There are some evenings that will linger in our minds and lives till the day we die. Little League Championships, graduations, weddings, births. Those sorts of things are only natural, but once in awhile an evening sneaks up on you and lifts you up from the most unlikely places.
Sunday night, My First Wife and I got caught up in four hours of mighty fine television.
First, we ran across a new show called “Secret Millionaire.” Danny Johnson (Dannie?) was the star of this edition. She’s a self-made millionaire who went back to her roots (homelessness) and shared some of her $$$ with “helping/sharing” services in Knoxville TN. It was touching, uplifting, inspirational and refreshing TV.
Right behind that was “Undercover Boss.” The mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio donned a wig and facial hair to visit his city workers undetected. He’s a man who appears to have a heart. It was a heart-warming show this week.
And then—surprise! “Les Misèrables!” We love “Les Misèrables!” We found it on PBS. It was the 25th Anniversary edition and was it ever great! Did you get to see it? There are things that echo in your mind all through the years. The music of Les Miz is one of those things for me. I could listen to it day after day after day.
I have a feeling that this evening will rank among the most enjoyable we ever spent at home together. Do you think...One Day More?
