....coming in for a landing

I know you are still looking forward to my never ending vacation tales, as in fluttering around like a social butterfly. I hate to disappoint everyone, but there is only one more night of sucking up suds, spuds and rib eyes partying to tell you about.

My only son, who took me out with his wife's gift card for a belated birthday grand finale dinner at The
Yard House in Brea, CA.

And because his wife is such a sweetheart, and my son is so generous....

..........and silly.

he invited his mother-in-law, and the kids to come too....a real live family dinner celebration.

So that tops off my vacation....the next morning I was on my way back to Central Texas.

Now, I have a dilemma.....I want to go to the movies tomorrow...not to confuse anyone, but let's call it Friday Matinee on Thursday.

Here is the dilemma....this is where I need your help. I want to see two movies.

Should I see this one?

Or what about this one.....I love me some Kathy Bates more than you know!

I have to know by twelve noon which one I should see. I really want to see both, but that's way more sitting than I can take again this week. My flight was as long as two movies, but they fed me, and pampered me.

So which one is it? I value
your opinion more than you know.

I haven't heard anything about either of them and we subscibe to Entertainment Weekly, so that's saying something. (Not that I actually get to the movies myself. =)

The family that Prey's got better reviews than the other...not that you can always count on the critics to know what is good.
I love Kathy Bates too. She is fab.
On those plastic bags...oooohhh, I suppose if you use all of them it is ok. It is the ones that end up floating in rivers, oceans etc...that are SO bad for the wildlife.
Seriously, you would not believe HOW much crap I can fit into 3 or 4square shaped bags. Just amazing. They are easier to bring into the house that way also. But I suppose your good neighbor helps you. :)
have fun

Not that you value MY opinion, but I say the Family That Preys. I've never heard of either of them but the picture and title are more interesting.

You can't go wrong with Kathy Bates. Can't wait to hear the review.

I tried to post the link to the "tackle shop" where we had dinner last week, but it's being stubborn. Just Google "Bass Pro Shops" and click on the Ashland, Virginia location. You won't believe it!

Ummmmmmmmmmm,I wish I could offer a good idea. I would say How to Lose Friends and Alienate people because that is what I do ALL the time, and I would like to watch it and see if I could get some tips so I could STOP doing that : )! Thanks for praying for Quince!
Your son looks like SO much fun. You have such a great family!

Hi Grandma J! Does the theatre have a Gold Class or whatever they call it everywhere else? Where you sit in a LaZBoy chair and drink wine and get fed and pampered? If they do, then you can see both!!!

Karen said...

Go see The Family That Preys. I can't wait to hear about it.

No wonder you flew 1st class, there was only one seat on that plane.

You son is hawt. His family is nice looking too.

The Family that Preys. My mom says that guy always makes good movies. However, MY opinion is why not Nick & Norahs Playlist? That is what I wanna see and I never go to the show, I just have 'what I wanna see' ideas and I wait for the network tv debut. It takes years and then I forget!
