ever tried 'law abiding citizen' or 'Ray'?
I don't know what you've watched so far -probably a long list-
My absolute favorite movie is 'Dances with wolves', so if you haven't watched it, gogogogo!
'One flew over the cuckoo's nest' is a real classic and really really funny.
Please write a short story using these Song Titles by Paul Anka?
Dodge City, Kansas
These are entries in the diary of Miss Sunshine MacGillicutty, new grilfriend of U.S.Marshal Matt Dillon.

You know, after Del died (her husband) I never thought I'd meet another man. I finally decided to leave Virginia and come out West. I'd heard of Dodge City, so I thought I'd stay a while and see if it lived up to it's reputation. I wasn't here for more than 5 minutes before I met the U.S. Marshal.....Matt Dillon. Oh, Diary, just writing his name makes me tingle and blush! Matt is everything I ever dreamed of....he is outrageous! We have a CRAZY LOVE that is the dearest thing this side of Heaven! There is only one blight on the horizon....Miss Kitty Russell, his former girlfriend. I realize they had been together a long time, but my oh my.....what a pain she is. She refuses to try and pick up the pieces and move one. Just the other day I overheard her talking to Matt. They didn't know I could hear them. Apparently Matt ran into her at the General Store....I heard her tell him:" I MISS YOU SO. Won't you please come to your senses and leave that idiot from Virginia?" I was so angry, I nearly said something. But guess what? Matt then said:" Sunshine is not an idiot....true she is a bit different.....OKAY! OKAY! She's more than a bit different........but she's my gal and I love her." Oh Diary dearest, he is my >>>hero!<<<

Today I saw the strangest sight. I was down by the stables in Dodge and noticed Miss Kitty way off in the corner of the stable talking to one of the horses. I sneeked up and hid behind some hay . She took a gulp from that bottle of Randy Scouse Git Rotgut that she always keeps in her purse, and then fixed her drunken gaze on a horse :"Oh you great big stallion....PUT YOUR HEAD ON MY SHOULDER. IT'S TIME TO CRY and I need some comforting." Poor Kitty....she appears to prefer equine company to that of humans......must be the result of all that alcohol she has been consuming.....I think her brain is beginning to fizzle. Cuckoo. Cuckoo.

Tonight Matt and I are going to the church dance. I have been working all day on my skirt.....I used the material I bought last week from the traveling salesman...remember that silly fellow? Matt gave him the nickname LONELY BOY because of his big, sad brown eyes. I have my own nickname for Matt...
but I dare NOT put it in ink.....besides , I just finished my prayer group meeting and I'd feel a bit naughty !!
Just then Matt walked through the front door....."Hi, SunnyMac.........excited about the dance tonight? (Sunshine had just taken a bite of a peanut butter sandwich.) She wiped her face on her sleeve and flew into his arms!!
Sunshine:"Oh, MattBaby....you are my deff tin ey!!" (There was peanut butter on the roof of her mouth and she had trouble pronouncing the word properly)
Matt smiled as he hugged her tightly....."I'm your WHAT?"
Sunshine let go of him and walked over to the kitchen. She stuck her lips up to the pump and got a mouthful of water.
Sunshine:" Ahhhhh...that's better!" Matt, always surprised by her antics, started laughing. Sunshine took a running leap and threw herself in his arms, wrapping her legs around his waist........."I said.....YOU ARE MY DESTINY." Matt walked into the bedroom with her still clinging to him. They fell on the bed in one big heap!
They were an hour late to the dance.
