Today, Cheri and I went to watch our grandson, Jackson, 4, plays beginners'basketball. His dad is one of the coaches.
Early afternoon, yesterday, before the heavy rain, we went to the movies and watched Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close based on the book of the same title written by Jonathan Foer. The story portrays the psychological effects of a loss of a loved one from the perspective of a 9-year old boy who lost his father in the 9/11 catastrophic event he is too young to understand. The acting is excellent and the editing is superb from beginning to the end. The surprises and vignettes of the different characters are wonderfully visualized in the movie than in the book.
