Re: The Domestic CAT: Feline at its finest!

Dear Garbomaniac, Thank you for coming to my defense when I wrote about my cat dying and me posting it to a thread designed exclusively for dogs and their owners. I sincerely appreciate your efforts. I'm sure that you can understand why I can no longer post to this forum in good conscience. The mere...

Re: To Dream of Dogs

" Methinks thou dost protest too much " Look at all the verbiage you used in defense of your own sanctimonious ramblings. I'll even allow that a certain small amount of your diatribe is valid. [Due to violations of the Code of Conduct for the Silver Screen Oasis this message has been edite...

Re: To Dream of Dogs

You're right of course Klondike, How could I have committed the unpardonable sin of not reading your mission statement of October, 2008? I didn't mean to soil your hallowed halls with pawprints that don't say "a canine walked her"? I should have remembered that you're never wrong? I deserv...

Re: To Dream of Dogs

I know this is called "To Dream of Dogs" but I submit that any animal you make a pet and bestow your love on is equally as important to its owner as the dog is to its owner. Case in point, About 6 or 7 weeks ago, I decided to adopt a second cat to be a companion to Oscar, my "Redheade...

Re: The Fighting Sullivans (1944)

Hi Moira, I did find it difficult to conceive of you believing that there was anything even remotely glorious about war. But it seems, that by implication, that if this was not a movie guaranteed to make you appreciate war's glory, then there were others that did exactly that. I suppose that it's si...

Re: The Fighting Sullivans (1944)

Dear Moira, As much as i respect you, and i do indeed, I have to take exception to one statement you made, perhaps parroting the poster announcing the movie " The Fighting Sullivans ." There is no glory to be found in war. Only the waste of human life. True, wars are sometimes fought to en...

Re: "THE LETTER" (1940)

Dear Ms Maven, If only the people holding onto their positions as "film critics" wrote as lucidly as you do about " The Letter ", I might pay a little more heed to what they have to say. I've rarely read a better review and analysis of a film than what you've proffered here. Cong...

The Yearling

Good evening all, I'm well on the far side of 50, with a lot fewer birthdays ahead of me than behind me, so I'm supposed to be a rational, mature individual. I said "supposed to be". I know that when I see something excruciatingly sad on film, I'm supposed to know that it's just that. A fi...

Re: HELP WITH A DILEMMA

Alison, Count me among those who would spend their last dollar (Euro? Pound Sterling? Franc? Mark? Yen?) on their pets. I'd probably spend money I didn't have. It's not a crime to bounce a check (cheque?) to save a life, is it? I've never written a rubber check, but if there ever comes a first time,...

Re: John Thaw arrests Lesley Ann Down

Good morning, I have to take exception to the statement that Starsky and Hutch suffered as a result of the crackdown on television violence in the 1970's. Starsky and Hutch suffered primarily from having been produced and featuring bad scripts and terrible acting. The car they drove was the most int...

Re: EYEBROWS

Hi Anne, I just noticed your signature and it brought to mind something that my father (raised as a farm boy in South Dakota) taught me. The reasons that pigs wallow in the mire, as it were, and do all they can to cover themselves with a layer of mud is that their skin is actually very sensitive and...

Re: EYEBROWS

Good morning all, Having lived most of my life in a somewhat "cosmopolitan" city, Philadelphia, I can say with a certain authority that if a woman had to commit the unpardonable sin of leaving the house in curlers (save for a prom night or wedding) she almost invariably tried to hide the o...

Re: Reunion time!

Thanks Moira, Sage words dear lady, sage words indeed. Back in high school, I had a thing for one of my buddy's younger sister. I was 16? making her 14? and i let friends convince me that she was too young for me. Fast forward to about 1984. I'm selling BMW's in NE Philly when in walks one of the mo...

Reunion time!

Good morning all, There may be a few of you (read: Those that have lost their minds) that might have wondered why I've disappeared from SSO after we waited so long for it to get itself back up and running (great job administrators!) The long and the short of it is that I was sent an invitation to ge...
