Sandy Mc said...

A, on the movies...Top Gun is one I *might* like to see over and again. I have it on VHS. It meant a lot to me because it was filmed on Roy's ship. One of his buddies actually met TC. But for me, Roy and I did 3 1/2 years of basically forced seperation while he was on the USS Enterprise...so I could watch that ship and "see him"
Donna,I noticed your website list...glad we connected:)

ness said...

this thread makes me so hungry....Chinese food at the Hunan House or the Lilac House : ) BDs...
Don's potato soup....it's 8 in the morning and I could eat any of it right this minute...

Sandy...you are so funny...really? A deckhand?????

Top Gun. That's a makeout movie (giggle). I went to camp with a guy who had the entire thing memorized and would "replay" it while we waited in the food line....with beeps for the bad words....

(Court...is your heart going flutter-flutter?)

A said...

Yeah, pretty sure I still have most of it memorized. I couldn't tell you how many times I've seen it. It is iconic of my Junior High years. What memories . . .

"And, what were you doing there?"

"Communicating"

"Yes, keeping up international relations"

"You know, giving him, the bird."




Possibly the best line in the whole movie . . .
"This is going to be complicated."

And how many of us actually tried the "singing the Righteous Brothers song routine" thinking it would actually work like the movie?

Yep, guilty.

ness said...

A, your singing...that's on tape somewhere in the vault of BBC's IMC right? At least there's a pic in the yearbook.

A said...

Ok, maybe I'm having complete mental blockage, but I'm not sure what you're referring to?

Sandy Mc said...

Yep...a deckhand. It was the summer of 1976...I had just turned 16. My folks trusted me alot as they dropped me off in Evansville IN to live with the owner, his family, and the crew. We were there for about a month then moved the boat to it's summer port, Peoria IL (which is where I grew up) and then I stayed with my grandparents during the week. Bought my first car (a pretty worn out 66 Mustang for $250) Got to meet John Hartford, he was something;) He got inspiration from the river life and traveled with us when we moved the boat. At 15 MPH upstream it took about a week to travel to IL. He would play his "fiddle" and do a jig in the pilot house. Ahhh, memories...

Sandy Mc said...

Oh and Ness... have you tried East Buffet in Fayetteville? They have a mongolian grill. It is the chinese restraunt of choice for the asian students at UofA.

ness said...

Yeah, Sandy, way better than steakhouse hostessing....

A....it was the lipsinc wasn't it? Nicole.....Nicole...Barnes, wasn't it????

A said...

It's foggy, but it's coming back. Was it the lip sync or a communications hour skit? Seems like it could have been either.
