Star Wars: Episode IV New Hope (1977) – I did not see this movie when it was first released, but I feel in love with it before it was redux. But, I did enjoy having the opportunity to see it in a movie theater upon its re-release in 1997. Thanks so much Mr. Lucas.
It was just innovative. That is what I loved about it. It was a cool story and had unlimited possibilities and the underdogs won. This was the beginning of a life long love of any and all things Star Wars.
Best Movie Quote: “May the force be with you.” – That’s to easy.

“Who put the bop in the bop shi bop shi bop? Who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong?” – Classic lyrics right there.
How to Eat Fried Worms (1973) – It was original published in 1973 by Thomas Rockwell. Has been reprint several times since then and been turned into a movie. It is a story about a 10 year old named Billy who made a bet with a neighborhood bully. He had to eat 15 worms in 15 days. If he was able to complete this feat, he would win the admiration of his peers and money to buy a brand new bike.
Every year, my elementary school would have a book fair and I was able to buy 20 books at time. It was my favorite day of the year. I got this book at one of those book fairs and have read it at least once a year since.
My mom – And, not just because it’s Mother’s Day. My mom is a great lady and she taught me how to love life and be grateful for all my blessings.
I can’t wait to read other people’s first. Thanks to Alex Cavannaugh for a making my Monday better.
