Merry Christmas!

and my Mother wants to be a pirate...

(Bare with me)

My Mother has been out of the hospital for awhile now, and with the gushers of blood stemmed, she now is feeling much better and in need of entertainment. She's exhausted the offerings of the Woodside Plantation cable systems and looks to other fare to aid in her recovery.

Problem: All the stuff she wants to see is at the theaters !(Marley & Me because she read the book)

We're discussing this over my semi-annual phone call to the folks (yes, I am a bad son. I know this. They know this. You now know this) and my Mom blurts out, "You know, I just wish they would release this movie on DVD the same time it was at theaters!"

Then I recalled this discussion many of us had over at Artful Writer.

So yes, Day & Date makes a lot of sense to people like my Mom (or my Dad for that matter) who really don't want to go out to the theater (when they go out it's to a restaurant, local ball games at the University, or parties). They want to watch their movies at home. And with more and more of our population approaching elderly status it's something to seriously think about.

So then, enjoy your holidays. Get some rest (I will). We have lots to do in the new year.

Glad your mom is doing all right. Reminds me when I mentioned Valkyrie to mine & she said I want to see it but I'll wait until it comes out on DVD...

But of course Santa could just show up and blow your whole family away and burn it all down too...
