I Love You To The Moon And Back Alice!

When I was a kid I
would sit on the arm
of my father's chair
every Saturday night
and we would
watch
Jackie Gleason
and
The Honeymooners.

Remember Jackie Gleason?
Maybe you don't-
But Jackie Gleason
was a bear of a man
that drove a city bus.
He was full
of get-rich schemes
that involved him and
Ed Norton,
the sewer worker that
lived upstairs.

His long suffering wife,
Alice,
was often the brunt of
his misplaced anger
when his plans and
dreams fell apart.
After all, he needed
SOMEONE to blame.

One of his favorite lines
he would throw out,
as he clenched his fist
and shook it at her, was
Ohhh..You're gonna get it now.
TO THE MOON, Alice.

Alice NEVER looked
scared because underneath
that tough guy exterior
beat the heart of a
pussy cat.

When our little Lulu got
old enough to talk
and interact we would
jokingly shake our fist at
her and ask...
You wanna go to
the moon, Alice?

Lulu, being very literal,
would say..
My name is NOT Alice
and I'm NOT going to the moon.

Ria didn't think it was too funny
either....
but by the time
 SweetCheeks came
along the dialogue had changed a
bit...here...see for yourself..

  2. I agree with Karen in the comment above! A
    production company to film your stories! So
    cute! Who could write those lines from the
    heart! Have a great weekend!

  5. Look like she's quite the competitor. You might as well give up and let her win because she's going to out-love you no matter what! *LOL*

  6. Very cute. She is so adorable. I remember the honeymooners. And I loved Jackie Gleason. My husband and I almost bought a house that he used to live in here in Miami Beach. It was awesome but it just need too much work.

  7. I loved the last line.. "Well YOU should have moved it!" Beneath all the love and sugar and stuff, she is ALWAYS right in a -not-so-really-sweet kind of way.

  8. Oh what a precious video and something to enjoy for a whole lifetime, Diana! Sweet Cheeks is so beautiful AND so sweet! She sure loves her Nana!

    I love the Jackie Gleason Show--he was amazing and so was Alice. We used to watch it every week when I was a kid.

    I hope you're having a beautiful weekend.
