Sharing a movie

I got wrapped up in an old movie on TMC this evening--Tender Mercies, with Robert Duvall and Tess Harper--and about half an hour into it, here comes Minnie hopping up on the couch beside me and snuggling in for the long haul. I'd forgotten what a little gem that movie is, and I forgot the time as we watched (OK, I watched, Minnie slept). Daylight faded, we didn't move until the end, and there Minnie still was, curled up against my chest, despite my singing along every now and then...or maybe because of it. Music hath charms....

I told Minnie afterward that she was the nicest creature I'd ever shared a movie in the dark with. She has no agenda.
