      I may have to rent this this summer from our local Family video. Such a good movie and book. Thanks.

I had so many thoughts about your blog post, the book, and the movie after I read your post on Wednesday. Now I'm not sure I remember any of them. :my_confused:

I have read the book multiple times and like it a lot. I've only seen the movie once or twice, but I think I remember being a little underwhelmed. For example, when C. Thomas Howell says the line, "You ain't a'woofin' " it's pretty obvious he had no idea what it meant. Now that I know about the longer version on DVD, I may have to check that out!

I also remember being surprised (when I reread the book as an adult) that I had missed an important point when I read it as a teenager. I totally missed the point about Sodapop's girlfriend having to go stay with her grandparents. I wasn't some sheltered innocent, but I completely missed that they were saying that she was pregnant. Oops! 

I guess I remembered a few of my thoughts after all! Thanks for the stroll down memory lane. :my_smile:

      they'll miss their flight again since they decided to have a full 3 course meal at the airport instead of having snacks by their gate. They'll complain about the mistreat of their animals even though there wasn't any and the only abuse going on is art and Ryann neglecting the cats. they'll get to there new state and put out a asap emergency fund for a Uber because there family members car broke down or something. then they bitch and wine about all the problems and inconveniences at the family members house or there new place.

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.
