They say you will marry your father eventually, it wasn't until recently that I realize this is true.  First of all, when Jay was in the hospital, he was hooked up to morphine and he sounded just like my dad did when he was on morphine and had the same look in his eyes.  It was almost eerie.  Now for the second,  my dad loved, no let me rephrase that, was obsessed with the movie Pure Country which starred George Strait and came out in 1992.  I don't know exactly how many times he watched that movie, but my mom would come home and it always seemed to be on, I have been known to embellish a story or two to make it more interesting but I assure you, I am telling you the absolute truth when I say, I bet he watched it at least 20 times before he passed away in 2004.  Well, Jay is home because of his knee replacement and our dear friends Cat and Jerry were kind enough to burn Wild Hogs for him.  We saw it in the movie theatre in 2007 when it first came out and loved it so much that we got it on pay-per-view, then one day Jay came home with it from Blockbuster.  There is 3 times, now with his very own PRIVATE copy, he has watched it 5.5 times and met me for lunch at Olive Garden, said when he got home he was going to finish it...(does the ending change?)  So now you have a total of 8.5 time with the same movie in 1 year.........I think he may give my dad a run for his money!  Hey mom, guesstimate how many times dad watched Pure Country and if Jay beats him we will give his an award, on the QT of course!!

Oh my gosh! I agree with at least 20 times. A close second would be Seabiscuit at 15 times. I really don't get it. There are some movies that I can watch more than once (maybe twice), but over and over? I guess that it's a guy thing.
