We began at church and then headed for the Elks at Newport Harbor (where we are now associate members!) Crazy Jon Destry was playing today so we had tons of fun and danced all afternoon. Paul even had a hamburger because he knew about 1500 calories would be burnt dancing.
At 4:00 we went VFR to Old Ranch (after a short stop at the house to feed the babies) . The frivolity began immediately!
Lee was in town so she joined us for dinner before catching a plane back to Utah. Lee was a High School girl friend that we connected back up with via Classmates & Facebook.
When we got home we flipped on the TV for a movie and watched “Edge Of The Garden” by Hallmark. Summary: Brian (Rob Estes), a job-obsessed corporate man whose fiancée (Kelly Monaco) has just walked out on him, gets a lesson in love and loss when he buys a charming but rundown old cottage in the countryside of Maine. Brian soon figures out he isn’t so alone when strange things start happening: lights mysteriously flicker, voices echo through the halls, and, strangest of all, fresh bouquets of flowers appear around the house when the garden outside is neglected. Curious, Brian wanders down the garden path and finds the spirit of Nora (Sarah Manninen), a beautiful woman who is quite literally living in the past. Realizing they are living in the same house, fifty years apart, Nora and Brian form a special friendship. Can one man change a whole town’s history in a single moment?
