My Six Degrees of Separation?

*** Six degrees of separation (also referred to as the "Human Web") refers to the idea that, if a person is one step away from each person they know and two steps away from each person who is known by and on and on......

I love this movie so much I named
one of my cats after the main character!

Imogene Threadgoode
(but, we call her Idgie, just like in the movie)

At the opening of the movie, little Miss Idgie climbs a tree,
because she does not want to wear a dress to a wedding!

Her brother, Buddy, played by actor Chris O'Donnell,
climbs the tree to console her.

Our Idgie up a tree!
(Can you see her?)

~Mr O'Donnell and children~

In 2001
 I cared for Chris O'Donnell's horse!
What a nice person he was!
Awesome family man!


Many, many movies have starred Mr. O'Donnell.
Go on, give him a Google!

Cared for his horse? How did you get that job?

Great post but you know you are going to have to write one about taking care of Chris O'Donnell's horse, we know there is a story there. Can't wait to hear it.

That is a great movie! And I spy a little cat in a tree with my little eye! =)

Donna said...

How funny! That is one of my all-time favorite movies too. I think I'm a lot like Twanda! LOL. I sure like Chris O'Donnell. He now plays a main character in NCIS Los Angeles.

How fun to find your blog! I saw you at heart 2 heart, but see that Joni is your bloggy friend too!

This show is an all time fav of mine! I actually own very few movies and this is one of them. Great name for a cat that climbs way up there like she did in the movie. I had a cat yrs ago that would climb even higher than that then moan and groan and NOT come down.

I grew up on a farm and had tons of "barn cats"...Daddy wouldn't let us bring them inside.

How I would love to live in the hills of TN with horses! Some day hubby will retire and we will have our dream farmhouse and ranch. Until then, it's the burbs for me. However, it usually works out that I am able to be sorta in the country w/o being IN the country...God is good and helps us find places where I won't go crazy! ; ) Cause, I'm a country girl.

Loved the movie, and the MAN. And lucky you for boarding his horse! I had always wished Patrick Swayze would have a need to board one of his horses in my barn :-)

Love that movie too. I see Idgie in the tree...what a pretty cat! I had to rescue our little male barn cat Olly out of a tree yesterday...guess the dogs chased him up there. I really like Chris O Donnel and it's especially nice to know that he's a wonderful family man. You don't often hear that type of compliment about an actor. I hope you have a wonderful Thursday Misha...take care. Maura
