Kathy Mattea or The King's Speech

Today my husband and I were planning to go out of town overnight.  The highlight of our trip was to have been a Kathy Mattea Concert.  I've enjoyed her music for years.  She was the first person I heard sing the song, " Mary Did You Know?"  I loved that song instantly!   We sing it at church each December now, and my kids watch to see if I'll cry.  Sometimes I do a little bit.

Anyway, the weather didn't cooperate.  Wyoming was hit with a lot of snow.  I'm sure that if someone was needing one of my kidneys or something, we could've made the trip.  However, it was just a bit too risky to make the trip for fun.

So.... onto plan B.  We went to see the movie, The King's Speech.  It was about Queen Elizabeth's Dad, King George VI.  Actually, most of the movie was about his speech impediment.  It sounds like a strange topic for a movie but I gave  it 5 stars out of 5.  I thought it was a charming movie, well-acted and well-directed.  It isn't a life-changing movie, I suppose, but definitely worth our time.  It took our minds off of Kathy Mattea for a bit.
