Hold On

I have some Fandango tickets that I have to use before June 6th and I used 1 of them yesterday to see Bridesmaids.  I really liked the movie. I laughed, cried and generally forgot about everything for a couple of hours. That is when I know I liked a movie.

Wilson Phillip’s song “Hold On” plays a prominent role in the movie. One of the lines in the song struck a cord with me. Actually, the whole song did. I must have heard that song hundreds of times in my life and yet I never paid attention to it. I have to say, I need to listen to it more often.

Maybe because I am struggling with a lot of internal and external things right now and I often think that things will never change. That if this is the next 40 years of my life, I want no part of it. I really need to change that think and pull myself up.

I recommend the movie. It gets my thumbs up.

I was thinking about driving down to the national cemetery in Bourne to see my grandfather’s and my grandmother’s and step-grandfather’s graves.  My grandfather was a captain in the Army during World War II and my step-grandfather was in the Army and fought in Italy. The traffic would be horrible and since my debit was poached yet again in the Michael’s data breach, I won’t have quick access to cash to get more gas. I will go another weekend.

I hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day weekend if you are in the states. Back to work tomorrow.


  1. I can't think of "Hold On" without thinking of the back up singers from The Dan Band. Skip to 1:32 (really--don't bother with the first minute and a half) for a great cover of the song:

  2. I've heard so many good things about this movie and can't wait to see it. It's not released until June 16 here though!!

  3. I think everybody but me has seen this movie. Sigh! I wanna see it! *whine*

  4. The line "hold on for one more day" has gotten me through many tough times. I've been holding on to this song for years.


I love your comments!
