I don't normally blog twice in one day but I promised Anne Of Green Gables and Mrs. M I would write an addendum to this as they are insisting that it was really Morgan Freeman I met on September 7th. You know stranger things have happened. Especially to me.
It seems Morgan is in town and has been. Yes. Our town.
I had no idea.
The movie he is currently filming is called Dolphin's Tale which is the heartwarming story of a dolphin named Winter who lost her tail and how this sea critter went on to inspire special needs children and adults world wide.
We have first hand knowledge of Winter having spent an evening with her in October of 2009 thanks to our wonderful Hospice children's program.
Here is how the phone conversation went:
Me: Why would Morgan be in a thrift store, though?
Mrs. M: Maybe he's a thirfter. (Mrs. M always cuts to the chase.)
Anne Shirley: What was he buying? What was he buying? (she can hardly contain her excitement)
Me: I don't know...wait...I do know one thing he purchased.There was a beautiful pair of men's leather shoes on the counter. When Morgan...er....the Morgan look-alike let me go in front of him he moved the shoes towards the cashier. I noticed them because they were of extremely high quality. But...
Mrs. M: What? You don't think Morgan knows quality when he sees it?
Anne Shirley: He's probably going to be wearing them in the new movie!
Mrs. M: Keep your eyes peeled for Ashley Judd and Harry Connick, Jr. They are in town, too.
Mrs. M and Anne of Green Gables are absolutely convinced it was the real Morgan.
I do know one thing for certain. I will be checking out Morgan's feet when Dolphin's Tale is released in 2011.
