Beach Movies, Westerns, Elvis... Whatever it Takes to Keep from Going Mad
The world has gone stark-raving mad. But you already knew that, didn’t you? Everyone has their own way of “coping” also known as “sanity preservation.” Some, like my oldest daughter, read anything and everything they can get their hands on.
Others watch sports – anything in season.
While my husband and I are certainly proud members of the “sports watching” club, we also LOVE to escape with a great old movie. We love Westerns, Frankie and Annette movies, Elvis movies, and certainly anything Abbott and Costello get into.
Yesterday, while searching for something on my Direct TV guide, I noticed a couple of Frankie and Annette movies on back to back. Since my husband was at work, I recorded both of them and can’t wait until we’re comfortably sitting on the sofa, snacks in hand and our spoiled cat, Alexa, nearby…. all watching the fun and mayhem while forgetting the horrors we see in the news – even if it’s just for a few hours.
By ALL means, we should all keep the world (and that’s all of us) in our prayers, but any time we can “get away” to a simpler time… well, I think it’s just a healthy thing to do.
If you don’t have a collection of your own of fun, classic movies, begin collecting them on Amazon – then they’ll be ready when you are. If you have Direct TV, search the guide for your favorite movies and record them.
