Get out of the heat ...Boots and all

When you live in the tropics, the build up has started, it's hot and it just won't rain to give you a break, what do you do for some sanity?

You look for something to do in airconditioned premises, that's what you do!

Now I know that you know that girls just love to go shopping; but right at the moment that is a bit of a chore for me ... so I have to think of something else.

Ahha ...go to the movies!

So we have just been to the movies to see Charlie and Boots. It's an Australian movie starring Paul Hogan (Crocodile Dundee), Shane Jacobson (Kenny), Roy Billing, Rebecca Asha, and Morgan Griffin.

A father and son travel from Victoria to Cape York to fulfill their lifelong ambition to fish off Australia's northern tip.

If you know any of the male actors, you will realize that it is going to be funny, but there is a bit of a message there also.

They cover quite a bit of distance and even visit the country town I called next door when I was growing up. I even recognised some of the scenery, particularly the Warrambungle Mountains.

It's worth a watch ... don't leave when the credits start rolling; wait until the absolute end for the cameo line from Paul Hogan.

I hardly recognised Paul Hogan at first. But I bet you laughed a lot. Seemed to be a feel-good light-hearted film.
