Have you ever seen the old black & white Katherine Hepburn/Spencer Tracy movie Pat & Mike? It's great! So romantic (yet the whole family could watch it!)...no bad language, no gratuitous sex or violence, and lots of cameos by famous athletes of the day!
The girls and I watched Pat & Mike this afternoon while we ate our half-price cheeseburgers and sugar-free Luigi's water ices. (The girls *loved* this light-hearted comedy...or perhaps they were just being polite to their Aunt Kristy...or maybe it's just that the lack of cable tv has made them desperate.)
Put it in your NetFlix queue and be sure to keep your eyes open for Jim Backus (THURSTON HOWELL THE THIRD!) and (TEXAN!) Babe Didrickson Zaharias and Chuck Conners (THE RIFLEMAN himself...one of my earliest childhood crushes!).
My favorite quote?
Hucko: "Hey, you want me to tell Mike on you?"
Pat (Katherine Hepburn): "He didn't make you and doesn't own you and you wouldn't go down the drain if he dropped you...you oughta' belong to yourself...You ought not be worried about anyone--Mike or anyone!"
I kid you not.
Happy Earth Day! Hope you wore your blue today.
