Sunday Was Pretty Busy

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.

Destry rides again

At 4:00 we went VFR to Old Ranch (after a short stop at the house to feed the babies) .  The frivolity began immediately!

Vicky demonstrated "Oyster Eyes"... a new dance step!

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.

Nancy & Vince always make a dinner dance a delight!

Steve Dudek made magical sounds all evening! His rendition of Amazing Grace is just out of this world

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?

Another great job by Hallmark


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.
