Pony Boy & Wise now work daytime hours. After a long time of shift work, they have come to the light. Today they stopped by to be with Billy Bob. We are all a little worried about Big B squared. He’s sad … for the first time in 40 years, he is not hunting on opening weekend. That’s a hard habit to break. The plan was made to be with him and take his mind off what he was missing. Newsflash – it didn’t work but we had to try.
We ended up going to see Magnificent 7. I won’t spoil it for anyone, as if I could … it is a remake of a remake. You all know the plot by now. We went to Alamo Draft House which was a good choice because they had pre-movie viewing with the 7 theme. I had no idea the original Mag 7 was not the one with Yul Brenner (2016 may have actually been the 4th iteration). But rather the origin is a 1954 Japanese movie – 7 Samurai. We also got to see what’s up for October. We might be singing along later this month. It’s going to be a LONG season. Gotta fill in the spaces.
I remember how Pony always wanted work in the movie industry – not actor, behind the scenes. A hard field to break into in any capacity but he had some experience through media tech classes and VASE participation in high school. He filmed all the athletic events, built sets and was getting pretty good with make-up. I often wonder what may have happened if we somehow had found the means to send him to Full Sail University … or North Texas State. But we can’t go back, so we move forward.
All and all a good day. As always, more to come …
