The Call of the Wild
Happy Monday to you! Yesterday was a cold and dreary day, so hubby and I decided to go to the movies. We usually go on Tuesday's during the winter, but haven't seen any lately that drew us in-until yesterday. You all know what a dog lover I am, so this was a must see. I believe my girls and I read this book decades ago, but I really didn't remember the story. It was such a good movie, despite Buck being animated as well as the other sled dogs and Timber Wolves. It didn't hurt that the setting was Alaska-a state hubby and I love. I will be honest, the only thing that kept me from crying was that they weren't real dogs. A good friend went with her hubby to a later showing and she did cry. The robotic/animation has gotten so good that at times it was hard to remember the dogs weren't real-especially when they were about to be mistreated. I'm sure if I go back and reread the story now, the movie may disappoint-but it was good just the same.
So if you are looking for a good flick on some cold day, go see this one. Harrison Ford is fantastic and never disappoints.
Tomorrow hubby and I are heading down to Boulder to meet a friend that I haven't seen in 28 years. We both left Silicon Valley at the same time; we headed to Sonoma County and they headed back to Indiana. She was such a pivotal woman/mentor in my life when I was a young mom; I can't wait to meet her for lunch and catch up.
Hope you are all having a great day!
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
