The Dog?

“The dog?” she asked.

“OK,” I replied.

And so we bought our tickets and went in to see “A Dog’s Way Home.” It was a good choice. If you’re a dog lover, you would enjoy this movie. If you are old enough, it will remind you of “The Incredible Journey.” You have to be willing to believe in a dog as the narrator and remember real life stories of dogs who have found their way home over many miles and a very long time. If you are sentimental, you might shed a tear or two. If you are not… well, don’t go to this movie.

The movie was the beginning of our sister day. Afterwards we went to lunch at a favorite diner- except my sister ordered breakfast. Since it had started raining while we were in the movie, and we got chilly dashing in and out of the car, the best thing at the diner was their special blend of coffee.

Next stop was the nursing home to see Granny, my sister’s almost 95 year old mother. She was glad to see us and we had a nice visit. Next Saturday we will be there for her birthday party.

Last stop of the day was at my niece’s. We had pizza with the family and watched another movie on DVD- Instant Family. You gotta love a movie that features a foster/adoptive family. But remember it’s a comedy, so it makes it look easier than in real life. Still, love can make kids and parents who didn’t belong to each other in the beginning into a family.

It was a good day for movies and a good day for sisters.

    Nanny…My sister’s almost 95 year old mother? Is she your mother too? What a great family day you had!

  8. Technicality… my step-sister, so not my mom… the whole thing is one of those “long stories”- my sister’s dad and my mom married (after he was divorced & my mom was widowed) when we both were already grown and out on our own…

    I smiled when I read, “the best thing at the diner was their special blend of coffee.” Good coffee makes up for a lot of things. A sister day! Sounds like the best part is being together.

    Is this movie based on the book by the same title? I can’t wait to hear about the 95 year birthday party…I’m sure that is slice just waiting to happen. Happy sister day!
