I remember BEGGING my mom to let me watch Dirty Dancing!  The answer was always NO!!  When I reached that age of maturity and got to watch it for the first time, I was in LOVE!!!  Ghost was also one of the first movies that David and I bought on dvd.  We watched that movie so many times when we lived in England without cable.  Patrick Swayze is a role model for Hollywood actors.  He stayed out of the lime light and worshiped the ground that his wife, of 30+ years, walked on.  He was a  true gentleman.  Patrick Swayze, you will truly be missed!!  Thank you for your movies!

  1. Oh yes, I remember when Dirty Dancing was "not for kids". And that made me want to see it even more! It seemed like everyone else got to watch it. Except us =)

    He seemed like a good man. It's a shame he passed away so young.

  2. I can't believe he's gone...I definitely thought he would have more time. He is a legacy and a great role model...

  3. I didn't see it when it first came out for some reason but years later my former sil told me you haaavvvve to watch this! So I did and they were right I know I've seen it a bizzillion times since. He wasn't the greatest actor but who cares lol.Unfortunately there is no cure for pancreatic cancer, lets hope he made more ppl aware of this horrible cancer....Jo

  4. Oh I know! This is so sad...yesterday at the doctor's office they were playing the entire Dirty Dancing soundtrack and everyone was just so upset!

  5. I'm pretty sure I was 9 or 10 when I saw Dirty Dancing and one of my friends came over to watch with my mom and me (her mom knew, but we were not allowed to tell her dad) and I have been in love ever since. The Barbara Walters special was so good last night, but did make me cry like a baby. It is really sad that such wonderful people die too soon (my dad included).

  6. Haha, I didn't get to see it either when it was first out. I don't think I was able to see it until I was 10 or 11! Dirty dancing will never be the same!


Thanks for stopping by!!!
