A perfect evening: viewing humorous, romantic movies.

Perfect Evening: Viewing A Humorous, Romantic Movie

Life's Reflections

There is nothing like getting lost at home at night watching TV when you’re viewing your favorite movies.

I don’t watch movies as much as I did at one time. But I do have my favorites. They include “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” which I saw on TV the other night; “Murphy’s Romance;” and “Son-In-Law.” A couple others are “Love Story” and “Sleepless in Seattle.” I am sure there are more but they’re the only ones I can think of right at the moment.

I don’t know why my favorites involve romance with a little or even a lot of humor but they are. I guess it is because I was raised in a loving home. There’s nothing like watching two people, such as my parents, fall in love and live happily ever after. My brother, sisters and I did.

As for romance myself, I can dream, can’t I? No, I’m totally happy with the hand that God and life has dealt me.

I love tear-jerkers, too, but nothing involving science fiction or criminal chases.

Believe it or not, I do enjoy watching the murder mysteries. I think the investigation intrigues me. Sometimes, I think I would have made a good private eye, but it would involve chases, I’m sure, not to mention confronting the enemy and possibly weapons. And, all I would have on me is a camera. That’s not me, except for the camera.

I say I enjoy the investigations because I have myself have been able to figure out what is going on in some instances, whether it be on TV or locally in real life. Of course, my findings are not necessarily that interesting or important.

I think everybody has something in them that comes out when they watch others in life.

On the other hand, son Jamie’s favorite movies are: “Wizard of Oz,” (which is classical); “Mrs. Doubtfire” (I’d have to agree); “The Goonies” “The Gremlins”; “No Holds Barred”; and “The Princess Bride.”

A friend, Lyle, is hooked on westerns and could watch them over and over. He is also interested in history, especially the Civil War; and likes such shows as “American Pickers” and “Pawn Stars.” And, don’t forget sports for both Jamie and Lyle. Lyle loves watching baseball, football and movies that involve any of the above. Just this week, he watched “Field of Dreams” again. Great movie though. I can’t hold that against him.

To each his own. That’s what makes the world go round.

Jamie and I extend our condolences to the families in the loss of: Mack Harter, Carol Lenker, Jim Crouse, Michael Good, Frank Prasuhn, Richard Norris, Chris Heitkamp, Jim Kepler and James E. Wolfe.

Think about it: “Some love stories aren’t epic novels. Some are short stories. And that’s okay. That doesn’t make them any less worthwhile, sincere or filled with love.” — Author Unknown.
