Atlas Shrugged, Part 2 -- Sat., Oct. 13

This morning Bob went on a 16-mile walk in his quest to be ready for the Honolulu Marathon on Dec. 9. The trail he checked out today was the South Salado Creek Trail. He said there are a lot of parks along the trail.

When he got back we headed out to see "Atlas Shrugged, Part II." For those of you who don't know, Bob and I met through a personal ad in a Portland newspaper. His ad used characters from the novel. I was reading the novel for the second time when I saw and answered his ad.

While we enjoyed the two movies, they can't compare to the novel which is over 1,000 pages. If you haven't read the novel, you may pick up on what the movies are about, but you would understand it much better if you read the book. We also do not care for some of the actors portraying characters in the novel. Overall, I'd give it a C. It's like a shorthand or Reader's Digest version of the novel.

Other than that, it's been a quiet day.

Bob is watching Timberwolves basketball because the team has players and a coach who he used to enjoy watching in Oregon. Now he's watching them from our 5er in Texas.

On Tuesday, I have an appointment with a D.D.S. to talk about the plan for my teeth once the wires and bands come out.
