The look on Richard’s face as he watched the movie…

CoverYes, it’s true. We made Richard watch 1973’s The Wicker Man. Well, actually John did as this was his pick. We’ll say this now about Richard’s reaction to the film- I think he probably liked it more than he would have liked the Nic Cage starring remake. Outside of that…
