There’s only one logical course of action: To watch all four Indiana Jones movies, all three Jurassic Park movies, ET and Saving Private Ryan (no, wait—scratch Saving Private Ryan, the kids are too small) tomorrow afternoon.
Monday is the 149th anniversary of The Gettysburg Address. Every year they have a ceremony and a reenactment of the speech. Every year the same guy (James Getty) dresses up like Abraham Lincoln and delivers the address.
The event starts at 9:30 in the morning. At 9:30 in the freezing cold morning. 9:30 in the freezing cold morning, to listen to some guy give an old speech. Not what 7 and 10 year old boys would call a good time.
But the keynote speaker is Steven Spielberg! Ooo! Wouldn’t that be fun to hear what he’d have to say?
So, I need to get some buy in from my 7 and 10 year old boys so they’ll want to go and won’t stand around whining about how they’re booored and who is this guy anyway?
Twenty hours of non-stop Spielberg movies might just do the trick…
Picture of the day.
My plate of lasagna and salad and bread. And Darling Husband’s. And Kim’s. And Michael’s. Hey—they made me start the Picture of the Day and The Blog, so they were happy to let their food get cold while I arranged the shot for the Picture of the Day.
Ok, maybe not happy, but resigned.
Ok, not resigned either. I got about 5 seconds for the picture before they said, “Enough!” and started eating.
