TBT - 80's Fantasy Movies

I am going to start doing a Throwback Thursday post. The topics will be random but should be fun. If you like these posts please let me know in the comments and I will keep doing them! =)

My all time favorite 80's fantasy flick is and always will be:

The Dark Crystal
The Podling dance is my favorite part of the movie. I have watched this flick so many times I can't even count. Like, falling asleep watching it every night kind of thing. I have several versions of it. VHS, DVD, Bluray, Collectors Editions. Huge fan of this movie. Huge fan. Jim Henson, God Bless that man and how he inspired me from very early on in my life.

Next up: 

Legend

Young (non crazy) Tom Cruise, unicorns, and an awesome love story. What's not to love, right? And the soundtrack is amazing!! Tangerine Dream, helllllooooo!!!

Last, but not least:

The Princess Bride
Not loving this movie is simply "inconceivable". Buttercup, Wesley, giants, sea monsters and even Fred Savage. (I had a massive Fred Savage crush in the 80's...thanks Wonder Years).

Obviously, I was a fantasy lover even in my early days. There are plenty of other 80's flicks that I love, but those will come in a different TBT 80's flick post. So tell me, what was your favorite 80's fantasy flick?

Happy TBT

  1. The Last Unicorn, hands down. It didn't help that I owned the Kenny Loggins CD with the song on it, and it was the best thing ever. It doesn't even matter that it came out five years before I was born.

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

Introducing a New Cat into a Household

Fostering the Drive

To say I have been busy is an understatement. I have a good excuse. Let me show you:




I have been fostering bottle baby kittens.

I struggled with many things in my life except this. Other than motherhood (which shocked me) I took to fostering right away. Long ago I wanted to travel the world, be a successful writer, and get rich off my crafty etsy side. I dabbled in some of those and quickly realized that I wasn't good at them. I never seemed to have the dedication or the drive to push me further. The will to keep going forward even on the hardest days. But, saving neonate kittens clicked with me. My soul stopped wandering. I no longer search for the legacy I will leave behind. I understand now that saving animals, especially cats has always been my calling.

I still have a long way to go in my journey but I will advocate for these little souls. I will fight to help them have the best start in life and I will learn everything I can as a feline behaviorist to campaign for the rights…
