Awesome Movie!

LAST night I had time alone and watched the DVD of "Revolutionary Road."
Wow! I was in another world after the movie ended. (Don't even think of watching this one if ... .) Well, I can't say anything. I just hate it when folks give away what the movie's about.
So, suffice it to say that Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio, Sam Mendes and the screenplay author - Justin Haythe - based on Richard Yates' book, did a great job. In my eyes, anyway. I sometimes go and read Rotten Tomatoes Web site and see what others liked or objected to. Surprising. I am still thinking about the movie and the dialogue and the ideas it presented.
Tomorrow we're going camping in the woods and it's been raining off and on all day today (Friday). Things don't look promising, but we'll go anyway. Build a big fire and toast our toes. Bring the waterproof tarps and laugh at the weather - femminismo

We went camping too! And Skylar picked the number for the winner for the 5 prints and you are it!

Send me your address to and I will get them in the mail to you.

We camped on the Washington coast, at Westport and it was surprisingly nice. How was yours?

Hi there, Pal.
Well, your package was located and has been re-sent. WHAT THE--??? This has happened one other time and I just don't get it. Then again, it's the gummint...

Read "Rev.Road" some years ago as I was reading certain books and that one had come up. Incredible experience.
Good luck on that camping and hope you stay high and dry! It's 102 here. ick...
