A Must to See!




Last weekend, Mark and I stumbled onto one of the most incredible movies we have ever seen: "Temple Grandin". It was a movie made for HBO and we found it at BLOCKBUSTER. It's the true story of a woman who is autistic.I have a little bit of knowledge regarding autism, but seeing this movie opened my eyes in a whole new way. I truly believe everyone (especially teachers) needs to see this movie in order to peek inside the brain of an autistic person. Unbelieveably fascinating. Temple is played by Claire Danes and she does an outstanding job of capturing Temple's personality and autistic behavior. Rent it today and be blessed!

So unreal... I was sitting in church service tonight in Temple and down on the floor in front of me underneath the person in front of me is this movie. I had never heard of it and in a short 2 hours I hear of it and see the cover. I will try to rent it. But our Blockbuster closed!!!!

Jo Carol, I have watched this movie twice and it is fascinating.

Did you know that I am expecting my first grandchild in a few weeks. After raising two wonderful sons I am now going to be blessed with a granddaughter!
Can't wait!!!!!

Do you realize we have another high school reunion next year? Time flies....wish you lived closer!
