Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. Went to a movie for the first time for quite a while and saw the new Disney “The Lion King.” This is a remake of the first one but there is no comparison. The first was drawn as a cartoon, this one is made as if the animals were very real. The animation was seamless, and the scenery was rich in dimension and detail. You could call this a kid’s movie but there were far more adults than kids at this presentation. One other plus, we went to a new theater and we were treated to real leather reclining seats. I have watched movies in high back seats, and even seats that rocked a bit, but this was the first time I have actually sat fully reclined with feet up in the air. It was like watching the movie in your own home. They even had a little tray that swivel on the arm of the chair that allowed you to put your popcorn and water. One thing for sure, you do not want to go there if you are even a bit tired, because you will find yourself “lights out” before the end of the previews. I only caught bits and pieces of the Mueller report, but it was like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. However, if you did not get enough, you can buy the full report and read it at your leisure in bed while trying to fall asleep. A quick look at Amazon shows you can get the paperback for the low price of just $7.20, or the large print version for $13.17; not to be outdone, you can buy the official version from the Department of Justice for just $26.55 plus shipping and handling. This is just one example of how our government spends so much of our hard-earned tax dollars. The question we face now…will there be a sequel? I think we are on number three already!
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“Let go of things you cannot change and focus on things you can.” Dogpound Wisdom
My neighbor put up a sign in the yard that they had a drum set for sale. I put up a sign in my yard the next day saying…”YEA!”
Overheard: I use to have an hourglass figure. Unfortunately, the sands shifted.
A man bought a parrot at an auction after a rather spirited bidding war. After the successful bid the buyer asked the auctioneer if the bird talked…especially after the price he just paid for him. “Talk?” the auctioneer replied, “He was the one who was bidding against you!”
A man enters a barber shop for a shave. While the barber is foaming him up, he mentions the problems he has getting a close shave around the cheeks. “I have just the thing,” says the barber taking a small wooden ball from a nearby drawer. “Just place this between your cheek and gum.” The client places the ball in his mouth and the barber proceeds with the closest shave the man has ever experienced. After a few strokes the client asks in garbled speech. “And what if I swallow it?” “No problem,” says the barber. “Just bring it back tomorrow like everyone else does.”
That is all I have for today. As always be good, do good, play safe, and remember that life is full of choices, choose wisely.
