To Kill a Mockingbird

Is it really a sin to kill a mockingbird? I think so.

My Brother  tells me that I am Classic-Challenged in my selection of movies because I have not watched many of the older movies. He told me a few weeks ago that I should watch To Kill a Mockingbird.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize, and has become a classic of modern American literature.

I do not want to spoil the movie for you, in case…..you are also Classic-Challenged.

It is a wonderful movie. I give it a 10.

The lesson I learned:

Sometimes we are afraid of the wrong things in life.

The movie is available to stream on Netflix. I hope you will take time to watch it and send me your opinion.

An Encouraging Boss

A boss bought a new BMW car. His employee congratulated and praised him. The boss said, “If you too would work hard, show sincerity, be punctual, don’t take leaves, work overtime, and meet deadlines then…”

“Then what, sir?” asked the employee eagerly.

“Then I can buy a car bigger than this!”

Kids Get In Free

A little boy came home eating a big candy bar. Seeing the candy bar, his mother remembered he had already spent all his allowance money. Surprised, she asked him where he got it.

“I bought it at the store with the dollar you gave me,” he said.

“But that dollar was for Sunday School,” his mother replied.

Smiling, the boy said, “I know, Mom, but the Pastor met me at the door and got me in for free!”
