a-christmas-story-christmas-movies-1534790083
