Yesterday on my trip to the 'big town' I decided that a movie was in order. I chose War Horse.
It was moving and beautiful. I want to visit England now more than ever, the countryside was breathtaking. The acting was excellent, human and equine. I will tell you though, that because it is set in WWI, there are some scenes that are tragic but well in keeping with the story line of a war. I would not take a child under twelve to see it. The relationship that the horse has with its different 'masters' is moving, a very well trained animal he was. If you, like Hank, are concerned that Joey, the horse, dies I'll tell you that he doesn't but there are other horses that do, don't let that keep you from seeing this wonderful movie.
Oh, you know how I'm back in the exercise saddle? I thought it would be okay to have some popcorn with my movie, tradition ya know. Well exercise karma must be keeping an eye on me because this happened
I'd just sat down, was balancing the popcorn on my legs while I put the straw in my small drink and BAM, popcorn on the floor. All of it. My habit is to eat the popcorn during the previews, as it was, I had nothing. I was bummed. Oh well, I've read that movie popcorn isn't that good for you anyway.
