Spence: I know you read a lot about World War 2. What did you think of Dunkirk?

Admin: Great flying scenes. Good nautical scenes. Excellent performance by Mark Rylance. The words “German,” “Nazi,” or any of the epithets they were actually called by our men were never uttered or seen in the super-title script at the beginning. The word used was “enemy.” “Britain?” Check! “France?” Check! But just generic “enemy” for the Germans. Strange because the movie was all about specific, close-up detail. So: Why?

    Grizz and I saw “Dunkirk” on the IMAX screen. The aerial scenes were spectacular! We liked the film very much. We also noticed “German” was never used to refer to the enemy.

    Good day to all!

    A bit of heather on a low lying trail. In the upper elevations the hills are very purple with the heather in bloom. In Scotland for a few days.

    Grizz and I are back from the movies. We saw a small, independent film called “Wind River” with Jeremy Renner. Two thumbs up.

    C.Hobbitz: I am really enjoying your photos!

    My laptop has kicked the bucket…I will be getting a new one tomorrow.

    Melanie’s back home, thanks again to our friend who stepped up when others could not and/or would not but framed as could not. Now we’re all tired.
