A Trip & A Movie

Saturday I had this bright idea to go do something with the family. Something so we could get out of the house for a little while. At first, I was thinking of going to Lincoln’s birthplace and all that jazz, but it’s about 3 hours away and we needed something a little bit closer. So I decided that we would go to Mammoth Cave and hike some trails and picnic. Whose bright idea was that again? Oh yea….mine. Today, however, I am saying, what was I thinking? I know we walked way more than a mile and my legs are killing me, but not as bad as I thought they would. I can’t think of a better way to spend a beautiful Sunday then to be out in nature. We saw deer, squirrels, a cute little wormy caterpillery thingy, turkeys, butterflies, people in canoes, dogs…no cats though, caves and all sorts of manner of plants. It was nice. It was peaceful. It was free. I want to go again.

After all that, we came home, I cooked some jambalaya, and we sat down for a great family film. “Shutter”. It was a pretty good movie, BUT…there is always a but, right? It was a lot like “The Grudge”. I know this is a remake of an Asian version of the film from 2004 and I’d like to see that version too. I like these movies because they aren’t like American horror movies. Horror movies here usually have lots of blood, gore, sex, language and that kind of thing. This movie isn’t like that at all. I think there was like one curse word in the whole movie. There are a couple of scenes that are a little gross, but not over the top and only briefly. Click here for more info from IMDB.

  1. The whole Mammoth Cave thing sounded good to me too- until I realized I would have to be standing up and walking… then I was over it. πŸ™‚ I'll sit in the back yard and watch the deer come drink out of my swimming pool πŸ™‚

  2. We also took a hike yesterday, at the park there are nature trails that wind around way back into the woods…we too saw a squirrel (possibly the meanest looking squirrel ever) and a swamp-pond thingee, and then a phantom branch fell from the tip-top of the tree and hit me in the shoulder, tearing my shirt, cutting my arm and making me scream profanities. Ahh…peaceful.
