"Walk the Line"
I have been dying to see "Walk the Line" since I first saw it advertised. I'm not a Johnny Cash fan but I am a fan of Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon. I finally got to see the film this week and I really enjoyed it. You don't have to be a fan of the music to really enjoy it. It is really a love story. Johnny's love for his brother, music and then June Carter. Then if you are like me you might grow to like the music. I found it really catchy and had to go out and buy the soundtrack. I couldn't believe that it was really Phoenix who was singing on those tracks. Reese was easier to recognise. I have since bought an album by Johnny Cash and I'm also considering buying his autobiography which is supposed to be really good. If you haven't seen the film then I highly recommend it.
Hi Lili, I think the only snowmen you will see from me this year are of the stitched variety. Yep, I actually managed to do some stitching yesterday. The sign is now completely finished with the snow on top of it. I stitched the second little bird on gramps' hat. Then I stitched the hat of grandson #2 and about half his face. I hope to finish his face on my next snowman day which will be Monday. Today I am going to do some more stitching and I will be working on Bugs. So look out for another update either tomorrow or Monday.
I have already noticed that good movies could make me listen to the most unlikely music for me... and enjoy it! I'm also a fan of musicals... wonder why, really...
I wish history lessons at school had been sung, I would be much more informed now... I just couldn't listen, my mind kept wandering, like when there are car races in movies, I just can't follow that stuff... whereas I remember every single word of songs I have liked and not listened for years! (and I sing awfully!).
Looking forward to see Bugs!
Lots of hugs!
The Snowmen are really coming along now. Can't wait to see the last grandchild.
