The Cyclone Bomb, i.e. Nor'easter brushed us yesterday. Not a lot of rain here. But wind? Yes, with some fairly strong gusts. If the temperatures were colder, this would ripping the leaves from the trees. The wind's supposed to die down today. I don't really care since I'm scheduled for an 8 hour shift at the store. Though from my point of view, the wind is good because my leaves blow across the street into my neighbor's yard.
I went to see "Dune" last evening. I thoroughly enjoyed it. When buying my ticket, I told the guy at the concession stand that I had read the book over 45 years ago and received a blank stare. He told me he'd seen it and thought it was fine. Translation: there was serious narrative in between the action sequences in which the dialogue is important. Words have meaning. Their purpose is to move the story forward rather than loosely set the scene for the next car chase / fight scene between the good guys and the villains. This film is epic.
