Life is sweet when you're turning 16!
A teacher in a neighboring town has been injured & Miss Wilder is asked if she knows of any students that would like to temporarily replace the teacher until she's back on her feet. Miss Wilder recommends Laura After answering a few questions, Laura gets the job. Miss Wilder tells Laura that Almanzo will drive her to and from the neighboring town. Laura is THRILLED!(not only is she finally a teacher, but the man she has a special place in her heart for will be driving her.) After Laura's first week of teaching, when Almanzo comes to pick her up ,he remarks that she looks older. She casually says that she's a week older ,but is excited that he noticed that she's not really the "little girl" he's come to know.
The church social is coming up & Almanzo wants to ask Laura. But he checks with Charles to see if it's okay. Charles says to ask Laura. She says she'll think about it(rather than giving him an outright "yes") Later that week, Almanzo decides to pay Laura a visit, but is unprepared when he sees a student with his arms around Laura's waist .Thinking the worst, Almanzo punches the kid. Laura accuses Almanzo of having his mind in the gutter & tells him that the student is studying to be a doctor.
That Friday, Charles picks Laura up & says Almanzo told him about what happened. He & Laura talk about jealousy & Laura wonders if Almanzo is jealous of the young man he punched just like she was of a young woman who'd also had eyes for Almanzo. Laura admits that she loves Almanzo & is curious to know if he feels the same about her.
That night at the church social, Laura looks around & can't find Almanzo (even though Charles said that Almanzo'd be taking his sister.) When she does find him, he apologizes for his actions a couple of days ago. They talk and spend a tender moment together. He gives her a shawl as a birthday gift and they go out and dance.
Touched by Love (1980)
This movie was WONDERFUL!
I first saw this movie as an 11 year old. And I absolutely loved it! It's one of those movies that you just can't forget. I saw it again on cable late one night last year but it was too late to tape it. So I'm thinking seriously of buying the tape. Deborah Raffin did a fabulous job as the compassionate caretaker Lena Canada. Diane Lane also did an excellent job playing Karen,the handicapped teenager. If you have a chance & it's in a videotape store, see it!
Sha Na Na (1977)
I LOVED it!
I started watching this show as a kid . Bowzer was my all-time favorite with his wacky attitude, and Johnny was cute:-) The 10 guys were really wonderful with all their songs & that lady that heckled the guys from her window was pretty funny.Soupy Sales starred on the show starting in Season 3 as both Officer Fussy & "Armond Fussy Director of Greaser Hall" (Sadly in 1988 Dave "Chico" Ryan passed away."Dirty"Dan McBride joined Chico in 2009. Denny passed away in 2015 R.I.P Chico Danny & Denny. )
Their guests ranged from singers that sang in the 50s (like the Crystals) to comedians (like Henny Youngman & Billy Crystal) & even a few country singers (like Barbara Mandrell.Bowzer guest starred on her show some time later.) Grease for peace!
