close encounters

This is us at Devils Tower, Wyoming. We all saw the movie, 'Close Encounters of The Third Kind,' so we all decided to go in search of Devils Tower...we wanted to see it for ourselves.

I got to see it up-close-and-personal while we were trying to climb it. As my son, Brian, put it....mom had a 'close encounter of the ground kind' at Devils Tower......and it bloodied her nose.

Why does it make you want mashed potatoes?

The scene in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" at the kitchen table when Richard Dreyfuss is passed the large bowl of mashed potatoes. He proceeds to pile this huge mound of potatoes on his plate and uses his fork to try to construct Devil's Mountain, only he doesn't know it's supposed to be Devil's Mountain -- he just knows that it means something and that it's important. He ends up breaking down crying at the table, and so does his kids and wife. That's when they realize he's gone around the bend

Make that "Devil's Tower" not "Devil's Mountain." Sorry.

Yes, I remember that scene with the mashed potatoes now...I'm just a dense head at times.
