I don't remember her name but one of my mother's high school classmates was a minor actress. She did a couple of movies with John Wayne.

Drury High School class of 1949.

We probably wouldn't make it on Thursday either I'm afraid. Our oldest son & his family are coming in Thursday afternoon. We haven't seen them in almost 2 years so this is a special occasion. In fact, all 5 of our kids are going to be here this weekend with their families. This hasn't happened in about 6 years so Tessa & I are very excited. This is going to be really great! Sorry about not making the quiz again. I hope you can get enough of the others to participate.

I think I am doing it Friday because two said Friday and two said they did not care. I will give you the names of the movies as bonuses in a day or two. Looks like two Hitchcock and another one along with the Quiz movie.

Holidays are supposed to be fun. So I am going to give it to you. What happens when you are a famous wanted man. Someone named Dr. Evil wants him bad. The bottom line is to---Kill Austin Powers.

MeTV Movie Quiz Of The Week

A Magnificent movie deserving of every accolade. You've had a hard life. Most around in the same situation. You and others wish to have a better life in the future. Everyone needs a leader to follow to help with these situations. There is such a man. Actors and director are at the top of the Cinema chain. Adventure, Biography, Drama. It just takes one guess to bring this to our movie screens. Who'll be the one. Meanwhile enjoy the entertainment below.

Fine Performances-Turn up your stereo!
Gerry and the Pacemakers Live - I Like It. October 28, 1964 at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.

I Fought The Law Bobby Fuller Four.

The Crystals - Da Doo Ron Ron.

Freddie & The Dreamers "I'm Telling You Now" on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection.

Chicago - 25 or 6 to 4 - 7/21/1970 - Tanglewood.

takes place at the Top of the World and the ownership of a secret microfilm lost by the commies which we now control. At least we think so. With an all-star cast it's a decent movie. A little slow at the start but the ending is well worth waiting for. With a Overture to boot.
Ice Station Zebra (1968) 2 hr 29 min-Adventure, Thriller
Director: John Sturges
Rock Hudson
Ernest Borgnine
Patrick McGoohan

You won't get your kicks on Route 66 here. No cheese either. Because what we have is this!!!!!
Destroy All Monsters....yep you heard me. You know when you get tired of the same ole thing you can always turn to this. Dubbed over voices but you have all the worlds monsters to deal with when GODZILLA attacks New York! RODAN devastates Moscow! MANDA obliterates London! and MOTHRA smashes Peking! What can one do, gulp? You have to get control and pronto or else the world we all live in will be kaput. After watching this you can say you've done that and you watched this and now life is totally complete. I say this with a straight face (eyes rolling).

You know the ones, you can't pronounce their names are all here.

That was posted by Texasluva actually. But it is an awesome picture. You might be able to find it by Googling the name in the lower right corner.
texasluva stephaniestavr5 34 months ago
It was I said the guy . Sometimes I look for pics using artists or just put in the word train tracks on Google. Then up above images. It will give you 100's of choices then find one using Search Google for image and it will sometimes pop up with dozens of sizes to use on your PC or other devices that might fit screen better. Also on this rail-road pic-right click on pic then click search for Google image. Then click all sizes. Up pops 100 or so pics of this image. Then whatever one you want you can save as (give it a name, unless you wish to use the name given). Tell me what you want and for a small fee I'll find it - just kidding, no charge. Below another one I picked at random.

How about knowing someone as rich as the Howells (at least for a little while).

I don't even know someone who knows someone (times three) that rich.

Some rich people have as much (maybe more) trouble as us poor(er) people.

77%. I chose Friend more than anything because many of the "answers" I needed weren't there. There were a couple I would've named as myself- lol!!!
