I love popcorn.¬† Jon loves it too; in fact popcorn is why we used to go to movies.¬† Unfortunately popcorn and I are no longer on friendly terms and smelling it at the theatre is so hard!¬† But, Saturday I ventured back to the theatre to take my mom to see "Walk in the Woods."
I was so excited to take mom to this movie because she has¬†hiked most of the Appalachian Trail.¬† I am so proud to share with most anyone how in her 60's and early 70's, mom would de-hydrate her own food and take off to the Trail for weeks at a time.¬† In the early years, mom and her trail partners would camp in tents or use the shelters.¬† It was my job to mail the food packages to her on the right days so they would arrive at these remote post offices off the trail on the right days.¬†
Mom is 86 now, you probably see her walking in¬† Winter Park with her hiking sticks.¬† She no longer hikes the trail or runs marathons but her memories of the trail are amazing and she loved the movie!¬† We laughed and laughed!¬†
Jon likes sitting near the aisle.¬† Whether its the movie theatre or church, he'll always choose an aisle seat.¬† Well, I found out mom likes the exact center of the theatre and apparently others do as well.¬† We were snug as a bug in a rug.¬† It was so tightly packed around us even if all our laughing had warranted a bathroom visit we'd never get over all those people!¬†
I'm not a movie rater, but we loved "Walk in the Woods."¬† Hope you have a chance to see it!¬† Sit by the aisle in case you laugh a lot too!
See you on the roads!
