TV Top Ten
For all of those little things that capture my attention.(or big, however you want to look at it)
There's a headline I never thought I'd see. But it happened. The sheriff's deputy just left our home. Thank God we are all safe. 5 gunshots woke us up. Parker slept through the whole thing. When I woke up I immediately looked out the window and saw 2 men running down the street, as if they were fleeing the gunshots. The sheriff's deputy said they believe someone was hit. Again, thank God, it was not someone in our household. Many sheriff cars are blocking off our street. The yellow caution tape was hanging from the tree in our yard. Very surreal. I am having a hard time winding down from it.
I took Toddler MM to his first movie in the theaters yesterday. He did pretty well, lasting about 80 minutes before we had to bolt due to his restlessness and noisiness. So daddy didn't get to see how the film ended. But overall it was a fun experience. Bubba laughed at the silliness of the dogs. We even laughed at some of the same scenes. And he sat on dad's lap and enjoyed popcorn the whole time. It's funny. Parker, at age 2.5, unlike most children, has never been interested in animated movies or TV shows. Instead he likes live action programming like Wipeout and NBA basketball. That's why I chose "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" because I thought a live action film with pets in it would hold his attention. And for the most part, it did. He was so cute, yelling "again" after parts of the film that made him laugh. Unfortunately, dad didn't know how to explain to him that the magic of TIVO hasn't come to the movie theater yet. We will add this film to momma's DVD collection when it comes out in March so that we can own Bubba's first film experience, but also so daddy can figure out how the movie ends.
This story is so disturbing I don't even know where to begin. I will be donating some money to the church for the rebuilding fund. Simply because I am fond of Gov. Palin and her faith and her politics. It really would not surprise me at all to find out some loony liberal torched the church because Gov. Palin and her family attend services there. So crazy how the media tried to make us believe Gov. Palin was the one with the weird religious ties all the while Sen. Obama was best friends with whack job Rev. Wright. We are soon becoming a country where Christians are going to be persecuted in more aggressive, open ways. This fire may be just one example of that.
I heard this on the radio yesterday; what I think was the first time and it made me cry. It is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. I loved it so much I had to find out more.
Songs I still need on my MP3 player (which my lovely wife got me for Father's Day):
No time to blog today. We are taking Parker to see "Sesame Street Live." I think I am more excited than he is. He doesn't watch "Sesame Street" so the only character he knows is Elmo, from his talking Elmo toy. But it should still be fun, if we can get our Bubba to sit still and pay attention.
