“You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out”

We watched A Christmas Story (1983) over Thanksgiving.

Friday night I walked by this window on Carson St after listening to Don Hollowood and the King Cobras at Excuses. Saw the display and thought anyone who has seen this holiday movie would enjoy the picture.  Found out it was shot in Cleveland.  When I was in high school I used to listen to Jean Shepherd on the radio.  I never knew anyone whose tongue stuck on a frozen flagpole.

  1. I love that movie and all it represents – I only wish the “powers that be” would make more like this one!

  2. Thanks for that memory Ruth. It is one of my favorites! I’ve ALWAYS wanted to try the pole thing…

  3. Garrison Keillor talks about kids putting their tongues on frozen polesin Lake Woebegon!! 🙂 There is a Xmas Card Box in Borders with a kid doing just that!!! I’ll have to check the inside message next time I’m in the Store!!!!
