Just tried watching it on Netflix again. As is usual with most movies there is 90% "fluff" and 10% flying. What flying they had was enjoyable though.

Been a rocker all my life but there is some damn good C&W music out there now. Gone is that twangy Hank Williams stuff. Now it's music that's actually fun to listen to.

When I turned 55 (I'm 58 now) I tried getting senior discount at a few places. They all told me I needed to be 62! :{ I haven't tried at Subway. I'll give it a shot next time I go in there.
