I Love Lucy

  In 5 more days I know a little girl who is going to be 2 years old.  Born July 1st, 2010 to two very proud parents, and two beautiful sisters.  Each day for the next four days Bearly Memories will do a post for this darling little girl.  Could not be more proud. You see…her name is LUCY !!!!! She is my Granddaughter… 


   Now here is a classic for the memory box.  “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee.  Published in 1960 and film released in 1963.  Takes place in a fictional town of Maycomb, AL in Depression Era South.  The story involves some very serious issues regarding rape and racial inequality.  Atticus Finch a widowed small town lawyer, with two children, Jem, his son, and six year old daughter Scout.  Atticus, who is of high moral character is defending a black man accused of raping a white woman. 

 Other significant characters are Boo Radley, Bob and Mayella Ewell, and Dill who is the friend who comes to visit every summer.  This is a true American Classic which in 1962 was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. 

This is a very good movie to watch with the kids and explain what life was like in the South during the depression.  Wow, does this bring back memories.

Oh, how could we ever forget this great sitcom?  One of my all-time favorites…”Leave it to Beaver” played by Jerry Mathers.

Theodore “Beaver” Cleaver!

With Ward and June Cleaver as the Beaver’s parents played by Hugh Beaumont and Barbara Billingsly, or Wally, the Beaver’s older brother, played by Tony Dow…all in Mayfield, USA.

Who could forget some of those wonderful characters…Eddie Haskell, ( Oh how nice you look today Mrs. Cleaver, is that a new dress? ) or Lumpy Rutherford, two of Wally’s friends.  Or how about the Beaver’s buddies; Larry, Gilbert and Whitey (always getting the Beaver in trouble).  Or the teacher Miss Landers.  Does this bring back a few memories.

The show produced 234 episodes from 1957-1963.  The show placed on Time Magazine’s 2007 list of 100 best TV shows of All-Time. WOW…

Memories do matter…they should last a lifetime…I know this show will be remembered…

 Remember this classic from way back in 1994…

“Shawshank Redemption”

Andy Dufresne played by Tim Robbins.  The banker who was convicted of killing his wife and her lover and sent to Shawshank Prison where he was fortunate to meet some very interesting characters. 

Remember “Red” played by Morgan Freeman, or “Brooks” the prison librarian.  How about “Hadley” the mean spirited guard who ultimately turned on the evil Warden Norton.

Great movie with even a greater ending.  Brings back lots of memories…This one will be a classic that I will store in my memory keepsake box and someday share this with my grandchildren or maybe even great grandkids.
