"K" is killin'
« Reply #1800 on: May 13, 2006, 01:58:06 pm »
From the short story, Jack recounts for Ennis his father's crazy rage when he was only three or four years old:

"Christ, he licked the stuffin' out a me, knocked me down on the bathroom floor, whipped me with his belt.  I thought he was killin' me."

Annie Proulx ends her "-ing" words as "-in".  I've added an apostrophe to her "stuffin" and her "killin".

Fort Macleod, Alberta, was where the apartment over the laundromat was located where scenes of Ennis and his family were shot.

From the short story:

"He called Jack's number in Childress, something he had done only once before when Alma divorced him and Jack had misunderstood the reason for the call, had driven twelve hundred miles north for nothing."

From the story: If he does not force his attention on it, it might stoke the day, rewarm that old, cold time on the mountain when they owned the world and nothing seemed wrong.

That line just gets to me every time.

"P" is for pub

The first time Ennis and Jack meet, after introducing themselves, they go straight to a bar, or pub as us Brits call it.

Good one, Front, I have been researching for our Brokie meeting in Alberta, and I have only just found out it is pronounced "Mac-cloud". I now know better 'cause I had been pronouncing it as "Mac-loud"!  Thanx!

Becky, Canadians are just very creative with their spellings sometimes.

"Q" is quick-tempered

During the Fourth of July celebration, Ennis' quick-tempered disposition surfaced when he took offense to the ol' bikers' coarse remarks.

Jack whistled along to the song playing on the radio; in this case, "King of the Road."

Ennis to Jack:  "What's the point in ridin' some piece of stock for eight seconds?"
