    Good afternoon, everyone. I just got back from hiking and window shopping in Prescott. I heart Prescott, Arizona. I always leave there smiling.

    Phoenix feels like Hell. We have been under a heat advisory for several days and it continues through Saturday night.

    My vacation is coming to an end and I am feeling sad about this. But it's been a great week.

    TOTD: I love Mystery Science Theater....they found some of the most obscure and terrible films out there and made them enjoyable.

    Excellent job, Linda.

    I have to take some kind of online test and I'm nervous because I don't really know what to expect.


    TOTD: I can't think of any obscure movies. DS mentioned Dog Soldiers. I really liked that one but I'm not sure it's really obscure.

    TOTD: Obscure movie?

    Birdy - 1984.

    It's not for everyone...it's a drama... but it's got two fantastic acting jobs by Nicolas Cage and Matthew Modine. And I mentioned here in another thread that it's got one of the best endings of any film I ever watched.

    Current Electric Bill was a little over a Hundred dollars. Next one probably will be about $200.

    This evening I'm going to watch "The Death and Life of Bobby Z"

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Zeus, you just brought back memories. I used to live on Large Street on Fort Hood. Copperas Cove, Harker Heights, all are very familiar!

    Not a movie person and I never rent - I am too bad to build up late fees.
    I recently bought The Spitfire Grill, .
    Another obscure one is The World of Henry Orient.

    Movies I treasure are [URL="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086423/"]Tender Mercies[/URL], Cross Creek and my Julia Roberts collection.:o
    Both excellent choices, LL.

    Have you seen the "extras" for Tender Mercies and Cross Creek? There are some fascinating background stories.The little boy in Tender Mercies never made another movie but remained friends with Robert Duvall and is now a youth minister (I have corresponded with him). Duvall gave him a guitar and came to his birthday party.

    Norton Baskin (Rawlings husband and the Coyote character) was the man in the rocking chair.
