Some people try to turn back their “odometers.” Not me. I want people to know why I look this way.
It’s Friday…another week almost gone! Life is good! After a Greek yogurt, I headed to CVS to get my inhaler prescription and volia, it was there! To celebrate I returned home and dived into lunch…today, I start a little weight reduction effort.
After lunch Sue decided to read and I went to the shop to attack a bad electrical circuit I have in the front yard. I did battle for two hours and failed…there is always tomorrow!
We watched ER and Grey’s Anatomy until 4:45 PM at which time we jumped into the shower transforming ourselves from frumpy to magnificent and readied ourselves for an evening with friends.
We have the Branders, the Zaitz, and three other couples…all who we really like a lot so the evening was filled with levity!
We danced at the Garden Grove Elks to the music of Street Corner Symphony. Loads of fun but alas, we departed about 9:00 PM as we have a BIG bay tomorrow. Our daughter, Robin, got us and her family special tickets to see activities related to the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon. We are going to have lunch at McKay’s then pop over to the Science Center and partake in a presentation and then a 1:00 PM IMax movie about the Apollo Program.
In this special giant-screen edition of Todd Douglas Miller’s critically acclaimed Apollo 11 documentary, created exclusively for science centers and museum theaters, the filmmakers reconstruct the exhilarating final moments of preparation, liftoff, landing and return of this historic mission—one of humanity’s greatest achievements and the first to put men on the Moon. With a newly-discovered trove of never-before-seen 70mm footage and audio recordings, Apollo 11: First Steps Edition joins Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, the Mission Control team and millions of spectators around the world, during those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
