I have neglected my writing self for several months but now it is time to get going again. On the day after Thanksgiving, my husband, brother and I decided to watch all 9 hours of The Lord of the Rings. We weren't in the mood to go downtown for the parade (in spite of a nice break in the nasty weather) and so revived an old Bergstrom/McNichols tradition. In the past, when the kids were young, we first watched all of the Planet of the Apes movies in one sitting. Then I believe we did Star Wars and maybe even James Bond. There are a lot more options now that might be worthy of a full day of viewing.
But here is a great speech from near the end of The Lord of the Rings.
"There’s some good in this world… and it’s worth fighting for."
— Sam, in The Lord of the Rings
