Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…. 
 As my five-year-old son and I were headed to McDonald’s one
day, we passed a car accident. Usually when we see something
terrible like that, we say a prayer for those who might be
hurt, so I pointed and said to my son, “We should pray.”

From the back seat I heard his earnest request: “Please,
God, don’t let those cars block the entrance to McDonald’s.” 😳





Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “I can’t swim.”
“Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill ya.”

Answer: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid!
In the events leading up to this scene Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman), The Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) and their gang have just robbed a train. However, one of the train cars contains a posse of mounted Pinkerton detectives, who immediately give chase. The gang splits off, but the posse continues to trail Butch and Sundance up in mountainous country. When they are confronted by a steep drop off to a river, Sundance prepares to fight to the death. Butch suggests they instead jump and Sundance says no. When Butch persists, Sundance says the first line. An amused Butch replies with the second. Newman and Redford really did leap off a facsimile of the cliff but they landed on a mattress roughly six feet below. The actual death-defying jump was made by stunt men (although they actually are filmed jumping off a large crane into a lake). In the 1970 Academy Awards, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” was nominated in seven categories, including Best Picture (but lost to “Midnight Cowboy”). It did win four Oscars.
