Hidalgo…

I'm here at work with Zeze, working on the web site for the shop, listening to Fleetwood Mac, and enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee while Zeze checks on some networking issues that have cropped up recently.

Last night Zeze and I went and saw “Hidalgo” at the local cinemultiuberplex; it's a really well done movie for anyone who has an even passing fancy of horses and has some really beautiful cinematography as well.

The movie is based on the life and times of Frank T. Hopkins, a famous long distance / endurance horse racer who won over 400 races in his career and was a champion of the Spanish (American) Mustang breed which allowed him to win all those races. The stallion, Hidalgo, whom Vigo Mortensen as Frank Hopkinks calls “little brother”, almost steals the spotlight from Vigo on several occasions and proves to be just as capable of an actor.

Overall I thought this was a pretty good way to spend $20 and you'll definitely leave the theatre with a nice, warm fuzzy feeling.

Well, I need to get back to the web site. Have a good day out there in the matrix!
