And a Merry Christmas to all. We do presents with the family on Christmas Eve so today was quiet. It rained pretty hard all day so we went to the movies. Saw Audrey Tautou in A Very Long Engagement
. Audrey's fiancee is missing after World War I and she is determined to find out what happened to him. Beautifully shot, it shows the horror of trench warfare in that long ago time. Also some lovely scenes in the countryside and along the coast of Brittany. I recommend it highly.
I'll be away for about six days, so don't expect any blogs. Quiet time at the cabin with some male friends with whom I have been spending the time between Chirstmas and New Years for thirty-four years. Eat too much, nap, tell lies, and watch movies with the occasional argument (they call it discussion) about some piece of trivia, often movie trivia, but sometimes history, geography and other important stuff. Much fun.
