Sunday in October
At last, I got one still photo of the gourdish haul, before we loaded them into the car. We took a scenic route home, through the hills, and all the gourds, squashes, pumpkins, ran back and forth across the back of the car, trying to get a good look out the window. Squashes don't get out much and they simply couldn't sit still! But they were only minimally bruised when we got home, so,no harm, no foul. Now I am squinting at those orange surfaces and imagining faces.
With an afternoon before us, we looked for something to do that we would both enjoy. The new Three Musketeers movie is now showing. It was SO much fun! It's well cast with appealing actors young and old. It even drifts loosely around the original story, though Dumas never imagined the flying warships or the Countess DeWinter engaged in Matrix-like sword fights with the Cardinal's guards or any of the other interesting twists, but I kept grinning through the whole show, and Dh enjoyed it, too.
There have been 40 movie versions of the Three Musketeers. I think I remember Michael York as D'Artangan. And didn't Racquelle Welch once play Constance?
The costumes in the latest version were a treat, though only roughly accurate. I adored the king's shoes and hats! It might be fun to compare costumes across all 40 versions.
Now, /dh is back to work for another 12days straight, and I have pumpkins to carve. And a camera to learn how to use. Wish me luck.
