Famous Five - Enid Blyton. We weren't well off and I begged and begged for this set of hard covers when they came out in this edition. I took care of them each time I read them like they were made of gold and to this day, except for a little yellowing, they're like new and I love them still.
"An Officer and a Gentleman" (1982). A young man must complete his work at a Navy Flight school to become an aviator, with the help of a tough gunnery sergeant and his new girlfriend. Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Debra Winger and Richard Gere "made" it.
