I'm 50 pages behind..... Eesh... Definitely not going to catch that up. Sorry guys.
She intentionally played it cold because the original books portrayed MP as much more harsh then Julie A. had been directed to do. But, really that is pretty much all Julie has been known for and it would not have established her career image in the way that it did. I'm still at a middle of the road outlook. I loved both for what they were. I found some of the music far more emotionally moving in MP2 and even when listened to more then once even more catchy then the original. The difference was, back in the 60's the radio played some of the sound track which made it more memorable.Recently, I saw the DVD of Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt). So this remake was pleasant, but I honestly thought it lacked the heart and soul of the original.
I think Julie Andrews just had this innate "sparkle" that shone through, even when she'd state the rules to the children to be obedient. She was effective in getting her point across, but always in a quite charming way (both to children and adults).
Emily Blunt played the role a bit less warmly. (This may have been what the director wanted, to give the remake a slightly different spin, and not a carbon copy of the original.) Loved the costume design.
Overall: Mary Poppins (original) - 100%
Remake of Mary Poppins - 75%
Funny, I lived in New England for 63 years and I don't remember it raining everyday. We had some serious droughts up there in the past. This year it has rained just about every day here in central NC. It is with warmer air, but, is still wet and muddy. You know that red clay stuff that the south is so famous for.Come to New England where it rains everyday
Those berries look so delicious! It looks like it was such an amazing weekend. Love the togetherness of your family.A few more pics from today...!!!!!

I watched a video the other day of a fish hatchery in AZ. They grow fish and then feed lakes with them.Quoting myself because after all these years I finally was alert enough to ask this question. If you have a mountain lake that is fed from above or artesian type how did the fish get there?
He looks like a really authentic baseball player.
