As you know, if you read the last post, Mom, Mary and I went out tonight to see Walk The Line. Mom has not been to the theatre for 13 years! She seemed pretty shocked at the size of our AMC 20 and she loved the stadium seating. We had a great time munching popcorn. I accidentally dropped my coke updside down on her shoe, during the show! The movie was really enjoyable. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon did a great job singing and acting the part of Johnny and June. They were very believable. It ended right after they married and I would have loved to have seen much more. I wasn’t ready for it to be over. Johnny’s life and their relationship, before they were married, was very tumultuous. I wanted to see their life after the really rocky times, too. It was a great night at the movies!
Mom said that one of the last times she went to see a movie, she was with my dad (they are divorced now). My dad was with a friend and they both brought whiskey bottles with them and were pouring it into their cokes!! Dad dropped his and it slid under the seats in front of him. I thought that was kind of a funny story. My dad is not what I would consider a heavy drinker or anything, but he is a rebel, although over the years he’s become much softer and tamer.
