Had a good day today. We got a lot done at the building, and ran out of room in the garbage cans, so we're coming home a day early. Actually, we're going to leave tomorrow morning and take our time getting home. We're probably going to stop in Paducah on the way home, and possibly someplace in Tennessee as we're heading across on Wednesday.

Mary watched Walk The Line on pay-per-view while I listened to the Braves' season opener, meaning that I caught a lot of the movie as well. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon were incredible as Johnny Cash and June Carter...the longer the movie went, the more I forgot who they really were. I have a much greater appreciation for Johnny's music having seen the movie. Think I'll pick some of it up at my next opportunity. I grew up with "A Boy Named Sue" and "Get Rhythm" on the Top 40 charts, and always liked The Man In Black's voice. Perhaps I can find some of his joint efforts with June as well. I gotta say it...I've always thought Reese Witherspoon was gorgeous...she is magnificent in this movie. And both she and Joaquin are fabulous singers. They sounded wonderful together. She really earned her Oscar, and I think, had Philip Seymour Hoffman not nailed Truman Capote in that movie, Phoenix would have won for Best Actor.

In all, it's been a good day. I slipped off the diet long enough to enjoy a pizza for dinner and dessert at lunch time. I'll have to do a LOT of walking to work this off. But, I don't care.

Anywho...may not get the funnies out in the morning. We're going to get out of here early, I think. Talk to you all later.
