bernie-the movie, lost maples, football

bernie the movie is being filmed in this area
it is a dark comedy based on an article published in the
1990s in the magazine texas monthly  
it is being described as the 'fargo' of east texas
-remember the fargo movie form a few years ago-ya ya

the setting is in east texas     actors with the roles in the
movie are jack black matthew mcconaughey  and shirley
mclaine     it is a richard linklater movie      
know it is going to be a funny movie

while filming the movie at a local high school jack black
took over the intercom system to do the morning
kids were scrambling to get their cell phones to record
jack blacks announcements

my nephew he (the one who fell down the water tank
but really did not in a previous blog)(and the one that
edited the video from a previous blog on the drummer
that fell down while marching) is an intern on the movie
he may have made it into the movie if he can survive the
editing process


spent the weekend at lost maples state park
see link below

the big toothed maple is found in the canyons of this park
they are the ones that are in the fall foliage that makes
new england area foliage so great in the fall
they are only found in this canyon in this part of the
united states

the foliage had not changed much this year but in
previous years it has been perfect
this picture is from 3 years ago when weather and
conditions were good

my wife she and i hiked the canyons and enjoyed the
quiet and peacefulness of this place along with the
clear water in the streams and rivers  
can only imagine  how beautiful the foliage in new
england must be

we spent the weekend with my cowgirl sisterinlaw and my
brother in a cabin on the river near lost maples
its always a relaxing weekend

now back to the grind

the razorbacks won against south carolina
they  looked good

the cowboys and the longhorns were painful to watch
still think they should play each other
