Margaret as Henry V

I promise Margaret isn't a favorite child. She's just been the star of my last three posts. And since I'm talking about her already, here's another one. The kids were watching Star Wars Return of the Jedi for the first time the other day. They were at the part where Luke was pleading with his father, Darth Vader, to abandon his evil ways. Darth Vader was struggling, "Luke, you don't know the power of the Dark Side..." Margaret said pitifully, "Can't he just give him a hug?"

These are things I need to remember.

So I'm watching the last part of Gone with the Wind with the girls. We're at the very last part of the movie: "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." And Rhett Butler walks off into the mist. We're all teary and, like Scarlett, we (even though I've seen it fifty thousand times) can't believe he's really leaving. Scarlett says breathily, "There must be some way to bring him back..."

Margaret whispers, "Were cell phones invented back then?"

Christ is Risen!

Margaret discovered that Fr Mark had a list where people could sign up to read the Gospel on Pascha. She saw that there were people signed up for Russian, Ukranian, Serbian, Spanish, German, etc. Margaret was hoping she could sign up for something too, but she doesn't know another language.

So she offered, "Mom, can I sign up for 'British accent?'"

Alas, I had to say no.

Indeed He is Risen!!
