With all the negative thoughts and hate that seem to infect this place I thought I’d jump in a pile of “positive” and see if any of it cyber splashes onto the non-existent walls around here.

I speak, of course, about the movie “A Christmas Story.” Now some of us can say “OH SURE! I was around when it first came out.” Others are reduced to lowering their heads and mumbling (almost apologetically) something about re-runs.

I’m not sure if the casting could have been improved.

If my Father had held any kind of steady job I can see myself growing up like Ralph. We certainly had many cars like this family. And we seem to specialize in bald tires.

With 4 of us around the table, plus Dad, plus a dog or two, plus the occasional stray cat, I’m not sure Mom ever got to eat at all!

The off-camera narration is impeccable.

And YES------  We did get BB guns as presents. And YES------------ One of us did get shot in the eye.

For all you youngsters------ YES------ That’s how life was in the 50’s. (well except for the lamp maybe. But I’m sure Dad would have approved.)

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL !!!!

Is that the brown eye?  Just kidding, double boobie.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

I don't think the thread starter got shot in the eye with a BB - if he did, his screen name would not be (0)(0), but rather (0)(-). I'm thinking it was his leetle seeester and he did it on purpose because she wouldn't help Mom get the food on the table. Was this your school?

It was not my little Seeeter. It was my little brother. And I was the shooter because he was attacking. And which school? I went to 8? ( they all looked close to this)

WinkWell, I was partially correct.
 
Hint: On certain birthdays it is beItalicst to avoid setting yourself up for crucifixion. We do not condone 'bullies', but it always works better if people do not line themselves up for abuse. No harm or malice intended with my comments - they were not meant to be taken personally, but rather more in a general, light-hearted way.
 
Remember: If you're for sympathy, you'll find it between 'sh*t' & 'syphilis' in the dictionary....and I have no time for ANY of it.
 
For even MORE great quotes about life on the boards and everywhere else:
