  1. Amazing that we get this one-of-a-kind opportunity with Sam at the convention. I cannot wait!
  2. I'm a bit excited about some of the things I'm gathering and/or creating for the auctions, but I'm not quite ready to tip my hat yet. This IS going to be a great convention. It really is. Boy would I love some of the things listed at the top of this thread! But at least I have Gerry's pants from Gamer that I got at last year's convention! It just keeps getting better and better... Leslie
  3. This is exiciting news for the people down In Louisiana, indeed! I have to say I feel a bit compelled to say a word or two in support and defense of Mathew M. In the past he has been bit of a nut and a player, but he's truly turned into a good father and is rumored to be a very nice person. ALSO...from a performance perspective if you have not seen him as the lead in the film "A Time to Kill" then you have not witnessed without question the finest performance of his career. He's magnificent in that film, and it is a wonderful, wonderful film. In fact, it actually is on my list of top 10 best films. See it if you haven't, you'll love it. It has a fine cast. I think these guys will have a great time filming together, and I look forward to seeing the result down the road. That's all, just had to pop in. Gerry will always be the absolute best, of course. I'm just glad to see him continue to make new and different films...always keeps us on our toes! Leslie
  4. I think his place in Chelsea looks absolutely fabulous. And it is too bad he doesn't get to spend more time there...at least I guess I'm supposing he doesn't get to spend a great deal of time there. It really is warm and masculine, also elegant and romantic. Hadn't looked at these photos in a bit, was a nice reminder of one of his beautiful homes. Thanks! Leslie
  5. Hi, Jon. I'm so sorry to hear of your friend's loss. There is no way to explain why these things happen. If you get the chance, please let her know she is in all of our thoughts and prayers. And she is blessed to have you as a friend. Take care... Leslie
  6. Hi, Jon! Welcome!!! You'll find a great group of people here...and we do love Gerry. He's a brilliant, talented, compassionate, sweet, fun, adventurous man. Did I leave anything out? I just wanted to let you know you are in good company...300 is my favorite film of Gerry's. And, as you said, not because of his physique in the film. For me, I feel it's his most brilliant performance. His strength, emotion and demeanor as Leonidas is fabulous, beautiful and proud. Leonidas himself would be proud of how Gerry portrayed him in the film. There is a great deal to navigate around here. But one of the most helpful things for me is going to "View New Content" just after you sign in each time. It's in the upper right hand quarter section of your screen. This shows you what posts are new in each thread since the last time you logged in. I find that helps me keep up with most things here. This is a great place for Gerry's fans. We come from all over the world, as you well know, and from all walks of life. I cannot tell you how many wonderful people I've met as a result of my admiration for this amazing man. So welcome, welcome, welcome and don't hesitate to share your thoughts, stories, questions. We're definitely here to support Gerry, but each other as well! Leslie
  7. You are amazing for pulling all this together! I just cannot wait for the convention. Thanks for all you do...
  8. Very moving and inspirational article, the best I've yet to see on the story and those involved. I'm really looking forward to this film. Thanks! Leslie
  9. I'm so sorry for your loss. But as you well know you all were so blessed to have each other. Hugs to you, Sweetie... Love, Leslie
  10. I have at least two baskets going. I will most likely be doing some other things as well...can't wait 'til June!!! Leslie
  11. Lisa and Kathy...that was the first thing I thought as well...looks like G. now, but I don't think he would have looked anything like that (older) back then. He was just a young lad!!! Leslie
  12. Finally got to see this interview and it's lovely. He's always great in interviews. But I sense he especially enjoyed conversing with a fellow Scot. It's truly lovely. Leslie
  13. "testosterone rich presence" Um, yes please!!!
  14. I agree, I don't think it is Gerry. Is there any way for any one to authenticate it, though? Seems like there should be some way to do that???
  15. Holly...YOU are AMAZING!!! This is fabulous news, and even though I didn't think I could get any more revved (sp?) up about coming in June, you did it. This is just unbelievable! I know Buffy will be thrilled as well... Can't hardly wait to see all my Gals and Sam in just a few months...woohoo!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Leslie
  16. As all of you are relieved Gerry's fine after this experience, so am I. It wasn't his time to go. That being said, I remind myself of several things...accidents are called accidents because they are unforseen and generally out of our control. Also, Gerry's odds of dying in a million other ways -- for example simply in an automobile accident within 5 minutes of home -- are much greater than in even the worst surfing situation. Look at some of the other situations he's faced. He had a wild and very unsafe youth...remember him talking about jumping from pillar to pillar multiple stories high when visiting his dad as a teenager? He flies to locales around the world constantly. He could have contracted pneumonia filming Beowulf. He's flying helicopters now...the list goes on and on in Gerry's case. Happily, it just wasn't Gerry's time. I've been an avid water baby since before I was a year old. I grew up with the utmost respect for water, especially natural, moving water. But I almost drowned in a small river near where I went to high school. I'm just happy Gerry's okay. And from all reports he wasn't really "pushing the envelope." He's fairly fearless...but Mother Nature can be powerful and unpredictable, and none of us are invincible. -- Leslie
  17. Already making plans for this...CANNOT wait! I already am getting things ready for the silent auctions, etc... Wooooooo!!!!!! Leslie
  18. Thanks for sharing, Cheryl...lovely strapping lad in the white t-shirt, eh? Hope everyone's having a pleasant week... Leslie
  19. Dear Gerry, Happy Birthday... You do the days and years, your profession and your art, and your family and friends and fans honor by living each day of your life with passion, dedication and love. Enjoy the next 365 days as much as, or more than, you enjoyed the past 365 days! Leslie Smith, Fort Collins, Colorado
  20. This is why I hesitate to ever post anything in Gals anymore. Everything has to be a debate with you, Delene. As a matter of fact, I thought about the fact that you would ask that question before I ever posted my opinion, so why did I go ahead and post it? Beats me. I will post this, then I'm done. I agree with Lisa, Gerry will never do a movie with Tom Cruise for a variety of reasons which I don't even feel need to be discussed. But, if Gerry did do a film with Tom Cruise, which would be shocking and very disappointing, and, frankly, not very smart of Gerry, I would not see it. As much as I admire Gerry and his talent and love for his art, I refuse to put even a penny of any money of mine in the pocket of Tom Cruise. Hope that satisfies you. I'm outta' here for quite awhile once again.
  21. Going to the Gals Convention for my first time last year was an unforgettable, fabulous experience that I wouldn't trade for anything. And, as it is easily seen above, many of us already are making plans for 2012. It's never entered my mind to compare going to the Gals convention to going to a premiere to "meet Gerry." To me, the reasons to do either are completely different. I go to the convention for several reasons, but first and foremost to support Gerry and his achievements as the fan I am of his work, which also is why I found Gals. I also go to see the unbelievable women (and some men as well) from around the world who share their admiration, love and support of Gerry, their life experiences, fun and enjoyment. I've never expected Gerry to be there. Of course, I'm sure he'd always be welcome! I hope others realize that there is so much more to enjoying Gerry's career out there. I don't know that I've expressed my thoughts clearly. Suffice it to say that there is much fun, Gerriness, and enjoyment to be had at the convention. A fan would never be disappointed. Leslie
  22. I'm so sorry, Frannie. Bless her soul. Love, Leslie
  23. My two cents... I loved The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and had a crush on BOTH actors. It was a classic and very well done. I doubt Gerry would do it, and I don't care for "remakes," but if Gerry did, it he would do it well. I will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER see any film by Tom Cruise in the future...he doesn't deserve a single penny of my $$$. Leslie
