Earlier in the week 2 of my friends and I planned on going to see Life of Pi at the "cheap" theater on Friday. But due to circumstances both had to cancel leaving me with the decision...do I go alone or skip it? I opted to go alone...there were so many people in the audience I certainly didn't feel alone. If you have not seen this movie I urge you to go BEFORE it leaves the theater. It is a feast for the eyes....the beauty is breathtaking, the scenes, the colors, the animals on land, the fish in the sea, the skies both calm & stormy. I could have stayed for another viewing immediately after to relish in the beauty a second time. It is an amazing story in itself, but the beauty of this movie is not only the story but the visual impact it delivers. Go see it, one of the best movies I have seen in a long time.
And speaking of animals....last night my Toby jumped up on the couch and snuggled next to me as I sat watching TV, something he does regularly. But this time there was a definite unpleasant smell that accompanied him. Checking further I discovered, something clinging to his rear end. Now, I am not going into detail with any further description, but needless to say we headed to the bathroom for a late-night shampoo in the tub. Smelling better and definitely cleaner Toby raced around the house, running so fast I thought surely he would drop from exhaustion. Why do dogs do that after getting a bath? All I want after taking a nice bath is to put on my jammies and curl up in bed, not race around the house. Does your dog do this?? This week has been a week of removal for my Toby, first it was the burr on his head that covered his eye, now this...both of the events unpleasant for both man & beast.
