Did you hear about the $42 million dollars this movie earned this past weekend?
$15.00 of it was my money.
My daughter Kate was home for the Thanksgiving weekend
and like many other Americans, we went to the movies.
I'm afraid we both enjoy deriding the TWILIGHT SAGA,
(books and movies),
but we were right there with everyone else
to see the latest installment.
I only made it through the first book, but Kate has
read them all and enjoys telling me the many ways
the books fail as well written books.
She scoffs at the movies and
takes the attitude she's only seeing them
to give her poor old Mom someone to go with.
I myself have enjoyed the movies.
They are what they are.
Pure entertainment and fantasy.
Since I haven't read past the first book,
it's all an unfolding story to me.
And, if nothing else,
sitting and watching such pretty people,
vampires and werewolves not withstanding,
is a fun way to spend a couple of hours.
