Dear John

The girls and I went to the movie "Dear John" the other day. Well it was that Monday, President's Day or Washington's Birthday whatever that last holiday was that I got the day off. And the girls got out of school at 1:30 that day; so we headed to Kearney to catch the matinee. I was wanting to see "Valentine's Day" but the show times were not right, so we went to "Dear John" instead. I had kinda wanted to read the book first, but didn't get that done. It, the movie, was a tear jerker. All 3 of us cried. But i've heard that the book ends diffently than the movie.

So today we had an employee lunch meeting at work. 1/2 of us for an early lunch the other half for a later lunch. I went early then I had to go to our other location to cover so those gals could go the main bank for the meeting.

Anyway.......

laying there on their couch thing was the "Dear John" book. So I was like hmm I wonder how much of the book is different. So I started skimming through; this part is pretty close; this part is the same; a few differences here & there. I kept skimming until I got to the end. And i'm not going to say what was different, don't want to ruin it for anyone else, but, sniff, i was 'bout in tears from that ending too! If i'd had time to actually read the book I know I would have been bawling like a baby!

The movie is now playing in our hometown theatre this weekend and I'm so gonna try to drag hubby there and see it again!

Hi Tracie!
Remember me? Sorry I haven't been around much (at all?) in so long but for the past year and a half I've been in and out of ERs, ICUs and the hospital in general. I lost a few body parts and lots of weight but I'm on the mend now. It was touch and go for awhile so I wasn't able to comment much but I did do a bit of posting. I'm still at the same old address, ruserious0947.spaces.live.com. So, time to update my space and get back into it.

I'll check out that movie
Take care,
Bob
