Just You And Me, Kid



Samson Scott

Yeah, that's right. It'll probably be the story of two delinquents.

You see, it's just Sam and me for the next 8 days. Lutheran Lucy and Son Of Maximus are on their way to Colorado to visit family.

Leaving our home in the hands of a dog and an ape. He's almost 3, and I'm almost 43. Hopefully they will arrive back home before we rip the house to shreds.

By the way, I was about to arrive at my 16th birthday when this movie came out in 1979. Brooke Shields was supposed to be the next big thing. Guess that didn't quite work out.

Anyway, one of the most awkward moments of adolescence was walking up to the ticket counter at the multi-screen theater and saying, "Just You And Me, Kid", to the attendant. Somehow, someway, whoever penned the title to this movie just had to know this was going to be so.

Just pray for us. Those of us on the road and those of us at home.

So far I've survived. This is day 4. On day 3 I discovered I could make water run out an odd metallic protruberance in the wall, and that a large rectangular box is full of cold food. I think I'm going to make it.

I'm not so sure about the ape, though.

Blessings,
Samson
