    Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight. Three movies about two people’s relationship each filmed nine years apart. The cast for the first two is basically just Delpy, Ethan Hawks, and extras while the third adds a few other sparsely used regular cast members.

    Like Nandor the Relentless said, the first one is set in 1995 and it catches a lot of that mid-90’s zeitgeist.

    Hawke is an American traveling Europe it began to reconcile itself post-Cold War. He meets Delpy on a train as she is traveling back to Paris where she lives.

    He has to fly out of Vienna the next day and convinces her to get off the train in Vienna. He has no money, just a return ticket to the US, so they spend all night walking the streets of Vienna until he catches his plane at sunrise.

    It’s almost exclusively dialogue, but it’s really well written.

    I won’t spoil the second one, because it’s a twist at the end of the first.

    Would you rather have:
    Permanent mitten hands - each hand has a thumb and one wide, flat digit that has the same joints as a normal finger

    or

    4 regular fingers on each hand, but no thumbs

    This is exclusive to you, the rest of the world is regularly digited. Technology exists exactly as it does today. No prosthetics, surgeries, or body modifications are available.

    We moved to Jax about two years ago. But, yeah, it’s an awful situation. Our boy will be 13 in a few months. He’s always had separation anxiety but his problems have gotten worse. He has all the telltale signs of cognitive decline: agitation, confusion, stares into space. To make matters worse, he nipped at my wife the other day when she was leaving the house and bruised her leg. The vet told us it’s a significant milestone because once a domesticated dog loses that inhibition, they’re likely to do it again. My kids are 9 and 4 and always jumping on him, so I’m afraid he could bite them. We’re trying a few meds to help with the confusion and anxiety, but if that doesn’t work, we’ll have a tough decision to make.

    From my experience there isnt much you can do sadly. Just medication, which is 50/50 at best.

    Thanks. It’s been a tough few days. The vet prescribed selegiline and gabapentin. I’m hopeful, but at his age, it’s only a matter of time. :sad:

    both meds help calm the mind. selegiline with the anxiety and gabapentin with the pain. pretty typical.
