"Public Enemies"

We went to see "Public Enemies" last night, and it's FABULOUS. I love Michael Mann, I really do. This is such an incredible piece of work. You really feel like you've fallen into the 1930's...

(Apologies if you follow the above 'official movie website' link and find it DIFFICULT. I really hate the Flash sites created for movies -- and this appears to be an especially bad one... sigh...)

All of the acting was excellent in the movie -- and the constant closeups work quite well. I'd recommend it to anyone, whether you're a Depp and/or Bale fan, or not.

We didn't get home until around 12:30 a.m. -- then I still needed to do the garbage and recycling (!!!). One of my bags of soda cans got blown over and Marilyn mistressmarilyn kindly went out and picked them all up out of the street. Then my garbage bag with the used kitty litter got a hole as I was putting it in the garbage can, spewing litter all over the grass. Plus we were picking up cushion stuffing that the squirrels had turned into a nest. This week they suddenly started throwing it all over the ground! Marilyn suggested the two squirrels had 'split the sheets' (broken up), as they were both there and chattering unpleasantly for ages. What a mess they made! The stuffing was EVERYWHERE. (From them ruining the cushions on our swing.)

Bo and Earle finished up the job yesterday. I need to take photos and share them.

Marilyn got up and started cleaning our lawn furniture this morning. I planted begonias in the front bed (she helped, of course) -- and we have many left to plant in pots in the back. Now we want to go get our impatiens for the big flower boxes out back (near the deck). It's late to be planting them, so we really need to get them in!
