Breakfast, Candles and Automobiles

You may have heard the news. John Hughes died. If you were a teenager in the 80's, you know what a terrible loss this is. John Hughes created characters we all loved and hated.

Duckie, Claire, Farmer Ted, Dell Griffith, Uncle Buck, The Griswolds, and the list goes on.

Hubs declared the terrible tragedy today while we were sitting on the sofa.

"John Hughes died! Did you know that?"


"John Hughes!"


"Guess there won't be a Breakfast Club 2."

"Nope. Plus, they're all too old anyway."

"Yeah, they'd call it Breakfast Club 2 with Oatmeal and Postum."

"And high fiber pancakes."


"Then they'd all go for their water aerobics."

The sad thing is that we'd be drinking Postum with them.


Seriously, thank you John Hughes. You made teen angst an art form.

We won't forget about you.

What was your favorite John Hughes film?

Pretty in Pink

If I had a quarter for every time I watched that movie....I'd have a lot of quarters.

Breakfast Club with the rat pack for sure.

Sixteen Candles? Was that his work? I liked that one too.

All of them ... seriously funny and riddled with memories. Can't pick a fave. Though, I DO remember thinking that Ferris Bueller's Day Off was THE coolest thing I'd ever seen.
