1. Since the last time I visited, my folks had a cast iron lamp post installed in their front yard. As we pulled up last night (my thanks to Aba for picking me up at the airport, taking me to see gnomi and adorable nieces and lcmlc) it was snowing heavily at that particular moment. It looked very much out of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe.
2. My favorite character is Reepacheap. There is something so adorable to me about a swashbuckling mouse with a pure heart and quest for adventure whose approach to religion (through the allegory of the story) is essentially an adventurous one. Reepacheap is a mouse who teaches other mice that they are bigger than life. You gotta love that.
3. Still haven't seen the movie. Aaron liked it better than he liked Prince Caspian. I am wondering if they will ever do an adaptation of A Horse and His Boy.
