made it out to see a movie! :)

 

went to see an advance screening of this movie last night – excellent stuff 🙂 Tom Hanks is always good and Mark Rylance was fabulous as Rudolph Abel. Anyone who knows me can probably guess my favourite line of his in the movie… “Will it help?” 😉

Today it’s pouring with rain so I’m staying inside looking up facts about the Francis Gary Powers U-2 spy plane incident to see how much of what I saw in the movie was actually true and how much was artistic license or hearsay. When it actually happened I was only three and of course didn’t live in this country so I don’t know a whole lot about it which makes today the perfect weather day for me to stay in and learn something!

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
