    Peter Pan quote

    Ah, Mary Martin, the most famous child of my hometown. Although, reading up on her this morning, perhaps it would be more accurate to say she was the most infamous (Mary Virginia, you scamp!). She was, however, given a run for the money by (forced to resign) Speaker of the House, Jim Wright.

    I come from good stock!

      im6,
      I didn’t know she was a scamp. That is fun to know. Okay, you should have posted the whole story of Mary and Jim. Now I’ll have to look it up!

      Larry Hagman of the Dallas TV series was her son. There’s a statue of her in the Peter Pan costume in her home town of Weatherford Texas.

        I actually knew he was her son. I figured he looked like his dad. I remember her also in South Pacific.

    The TV presentation in the 1950s was the highlight of that year for my sister and I. When I was about five my mother took me to see the Disney movie version at the old Roxy theater in Manhatten. Those were the days when you bought reserved seats for a movie and were escorted to your seat by ushers. There was also a live show before the movie. Those wee the days.

      Bob,
      I remember watching it the first time and also whenever it was repeated.

      Our movie theater had a stage, and my mother remembered there were acts when she was a kid, and they used to give away dishes. I don’t remember ever going at night but only matinees. It was just a small time move theater so no ushers.

        The Roxy and the Radio City Music Hall were the only movie theaters in NY that had live shows and reserved seats. In 1958 my mother took me downtown Dallas to see “The Ten Commandments” at the Palace Theater. We got dressed up and had reserved seats and the movie had an intermission.

        Bob,
        My friends and I went into Boston to see Cleopatra. It was at the most wonderful movie theater with side boxes, lot of velvet curtains and the most beautiful ladies’ room I’d ever seen. That movie theater is now The Wang and it is live theater.

      When I was a kid, it all looked so magical to me. When I grew older and knew about the wires, it still looked magical to me.

      Gnu,
      I really enjoyed this reel. I want the mechanic who can check and fix anything in the motor. It was great where the luggage went, so roomy.

      I enjoyed the travel, the vacation through England. I found the houses so different from place to place. The Fortas amazing and could even go through water and climb mountains.

      I’d buy a ford just from this .

    minicapt,
    I want one of those. I’ll take a smaller one for 1-2 people. I would travel all the way down Latin American to Patagonia then from Morocco to West Africa.

    I have a good life, but sometimes I wish I had money enough to take an amazing trip and to bring some friends along.
