Movie and a Book Review Time!

Saturday, November 8, 2008
I went to see a fabulous movie today, "The Changeling" with Angelina Jolie. I didn't realize that Clint Eastwood was the director until the movie credits rolled at the end, but I should have known. What a great movie! It was based on a true story that happened in Los Angeles, cira 1928. I don't want to give too many details because I highly recommend you seeing this movie. But, I will tell you that the main storyline revolves around the kidnapping of a little boy and the corrupt LA police trying to cover their own butts by not doing a good job in solving his case. I give it 8 puppy paws up!



Now, for the book...
One of the women in our P.E.O. group started up a book club. Our first book "assignment" was "Chasing Harry Winston" by Lauren Weisberger. She is also the author of "The Devil Wears Prada." I never read that book, but I really liked the movie. Now for the review...well...the cover was very pretty and shiny, I really, really liked the cover.


OK, I did like the story a bit also. It follows three, almost thirty-something women who live in New York and love the New York life and all it has to offer. I guess I should have taken a little time trying to figure out what the book was about before I started reading. I thought "Harry Winston" was a man. Rod told me it was a jeweler...enough said.

I thought I'd also show you a picture of Asa, the "lap" dog.



And, just so he wouldn't feel left out, here's a picture of Haver, "Mr. Fatty-Fatty-Bo-Batty."



Thanks for reading.

p.s. Don't forget that November is Pulmonary Hypertension awareness month. I'm very aware. In fact, I'm so aware that I'm going to go mix my Flolan for the night.

This is what my pump looks like. I'm not holding it, I found this picture online. I'm going to try to get you informed and all "schooled" in Flolan and pulmonary hypertension before awareness month is finished.

Thanks for reading, again.
