It’s been an awesome weekend but very busy. Friends and family gathered to celebrate my son Matt and his graduation from high school (the third one my wife has released from the Cookingham homeschool). So, I’m sitting here just thinking and reflecting on the weekend, musing-nating if you will. Oh, and the Bad Boys of Wool have something to offer as well.
A New Beckyism (My eight yr-old daughter) Today in church the pastor was talking about discipline and he asked the kids a question.
Pastor Tim: “Kids, do your parents talk about discipline at home? What words do they use?
Becky (very loud) “Banishment”
Now we are are not talking about sending our children out in the wilderness to suffer but when they lose playing video game rights (because of poor behavior)…then they are “banished”. Of course my older kids starting yelling out things like floggings, mind control…I’ll get them later.
My theory about what makes a good movie involves…chickens.
Every good movie has a chicken in it, mentions chickens or (in the case of Sci-Fi) has some creature that resembles a chicken. Really bad movies will try to fool you into believing that you’re watching a good movie by randomly throwing a chicken in. However, the attempt is usually lame and obvious.
Now that you know the secret, you’ll never look at films the same way again. Watch for the chicken…it’s worth it.
The pun in Bad Sheep is hidden deep…
