365 Reasons to Smile – Day 32

One of the greatest benefits of the internet is how it my links my own youth to that of my children’s.

When I’m talking about a movie or a television show and they give me a blank look, I can usually conduct an internet search and find a video, a photo or at least a description that serves as a great explanation.

Even better are the times when they discover something from my youth and ac t as though it is something completely new.

Recently, my daughter giggled and insisted I watch a clip from the movie This is Spinal Tap. 

The first time I saw the scene I was actually in the theater, but watching it with my daughter was even better.

The Stonehenge scene always makes me smile.
