Just to add a little color to the WTB Movie posting, I added these two pics of Chester and Matt. We have been out to a little lake (Morton) outside of town to teach Chester how to swim and stuff. Chester took to the water like a dog. Loved it with great enthusiasim after at first being a little timid. Now he runs, leaps and bounds into the water chaseing a ball or stick. Last night we took the canoe to see if he would ride in it and not tip it over or jump out. It was a fiasco. The wind came up and it was blowing about 40 knots and whitecaps were on the lake and we got all wet. It was awlful, but Matt and I laughed about the experience.
As to the Movie of the week. No tie-in to the lake, water, dog or any of that. Hope you all have a good time trying to figure it out, but don't wait for the "give-away friday quotes", because I believe someone will have guessed it before Friday.

Person #1: [slightly bemused] Uh, no. It's an agreement reached by mutual consent. Now here's the way it works. You concede the necessity of goin' to school, we'll keep right on readin' the same way every night. Just as we always have. Is that a bargin?
Good luck and have fun....
