First let me tell you about Dead Pool 2. It was funny, gory, and not suitable for children, but if you like Ryan Reynolds and his humor, you’ll enjoy it immensely. College friends who have relocated back here from Maryland love movies as much as we do. The only difference is the wife doesn’t really like action movies. Almost forty years of watching them with Rich have made them a staple for me, but at the end of the movie, she turned to me and said “That’s two hours I’ll never get back.” I can’t tell you how hard I laughed at that.
So today was going to be the day I finished the album I’m making them for their new house. Unfortunately, I didn’t see the house during the bricking phase and relied on Rich, who said “It’s brick colored.” I made the cover of the album “brick” and guess what? It’s not really “brick colored” at all. It’s more of a beige/tan brick, so the brick colored paper I bought and re-bought is not going to cut it. Luckily I bought some white brick paper early on, and I think (keep that in mind) that I can color it and make it match their home better. Of course I did say “think” so we really have no idea what my end result will look like.
I didn’t get up for the royal wedding, but did see (on YouTube) the beginning of Meghan’s walk down the aisle. When the trumpets started, the little boy on the right holding her train was astounded, and utterly adorable. If you haven’t seen it, he’s now an internet sensation. Rich got up and asked if I watched any of the wedding and I only showed him the little boy and he just smiled. You could tell that kid will remember that moment for the rest of his life, and what a moment to remember!
Mid-afternoon, we got a call from another of our college friends, wanting to go to dinner and gambling. They texted the rest of our gang, and the eight of us met to donate money to the casino in Erie, PA. We had a great time at dinner, and donated some money, then headed home in a horrific rainstorm. It was hard to see the road, and I’m glad we left when we did, as I don’t think it would have been safe to drive after dark with it raining that hard. We were glad to get home and the dogs were really glad to see us. Honey hates wind, rain, basically anything unexpected, so she was super anxious when we got home. She’s finally calmed down after an hour of laying with me.
I am committed to finishing that album tomorrow. I’m going to have to remove the covers (YIKES!) and replace them with much sturdier cardboard, and change the color of the white bricks. It might be a long day, but it’s not over until the fat lady sings. Where did that saying come from? I know it has to do with opera, but geez, can’t they let us sturdily built women have a break?
