         I find most Brokies never lose the opportunity to use the lingo from the film and book as often as
it presents itself.. I find myself using" sure enough "a lot.. and" very good."..They are easy to use in everyday language.

And "You bet!"  :D

LOL Loneleeb3 and ineedcrayons  :D

My cousin did say that "speaking in tongues" was part of the Pentacostal religion, and that she could do it, but her sister could not. That's as far as we got with the conversation. However, what Loneleeb3 said about the Pentacostal religion is also what I have read about it. To add, after I asked my cousin about the Pentacost I wanted to say- "My folks, they was Methodist!" :)


For how long? As long as we can ride it; ain't no reins on this one.

        My folks was Christian before it was POLITICALLY CORRECT.  They were Baptists...Now I think you have to be a Republican to be a real Christian.. I am neither.  My husbands family were however Pentacostal, and his paternal grandfather was a minister, as are many members of their family...But" i tell you what"...Lee is pretty much right on about it..I cant abide those ideas of theirs. and neither can my husband...I have no natural
distaste for many of the religions..but some of the things they do are a bit backward and foolish...Like not believing in doctors, and such...His grandfather sat and let himself die, rather than go to a doctor for a skin cancer, he could have had removed...They believe the husband is the law in the home..which explains a lot of
Jacks moms attitude in  allowing him to be treated the way he was..It goes on, "well i wont " ...Im done with my rant... sorry...I always say dont get me started.....Im going back into hiding from the rocks i may get
thrown in my direction.. but its my opinion and i stand by it/  I have to say though...it is mostly the dogma
that i cant abide, not the part about the Pentacost, per se

If this is too hot a topic,, mod can feel free to deleate it..

Here's a way-out one....

I find myself moving between office locations, at times, in that posture Ennis showed when he came home to Alma and the two babies screaming. when he entered the kids' room, he had a semi bent demeanor, shuffle, yet purposed movement with eyes on target. everytime I seem to strike this movement, his essence hits me again.

And do you say "Whoop whoop whoop!" at the same time?  That would really help you feel Ennisian.  :)

Hi folks!

I call my  black cat Jack whenever I stroke his furry belly...

I murmured "you are worse than Bobby when it comes to losin´ stuff" when my son asked me where his Lego dragon was...he answered :"redst du scho wieda englisch??"

When  one of the kids interrupts us in the bedroom I might mumble "there ain´t never enough time, never enough.."...

I use many hunh´s...

And I often find myself repeating some line like " you pair of deuces lookin´for work......", just speaking to myself...mad, huh?

Tonite, my husband (who has never seen the movie) and I were talking while he was cooking and I was ...surfin the Internet! He was telling me about his struggles to repair our hot tub and said that he used a bicycle tire patch to repair a flexible hose. I interjected "chewing gum and balin wire" with a Texas accent. He looked at me...and I knew what was coming. "Is that a line from your movie?" he asked. I had to admit it was and said, "Oh God you are on to me!"

After we laughed about it, I mentioned that it was a classic Larry McMurtry line and he was astounded to learn that the macho Larry McMurtry would participate in the project...and not only that, win the Academy Award for it! I will win the guy over yet!!
