Book Review: Elizabeth Of York by Alison Weir

Back in November, I celebrated my birthday with a trip to one of my favorite places: Barnes & Noble. I hadn’t been there since 2012, so it had been a long time coming and even though I had a list of books that weren’t necessarily for pleasure, I still managed to find two books that I found interesting, one was The Kings and Queens of England by Ian Crofton and the other was Elizabeth Of York by Alison Weir.

If you remember, 2016 was the year where I watched a lot of documentaries and discovered the On-Demand button apparently! I watched The Tudors in the month of February and made a review and that June I watched The White Queen which is the story of Edward IV and his commoner wife Elizabeth Woodville and the lives of George, Duke Of Clarence, King Richard III, (brothers of Edward) Margaret Beaufort, Margaret Of Anjou, Henry V, Thomas Neville, “The Kingmaker” (cousin to Edward, George, and Richard) and his wife and daughters Isabella (later wife to George) and Anne (later wife and queen consort to King Richard III). I also reviewed the show on here after finishing the series.

I bought this book before I ever found out that they were continuing the TV series of Philippa Gregory’s books, what both shows were based off of, not Alison’s effort. I will say once I found out there was to be a show telling the reign of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, it did fuel my inspiration to finally read it. I started on it either before or on February 28, sometimes I read a lot in one sitting, but I am not sure when I actually started on it. On Goodreads, it states that the book is over 500+ pages long but the real last part of her story ends on 457! The rest of it explains references mentioned inside and Alison also gives you a list of some of her ladies-in-waiting, maid-of-honours, and gentlewomen.

If you were to read some of the reviews of this book on Goodreads, they might discourage you from ever purchasing it. Elizabeth of York wasn’t the type of queen who ruled the country through her husband, she wasn’t that type of person so most people think she was weak and maintained this goody-too-shoes attitude to her husband and the rest of the court, but I don’t think this is a bad thing! She was taught from a very young age what was expected of her as Queen of England and mother to her children. Despite the fact that she was a well-liked queen, some thought deserved to rule the kingdom than anybody else, but at the time no female had done that until her granddaughters Mary I, Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots.

So here are some sections you will learn inside the book!

Elizabeth Of York is the oldest daughter of King Edward IV and his Queen, Elizabeth Woodville. Her mother was originally a widow of soldier who fought with the House of Lancaster, her husband Sir Thomas Grey died on the battlefield. She already had two young boys, Thomas and Richard Grey. When the young King Edward met with them it was only to ask for her husband’s land back after they were confiscated when Sir Thomas died. They met under an oak tree and Edward was obviously very taken with her that he fought against his “Kingmaker” Thomas Neville and family’s wishes to not marry into royal blood.

Elizabeth was born in 1466, at that time they, of course, didn’t have ways to know whether or not the baby was going to be a male and heir to the throne. So when she was born, instead of her father being furious with her and his wife, he accepted her and hoped for heirs in the future. King Edward and Queen Elizabeth ended up having 10 children in all, but two of them died. There were three places that she and the royal family and court lived during her early childhood: Sheen, Greenwich and Westminster Castle. Her father had betrothed Elizabeth about five times, the first being to the Dauphin of France after he and his brothers were to go to war to fight back their lands against King Louis XI.

After the death of her father in 1483, her uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester was named guardian of her younger brother Edward V and he was taken by force to The Tower; later he would be joined by their younger brother Richard where the rumors would fly for many decades about what really happened to them as “The Princess In The Tower”. Also at this time, Richard got Parliament to accept that Edward’s marriage to Elizabeth’s mother was invalid and that the children were bastards thus the Duke of Gloucester became King Richard III.

I’ve chosen to leave quite a bit out of this review for a reason–it would ruin the entire thing if I told you more! The book itself is a little intimidating because of the amount of pages it has, but there’s always a thrill of learning about a person’s life, especially if they’ve been dead for centuries! I am generally a fan of biographies, so I knew I’d enjoy it!

I will say I did have some favorite chapters! Chapter 5: “Her Only Joy and Maker” which talks about what would be expected of not only Elizabeth of York when she’s married but her sisters, what their roles of both wife and mother if their husband was of royal blood, Chapter 9: “Offspring Of The Race Of Kings” you will see the birth of King Henry VII and Elizabeth’s first child Prince Arthur! Chapter 11: “Bright Elizabeth” tells you about her coronation as Queen of England in great detail and Chapter 15: “The Spanish Infanta” is about when the Princess Katherine of Aragon finally married Prince Arthur of Wales and some unfortunate events happen afterwards!

I gave the book on Goodreads four stars I think! It would have been five stars, if I hadn’t ruined a bit for myself between watching The White Queen last year and scooping out little pieces of information on the internet… That’s how I knew what year she had died and how many kids she and her husband had together! Also, if you are wondering whether or not to read the book, do not look through the reviews! Keep yourself away from the spoilers and let yourself be open to the story of the forgotten Plantagenet-Tudor queen!

Have you read Elizabeth of York: A Tudor Queen and Her World yet? Are you watching The White Princess on STARZ?

REVIEW | Disgraced

Last time I reviewed a basketball themed documentary because it was still March Madness, well on the 31st, I watched another one that was similar, but instead of a happy ending this one wasn’t…

Showtime premiered Disgraced and it was about an incident that happened at Baylor University in 2003 involving the entire basketball team. A college student and basketball player Patrick Dennehy, was shot and killed by another team member who was supposedly was his best friend. Patrick and the one who shot him, Carlton Dotson were again supposedly paranoid about another teammate Harvey Thomas and his friend and cousin, Larry Johnson after having them over. The story goes that both Harvey and Larry had guns on them and were using them to scare the boys from accusing them for any wrong doing.

Later, after feeling extra paranoid of their situation, they in turn buy their own set of guns and told their other roommates that if Harvey or anybody else came looking for them to not let them in. So clearly, this raises some flags I would say! I guess though, they went to their coaches and asked if they should go to the police, their main coach Dave Bliss, said to keep things “in house” meaning don’t tell anyone as I imagined. This is where things began to get very strange because within a few days later Patrick Dennehy ends up missing and it’s within these days that people are now looking into the team and the coaches of Baylor University.

I was very much amazed by the amount of things discussed or in some cases, not talked about it within the mystery of how Patrick is dead and how Carlton, who was like a brother to him, would kill him. I mean, if they were as paranoid as they said to be, the mental statuses of Carlton kind of makes sense. You’ll learn more about what I mean when you watch the film. My thing was what the coaches did though, assistant coach Abar Rouse recorded the head coach, Dave Bliss as they began to create a cover up for the rest of their team on how much they knew about the situation of their players. Now a lot of people would think this was wrong and that he should have went to the coach and told him about his feelings about it, but like everybody said he was literally backed into a corner and Bliss even told him “I can hire and fire assistant coaches at will” now would you want to tell him after hearing that? I wouldn’t, I’d probably record him too honestly!

The film was very interesting and like my dad told me too, they’re not the first ones to have this type of scandal and sadly, I don’t think they’ll be the last either.

So did you watch Disgraced yet? What were your thoughts on the documentary?

Nana’s Birthday Fun!

Hi 🙂

It’s been a while since I’ve actually done a big family weekend post! I’ve been wanting to keep some things private, since my papaw’s passing I’ve been really cherishing the time with them and usually we’re not even taking pictures of what we’ve been doing, so that’s the other reason why you haven’t seen a lot lately!

My cousin Taylor and his mom, my Aunt Laurie have spring break the last week of March, where it goes into April. This has always been such a blessing because my nana’s birthday is during the first few days of the month so they get to come down without having to worry about going back to work two days later! They came down without Mike, because he still had to work and that part sucked! They also brought their dog Mila, she’s a lab/German Shepard mix if I haven’t said that yet! I don’t think I have though! She’s such a sweetie and since my aunt and uncle are deaf, she has to be very alert to know what they are saying, and yes she does know sign language. It’s so cute!

They came down on Saturday afternoon, they enjoyed their alone time with my nana. Poor Laurie and Taylor were put to work after a bit after they got there I think. The last time they came down, everybody brought down like 10 drawers from upstairs and throughout both February and March, my nana and I have been slowly getting through them. For the most part, we cleared out I think five big drawers and a smaller one. I moved them into papaw’s room as she finished each one so we had more room to move around in the living room. Thankfully, I had physical therapy in the last two months so my strength was back in full force and I could lift these without having back and neck problems!

I had them folded on their sides and stacked on top of each other in my papaw’s room! I had never left more like Supergirl until I did this! They were heavy, but not as we expected them to be! So when Laurie arrived, she had Taylor carry them back upstairs and now we only have two left and that is mostly DAR and genealogy stuff! Other than that, the living room is as good as new!

On Sunday, my nana had some extra guests come over. She basically had everybody in her family come down, as Rick and Linda were down on Saturday for lunch! David, Katt, my cousin Kristi came down as a surprise, they’re really good at that! Kristi came bearing her almost three-month old “baby” boy Joseph! My nana has been dying to meet this little guy, along the rest of us too! I didn’t know she had come down with them until I was in the car with Blondie, Brandon and Chipper in the McDonald’s drive thru! Unfortunately I can’t hold babies, it really sucks but since he was like under 20 pounds, my thighs are okay with it!

I have asked Kristi if I could share a picture of him, and she said yes, so you guys get to meet the little ham!

We didn’t stay very long as my mom had to work that weekend so when she finally came over, she was very tired and I think only stayed over less than an hour! It was okay since we came back the next day, but David, Katt, Kristi and little Joe went home that afternoon!

On Monday, it was somewhat of a blur, especially in my mind! That’s the one bad thing about family gatherings, is that sometimes my conscience goes in and out, so I tend to forget things that went on if it’s longer than two days! I do remember taking lots of pictures, I will have two DIY projects coming soon! One is a combination of Easter/spring, but the other was somewhat of a surprise. It was more of my nana’s idea, she originally wanted video of it but I figured it would be more than a minute so we compromised and I will blog it instead! I think you guys will like it!

The whole weekend we were expected to get some bad storms, but they kept going to the next day and the next. Our weather is very bipolar here in the Midwest! Since we never got the storms, we went outside a couple of times. I tried to take pictures but it was very bright and I don’t do enough roaming around on the sidewalk that I didn’t feel safe moving a lot plus the bottom of my foot didn’t like the feel of the concrete, so I only managed to get one picture before heading back inside! My mom and Aunt Laurie put up her new bird feeder that Uncle Mike made for her! It’s very cool, unfortunately I do not have a tutorial for that, sorry!

And then finally on Tuesday, we did something that we don’t normally do! In our hometown, there’s a new restaurant called Cakes & Coffee Cafe and they always have their specials of the day hanging outside the building and so whenever my mom and I drive by we always look at their specials! It’s become our thing now! We finally went there to eat and check it out and I was very happy!

The building was a bank for decades before it laid empty for most of my childhood. We moved into the area when I was like six years old and we’ve also driven past it and it looks so modern up against these older buildings, that have been there since the town was established in the early 1800s! It was now owned by a family friend Randy. I always thought it would be smaller once inside, because it just sort of gives you that illusion that it would have a small interior.

Once you walk in, the amount of space grabs you and then you look around at all of the back and white pictures of how the town used to look like was intoxicating! It was like a mini museum and I couldn’t get enough! We have a well-known celebrity that was born and raised here and it is baseball legend Gil Hodges; there were pictures and a huge plaster head of him hanging above a doorway, but the main attraction is the vault. They still have that little room and the giant door! The space and walls have become a place where you can write your name on! So before we all left, we signed it and my nana had a ball! We even got our pictures done in the actual vault!

This was what I got, just your normal biscuits and gravy with a little cup of fresh fruit! I made the mistake of not asking for a kid’s cup for my drink beforehand because when it arrived to our table, we all looked at like “uh oh!” but surprisingly I could reach it but next time, we’ll be asking for a small cup!

17799411_10202749053285534_7101799147659453657_n

My nana aka “the birthday girl” got the special of the day which was Turkey Manhattan. She let me have a bite of it and it was good! My mom and Aunt Laurie got a chicken salad on a croissant, like a real croissant! They ordered German potato salad as their side! Taylor went in the same route as I did and got breakfast too. He got pancakes and managed to finish his before any of us! That’s a growing boy for you!

17800328_10202749053325535_6680794072063373822_n

After we got back to the house, it was time for cake and my Aunt Laurie made a chocolate cake with rainbow sprinkles! Everybody had a small slice of cake and I obviously was too full from my meal because I didn’t eat very much of my piece. I didn’t even have any ice cream!

One of the last things we did was play a couple of rounds of UNO. I have owed my cousin Taylor two rounds of it since November and I managed to win twice but when Laurie joined, she won the next one and then my nana played the last game and Laurie won again! My poor nana still doesn’t know the symbols on the cards, and can barely figure out the colors so she made it kind of interesting and hilarious for all of us! I’m still shocked that I won at all! I literally never win at UNO! I think Taylor was probably surprised too!

I think it was a good weekend with my family! Apparently so good that Tuesday night I crashed so hard that I laid on one side of my bed for six hours straight! And then when my mom woke me up before she went to work the next morning, she gave me another muscle relaxer and I crashed again, waking up at 12:35pm, but I didn’t care!

I apologize for the pictures below, my mom’s camera has been making them kind of grainy in a strange way! 

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun and exciting?!

Song Review: “Home” by Tara Macri

Hi 🙂

I’m here to talk about a pop singer-songwriter by the name of Tara Macri, I’ve been asked twice now to review her singles. I don’t necessarily remember why I didn’t do it the first time, it could have been because I was really busy at that moment! Luckily, April is a month where I’m not so busy… yet.

Tara has a very sweet, loving voice! The first time I heard her voice, I swore she was a country singer or could go into that genre very easily! Her newest song is called, “Home” that came out in January. This song is actually very pretty! It is of piano and cello, which is one of my favorite combinations of course! So it has this sweet and mellow atmosphere but it also has a somber, almost dramatic vibe going on when using the strings in it too. They’re not overpowering against her voice, everything is a good balance! I love it!

I don’t usually do single (one track) reviews anymore. It is mostly because you either give a bad or good review. When you have multiple songs on an album, it’s easier to see how worthy it is as a whole, but when it’s just one song, as a reviewer you tend to feel kind of sad if the ending result doesn’t end well. This is the one drawback for reviewing anything when you give out 100% of your own thoughts on a post.

At least we can say, this has a happy ending!

Have you heard of Tara Marci’s new single “Home” yet? What are your thoughts about it?

REVIEW | Perfect In ’76

The month of March is a time for beloved basketball fans and the most dreaded time for anyone who loathes it as well. March Madness is exactly that, it is madness! I’ve sadly just realized that it’s not all about college basketball though, for high schools around the United States have their sectionals, regionals, and state championships all in this time too! I don’t know why I am just now figuring that out, but I am.

Showtime took it upon themselves to use it to feature a number of specials on the network for any basketball fans, and since I go back and forth with loving and hating it, (yes, there was a time where I’ve hated basketball!) I found a documentary that I thought would be cool to watch despite the fact that it would premiere on the weekend of my papaw’s passing. I recorded it and hoped that maybe I would leave it to the weekend after so I would (hopefully) get through it in one piece. I barely made a day!

It was called “Perfect In ’76” and was narrated by a fellow Hoosier and musician John Mellencamp and the whole thing discusses the perfect season of Indiana University’s Hoosiers in 1976, it included some of the former players on the team and announcers whether on local TV news stations or radio. It also had the infamous coach Bobby Knight talking about not only the undefeated season in ’76 but also the near-perfect season of the year before when they were beat by Kentucky in the NCAA championship.

One of the things that they first show is Indiana’s landscape of both city life with the campus in Bloomington and rural country sides that is probably the most known feature about the state. The first thing that John explains to the viewer is that “Basketball was invented in Massachusetts, but it was made for Indiana” and included that children were raised on basketball and IU was at the heart of it all. Everything about this scene was true, at least in my family.

My family is a fairly large basketball family, it ranges from IU, Butler, Purdue; my sister’s fiance is actually a fan of North Carolina, so he’s the only non-Indiana team in our family, which according to a number of my family members my papaw seemed to hate them with a passion. He was probably not happy how the 2017 NCAA championship ended. Anyways, this man would tape (well, most of the time it was my nana setting it up) almost every game on television so he could watch it whenever he was at home. We’ve had bookshelves and cabinets full of VCR tapes of basketball games around that house! I remember the late 90’s and we’d have family in the living room watching the game and all of us grandkids on the floor not exactly understanding what all the excitement was about basketball, later on majority of my family played basketball in school, I think everybody but my cousin Amy did it outside of elementary school.

Back to the documentary though, I watched it not really understanding some of the stats – I don’t know all of the correct terms and what the difference between a “forward” and “guard” but I have never had a problem with watching it! So whenever they were discussing the different players and Bobby Knight wanting a better offense when he first became the head coach of the team. I think it all went in one ear and our the other. I really liked it though, it was interesting! We all think of Bobby Knight as this angry dude who threw a chair across the court and got escorted off, but to see him like this especially in the last scene where they’re all sitting in the diner and he makes a speech to his former players and gets choked up a bit about how amazing they were and how he always appreciated them. It changes what we see in this person that has such an intimidating persona.

What I really found sort of hilarious, is that literally four days before I watched this Indiana University actually fired their current coach Tom Crean and everybody in my family about had a field day with this news because my papaw called it a long time ago! A month earlier, Bobby Knight had called into a radio and expressed his feelings against his former bosses and I couldn’t contained myself, I had to laugh at that! Gave it a few years and Tom will probably do the exact thing same and we’ll be back rolling our eyes at him.

Have you seen this documentary yet? Do you love (or hate) basketball?

Photo Diary | Massive Amount Of Cats!

Howdy!

So I am back with another photo diary and I apologize in advance for anybody out there who doesn’t like cats, because between the last photo diary and my recent post about how I got a new camera I’ve managed to consume a lot of cat pictures in just two months! This is ridiculous I know, but for those who love our cats, you will enjoy the stories and pictures below!

This first batch was from the previous camera and I do remember banging it on our back porch and the cats just staring at it like food was going to come spilling out of it. Greedy little bastards! If I haven’t told you this, the reason why I have a lot of pictures of them eating is because half the time they just run into the house whenever you open the doors so it’s better to have food on hand to help distract them so I can scoot out to the porch. It seems to work with all of the cats but Bootsie. She’s still the one that makes a beeline to the food container or one of the bedrooms. We can’t tell you how many times where we’ve found her just chilling on the bed after a few hours!

This next batch, I decided to experiment with the different settings on my new camera and somehow I managed to create this red-ish hue around the cats and the shadows of chairs, I don’t know what explain made everything like that but I don’t think it was a bad thing!

On the day I took these I screwed my camera onto my little tripod and they seemed to think was another thing to rub up against because I had to delete quite a few (and still have to) because they would just head butt it and fall over in front of me, but I hope they realize that all I want to do whenever they act like this is take more pictures of them! Everything they do though I want to try to capture it on film and post it on here for you guys but they are fast little boogers! I can never get them to stay in one place too long before they get bored and run away from me to explore. I can’t say I blame them for this, if I had the power to do that I would do that too!

Again, I’m sorry for the big selection of pictures of the cats! I definitely didn’t plan on taking so many at one time. It just sort of happened and funnily enough, I don’t think I will ever learn from this because I kind of like it. I definitely didn’t want them to be individual pictures at the different parts because I figured that would make it worse and unappealing! So that’s why I ultimately made them into a slideshow!

Hope you’ve enjoyed all of the pictures. I’m also thinking about playing a game for all of my readers via Twitter and Facebook next month, called “Name That Cat” and I’m testing everybody and you have to guess who is who. Remember the names are: Bootsie, Midge, Grumpy, Bear-Bear, Stormy, Tavis (Tavy), Felix (FiFi), Oscar, and Nelson (Nelly)!

Which picture(s) are your favorites? If anybody has any good camera knowledge that would be more than welcome to help explain a few things to me, that would be great!

Top 5 Quotable Scenes Of Our Favorite Disney Films!

Howdy!

I am not kidding when I say that while writing this post I was listening to a playlist of my favorite Disney songs! I figured it was only right to do that! 🙂

I’ve been thinking about my favorite scenes in all of the Disney films out there! We are more into singing the songs than acting out our favorite scenes, for obvious reasons! Some of us do NOT want to embarrass ourselves whether out in public or with family around in case somebody’s got their phone and using Snapchat. As I’ve been told, once somebody busts you, it’s a bit hard to escape it afterwards, but it is perfectly fine to say the scenes while laying in bed eating popcorn, just don’t get choked!

I wanted to write out my all-time favorite scenes that I tend to say aloud without even thinking now! Unfortunately, I have screwed myself a few times in the past! So if you’re ever around me and a Disney movie is on the TV, there’s a 50/50 chance I’ll just go ahead and quote it!

1.) Zazu Singing To Scar – The Lion King (1994)

I have trouble with watching The Lion King all the way through. I have always had issues with it and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one! I mean, between this one and Tarzan I think they’re the saddest kid-friendly movies ever!

Despite rarely watching the film, I think the funny relationship between Scar and Zazu is the best! When the scene of Scar is basically eating his last meal of both Pride Rock and in general, he has poor Zazu locked away inside a decomposing ribcage of a small animal and he is just singing somberly and Scar wants him to be more cheery and then Zazu just breaks into “It’s A Small World After All” and Scar is like, “hell no!” and then they finish the last scene of the two of them with this little tune mentioned in the gif above!

2.) The White Rabbit Saying “I’m Late” – Alice In Wonderland (1951)

I am obsessed with Alice In Wonderland well, the old Disney film at least! I still haven’t seen the second of the live-remake yet! My only problem now is that I use this film to help me fall asleep at night!

I think everybody would agree that the white rabbit basically singing “I’m late” throughout the whole movie is a little annoying, because then you have the little jiggle stuck in your head either later that day or in my case because I’ll turn it on late at night, it’ll creep its way into my brain in the middle of the day and I’m pulling an Alice and humming while doing things at my nana’s house!

3.) Buzz Lightyear Meeting Woody and The Other Toys – Toy Story (1995)

Toy Story has become a new love of mine! I don’t necessarily remember being into it when I was younger, but one day in November last year, I saw it on Nick Jr–don’t knock it, that’s where I’ve found majority of my favorites again–and I’ve been addicted to it. However, I usually lose interest in it around the time Woody just knocks Buzz out of the window.

My favorite scenes starts when Woody takes his younger sister Molly downstairs and the toys suddenly awaken and start roaming around the room like normally. The first scene is of Potato Head trying to gather his facial features back into his head after Molly basically puts it into her mouth and bangs it against her crib and says “Ages 3 and up, it’s on my box! Ages 3. And. Up. I’m not supposed to be babysitting Princess Drool” it is my favorite thing to quote right out of the gate!

And then I like when Rex pulls Woody’s doodle pad over by the bottom of the crib and starts roars, Woody is not bothered and poor Rex is like, “Were you scared, tell me honestly?” and Woody being a good sport says that he was close to being scared and Rex concludes with “Oh, I’m looking for fearsome here but I just don’t feel it, I just feel I’m coming off as annoying!” I feel ya buddy!

My last quotable scene of the film is when Buzz Lightyear meets Woody and the other toys and Woody is obviously jealous of another toy on his spot on the bed and Buzz thinking he’s the Buzz Lightyear and Woody tries to tell him he’s just a toy (T-O-Y, toy as he says) and then while the toys are asking him about his gadgets and they continue to bicker Woody just says this and I liked the comeback from Potato Head “getting kind of tense, huh?” The beginning of the film has the best quotes I think!

4.) Pain and Panic – Hercules (1997)

Now like AIW Hercules is another film that I can fall asleep too and it’s one that can instantly put me to sleep too, so I hardly ever watch it for pleasure anymore because I know what’ll happen!

I believe the “scene stealers” in this film are Pain, Panic and Hermes. Everybody likes to quote both Hades and Phil the most, at least I see more memes from Hades than any other character from the movie. However, I think Pain and Panic, his little henchmen forgetting to mention that the Fates were there waiting for him and he goes into a rage and the small flame on top of his head kind of grows around his upper body and Pain and Panic basically melt into the ground and change into fat worms to show that they feel guilty about it is pretty freaking hilarious!

tumblr_n5mlpxefup1t3xmw3o1_500

5.) Tantor Refusing To Get Into The Water – Tarzan (1999)

Tarzan is another movie that I have trouble with completing, and it must have something to do with animals and death. In The Lion King only two animals die in the film, one is a beloved character by all whereas Scar is the evil brother who killed Mufasa. In this one, four animals and a pair of humans die! I mean, I think it should have had a PG-13 rating because of the amount of deaths in it!

Anyways, I believe when Tarzan and his buddies were little were probably the more hilarious scenes. They’re just having fun and learning about their surroundings, especially Tarzan! The scene where Tantor does not want to follow his mother into the swamp or whatever and he asks the question above in that high-pitched voice! I mean, we all have probably recreated this scene once or twice in our lifetimes!

If I ever figure out any more quotable moments in other Disney (which will probably happen) I will share them along in a second post! Just as a warning, I have created a fairly large list of blog post ideas and majority of them are movie related, so this will definitely not be the only film post going up this spring!

What are your favorite scenes to quote?
