Out on the Town

This has been the second Saturday night in as many weeks that the Warden and I went out.  Last weekend we went to a wedding reception and even danced a couple times (kind of hard to do when your holding a grand-daughter between you .. but did give me a good excuse for stepping on her toes!)  But it was fun none the less.
 
And then tonight we went to the movies, ate supper out and then went to Wal-Mart before coming home.  It had been awhile since we had been to the movies ... and the $7.50 that use to buy two admissions, a tub of popcorn and a barrel of pop was about one third enough!  And I have to admit, I was thinking there was no way the movie could be THAT good ..... but I was wrong.
 
We went to see "Fireproof" .... and it was worth every penny.  I don't care if you've been married 1 year or 40 ... spend the $25 dollars and go see it (with a bucket of popcorn and a large soda pop of course).  And if you don't get blurry-eyed sometime during that movie, you're a lot tougher than me (or dead). 
 
I don't imagine that it'll win any awards from Hollywood even though the acting was good, the story-line great and I haven't heard ONE bad thing about it from any who has seen it.  However to win awards from Hollywood .... there needs to be vulgar language, nudity and some sort of political statement to blame Bush for something.
 
Anyway ..... the Warden and I sure agree on this ...... go see the movie (even if you have to float a loan from the local bank ... I hear Congress is giving them more!)  Somewhere in that movie, you'll see yourself.

Glad y'all had a good night out! I've heard good reviews on Fireproof from a lot of people.

We had a good night in here. I crashed hard after an afternoon shooting senior pictures in Old Town. (Cold!) Danny and Josh finished putting together the doors for our basement. (Yeah!) There's still the planing, sanding, finishing, and hanging to be done, but I expect they'll be up before we go fetch our Marine from San Diego. (Double yeah!)

All I've heard about "Fireproof" is good,good, GREAT! But we'll have to find a matinee. I couldn't keep Hubs awake past 8:00 p.m. As far as a "real" night out, we haven't had one in years! Some day, I'll post about "The Last Date" we had...soon after we retired and came "back home to stay". It's hilarious!!

Glad you're still young enough to enjoy a night out....now and then!

Have heard very good reports by others. But like with all movies, I will probably wait until it comes out on DVD.
