An Old Farmer’s Advice
Words that soak into your ears are
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Every path has a few puddles.
If you find yourself in a hole,
the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
A good time to keep your mouth shut
is when you’re in deep water.
Good judgment comes from experience,
and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

September Movies Thursdays 7 PM
September 3: The Dish 2000/101 min
It’s the biggest event since sheep invented wool! Apollo 11’s astronauts will walk on the moon—and the 1,000-ton satellite dish in tiny, sheep-farming Parkes, Australia, will beam that historic first step around the globe. But as giddy citizens prepare for the moment when the entire world will depend on them, the dish flatlines. And its unconventional Aussie crew and its by-the-book NASA supervisor from the U.S. have very different ideas about how to fix it. A culture clash of cosmic proportions erupts in this fact-based tale of how the biggest televised event in history was almost not televised. The Dish, with Sam Neill, Patrick Warburton and others in a skilled ensemble portraying a spirited array of techies and townies, “will send you to the moon and back laughing.”
September 10: Labor Day 2013/111 min
From director Jason Reitman, Labor Day stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin as two strangers drawn together under incredible circumstances. What starts as an unforeseen encounter over a long holiday weekend soon becomes a second chance love story.
September 17 Jersey Boys 2014/134 min
Clint Eastwood’s big screen version of the award-winning musical tells the story of the four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 60s rock group The Four Seasons. Their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the hit songs that influenced a generation, and are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the
September 24: Topkapi 1964/120 min
Topkapi shimmers with hilarity, action and great performances! Fun-filled and suspenseful—a pleasure to watch. Trouble brews beneath the exotically curved towers of Istanbul when Elizabeth Lipp (Melina Mercouri) recruits her former lover (Maximilian Schell) in a scheme to heist the pride of the city’s Topkapi museum: a jewel-encrusted dagger. But the “job” soon turns into a high-tension, high wire act, when the bumbling fall guy (Peter Ustinov) and other amateurs they’ve hired as help get more than they had bargained for.
If you would like to suggest an upcoming movie (new, older, or classic), or if you own a DVD you would like to share and see on the big screen, contact Frank J.
