Farewell John Hughes

The man who brought us such comedy classics as these, iconic 1980s film maker John Hughes, has died.
Each one of these is a staple in our DVD library and never
fail to produce a laugh or a sentimental tear.
Mr. Hughes was also on board, as screen writer, director or producer of
16 Candles, Uncle Buck, Vacation, Pretty In Pink, Mr. Mom, Beethoven, Dennis the Menace and so many others.
Thank you for the laughs and the healthy dose of heart each film contained...

Oh, my gosh! The other day a file came across my desk that said "Beuller",I could not get it out of my head..."Beuller...Beuller...Beuller".
His movies were such a big part of my life.

One of my favorite movies of all time is The Breakfast club. So sad that John Hughes died.

Sad, indeed. I am not so fond of those little reminders that tell us that we are the next generation to go. Fun movies, for sure.
