The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

We miss our Misty very much but we wanted to give a kitty a home for Christmas and find a new friend for Phurbee so we went to the SPCA 2weeks ago and got picked by Charlie. He's 5 years old and a sweety ... plus he's got very long legs, is kind of colt-ish because of it and he also likes to bark with happiness. He's already part of the family and it already feels like he's always been here :-) Welcome home, Charlie!

On the other hand, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas was a 1982 film adaptation of the musical of the same. The film starred Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds and also featured Noah Beery, Jr., Jim Nabors, Charles Durning and Dom DeLuise. Durning was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as the Texas governor. In terms of box-office, The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas was the most successful movie-musical of the 1980s. The film soundtrack was released along with the film in July 1982. In addition to the score of Carol Hall songs that had also appeared on the stage soundtrack, the film soundtrack included two Dolly Parton compositions: "Sneakin' Around", which she performed as a duet with costar Burt Reynolds and a reworking of her 1974 classic "I Will Always Love You", the latter of which topped the U.S. country charts in September 1982.   Since it is almost Christmas a little Hard Candy Christmas is in order.

Charles Durning singing "The Sidestep" has to be one of the funniest moments in film musicals.

Congrats on the new addition to the fold. Charlie quite resembles our recently departed Sam. If he's anything like Sammy, you've got yourself a stellar little friend.
