Hakuna Matata!

The Lion King was awesome. The music, the costumes, everything was amazing. One thing I loved in particular was how they made use of the whole theater. People and animals would walk down the aisles on the ground floor, and at one point there were cast members at different spots in the theater with cloth birds on long poles, and they were swinging them around, making them fly, as they sang. It's hard to describe, but the effect was really neat. I got goosebumps more than once, and I cried more than once. There were quite a few scenes added in that were not part of the original movie. Some added a lot to the whole feel of it, others, not so much. Overall though, I really liked it, and I think I'd see it again, given the opportunity.

One other short story for you before we start packing up. We were out and about yesterday on the hunt for a Western store that hubby had found on Google Earth. We were driving down the highway, and got off on an exit for business 127. There's no sign at the top of the ramp as to which direction is which though, so hubby turned right, hoping he was going the right way. A little farther down the road he tells me he's lost, that he only paid cursory attention to the actual distances and whatnot to where he needed to get off the highway. So we travel down that road for a bit, but when we don't find what he's looking for, he takes a left on another road, going back in the direction the first highway had been traveling. We're practically in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farms, on a road that seemingly isn't going anywhere fast, when we see ahead of us some cars on what looks to be a more major road. We get to the intersection, and hubby sees a sign. It's the road he was looking for in the first place.

I told him, only you could get lost and still find the place you're trying to get to.

I'm SO glad you liked it and had a great experience!
Getting lost can be fun! We've found some great places that way...

Oh boy, that's so me. I'm bad with directions and rarely pay much attention. I end up doing a lot of uturns and wondering driving, guessing which way might be best... but I usually end up where I need to be! :)

Glad you had a good time! :)
I agree, your husband is the only person I know that could do that. He seems to have an innate sense of direction.
