Today was the 'Blessing of the Animals' service at our church. Last year, we took Barley but now he's gone and that was very sad. But there were tons of dogs there...probably 30 or more of them...as well as at least one cat, ferret, fish, bunny. It was awesome. All the animals were so well-behaved. They sat there calmly and didn't fuss. Everyone was out meeting and greeting in the courtyard after the service and that was fun, too. People came from all around, too, not just the neighborhood.
We saw The Brothers Grimm last night. Very odd movie. Very violent...don't take young kids. We had a family with young kids sitting beside us who left about 20 minutes into the film. Those kids will probably suffer with nightmares for weeks! The movie left me hot and cold. Some of it I really liked but it was oddly disjointed and the acting was weak. Save it for video, folks.
Bonnie is starting classes tomorrow and seems sorry that here idyllic summer has ended. Though she is happy to see all her friends again, she is going to miss the quiet of Hamilton in the summer. She said that she got so overwhelmed greeting everyone coming in yesterday, that she had to go and have a lie-down later. Funny girl!
