Newsletter and jokes 13 December 2019

Hi all 
So the country officially enters holiday time for most people, while we 
give thanks to all those still manning the tills for festive and end-of-year  
As per usual at this time of the year, we have fewer but usually bigger 
releases, like Frozen II last week, which produced some local records and  
should continue to do well. 
First up this week is the family film Jumanji: The Next Level, which opened 
yesterday, and is showing in all formats. Given the "big adventure" style, 
it should look best on the bigger screens. 
The only other mainstream release this week is the British arthouse  
whistle-blower thriller, directed by award-winning SA director Gavin Hood,  
namely Official Secrets.  
Bollywood has two offerings, the mystery thriller The Body, and crime 
thriller sequel Mardaani 2. 
And yes, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens next weekend, and there are 
previews/premieres at many places on Thursday night... check the previews 
page and remember to book :-) 
Also on circuit we have the opera Akhnaten at the Nouveaus and similar, 
The Nutcracker at Killarney Mall, and filmed theatre Present Laughter at  
the Nouveaus. 
Take care over the long weekend :-) 
Enjoy :-)

Our seventeen-year-old daughter was going by bus to a soccer tournament in  
Delaware and she’d packed more baggage than Noah.  
As I was hauling it out of the trunk, I sarcastically remarked,  
“Oh, Erica, we forgot the kitchen sink!” 
Another father chimed in: “It’s okay. Ashley has one — they can share.” 
My thirteen-year-old son, Waylon, had been playing a lot of hockey games,  
and one Sunday we attended church before his next game.  
We knew Waylon had been on the rink too much when, at the end of the  
service, as we lined up to greet the pastor, he shook the pastor’s hand and 
said, “Good game.” 
The rules of rugby and the plot of The Godfather are the two most  
complicated things that every guy understands no matter how dumb he is. 
Golf is a game in which you yell “fore,” shoot six, and write down five. 
They say that nobody is perfect.  
Then they tell you practice makes perfect.  
I wish they’d make up their minds. 
Not quite grasping the sanctity of “Hockey Night in Canada,” I plunked  
myself next to my new husband one Saturday night to chat.  
He was distracted by the action on TV, and after being shushed a few times,  
I gave him a “look.”  
Immediately contrite, he picked up the remote.  
“I’m sorry, honey,” he apologized, “I’m being rude. You go ahead and talk — 
I’ll just turn up the volume.” 
One afternoon I was watching a football game when my wife, Sophia, asked,  
“Sweetheart, can you help me with the dishes?” 
Lazy as I am, I called to five-year-old Jase,  
“Son, go help Mommy with the dishes. You’ll need the skills in the future  
to help your wife with the chores.” 
“Why?” he asked, “I can just let my son do them for me!” 
When our son was about four months old, I caught sight of my husband in  
another room, holding the baby on his lap, talking to him and pointing.  
I was touched by this father/son bonding, and went into the room to  
“Rugby,” my husband said slowly, pointing to the TV. “This is rugby.”
