I rarely get a whole weekend off, & often try to juggle my schedule with trips trades just to do so. Since Doris retired it's not such a panic to get ea weekend off, since everyday is a weekend for her, now. However, it IS still great when I hold one off. This weekend was going to be so great... but then it rained both days. DRAT. The last weekend of the summer & it's pouring at the Shore.
So we went for brunch then went to a movie; Edelweiss which was fun. The music & dancing were GREAT & there were some gorgeous black women, not to mention a cameo by Patti LaBelle! (I LOVE PATTI !)
Incidentally Dana Owens (Queen Latifa) was making a movie in the parking lot there. This was in Newark.
A relaxing night in bed, watching TV followed. And we stayed in bed till noon today! Yea!!
Finally got out & went for brunch. Afterwards went to an open house around the corner from where we live. It is a BIG french provencial that is beautiful & I SO wish wecould afford it. But $835,000 is impossible not to mention the $8,000/yr taxes. Damn. I wish I were monetarily rich. I would just love to buy it, take Doris there & hand her the keys! Oh well. Great fantasy, & it was fun to imagine living there together! So much for that.
Went food shopping, came home & Doris cooked a delish chicken/spinach/sweet potato dinner. Yum, Girlfriend can cook! Then we settled back in bed to watch The Emmy's for 4 hours. Wow, those dresses look so pretty, but all that silicon; so many breast implants. geesh. And those actresses have to be so skinny. They must never eat. Maybe it is easier if you are always around other people that never eat. They must have been SO starving during that show. I must say that I was happy about 24 winning a lot, by the way! I really dig that show. And it was fun seeing all 3 original Charlie's Angels together again.
Btw, on my last flight in I had Mimi Rogers & her family onboard. She was really nice & very pretty, younger looking in person & thin. She & her husband were really sweet, good parents to their children. When she came up to the john, she told us that her 1st husband (Tom Cruise) was not crazy when she knew him, but that it was 15 yrs ago when they were married. She was just as nice as she could be, & seemed like a really kind person.
Going to read all my blog favorites, now. And sleep; it's already past midnight... Gotta fly out this evening so I'll see y'all wed.
