All Around AltO...and more
By Betty Rardin
Well, January was more spring-
like than winter, makes me wonder
what February has in store. Guess
we'll find out soon enough. I hope
everyone is pretty much on the mend
by now from the flu.
My deepest condolences to the
family of Mrs. Eunice Black in the
sad loss of their precious mother
(and grandmother). She was a lovely,
Christian lady and will be sorely
missed by many folks in her church
and in our community. She was an
inspiration to everyone who knew

Lacy is retired from the DPS Texas
Highway Patrol, and from them he

to be leaving Texas.
There must have been a lot of
folks staying in on Sunday after-
noon with Super Bowl Parties, 'cause
there was no one out on the streets,
or highways! I know one family that
had a nice weekend together. Cor-
rine and Denver Moore had the
Pittman family with them. Grand-
son John Pittman celebrated his
18th birthday over the weekend with
the Moores, along with his mother,
Sherry, and sister Cindy and brother
Michael. The Pittmans live in
Longview. Joining the family gath-
ering were Jim and Karen Moore of
I'm going to get out on my soapbox
here about a movie. I don't think
I've ever done this before but I can't
keep quiet about this. It was adver-
tised before Christmas as a great
kid's film. The name of the film is,
"All Dogs Go To Heaven* and I think
it was the worst "kid's" movie I have
ever seen. Now, I know a Btory has
to have conflict and good guys and
bad guys. This story was so full of
scary stuff, and even the "good guy",
Charlie, a dog makes leering faces
through most of the picture. One
part that was supposed to be funny
was a huge, lime green alligator
that zoomed around like he was on
some kind of drug trip, with garish
colors. Even part of the script was
stolen from Disney stories. A little
orphan girl who was kidnapped and
wanted most of all to be
adopted...this stolen from Disney's
"the Rescuers." Then toward the
end, a scene where dogs set offhowls
to senda message...that was donein
"1,001 Dalma^ans." I am just glad
that I did not take Ashley to see this
movie last Christmas. A three or
four year-old child would be scared
to death at the visuals in this movie.
We saw "Prancer" and it was
wonderful...sweet, funny, sad and
with a message of love and compas-
sion. That, to me, is what a children's
movie should be. End of soapbox.
P.S. "Steel Magnolias" was very
