Into the Wild

Knitting Hubby and I went to see Into the Wild this afternoon. Deep dark but I liked it. We had to wait a month for it to show up here and figured it won’t be here for long. The executive producer John Kelly and his girlfriend were our seat mates on our full day trip into Denali Park during our vacation and the only ones that could figure out if the bus stopped – open the windows!!

Other knit bloggers are listing the top 100 movies and what ones they’ve seen. I’ve done mine with a little twist.

    I’ll have to wait for ITW to come out on Netflix. With all the kidlets it’s too expensive to go to a movie or hire a babysitter. Anyway, it will be put into our queue today. Cheers!

    A new look for your blog! I had to check the URL to be sure I was in the right place. It looks great — easier for my aging eyes to read, too.
