Just saw "The Shack", and it blew me away! I thought I had read the book, but it turned out that I hadn't. I knew it would be spiritual; and it was, but far more than I had imagined. The only well-known actress in it was Octavia Spencer; and she was excellent, as always, but so was everyone else. It deals with a man's relationship to God, his personal sadness and tragedies, his guilt, and his shortcomings in a deeply moving way. It is very personal, yet still fun. It is ultimately about forgiveness, and it is very powerful. I would highly recommend this movie, but do not see it if you are looking to laugh and enjoy! It's a more serious movie and definitely worth seeing. And if you are seeing it at the AMC theater off Tilghman Street and end up in the first row like I did, relax—with those reclining seats, you don't even get a stiff neck! This theater is very nice, although the ticket price is around $10.
Then it was dinner at Wert's and since it was after 6:30 p.m., it was only a half hour wait! I had the grilled salmon with sweet potato fries and cole slaw and it was delicious, esp. the fries. My other favorites at Wert's include the Chesapeake burger with crabmeat on top and, for lunch, the strawberry salad. We had separate checks including drinks at the bar and my total was around $25.00 plus tip. Not bad!! If you have any requests for this column, please let me know. And if you want to go along, please give me a call!!
