Instead of packing.....

the RV for our trip tomorrow, I'm reading blogs and thought I'd try and do a Friday Fragments early....
Oh, how I wish I was one of those people who scheduled posts instead of sitting down and doing one on the fly.  Oh, well.......that's just my procrastinating self.

So go on over to Mrs. 4444's place and join in for Friday Fragments.  It's fun and you'll meet new people.



We did something this week that we very seldom do......went to a movie.....at the actual movie theater.  We went to see Hope Springs and although I thought Meryl Streep was good and I love Tommy Lee Jones, I didn't care for the movie.  It was a little too much sex talk for me, but the Maine scenery was absolutely breathtaking.  To add to my discomfort, the theater was as full as I've seen it in a long time and I was sitting in between my husband and a strange man.....he was only strange because I didn't know him.  Nevertheless.....I moved closer and closer to the Superhero as the talk got more and more graphic.

If anyone has seen The Odd life of Timothy Green I'd like to know how it is before I go see it in the theater.  But Hunger Games comes out on DVD next week and I do want to buy that one because it was good and I can watch good movies more than twenty times once.

******************

Since we're getting ready to go away, Russell washed the RV the other evening while I waited for him to finish so we could walk.  Our walking is limited to in between thunder storms, so he poked his head in the door and said maybe I ought to go ahead without him because it was clouding up and I said o.k.  Then I thought a moment and thought but what if it starts storming while I'm walking???  He doesn't call me Miss Positivity for nothing!! The Superhero had already thought of that and promised to come get me if it so much as thundered.  In case I didn't mention it two people were hit by lightning near us and both died.  I have a healthy fear of the stuff.

So off I went.  All was fine until I was almost back home and I saw one bolt of lightning but knew it was far off and I had time to get home.  In about a minute I saw the Superhero's truck headed to get me.....awwwwwwww.  I signaled to him that I was fine and he knew I was almost home, so he turned around.  That man loves me!  Awwwwww......

********************

Sometimes when I'm reading to mama, she tries to go to sleep, so lately I sit real close and give her a little nudge when her eyes close.  She says "Owwww, stop hitting me"  I just grin.  I wish she would stay awake in the afternoons because then she would sleep at night maybe!  Another attempt I make is reading so loudly they can probably hear for several apartments.

Everyone have a great weekend!
I gotta go pack!

Where are you going? We leave in 3 weeks from this Sunday, and I cannot wait!

I was optimistic about seeing Hope Springs ... I like Meryl Streep and DH & I both love Tommy Lee Jones. :-(

Your hubby is a sweetie to come get you after that one bolt of lightning ... he's a keeper!

Have a safe trip and wonderful time!

Thanks for the warning about the movie. I read the review on Plugged In and decided I didn't want to see it. Have a wonderful trip!
Will go visit Mrs. 4444.

Needled Mom said...

I'm glad to read your movie review as I had heard it was good. We never go to the movies and I think I can pass on this one too.

I do think that SH loves you!!!! What a sweet gesture to come looking for you.

Enjoy your trip and we'll file those elder abuse papers while you are gone!!!

The fact that we had a loverly two week vacay in the northwoods on Gull Lake does not in any way negate my feelings of jealousy over you leaving for a camping trip.

Just sayin'

Unknown Mami said...

He is a Superhero! Wow, how terrifying that lightning has killed two people.

Dear Nancy, I so hope your trip is all that you've imagined/dreamed it to be! There's another blogger--Melissa of http://writeryogini.blogspot.com/
who is actually traveling the country with her husband in an RV. They are going to travel all over and have been doing so for several months. They're looking for a place they will finally call home.

Anyway, I hope your vacation is filled with rest and laughter and delight. Peace.

Had to laugh! We are the same about movies. only we rent them, and often in 5 minutes they are back to the store. Did you read Fran's 6 people away thing? Well here you are...Tommy Lee Jones is the cousin of one of my best friends. They always hung out together until he was sent to school in Dallas as a teen. So count..that is less than 6! Hahaha! Have a great vacation!

I saw Hope Springs with my dad and I enjoyed it but I agree with the sexual things. What really upsets me is that the movie is PG13!

Mimi said...

HI NANCY!!!!
Oh I am afraid of lightning......And what a lucky lady you are to have someone LOVE you that much!!!!I agree about Hope Springs...I will pass...maybe see it when it comes out to rent....I know at our age......the HOPE does exist...you just have to make the time!!!Enough said. Have a Great weekend...An RV outing sounds so perfect.you are going to love the R and R

I had to skip the part about Hope Springs because I haven't seen it and I didn't want to be influenced. I'm hoping to go soon. Your husband coming to get you is just about the sweetest thing I've ever read! How SWEET! Have a great trip!

I love Maine. I hate explicit talk in movies. Good to know this.

I haven't been in a RV since I was about 10 or so. I know some people love those road trips. I love small, fast cars for trips.
