Shaun The Sheep

We are Shaun The Sheep. My husband has been viewing episodes for a while now, starting when he was out of town on business. It is on Amazon Prime, about a British farm and a sheep named Shaun.

Shaun is a small sheep who is leading a herd, reporting to the dog, his immediate “boss” with a clipboard and whistle, and the gentleman of the house.

Ah, what does Shaun do? He solves problems and when he’s not doing that he plays jokes on the bosses.

Minus the jokes on bosses, my husband and I are Shaun The Sheep. We come into a messed up situation and try to make it right. Often those in trouble do not wish to change for the positive. We do our best, each with our own set of skills, to make things right.

Thanks to the BBC for providing evening entertainment, claymation-style. Dee


The Movie Pact

Our first date, in 2001, was at the movies, big screen and reclining seats, and then a Mexican dinner. We saw Anthony Hopkins in Hearts in Atlantis.

Years after marriage, we know several things. I love Star Wars, IV and VI especially, not the prequels. He is joyful to find me up on a Star Wars marathon and goes back to sleep knowing every detail that was changed from the original version.

It’s usually tit for tat. I get one, he gets one. Normally we agree but Netflix and Amazon Prime have thrown us for a loop. We live in the city and have two small cinemas close by. All the megaplexes are in the suburbs.

I think our paid channels should at least make us walk around the block before viewing. We always went to a movie every weekend afternoon and now we don’t.

Here’s the deal. My husband is always paying me back for giving in to a colleague and making me see “The Ring.” So he’s seen Memoirs of a Geisha twice, once with me, and once with a former friend.

Let’s just say it’s spy/intrigue/cops vs the Brontes and Jane Austen. And I love my spy novels. Horror films are off the charts. Nightmares ensue, The Ring.

When we disagree, seldom, I get one movie and he gets one movie. When in LA we stayed up ’til midnight to see the opening of Harry Potter without kids. Did you say movie buffs? Happy viewing, Dee
