Perfect Timing

Perfect Timing.....very seldom in our busy hectic lives do we experience perfect timing.

It is always perfect timing when hubby says to me that he is taking Chloe outside to play and one of my favorite "old" movies is next up according to the TV Guide.

I just get all giddy....you know me...I love me some 70's and 80's...if it's "old' its for me. Loverboy....Patrick Dempsey....even then...he was so cute. Extra Anchovies.
Hey You Guuuuyyyyssss !!! Does it get any better than The Goonies?
I am a proclaimed cheese-ball....yes I love musicals...Grease is my FAVORITE..... Yes I call Grease a musical...don't you ?
Dirty Dancing...this movie makes me so happy. I remember the first time I saw it being completely shocked at the grinding.....which these days is pretty "mild" by comparison.
Staying Alive....I am the only person I know who loves this movie....once again..dancing...music..I am a happy girl.
Classic 80's flick....anything boys can do ..... girls can do better.
This is just plain ole bubblegum fun.....dancing....love...teenage angst.....Perfect !!
Cocoon...I mostly like to watch this one because it reminds of being in my childhood home...Mom running around cleaning on a Saturday afternoon and me in the den watching Cocoon...it came on cable all the time.
I personally don't like this movie too much...once again the feelings it evokes are comforting...it reminds of my brother when he was little....I would watch this with him....he loved it so much. So when I catch it on....I do like to watch and remember our favorite parts .... like when Medussa loses her head....Ewww !

Lucas....once again....just typical high school fun. Love it.
Chances Are...this was on just the other day....I watched it and Tivo'd it so I can watch it over and over.....I loved Robert Downey Jr. in the 80's.
Once again...Patrick Dempsey....the geek gets the girl...geek loses girl.....geek gets cool ...gets girl back.
What "old" movies make you wish you could have the TV all to yourself for a couple of hours??
have a happy day
Pin It!
