Fox? Fantastic? Whoa!

We saw a movie last night – Fantastic Mr. Fox. Does that title even make sense? Not to me, and I have experience with foxes, maybe more than you.

Turns out that the movie is based on a book, a book that Bernie’s mom read to him when he was a kid. Have you met Bernie’s mom? This is hard to imagine. Anyway, Bernie loved that book.

And he loved the movie, too. It’s a kind of cartoon – okay, maybe nice to look at. But my kind doesn’t come off too well in the movie, and neither does Bernie’s kind, now that I think about it.

“What a great movie!” Bernie said.

I went and laid down in the laundry room, just to be by myself for a while. A towel on the floor might have gotten a bit gnawed.

    I think Bernie needs a new and interesting case.

    One of our Shelvers just recommended that movie in our pizza meeting.

    I saw a real fox cross the road in front of me yesterday morning… doesn't that mean something special to native Americans? Like an important decision or something???

    I believe that the fox is linked with the trickster in North American myth, as is the coyote. In Norse mythology the fox is associated with Loki. I always think that the Uffington White Horse in England looks more like a fox than a horse.

    Grammie Mabel says that one of the native tribes believe if a fox crosses your path, you taken the right one, i.e., had an important decision to make and chosen the right path.
