How do I describe this blog?
A line from the movie "Old School" with a small tweak.
"My friends, this is a safe place. A place where we can feel free sharing our feelings. Think of my blog as a nest in a tree of trust and understanding. We can say anything here."

Eat, Drink and Be Murray
Kyle and I watched "Ghostbusters" and "Ghostbusters II" this week.
And it was good.
I hadn't watched the original "Ghostbusters" in a long, long time so it was fun watching it with my favorite 9-year-old.
The best part of the experience was when we both giggled a lot at one scene.
I will share it with you:
Did you laugh too?
Or is this just a Shifley boy thing?
I was a little surprised at how much Kyle laughed because I thought it would be a little much for him but he laughed right on cue.
Mrs. Shife and I are also careful about how much exposure he gets to this sort of language and remind him that since he's not an adult, he can't talk like this.
It's a fine line these days since vulgarity and curse words seem to be more the norm.
As much as I loved having a moment with Kyle during "Ghostbusters," I had a much better time watching "Ghostbusters II" with him because he gave me the greatest compliment he has ever given me during our time together. He watched the following scene:
Then said this:
"He reminds me of you, Dad."
I paused the movie and said, "What?"
"Venkman (Bill Murray's character) reminds me of you."
"Are you kidding me right now, Kyle?" I said. "That is the most amazing thing you have said to me."
And I then rushed into the bedroom to tell Mrs. Shife the news.
Bill Murray has always been one of my favorites ever since I watched "Stripes" so to hear my son tell me what he told me was pretty awesome.
Yes, again, this blog post is all about me and my needs. =)
Thanks for stopping by. Talk to you soon.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
