Stand By Me...

I've decided to intermittently swap out pictures of my Dad.... So, I will change out the picture on the right every so often....


Here's how my mind works: I'm driving along, heading to work. I have the MP3 player going, and I am bopping along. The song "Wonderful World" comes on. Halfway through the song, "Stand By Me" floats through the jukebox in my head. That, naturally, leads my mind to wander to one of my all-favorite movies - "Stand By Me." And, that, leads me to thinking about some of the more memorable quotes:
-----
Teddy: I am acting my age. I'm in the prime of my youth and I'll only be young once.
Chris: Yeah, but you're gonna be stupid for the rest of your life.

-----
Milo: Chopper, sic'em, Boy!
The Writer: Now he said, "Sic'em, Boy", but what I heard was, "Chopper, sic balls!"

-----
Teddy: Did your mother have any kids that lived?
Vern: What do you mean?

-----
And my personal favorite, which happens to come at the very end:
The Writer: [typing on computer] I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?


Dodge has various "flavors" of its Ram Pick-ups... The two 'local' special editions are the "Big Horn" and the "Lone Star." I'm playing with the letters to see if I can come up with a cool or funny saying that I could put on my truck as the "whatever" edition (you can buy the lettering on eBay for little money). I don't have to use all the letters, either.. Just something different... I'll keep ya posted.... I'm not the lettering is 'close enough' to mix and match....



Maybe it's just me, but doesn't Edwin Hall (the suspect in the Kelsey Smith abduction) look a lot like a non-smiling, clean-shaven version of Chris Richardson (American Idol singer)?
