Florida Factoid Friday

Gone with the Wind Memories,
in Plant City, is the largest gift shop in the world
dedicated to the movie.

I didn't know that. I will have to take Brittney. We both love the movie.

As a child, I was sure I would die of old age before that movie finally ended.

Very interesting !
Isn't that strange!? - that the largest would be in Florida, when the movie (& Margaret Mitchell's book) was about Georgia. One would think that someone would have had the largest one in GA.
When I was a child my mother took me to Atlanta to see the premier opening of the movie. (My father had died in '39 before the movie came out.) Mom also had a first printing (1936) of the book. Don't know whatever happened to it.
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend in Jesus our Lord,
Graceanne :)

Heh. Read it first at 14, an' I jes' KNEW Rhett and Scarlett would git back mama said, "Nope."

I read it again at 17, an' I still knew it would happen--they WOULD git back together, but mama smiled an' said read it again when youse 30.

I did. Oh.

Hope youse well Sophie Mae! We have dogwoods bloomin'. You?

Elizabeth, if you make the trip, try the Branch Ranch restaurant in Thonotosassa.

FC, I tried watching it again last year and deja vued much the same feeling. Have to do it in shifts.

Graceanne, what a wonderful memory!!! I had a first edition of a VERY old book about the Titanic, but it vanished years ago. Might be worth something now.

Aint B... dogwoods... YES! I went up to Tally yesterday to see the new Home Makeover house, but the road was still blocked. But the dogwoods and azaleas and redbuds and star & saucer magnolias made the trip more than worthwhile!
