SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ON NOVEMBER 1st.....
I so wanted to go to see this movie. First, if you visit my blog much, you know I love cats. Second I do like Antonio Banderas especially in ZORRO. He seems to be very fond of children. What few movies of his I have seen, he always has a young child figuring in some of the scenes. He often gives the child a pat on the head or does something that shows his love of children.
Since no grown-ups wanted to go with me, I settled on my 'grandaughter' Haley, even though it was a bit young for her. She loves cats and school was out for a couple of days for parent/teacher conferences.
It was a great movie! Soooo cute! Imagine! Puss-in-Boots' girl friend was called 'Kitty-Soft-Paws'! :) And Puss in Boots was another Zorro. It is deliberately slanted towards younger children, but that didn't bother Haley or me. We didn't go 3D -- too expensive, but I imagine for older children the 3D aspect would make the movie really exciting.
We had such a great time and followed the movie with a visit to our favorite yogurt place, MENCHIES. I had pomegranite -raspberry (oh, that is SUCH a delicious flavor) with chocolate chips, a couple of cherries and butter finger crumbles. Haley had vanilla with waffle crunchies and a couple of cherries also. They actually have about 20 different toppings.
Now look at that sunshine! Yes it was November 1st and the temperature was about 75 degrees at 3.30 in the afternoon. Today, 3 days later, it poured with rain which came down as snow in the near-by mountains about an hour and a half away. Temps in the 50's. That's southern California for you!
