***** Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who made comments, sent Happy Anniversary wishes, and kept reading faithfully each day during my 45th Anniversary Marathon!! (I bet you thought I'd NEVER stop writing about it!)
The annual bouquet of absolutely gorgeous yellow roses appeared again this year! We had a lovely celebration dinner with Ratchlet and M-t-G, (poor T.A. had to work!) But this is the end, no more posts about the 45th anniversary! Really, I'm done.
***** Rather than sitting home on Saturday night, as we seem to be doing more and more, we decided to go to the movies!! We don't often go to see a film anymore; in fact, I'm pretty sure that the last movie I went to see was "Mamma Mia"!! When was that? Three years ago?? Hollywood is not fond of people like us. We only go to see something that is worth seeing! So what did we see?? "King's Speech!" It was wonderful with incredible performances by Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush. Everyone else has probably already seen it, but if you haven't, GO! It deserves every one of the awards that were heaped upon it!!
***** Hmmmm, it just occurred to me that Colin Firth was in "Mamma Mia" too! So I've seen 2 films in the last 3 or 4 years and Colin Firth was in both. Coincidence??? :)
***** Just a little mini-rant regarding another word
***** I finally got myself in gear and made an appointment with the hairdresser to have my hair cut. I continually forget how fast my hair grows, before I know it, I've got this long mop of hair that I can only wear in a pony tail! It is so nice to have it short again! Short is easy peasey! People have been known to say that short makes me look younger too.....I'll take it!
***** My car evidently decided that it was tired and needed a rest because last Friday my "check engine" light came on. That is a nifty little gadget that no one understands it's meaning! It's a little catchall phase that could mean any number of different things, and you must take it to a dealer in order to find out! I took the car into the dealer and it took them until Monday afternoon to determine that there wasn't anything wrong! Auto mechanics can no longer just stick their heads under the hood, jiggle a few wires, tap on a few mysterious hoses and moving parts, and listen to the engine to know what is wrong! No more! Now it's all computerized! You have to have a piece of equipment that can read and interpret the code causing the light to come on in order to find out what the problem is. Unfortunately, the sensors that trip the light are not always accurate. They can give false or conflicting results. And it takes several days to determine that the light was wrong! What a pain!! At least they didn't charge me anything! Although the car that I had to rent for four days, cost me over $200!! Thanks a lot, car! You couldn't have spit out that information within half an hour of our arrival to the dealer??? Arrgghh!
