Yes Son ~ your my TOP GUN

For the first time ever I think I have just spent an evening home with my young son, just us, all alone, everyone was staying over someone elses, he had just come back from a busy day of competitive swimming, I cooked him his dinner, we curled up on the sofa and then he announced that we must watch TOP GUN - oK - i'm up for anything nowadays so lets watch.

Apparently it is his favourite film and he says he MUST have a pair of shades just like the pilots- and he MUST have the music too - LOL he is only 11.

Mind you I like the shades too and of course a man in uniform helps the image along and of course Tom has to be in the mix too.

He's not wanting a career flying the skys me wonders ?

How lovely, sounds like a nice bit of quality time. I agree with you about a man in a uniform although maybe not tom c. for me. I will have to have a think about that one!

If he does become a pilot, don't let him describe the experience in too much detail. My oldest is in the Army and I was treated to the tale of how he sits in the doorway of Apache helicopters dangling his legs into the nothing. :( :O Some things a mother does not want to know.

Very nice! I don't even know if my 14 year old son has ever seen Top Gun, I'm a bad mom!!!! Karol
