Just a couple of quick things for tonight. I went sledding with Maegan and Hurricane. The weather had finally warmed up enough to be able to enjoy spending time out of doors. If you are in any doubt as to whether you are getting older, just go sledding with a six year old and someone in their early thirties. Tobogganing (sledding) is a very fast, uncontrolled, terror filled rush down a hill, followed by a slow slog up the same hill. The first couple of times the adrenaline created by the downhill part kind of makes up for the hard work of going back up.

It was fun and tiring for all concerned, but the younger you are the easier it is to bounce back. You know, the odd thing is that if I were to do that more often I would be in much better shape and I would more than likely laugh a lot more. I might just give it a whirl by myself sometime. First, I should put 911 on speed dial.

The second thing I want to mention is that I went to see Part 2 of the Hobbit, “The Desolation of Smaug”. Just in case anyone is wondering if it is worth going to see, yes it is. Pretty much non stop action throughout and if you see the 3D version there are more than a few times you have to duck and/or scream like a little girl. It was a very enjoyable movie and I recommend giving it a look.

That being said, it did stray pretty far from the book. I suppose it doesn’t matter to anyone but me and a few other purists that are out there. The movie wouldn’t have been nearly as exciting and it wouldn’t make the millions that this one will. I am looking forward to next year when we can all go and see part 3. Should be fun and I’ll get another pair of 3D glasses for my collection.
