It was that week that I had to stay in bed, up in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. They had a VCR/DVD player that only had one movie on it. So I ended up watching Bill Murray in Groundhog Day about 30 times in one week.

Or maybe that was just a dream. . . . Or maybe I just made this up. . .😉

My favorite scene was when, at the front door of the Piano teacher, Bill Murray offered her a thousand dollars (?) for a piano lesson, and the teacher threw the little girl student out the door.

It would be a week in the late 1960's before I got totally 'drawn into' the Jehovah's Witnesses. A nice young lady from Ireland came to live in a bedsit in the house right next door to the one I lived in. The landlord owned both houses and both front doors were always open. Of course each person had the key to their own room, so no one could just walk in, but it was nice when i got invited in. Unfortunately she was a Catholic and I was just beginning to learn about Jehovah, so the 'friendship' didn't last more than a year, but it was lovely whilst it did last.

Why would you want to re-live that? (Even if it was a dream or you made it up).

Hope your wife isn't reading this!

Is it a must see?

No. It is a must-avoid.

Actually, it is sort of cute. It is not a must-see, but it is a movie you would probably enjoy.

We have some good friends in that circuit, who tell us

A) that there is a congregation in Punxsutawney, and 

B) you never saw such a tacky place in your life, with every interest imaginable cashing in on the legend.

Money is the catalyst that changes all people.

Especially as in the case of Prognosticators.

I avoided the movie for several decades, reasoning "I don't want to go see a movie about a fake prophet stupid groundhog !" ... but it is an adorable move, with a LOT of subtle, low key, but memorable comedy moments, and several important insights.

I have seen the movie "Groundhog day"  about four times.

It has helped make me the man I am today!

Also, I think it will help make sense of my post.

Yes, I read a brief synopsis and I see where you are coming from. It sounds like the kind of movie I would enjoy. Have to see if Netflix has it...

You certainly do come out of your hole to prognosticate a lot.

I was baptized in August 1977 and the years from 1976 thru 1980 were the best years of my life because of the brilliant journey of discovery I was on learning about Jehovah and Jesus. These were the happyist years of my life and would relive them if I could. I thank Jehovah and bless that day in early 1976 when a sister dropped a tract into my letterbox because it changed my life totally.

I am still a witness.

I liken making that “journey of discovery” to assembling the 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle and reproducing the mountain vista on the box cover. Having done this, you are pretty much immune to the critic who comes along later and says you did it wrong. You are especially immune if that critic’s own puzzle lies boxed and unassembled on his closet shelf.

And when you are cruising down the highway at 60 MPH, you are pretty much immune to the atheist on the radio telling you that your car doesn’t run.

If you could pick one moment (like a week) to relive over and over for the rest of your life which week would it be?

Many years ago, when a group of boys and girls,  used to sit watching the sunset at a public park, or just talking about everything after playing soccer or basketball. We did not have internet, not even  at  homes,  a few of us  had cellphones, no one was married, no one had debts... 😃

If I could re-live in a "moment"... It would be when I was 18 and so happy to be Baptized.
