"R" is Randy

Randy Quaid plays Joe Aguirre in Brokeback Mountain.

=comment=
I know there is already a randy but that is a different type of randy, if you get my drift! ;)

=compliment=
Congratulations, Becky, for a well-played "R" and for being "the first" [later edited to "the second"] Player to post a word demonstrating the rules clarification regarding proper vs. common nouns.

Players, under the rules clarification noted above, Randy (as in Quaid) and randy (as in lustful) are two separate words. Keep this in mind when posting.

=correction= Fran
Fran erred stating that Beckala was the 1st -- not!  Memento was the first player to use the =clarification= rule of proper vs. common words with same spelling.  Memento used it last week on April 30th in reply# 1229 with the lowercase answer word "john".  Again, let's give hearty beanz congratz to Mems and take it away from Becks.  She'll get over it; she's young.  And, a cowboy hats off to Wills for observing and reporting all this.  :D
Workin' overtime,

=reply= Will
Come on, let's give credit to Becky for being second. I've edited my =compliment= above to reflect same.  What would this ABCs game be like without your watchful eyes, Will? The thought makes me shudder.

Heath's wrist tattoo is very visible during the close-up shot of Ennis hugging Jack during the confrontation scene.

Ennis worked with sheep and cows--animals with udders.

"W" is what

After returning from BBM and just splitting from Jack, as he was emotionally wrecked and dry heaving, Ennis yelled out to a man passing by: "What the f*ck are U lookin' at?"

Jack's life was xtinguished too early, at 39 years of age.   :(
I just want to celebrate another day of living.

Ennis to Jack:  "Texas? Sure, and maybe you'll convince Alma to let you and Lureen adopt my girls, and then we could all live together, herding sheep...."

John Twist seems to be a zombie; his reactions are emotionally detached and almost dead.   :(
