Why aren't there more posts here?????

If you judge the BBM women's popularity by number of posts, then Alma is less popular than Lureen, Alma Jr. -- or even LaShawn!  :o  And she's neck-and-neck with Cassie (though this post will put Alma ahead). Of course, the most popular woman by far, gauging by post numbers, is Jack's mom.

But maybe post numbers can be deceiving. There are more posts in the I LOVE Everything Ennis thread than there are in the I LOVE Everything Jack thread. Yet it's my impression that there actually are more people who love everything Jack.

Thanks for helping Alma pull ahead of Cassie, Katherine! We've got a mares' race goin here I guess. Another thing I love about Alma is how she says, "Sure enough" when Ennis introduces her to Jack. Her "sure enough" is undoubtedly the precursor to "Yeah, right" the famous double positive that makes a negative. She's just been handed a sucker-punch by those two guys, her supposed mate and his best friend, and yet she has the resilience to deliver a come-back line.

I just looked up "alma mater" in the dictionary, and it means, fostering mother.

I love Alma for separating from Ennis!

This way Ennis can think more about Jack, and about his own life as maybe a gay man?

Hugs!

        I loved Alma most for her bootstraps approach to her life.  After seeing that it wouldnt be as
she had hoped.  Neither financially or lovingly.  She decided to make a new try, and try for something
that would at least be comfortable and financially secure, both for herself, and her children....



     Beautiful mind

She is not decent?

I just found a real-life Alma! The actress Isabell Jewell was born in Shoshoni, Wyoming, one of the litte towns Ang Lee visited during his tour to get the flavor of the site. Doesn't she look a lot like Alma, when you strip out the makeup?

Yes! If you'd posted this on the GTPPOT thread, we'd guess it's Michelle Williams in old-timey makeup and hair.
