If you have never seen them it is a great format..Long 3 movies (11 hours) but you can start and stop at your convenience..Hard to believe 20 years old. So deep at so many levels and thousands of web pages devoted to analyzing them. I don’t know anyone who does not have Netflix it seems. Highly Recommended and some think the best movie (actually 3 movies) of the 20th century. They are that good.
Played my first 9 hole round and my partner was legally blind. He had a spotter(another person) and some GPS technology to help him know where the ball was, where the hole was and if he hit it it went far. I did OK but I can see! Very humbling to see what we complain about. The went to Planet Fitness to freshen up, and a young lady with Downs was on elliptical next to her mother..I guess Mother was 60 and daughter 25. Finally drove through downtown and saw Lauralton Hall Cross Country practicing as well as a half dozen young Chinese students who I assume were the JV team with the new Athletic Director on a bike coaching/ encouraging them on. A lot to think about..
