JAWS

Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water…

I’m going to go with some friends to go see “Jaws” at the Majestic Theatre on January 26th. And I can’t wait.

It’s going to be the first time that I’ve ever seen a movie and an symphony playing at the same time. What a movie to have my first experience with.

Hopefully this will be the first of many more to see.

I remember the first time I saw this movie. It was at the Genesee Valley Theaters in my hometown of Flint. I went with my mom, sister, my mom’s cousin and her two daughters. We all sat in the same row and no one wanted to sit next to the wall that had a giant curtain covering it. I think we were all afraid something was going to pop out from behind the curtain.

I remember us being glued to the screen just watching what was going to happen. I think one of us jumped when the head popped out from the sunken boat. Popcorn went flying in the air.

It’s one of my favorite memories from my youth. Now I get to relive it with some great friends and in a great place like the Majestic. Hopefully this time, no popcorn will be going flying in the air.

2017 is coming to and end and the videos of the entertainers, leaders and icons that we lost this year are coming out.

Here are a few of the recent ones we have lost.

Sharknado

Yesterday, I was in heaven watching the Sharknado marathon on the SyFy channel. It was a great way to relax on a hot day in South Texas (it was 101 degrees.)

They showed all five films:

I can only hope that there will be a Sharknado 6!

Song of the Day

“More Than A Woman” (1977) by The Bee Gees.

“More Than a Woman” is a song by the Bee Gees, written by Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb for the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever.

The soundtrack includes two versions — one by the Bee Gees and the other by Tavares. (From Wikipedia.com)

I like both versions of the song, I like The Bee Gees version better.
For your listening and sing pleasure.

More Than A Woman

By The Bee Gees

Girl, I’ve known you very well

I’ve seen you growing every day

I never really looked before

But now you take my breath away
Suddenly you’re in my life

A part of everything I do

You got me workin’ day and night

Just tryin’ to keep a hold on you
Here in your arms I found my paradise

My only chance for happiness

And if I lose you now, I think I would die

Say you’ll always be my baby

We can make it shine

We can take forever just a minute at a time
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
There are stories old and true

Of people so in love like you and me

And I can see myself

Let history repeat itself
Reflecting how I feel for you

And thinking about those people then

I know that in a thousand years

I’d fall in love with you again
This is the only way that we should fly

This is the only way to go

And if I lose your love, I know I would die

Oh say you’ll always be my baby

We can make it shine

We can take forever just a minute at a time
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
More than a woman

More than a woman to me

More than a woman

More than a woman to me
More than a woman
