Movie

Prepare Ye

For the past week or so, we have been talking about the movie, “Godspell”. We always loved the music and sang a couple of the tunes. Neither mom nor I have the stamina to get to church, so we went downstairs to the big TV. The Mass we landed on was the one from the […]

It Is A Wonderful Life

My mom and I watched, “It’s a Wonderful Life” in 2 parts as she can’t sit and watch TV for long. We watched the ending tonight and were both bawling. I’m sure that was good for our sinuses. It is pretty easy for me to wave the white flag when things are going lousy and […]

Shia LaBeouf and Padre Pio

This evening I watched an amazing discussion with Shia LaBeouf and Bishop Robert Barron. Shia had admittedly hit rock bottom and experienced an incredible conversion when he was offered an acting roll to play St. Padre Pio. It was a very powerful video and I highly recommend it. https://youtu.be/hjxKG4mR3U4. I Found God today in an […]

The Great State Fair

My parents wanted to watch something entertaining on TV tonight, so we went through some of the newer free movies. None of them sounded good. Most were rated R with violence and objectionable language. My dad asked if there wasn’t a good comedy or musical. That sent me to YouTube where I searched for classic […]

My Blessed History

My dad has always been on the cutting edge of photography beginning when he was in high school. He also owned a movie camera at that time and started putting together movies as well. I remember watching some of them on an old reel to reel projector and portable screen. Many years ago, my brother […]

Hearing Together

This morning when my dad put his hearing aids in, he realized how everything was so loud. He had to leave the kitchen while I was making breakfast because it was too noisy. He said that even when he took a deep breath, it sounded like a tornado. So, we headed back to the hearing […]

Continuing the Chronicles

For years my son and I have watched the Chronicles of Narnia, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” at Christmas time. When I was at his place the other day, I mentioned it to him. He pulled out the DVD and let me borrow it. Tonight, I watched it with my parents. It was […]

Mid Pandemic Quarantine Surprise

We got a “mid-pandemic-quarantine” surprise package from my brother yesterday. It was a blu-ray player and some movies. My dad and I worked on getting it set up today. When we came to the place where we weren’t sure what to do next, my dad called my brother on Facetime. He was able to walk […]

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 […]
