It all begins with a very lonely older man having just lost his wife!! He is of the "old school" where another nationality does not belong here in the USA!! He has those great names that he calls them all. It also prefaces around a well loved and well taken care of 1972 Dark Green Grand Torino. He is very proud of his car...This goes on for a bit until an Vietnamese family moves in next door to him...
This is a great movie that shows no matter how old you are you can change your attitudes and already pre-formed ideas of people!! He is an old crusty Korean war veteran and remembers how he has killed so many men in the war....
I loved this movie since I have heard this will be Clint Eastwood's last movie!! He did a great job with his LAST one...Mikey and I just loved it...
The only bad part for me was the language!! I just hate bad language..Call me a prude..but that is something I have a time dealing with in a book or a movie...BUT this movie had to have that language for it to be true to the way the gangs talk...It for some reason did not offend me as other movies have done!!
I really recommend "GRAND TORINO" if you would like to see a good performance by Mr. Eastwood and the two young Vietnamese kids that are in this!!
As for today...We went out looking at homes today in Effingham Country!! We found one that is a foreclosed home. It would be perfect home for us..A little brick ranch house with 2 acres..We could easily store our motor home and work trailer and well a lot more there. We called about it and of course it is over our heads..The relator was very nice in telling us that if we wait a few more months and were Not in a HURRY, that they were hoping that the market would stabilize itself.
This little home needs a lot of work but that would not be a problem for us.....it has 4 bedrooms; 3 whole baths; cute front room; kitchen; dining area and a closed in back porch...We are just praying about it and wherever God wants us to be!! Best plan we both think!!
Beautiful day again today..it is 68 now Sunny and just a gorgeous day!! This is the winter time that I love having!!
