25 Years Ago......

I been working so hard
Keep punching my card
Eight hours, for what?
Oh, tell me what I got

I get this feeling
That times just holding me down
Ill hit the ceiling
Or else Ill tear up this town
Tonight I gotta cut

Loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise
Pull me offa my knees
Jack, get back
Cmon before we crack
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

You're playing so cool
Obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart
You're yearning, burning for some
Somebody to tell you
That life aint passing you by
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try
You can fly if you'd only cut

Loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Oowhee, Marie
Shake it, shake it for me
Whoa, Milo
Cmon, cmon let go
Lose your blues
Everybody cut footloose

First - we got to turn you around
Second - you put your feet on the ground
Third - now take a hold of your soul
Four - whooooooooa, I'm turning it
Loose, footloose

Well, can you guess the theme to our reunion? Did you get the hints above? Does this Kenny Loggins' #1 hit song from 1984 ring any bells? Yup, FOOTLOOSE! One of my all-time favorite movies, soundtracks, (and actor?)..
As well as being our 25th High School Reunion (ugh), it is the 25th anniversary of the release of the movie Footloose. We used Footloose as a theme for our senior prom that wonderful year of 1984, so we thought it'd be appropriate to do the same for the 25th reunion! Especially since a remake of the movie is due out next year (hello people, would have been better to have it released this year if you must make one!) Anyway, I'm sure it won't hold a candle to the original, sorry Zac Efron. But seriously, can you say KEVIN BACON?? I am still crushing on the ORIGINAL Ren McCormack after 25 years.

If you're reading this Mr. Bacon, we would love to have you as our special guest for the evening of October 17th in a little bitty town called Chowchilla in the state of California. We're serving tri-tip and of course, your beautiful wife is invited as well. You can sit at our table. As a special incentive, we have a great big green John Deere tractor at the ranch that you could drive around that morning and create some new memories.

(I'm afraid there is only one though, so we couldn't play "chicken", sorry 'bout that.)

Please RSVP and let us know if you'll be able to attend! We look forward to your response..

BTW, my husband is very tolerant of my long-standing crush on you and he also looks forward to making your acquaintance.....


  1. Love this movie and this song! Your reunion should be really fun!

  2. Oooooooh, I so LOVE Kevin Bacon- what a hunk-a-burnin'-love! :)
    Hope that you enjoy your reunion!

  3. Dear Jules ~ I'll be happy to attend, but I'll lose the ball-and-chain for the evening, if it's all the same to you. wink-wink (Pay no attention to the name and picture I'm commenting other . . . it doesn't mean a thing . . . really, it doesn't.

  4. That's funny! But, I'm sure the ball and chain wouldn't want to miss out on the festivities....

  5. I love Footloose just like every body else, but I am lucky. Why you ask? I live right next to the town where they filmed the whole movie: Lehi, Utah. Yep. I know where they filmed this scene and that scene. I even know a few people who were extras in the movie! Cool!

  6. What a blast that would have been!
    I'm jealous..

    I saw a cast reunion last year and they were all saying what a fun and special movie that was for all of them.

    I also loved it because Kevin Bacon said they almost didn't hire him for the part, they didn't feel he was sexy enough! I think millions of teen girls (and their mothers) proved that wrong!
