My Saturday Matinee

I have gotten into the habit of posting a little video each Saturday. It reminds me of the traditional Saturday Matinee when I was a child. Each Saturday, the theatres showed an early viewing for families with kids. I am sure some of you remember this special event.

With that in mind, I have kept up my own Saturday Matinee, so as to leave something fun or meaningful (or both) while I am away from my computer. Saturdays are for family errands and chores. On Saturday nights, Bill often plays music. Sundays are for going to Mass, spending time together, and getting Bill ready for the Road.

Most of you know I am a serious Monthy Python fan. I am also a devoted Muppet fan. The two, together, is pure fun! But, this video also has a message. The best-laid plans do not always come together. Sometimes our plans are altered by others’, or by circumstances beyond our control. No matter how we try to fix them, things may just not come together as we planned it.

However, usually, it all still comes out fine! Sometimes, those other factors make things even more special, more fun, or somehow, even better than what we imagined. And, if not, it usually works out, anyway…just as it is meant to.

Make it a great weekend! See you soon!

  1. That was hilarious…….I was a truly dedicated Monty Python fan back in the day and what a great combination Cleese and the Muppets made – “double insanity” ! Thanks for the chuckle to start my Saturday!

    Hugs, Pam


  2. That was delightful to watch. While I was in Scotland some years ago with my three daughters, we visited the castle where Monte Phyton was filmed. I thought that you might like to know.
    Yes, things do work itself out in the end.
    Hugs, Julia


    • Oh, my…12 years ago you became aware of Monty Python?! I cannot even imagine!

      SNL was best in the 70s, when it was new and really funny. The humour was actually funny and not entirely tasteless, as it is now. Everyone got their share of being spoofed, but it was not mean-spirited. The original cast was exceptional. Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Belushi, Laraine Newman, Chevy Chase, etc.

      It was then that Monty Python’s Flying Circus was also on TV (PBS) and very funny. I was a big fan of both! I hope you enjoyed this video. Hugs!
