The Greatest Movie Ever Made

Today was an awesome day!  We woke up early, had a great breakfast with my parents at the Nautilus Diner in Crofton, MD, including a great mushroom omelet, and I sent my daughter off with her grandparents for the day.

I headed home for some time with Faithful Pup Scout, then I went to the AFI Silver Theater in downtown Silver Spring for an annual showing of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE!  The drive over to the theater was beautiful with snow falling and gray skies.  It felt like winter, but looked like Christmas!  The film was fantastic, as usual.  There's a reason it's number one on my list of favorite movies.  And no matter how many time I've seen it (and I know I must be in the fifties on viewings), it still brings a tear to my eye at the end.  If you have never seen this movie, it really is one of those must see movies.  Seeing it on the big screen with a very appreciable audience makes it even better.

I went straight from the theater to my church's Saturday service, and was pleasantly surprised to see Pastor Mark preaching tonight.  He has been laid up after successful heart bypass surgery, and seeing him up and around and preaching was awesome.  After the service, he approached me to ask how things were going for me, and, as usual, he got all of the questions in before I could ask him about how he was doing, and a crowd had gathered to speak to him.  I'm sure he's tired of answering questions about himself, but he is so unselfish.  I wish we had more time to chat.

I started to leave and began to feel a bit nauseous.  I needed to eat something, but it's hard to work up an appetite when you're not feeling well.  Stupid diabetes.  I went home and really crashed, but not before eating a bowl of cold cereal.  That seemed to help.  I know I couldn't eat a heavy meal.  However, after finishing and going into the kitchen, I had another one of those dizzy spells that have been plaguing me recently.  When I jump up too fast, the room will start to spin and my eyes will cloud over.  If I don't sit down or brace myself, I feel like I could pass out.  I was fine, but it's something that has been bothering me.

I sat down again and I've spent the past couple of hours in a fog.  I'm really tired, but I was trying to watch TV.  That didn't go so well.  Scout is ready for bed, so I guess that's where I'm headed.

Have a great weekend, folks!
