I also saw the story and found it to be touching and inspirational. I will always love Dirty Dancing but have to admit that roadhouse is a favorite too. cheesy at times - yes - but better than Billy Jack!
The most precious gift of his life that he has been so fortunate to experience is not so much being married 33 yrs (tho quite an achievement) but in having found a soul mate to journey with. TO have come together at such a young age knowing they had something remarkable and hanging in there. what a plateau to have reached - to have that type of love and intensity and depth that can only be achieved by committment and time. there are some that would see that as the ultimate -- nirvana if you will.

Thanks for posting about this OS.
I saw part of the interview and then had heard of his hospitalization. Patrick Swayze and his wife both, seem to be very loving people. They are in my prayers.
- Do you think you will do a post on John Travolta? or do a re-post if you already have done one?

oops...now that i have looked over your site more closely i see you really are an 80s man. Hope saying Bily Jack wasnt sacrilege since he was an icon of the 70s. Actually the first one wasn't tto bad for the times(before you were born) but the second one put me to sleep(maybe you were in diapers by then)Yikes -- i might be too old for this site. i did notice the work and energy that you put into this and think that it is quite good. So even tho the 80s were not really a carefree time for me, i may like to take an occasional peek now and then and refresh my memory

Just praying that he wins this battle. Dirty Dancing was one of my favorites.

Though I have to say that most issues do revolve around the 80s, that is not always the case. Hope you check back often and your comments and feedback are always welcome!
Thanks for reading.

I wish him well in his battle. Those were pretty entertaining films and I have no problem with their order.

So sad to hear about anyone dealing with cancer ~ praying for him ~ and I absolutely love "Dirty Dancing" and it must be popular as it is shown quite often on TV and I watch as often as I can ~ love the music and 'dancing' ~ I did see the Walters interview ~ brought tears to my eyes...

I just wish that he was not in so much pain. I wish he would be one of the miracles and beat this dreadful disease
