About Me

I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.

L Dear Rocky - Lady and the Tramp

Dear Rocky,

Lady and the Tramp is pure Disney royalty in my book.  So touched by this cartoon about my favourite animals, my family went onto own a dog called Lady (she lived for 18 years and was my other sibling growing up) and a cat (I know!) called Tramp.

Can you believe this movie was made in 1955 yet tells the timeless tale of falling for the boy from the wrong side of the tracks..... maybe this film influenced my life more than I care to remember haha!  Of course my favourite relationship in this film is the one between Lady and her Tramp.  He has all the offerings of a bad boy, doesn't he?  He's been around the traps, he's a little hurt by life and knows how to look after himself.  At the same time, he has a heart of gold.  What's not to be attracted to?

I wonder why Jacques the Scottish terrier wasn't called Jock?  That would've made more sense to me.

How cute is it though that Lady thinks her owners are called "Jim Dear" and "Darling".  I love that detail.

I think this Disney classic is one that my nephews would watch and enjoy as much as I ever did.

I give this film 9/10.

What about you, Rocky?


Read Rocky's review here.


  1. If your nephews enjoy it half as much as I do, it will be a lifelong favorite! Great review as always!

  2. I've always thought of Jock as J-O-C-K! But my ancestry on my father's side is Scot!


I love to receive feedback, so please leave me a comment.
