March...

...shadows...looks like I need to work on my upper body from this pic.  Late afternoon, late March day.

Another:
Old Glory in silhouette...I am so ready to say goodbye to March and hello to April...hoping for some warmer weather...I'm ready to punch winter in the schnozz.  I'm SICK of this crappy weather...

So this was another low key weekend...we have a lot of those during the neverending winter months...

Friday night we watched "That Thing You Do"...

...a fabulous movie from 1996 about a one hit wonder rock group back in the early 60's.  It's a Tom Hanks flick and it's very impressive...they wrote all new songs for the movie in the style of the early 60's and they absolutely nailed it.  Plus, the four actors who make up the group (the One-Ders who are mistaken for the O-neders enough that they morph into the Wonders) all learned to play their instruments and actually performed live for many of the scenes.  It's a great movie about the excitement of that era and innocence lost during a rocket ship ride to success.

Went into work on Saturday to finish up something...usually work from home, but had to collaborate with someone on a spreadsheet, so it was a joyful morning in the salt mines.

After that K and I did a little home decor shopping at Hobby Lobby...they do have some cool stuff and I'm probably going back for a couple of theater signs.

Saturday night we watched an Alfred Hitchcock / Jimmy Stewart / Grace Kelly classic from 1954, "Rear Window":
It's so much fun to visit that time period via these great movies.  They managed to convey suspense, mystery, sexuality, fear, all without cgi and gross excess.  It was more difficult to make a "great movie" back then, because it actually required quality acting and an intelligent, interesting script.  You couldn't pass off special fx and nudity as replacements for character development and plot.  Another highly recommended movie to round out your cinematic history.

Today is Palm Sunday...

...and as the lenten season draws to a close we prepare our hearts for the celebration of the Resurrection of Christ.  Without that fundamental truth of the Christian faith, "we are," quoth the Apostle Paul, "of all men most miserable."

With it, we have the hope of Salvation and eternal life with God in heaven.

Can't top that...later, mcm fans...
