Quick Meme from the RevGalBlogPals – Reverend Mother’s Swansong

On Endings and Goodbyes (sniff):

1. Best ending of a movie/book/TV show
Movie: Dad….Wanna have a catch? (Field of Dreams)
Book: The ending to The Color Purple
TV Show: The ending of the second Bob Newhart Show – when he’s back in Chicago with Suzanne Pleshette’s character, treating the entire series in Vermont as a dream/nightmare. That man never ceases to make me laugh!

2. Worst ending of a movie/book/TV show
Movie: Any stupid Joan Crawford movie about a woman with too much power who pays with eternal loneliness
Second place: The Children’s Hour with Shirley McLain and Audrey Hepburn (blecccchhhh)
Book: Bambi’s Children (OK, so I’m a sap)
TV Show: The Sopranos (!!!!!)

3. Tell about a memorable goodbye you’ve experienced. I got a beautiful send-off my junior year in college from my church friends/prayer group in Middlebury before I left for Germany for Spring semester. I felt so incredibly loved.

4. Is it true that “all good things must come to an end”? No – most good things are eternal.

5. “Everything I ever let go of has claw marks on it.” –Anne Lamott
Discuss.Bonus: “It isn’t over until the fat lady sings.” I’ve never loved this expression. So propose an alternative: “It isn’t over until the fat lady dates the great guy or the great gal if you swing that way….”

Wife of one, mother of six, gram of five (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!
