Well my dear friends guess what I am watching on the movie channel. What movie did these famous words come from, “ I will love you just as I do now until I die. "

I am giving something of mine away that I love that has to do with this movie. The winner will have a choice of this or my famous Ms Ruby’s chocolate candy.

So let’s do this giveaway a little different than the usual. After everyone has a chance to guess what movie I am watching by leaving a comment then I will let all of you know what the prize is and what you need to do to win.

Why the giveaway? It is to celebrate all the kind sweet followers that leave me comments like the ones I have attached to this post. These comments are from the post about the idiot that made my life miserable at work one day. Read the funny and sincere comments that were left for me and enjoy them. Visit their wonderful sites and fall in love with them like I have done so.
Also check out my other comments left on the post before this one. They are hilarious and you need to check out their blogs as well.

Um, yes they tend to do this at the state hospital where husband works. What is it about crap and drunks/and or the mentally ill? Why would they choose to touch it, much less write with it? Lord, when can you retire?

Well Maggie... I know that your job is very thankless but I sure am glad that someone like you do it!!

Happy Holidays!

Oh my gosh, you are too funny. Seems to me as though Ms. Tatoo really deserves her Santa Baby, I bet the two of them can really stir the sh............t.LOL.

Oh my GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are so funny! And a LOT stronger than I! I dont think I would have made it through five minutes. I agree with Sissie, those two were made for each other, talk about nasty!!

All this and you are not insane yet:) Your ex mother in law mooned you???? Hilarious, now, but I'm sure not so much at the time.

You do have to be strong to work in the jail. Drunks have to be the worse. I don't think I would have the patience.

You must see a lot of weird and funny things at work. I think people who work with the public in general see alot of stupid stuff. Well better the guy and not the lady you had to "host."

OH, MAGGIE!!! how utterly nasty, but so UNsurprising. these people have such CLASS, really!
i managed a Blockbuster video for a while, and i had this weird customer who used to talk too much and try to get too personal (i think he had "problems", though i'm not sure of the nature). he rented movies EVERY SINGLE DAY. one morning, he asked me to recommend a movie, and i did, based on what i'd seen and thought he might like, given his renting history. well he apparently didn't like it.
he dropped the movie off in the slot with duct tape wrapped around it (we literally had to CUT IT OUT), and with a note inside the case that was just full of vulgarities. i had to call to tell him we wouldn't be able to rent to him again, based on his behaviour.
so he wrote us a formal apology, and came in personally to speak with me. after some consideration, i let him off the hook, with a big, fat warning. at some point while he was in the store, he used the bathroom, and then as he left, he smiled a big smile and was laughing and winking at me.
a little later, i was informed by one of my employees that we had a "problem" in the bathroom.
OMG. he had smeared it all over the walls, the door, the floor, the mirror, the taps... his feces were even on the CEILING, as he apparently splattered it everywhere he possibly could.i was told by upper management not to press charges, as he had mental problems and it would just create more issues for all of us (and a yucky court battle). the bathroom had to be barricaded until we could get a power washer in there. *shudder*
that's my story. since you were so generous with your details, i thought i'd share, too! :)

God, aren't there some weirdos in this world. My hubby is a retired firefighter. For 30 years he saw so many weird things nothing shocks him anymore. Yes, police and firefighters definetly experience life like no other profession could even imagine!

Love your blog!

Oh my! I guess it isn't funny, but pathetic. I'm sorry for that mess. Some people just don't know how to celebrate Christmas - or anything else for that matter.
I just read your post about the date. That's just why my mom decided she wasn't going to date after her divorce from my dad. I do believe there are some good guys out there though.

Since he put it there, couldn't you make him clean it? I don't think it would have bothered him much since it certainly didn't bother him to touch it the first time. Better yet, have him do it sober when all his senses are at 100%.
A big thanks to you for wearing that uniform and caring enough about us to do it.

crap and puke, it's what kept me out of nursing school. Other than that I would have been damn good! You are certainly a lot stronger than I Maggie, I would have lost it and Ms Pearl would have looked like a saint..;p

Yikes, better thee than me. Amazing that he wasn't drunk enough that he was able to write backwards. That takes concentration.
Perhaps teens with beginning alcohol problems should spend a night in drunk tank around a holiday. Bless you for the job you do.

I wish Mr. Poop and Mrs. Tattoo a wonderful life together because it's evident her marriage just went down the toilet! What a hilariously disturbing story. I love the pics you found to document it. Heeeeheeehee. So sorry ya have to put up with such nasty behavior!!!
Have a wonderful relaxing weekend void of any messages on the wall. God bless you and all you do!

Oh Maggie ~ You do live the life! I can not even believe that! I even had my hubby read it! Terrible! I hope you handed him a mop & bucket & said you can make your phone call when this dump shines like the top of the Chrystler Building :)

Thank you all for always leaving me sweet comments.

Be sure and check by in a few days to find out the name of the movie and what gift I am giving away.

I will tell you like I tell my hubby when he wants me to guess a song title or movie title: I am NOT good at this game.
Blessings, andrea

Leah the Orange said...

oh my GOOMIE, Maggie! what a WONDERFUL movie! i just saw the big anniversary box set and put it on my wish list this christmas! it could only be Gone With The Wind, of course!! :)

those were some FABULOUS comments from your adoring fans! i love that everyone has their own unique sense of humour. your blog is an absolute JOY to visit!! xo

Protege said...

Ah, I do not qualify for this give away at all, being only a new follower and living in Europe, so do not count me in dear. But what caught my eye was the picture and the quote. It speaks so much to my romantic mindset. I have no idea what movie is, but it will be fun to find out. Good luck to everyone.
Have a Lovely Christmas,

Karen said...

I loved all of these comments--and I agree, that guy was a JERK. You deserve better. And he is out there somewhere :)

The quote comes from the movie, "GONE WITH THE WIND!"

Menopausal New Mom said...

I'm going to guess Casablanca since it's one of my favorites. Great post, I enjoyed the comments and now have a new list of blogs to check out. Thanks!

Stayathomemommy said...

Oh pick me pick me!! I know this one it is Gone with the Wind. I loved reading all the comments people left they brought a smile to my face I could only imagine they did the same for you.

Me....bunny said...

Oh fiddle dee dee...hold on it's on the tip of my tongue...don't tell tell...As god is my'll come to me. Oh what the hell, Frankly my dear....I can't wait for your new giveaway...


Nezzy said...

I know, I know...pick me...hand wavin' in the air 'bout to wet myself! ANSWER: Gone With the Wind!!!

The comments a great. Isn't it good to know what a great support system we have in our blogsisters.

Have a fantastic day full of blessed comments :o)

Delena said...

It is Gone with the Wind. Loved the movie, loved the book. Nothing like a romantic movie and it is not just a chick flick. Speaking of chick flicks my big ole burly hubby loves the movie Sleepless in Seattle and Fools Rush In.
Also, now that I am babbling, we actually watch Young and Restless together almost every day......

jojo said...

Can you believe that I have never watched Gone with the Wind??? I know, there must be something wrong with me...;p

Kissed by an Angel said...

Gone with the Wind sprang to mind!! I'm not certain though!! But I have to say I don't ever remember watching it all the way through - or at all!! Please don't hate me for never watching though!!!


Sniffles and Smiles said...

Oh, I'm not sure...But you are lovely to acknowledge us all!!! We love you just as we do now...forever... BTW, I meant to tell you I think your blog looks beautiful, all decked out in its Christmas bows!!! ~Janine XO

P.S. I'm so sorry about your loss of such a talented friend!! My heart grieves for you.~J.

Anonymous said...

Good grief, I'm in menopause and without estrogen I have no recollection of anything...but is it The Notebook? Love that movie.

sissie said...

I'm guessing, Gone With The Wind. Scarlett says that about the love of Tara and her land.
You know how dramatic she was!

StitchinByTheLake said...

I do believe my daughter watches Gone With The Wind at least once a month! It really was a wonderful movie. blessings, marlene

Brynwood Needleworks said...

I'd LOVE to be sharing a cuppa hot chocolate with you right now, and hearing your stories first hand. As for that "crappy" story...Well, I would have been no help at all. See, I have this gag reflex thing...No. help. at. all. I tell you!

I finished all the jammies today!!!! Boxes shipped and now for finishing up the "local" gifts. Not the "rush" there was for the stuff that had to get north in time for Christmas Eve.

Have a wonderful evening, my dear. Hugs from your "weak stomach" friend.

I was going to say "It's a wonderful life".

I am enjoying your blog and your energy. xxx

Gone with the Wind, but I'll confess I "googled" it. LOL. Sometimes the truth gets you nowhere!.

Anyway I really enjoy readding your blog. As a former Texan I fully understand some of your stories and dilemmas.

Rhondi said...

I couldn't figure out what movie. Guess I haven't seen Gone With The Wind enough!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Ms Maggie...
That has to be Ashley and Scarlet ofcourse. Love the movie. Gone with Wind....You are just to much, you and Ms Pearl.

Thanks for stopping by. You asked how I do it? Post and work full time? I work from 5:30am until 3pm. After dinner I spend time at my computer working. Some nights my neuropathy is bad, and I can't sleep, so I prepare some of my next day things while it helps take away the pain.

So love the post. Great job sweetie.

As always, country hugs...Sherry

Junk Exchange said...

GWTW, yes.. but i think it was said by Ashley as Melanie lay dying .. as he held her glove .. i think ..


Kim said...

The quote is from "Gone With The Wind". One of my top 5 favorite movies of all time. I can watch it over and over. Scarlett is one Kick-Ass Broad!

Sea Witch said...

Gone with the Wind, Scarlett to Ashley...what she saw in him I will never know. He is sucha panty waist. Thank you so very much for your kind works about my blog. It is always nice to hear that folks like to visit. I enjoy your words immesnly and you make me laugh. I bet we could have a hellava lunch date sharing life's experiences. Blessings to you and I hope you get Clint for Christmas. Sea Witch

I'm a day late and a dollar short on telling you that it was GONE WITH THE WIND but that's OK. I just wanted to drop by to say hi and to let you know that although life does have some strange twists and turns - it is always, always worth living

Libbie said...

That Blockbuster one made me cringe!!! How do you get it on the ceiling! I am still shuddering a tad.

The Pink Birdhouse said...

I can not believe it and either will you. I just watched Gone with The Wind the other night, the whole thing from start to finish and i did not know that the quote was in that movie until I read the other commments. How could I have missed something like that, since it has to be the 100th time that i saw that oh so wonderful movie. Some times I just get in the mood for it!! I will have to go check out that post with the funny story in it that you posted the comments about. Now you have my curiosity working over time! off now to see what it was all about. Debby

A Little Something Added said...

Maggie, I have been thinking of you! Just wanted you to know even though I am using my daughters computer that I am your real live friend from GA. SharDonExclusives, Sharon
I don't want to check her off so I will write via her address. It is freezing cold here and lots of dirty snow to greet me on my arrival Sat. Merry Christmas, dear dear Maggie, I am sooooo sorry to hear about the hit and run but it does give you a good story to post (however it is NOT funny) I am thinking of you while I am in Iowa freezing my buns off. More snow on Wed. so we will have a white Christmas afterall. I fell UNDER the car with all my luggage chasing after me when I arrived but the trip up was deliciously relaxing. Have a wonderful wonderful Christmas and don't peak at your gift. Love, Sharon
p.s. I am missing those choc peanuts on the ya' sk
