Trade Days

It's the third weekend of the month and it is Trade Days time in Fredericksburg...My bud, Sandy, and I used to do Trade Days together, but that is history. She is coming this weekend and we are going to work together at Red Baron Antiques...I will blog more about that later, and spend Friday at Trade Days as shoppers...YEA!!
That's our old booth when we did Trade Days. And I have always been fascinated with the creepy doll display.

Movie Review

I am not a movie critic, but I think for my blog I just may make myself one...I recently saw the movie Dear John, based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks. I have read books written by Sparks in the past, but I have not read this one. I like to compare movies from the books I have read to see how accurate and true the movie is to the book. With this movie I could not make any comparisons.

I found the movie to be very good and the young actors did a fine job playing a couple who fall in love over a period of two weeks. He is home on leave from the Army and she is a conservative college coed. He returns to the Army finish up his last year in service when 9/11 happens and their relationship takes an unexpected turn...

Although this is a love story, I found the true love story to be in a different area which is touching and will make you cry. All in all I would recommend this movie and you could take your grandmother with you to see it. Take a hankie!
