This weekend was a great weekend for using my Vue Weekly Ticket prize pack. I sent Oliver and Mark off to see Joel Plaskett at The Arden on Saturday night and then I took my mother to see A Few Good Men at The Citadel Theatre on Sunday night. The boys quite enjoyed their night of music, buying CDs and getting them autographed and the boys have been listening to the opening act, Mo Kenney, as we drive home from school each day. They each have a favorite song and we bounce back and forth between track 3 and 8 as many times as we can before we reach home.
Afterwards my mother and I talked for quite some time about the nature of living in that military world and how it must be to live in a world where you must follow orders without question. It was thought provoking even though both of us had seen the film many times before. Still relevant today - perhaps even more so.
