This morning I was the first one up and went about feeding dogs and putting them out for the day. The puppy still gets so excited to see someone in the morning, and so excited that it's time to eat, that it's a bit frantic the first few minutes. I finally got him out of his kennel and took him out in the yard. As he ran about, exploring every blade of grass in between running back to me to make sure that I wasn't going anywhere, I shivered in my sweatshirt and took in the beauty of the early morning hours. There's been a woodpecker in our back yard the past few days, and I can hear him, but just can't put my eyes on him. I'm always amazed at how little those guys are, for all the noise and racket they put out.
As is our custom on Sunday mornings, Dan and I watched the CBS Sunday Morning. There was a wonderful segment about Julie Andrews and her career and life story. The first movie I ever saw in a theatre was "Mary Poppins." It was 1964, and we were spending Easter with my aunt and uncle in Syracuse, New York. The show enchanted me. For my birthday that year, my mom made me a cake that looked like Mary Poppins' hat. It was was covered in coconut and had a cluster of cherries on one side.
So, here's a question for you? What was the first movie you ever saw in a theatre? What year was it?
