Texas trip - 6

Wednesday, April 4th, began in a dark and foreboding manner, promising much wet stuff. In spite of this, OD and I went out for a walk, striving to get a bit of exercise. We had only been back inside for a short while when the earlier promises came to fruition and we had a mini-monsoon. It continued to rain to one degree or another most all day. OD had planned an outing with a couple of stops but the wetness put the stoppage on that. We stayed in and watched a DVD she had rented – “Happy Feet” – it was enjoyed by all, young and old.

On a wet and dreary day that would be a good occasion for a nap, the writer sat instead, striving to grasp random words and thoughts and compose them into an order that would make sense to someone else. The problem with that would be, what makes sense to one may not to another and the writer might slowly meander off down a nonsensical path and no one follows. Could this be the road identified as the one less traveled? Or could it be the path that all are on and nobody knows the others are there?

Then how could we make sense of things unless we could sense that others were there on the path of life by our senses? But if the path of which I speak is one of the mind, and we are on another frequency, we may indeed be alone. How would we know though unless we had some form of frequency identification – such as communications? But so many that think they are communicating are not, because their efforts are not understood. Worse still is that they may be misunderstood, because what they sent out in some form of language is not received in the way it was meant to be received – hope that clears all this up.

Anyway, back to Texas, while out to get us some steaks to grill, OD rented another movie – "Eragon". The steaks were grilled, sides prepared and we consumed the evening meal with great relish – this relish was the feeling and not the condiment. After cleaning up and putting down GM5 for the night, the other 5 of us watched this fanciful movie. Seems to be along the lines of “Lord of the Rings” and even though it was fair, it didn’t seem to quite match up. I understand there are supposed to be a couple of sequels to this tale as well.

After the movie, efforts were made at memory processing and recording same, but the hour was late, the writer was tired and his place of repose for the evening was softly calling to him. Prep for this repose was made, back stretching exercises were done and further memory processing was done behind closed eyelids. In spite of the rain, the day was still good and thanks were given to the One who made the day and made the experiences possible. ec

My 7 yr old saw Happy Feet at a church sleepover party and he loved it.

My 9 yr old is a huge Eragon fan! He read the book, and the next one as well, titled Eldest. Yes, the movie fell short of the book.

Kila - I found myself wishing that I had seen both of these on the big screen instead of DVD. I didn't read the book, but I would have guessed that Eragon the movie fell short. ec

The girls saw Happy Feet at the theater and loved it. We'll probably buy the dvd. We rented Eragon for Elcie and just mailed it back to Blockbuster. She like that one too.

Thanks for your comment today.

Granny - We have seen more movies this week than we have all year but I guess that is what time away is for. We saw another movie last night at the theater - "Meet the Robinsons" - it was a hoot!

Bonita - We are having a great time in Texas with the kids but our airline tickets dictate that we travel back on Easter Sunday. That is not great but all else is good. ec
