Movies I watched in 2022

2022 isn't a full return to form for the movie industry, but it's a good few steps forward.  There was still a significant period of time for me where I just wasn't interested to see any movie in the theaters for weeks, if not months.  Overall, though, I saw quite a number of movies.  This won't be a review, per se.  I'm just going to list what I saw with links for streaming if someone else wishes to see them now.

It's not often...

It's not often that Allie and I talk about a movie we've seen at the theater for days afterwards, but that's exactly what's happening for both movies Top Gun: Maverick and Elvis. Maverick is a fun thrill ride and Elvis is a fascinating biopic. (From facebook post in July.2022.)

Thanksgiving Squirrel

This Thanksgiving squirrel is thankful that my dogs cannot climb trees. As Toebzilla and Joie barked from different points around the tree, this little guy scooched around to hide behind the trunk.

EDIT: So, who know?  #thanksgivingsquirrel is apparently a thing on Instagram.  Not a bit thing, but there's more than a few postings with this hashtag, going back to 2013; with the first post resembling a bigfoot photo.  And, there's even some activity on twitter.  Fun!
