    Indeed I do Frenchy, the trouser frames came out in the early '60s - they did do the job, but remember what a 'bear' it was trying to get wet pants over them! They did look nice though - and I remember getting so frustrated w/ larc when he would throw them on the floor at night. When I was a youngin' it was my job to put the "ice sign" in the window to let the iceman know how many pounds we needed for the icebox -and my Kentucky relatives all had outhouses - I was always worried about spiders biting my butt!

    My wife, Zazu put up a bunch of movies, most of which we have seen together, holding hands and eating popcorn.

    I will just put up a couple that affected my belief system:

    Inherit the Wind: About the creation versus evolution, Scopes trial.

    The Seventh Seel by Igmar Bergman: The application of Revelation to the bubonic plague in Europe.

    The Virgin Spring by Igmar Bergman: when a religious man faces great evil.

    The song, I think it was in West Side Story: It Ain't Necessarily So (the things that your liable to read in the Bible, etc.)

    2. CASABLANCA (1942)

    3. THE GODFATHER (1972)

    4. GONE WITH THE WIND (1939)

    5. SCHINDLER'S LIST (1993)

    6. THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939)

    7. THE GRADUATE (1967)

    8. RAGING BULL (1980)
