Life Is Sometimes An All Day Sucker!

Paul fixed the shower door rollers this morning and it was actually not to bad a job.  Now the doors slide smoothly.   we got cleaned up and headed for Laura’s baby shower at Rebecca’s house.

We though it was a “Jack and Jill” shower but alas, it was all ladies.  Paul felt a tad odd so we departed a bit early and headed to Oceanside.  We had a great idea… Call the kids, Pete and Lisa, and ask them to meet us at the Hunter Steakhouse around 3:00 PM.  We met them and spend almost three hours just visiting.  They had lunch and we did a snack (as we are going to have dinner there at 6:00 PM).

We had dinner with Chuck and Lisa and some of their friends before going to the theater.

Loads of excellent food and great fun!

We departed the steakhouse about 7:30 PM and headed up Highway 78 to Vista and joined the Moonlight Amphitheatre just eight miles up the road.  we saw “Sunset Boulevard” and it was terrific.  We had row 5 near the enter and it was a great location!

Great theater and perfect weather

Did You Know? Sunset Boulevard is a musical with book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton (with additional lyrics by Amy Powers) and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Based on Billy Wilder’s Academy Award-winning 1950 film of the same title, the plot revolves around Norma Desmond, a faded star of the silent screen era, living in the past in her decaying mansion on the fabled Los Angeles street. When young screenwriter Joe Gillis accidentally crosses her path, she sees in him an opportunity to make her comeback to the big screen. Romance and tragedy follow.

We departed for home at 11:00 PM and arrived back at 12:15 AM as there was zero traffic!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
