Movie

Love to Laugh

For the past several days, we have heard songs from the movie “Mary Poppins”. I think it started last week when my mom started singing, “I Love to Laugh” followed by Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha . . . Then when my dad stepped outside, he would sing, “Have you ever seen the grass so green, […]

For Entertainment Sake

We have been following the shows that Andrew Lloyd Webber has provided every weekend. I found out this morning that “Cats” was to be shown this time. My mom, dad, brother, and I all have seen it before but were in agreement that we wanted to watch it, so we turned it on. At the […]

One Tribe

I had been wanting to see the movie “Black Panther” for a long time now. Tonight seemed like the perfect opportunity, so my brother, my dad, and I watched it. Overall, through the political nuances, I thought it had a great story line. The new king desired to right the wrongs of the past instead […]

World is a Machine

Tonight my parents and I watched the movie, “Hugo” based on the book by Brian Selznick. I had never heard of it before, but came across it on TV and it sounded interesting. The main character is a boy who learned the art of working on clocks from his father. He had a talent for […]

Great Comfort

My parents had a sofa for a long time that wasn’t really comfortable for anyone. They had talked on and off about replacing it, but weren’t exactly sure what they wanted. Finally a few weeks ago, they decided on a Lazy Boy that fit them both just right. It was delivered yesterday. Tonight after dinner, […]

Disney Binge

Last night I was really in the mood to watch a movie, but it was too late to start. Today after church, it was a pretty quiet afternoon. Unfortunately, my mom wasn’t feeling well, so she has been taking it easy, resting and napping. Also, I was a little sore from horseback riding yesterday. So […]

LaLa Land

My dad and brother went up to the cabin for a few days, so my mom and I have stuck around home. Today my son came over to just hang out for the day. We all went out for pizza for lunch. Then we played a couple of games of Yahtzee – one of our […]

Shepherding

Today in church, this was one of the readings from the Bible: JOHN 10:27-30     Jesus said: “My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no […]

Manning Tribute

I chatted with my just barely a teenager grandson this afternoon via text on his own phone. It was great fun talking with him independently from his parents. He is a Broncos fan, even though he lives in the Northeast. Well, he doesn’t really have much choice as his dad is a Broncos fan. I asked […]

Star Wars

I have been wanting to see the new Star Wars movie. When I talked with my son – who saw it opening night – he wanted to see it again so I waited for him. In the mean time I made sure I did not watch too many trailers, or read about it, or come […]
