The Sound of Muscles

This weekend is going to be a good weekend.
I know, because I'm going to the Sound of Music Sing-a-long at the Hollywood Bowl. Thousands of people cram into the seats and watch the movie "The Sound of Music" together, singing along with all the songs and hissing every time the Baroness comes on screen. I've been once before, and we had the BEST time.

I watched a little bit of The Sound of Music yesterday, sort of "preparing" for this Saturday. Like stretching before the big game. And I was struck by how much of a little boy Friedrich is. When I was a kid, I thought he was a STUD. He was older and taller and really wore those lederhosen like he meant business. In my mind, he looked more like the guy drawn above. But in reality, he's just a little, scrawny kid! I prefer the version in my memories, but I'm sure my heart will still skip a beat every time he appears on the big screen on Saturday night...
