Hi everybody. So the last few days I have watched several movies but only 2 truly stand out as great. I am going to share my take on both if them in the next few days. First up, A Dog’s Purpose. 

Now unless you live under a rock, you had to have heard of this movie. Whether it be the emotional turmoil of the plot or perhaps the controversial aspects such as animal cruelty. Either way this movie made headlines. And after watching it, it made it’s way into my heart. 

Starring roles include:

DENNIS QUAID


BRIT ROBERTSON


JOSH GAD


Here’s a quick look inside the plot if the movie. 

A devoted dog (Josh Gad) discovers the meaning of its own existence through the lives of the humans it teaches to laugh and love. Reincarnated as multiple canines over the course of five decades, the lovable pooch develops an unbreakable bond with a kindred spirit named Ethan. As the boy grows older and comes to a crossroad, the dog once again comes back into his life to remind him of his true self.

This movie had it all. Happiness, joy, love, laughter, sorrow, anger, heartbreak. At times, I adored the characters and other times I grew so frustrated with them I nearly began giving them a good chewing out. (Like they could hear me right?) I smoked, laughed, and yes, even cried. A true roller coaster of emotions.

Although it didn’t rank very high in the review category, don’t let it sway you from taking a chance on it. I loved this and who knows, you might too. So check out A Dog’s Purpose today. Enjoy!

Ode to a Computer…

Hi everyone. Today is a sad and terrible day for me. I just list a very old, very good friend. My laptop.

‘Ol Red and I have been through a lot together.

From the first day I held it in my arms 9 years ago, I felt something special. And I had such high hopes for it. I just knew it would do wonders. When it needed energy, I plugged it in. When it was sick, I took it to the doctor. I took care of ‘Ol Red.

And it did! It connected me to my family that lived far away, it played games and music and it entertained my kids and I for many years. It kept my secrets, my pictures and videos, my memories safe. It showed us the world.  But that’s not all.

‘Ol Red helped me achieve my dream to become a published author. Yes, with Red by my side, we wrote not one but two wonderful stories together.

‘Ol Red was there for me and I was there for it. When it needed energy, I plugged it in. When it was sick, I took it to the doctor. We made a great team.

But lately ‘Ol Red’s health has been steadily going down hill. First, it began to lose energy quickly and had to be plugged in more often. Then eventually, it was able to wake up on it’s own without a shot of electricity. We went on that way for a long time until today when it’s life force, the cord giving it energy, gave up the fight.

So sadly, today, January 7, 2016, I have to say goodbye to ‘ Ol Red. We’ve been through a lot together and I will never forget you. You were my first laptop and you will live in my memory forever.

Goodbye old friend….
