Paint less - yikes. Which cord pulls the parachute?

Watched "South Pacific," the movie on old VHS tape - more than twenty year old VHS tape. One of my favorite musicals - I think it is the best. Need to buy DVD. Adding CD to my iPod tonight.

"Once you have found her, never let her go...."

What are your favorite musicals?

This has a bit of Sue palm and I am not sure of the rest.

In my old life, when I was like Polly Anna and in denial a lot, I used to really like The Sound of Music and South Pacific.

In this life, where I have become a more realistic cynic, I can't watch musicals like that and remain patient for such sweetness.

I guess I don't do that kind of escapism well anymore and I don't believe in that sort of romance anymore.

Nor do I like "True Grit" stories.
