Fiddle dee dee

I am totally caught up with watching Gone with the Wind.  It's on TMC and there are no commercial interruptions.  I haven't seen it in a very long time and I'm just engrossed! I've got a million things that I want to share, post, talk about, link to and blab on - but I'm totally head over heels in love with this movie.

So I'm not even going to pretend to write a blog post on something else :)

...but I have to say - can you imagine wearing all of those giant petticoats and hoops.  Goodness!

I hope you have a delightful day.

Last summer I read the book, having never before done so. It was fabulous - - - even better than the movie, if you can imagine that!

In the book she has several children that I don't remember being in the movie - - - so since you just watched it, you can answer my question!!!

Did she have a little boy, Wade, by Charlie? And a little girl (I can't remember the name) by Frank Kennedy? She sure did in the book - - -

All I remember from the movie was Bonnie Blue by Rett.

Keetha, she just had Bonnie Blue in the movie. I need to dig out my book and actually read it!

I love that movie.

Do you remember when Carol Burnett spoofed Gone with the Wind and she sat down in her hoop skirt? I crack up when I think about that hoop way up in the air and her long bloomers.

It has been years since I've watched GWTW.

I haven't seen GWTW in so long. I should look to see if I can catch it on TMC still.

I've worn petticoats and hoopskirts. It's pretty easy to maneuver once you get the hang of it. The only problem is trying to drive a car in a hoopskirt - pretty much impossible. when I do a historical gig I usually drive in my bloomers (worn over modern undergarments) my husband still jokes with me and calls me "lewd." :)
