Huntington Gardens And A Christmas Movie

We went to the Huntington in the afternoon and then came home to watch “The Christmas Card”.  Please join us!

Looking pretty good after 2 1/2  hours of walking

When we got home, we turned on Hallmark for a great Christmas movie entitled “The Christmas Card“. US Army sergeant Cody Cullen’s horror tour in Afghanistan ends when his mate Jonesy is blown to pieces while they deliver medical supplies in Nurestan. Cody is sent home to return private possessions to Jonesy’s bride turned widow. On his way home he passes Nevada City, California, where he meets Faith Spelman, who writes the parish’s Christmas cards to lonely soldiers, coincidentally including him, an orphan. He happens to save her dad Luke from a serious car run-over. The Spellmans invite Cody home for dinner, then the Christmas tide. He proves a great help in the family logging firm. Vietenam vet Luke wants Cody as son-in-law, but although charmed, Faith still seems committed to rarely present fiancé Paul, a wine broker.

Sappy but romantic and certainly a Christmas favorite!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet loving my best friend and wife, having fun, learning, and passing on helpful things to others.
