Quiet Weekend

We've been on the go a lot the past few weeks and ran out of gas this weekend.  The weather also turned rainy and chilly on Saturday, so it was a good time to stay inside where it was warm and dry.  

We rented the movie "Captain Phillips" and invited Dick & Sue over for dinner and the movie.  Gerry made some of her superb chili and we all managed to eat a couple bowls of it.  Nothing better than a hot bowl of chili on a damp day and hers really hit the spot.  I had picked up a Sock It To Me cake for dessert, but we had to wait a while before we checked it out.

Later we watched "Captain Phillips" and enjoyed it very much.  Even though we knew the outcome, it was suspenseful and interesting.  They had some great shots of the inside of one of those big cargo transport ships.  The Somali pirates were not real actors, but gave great performances and we very believable.  If you haven't seen the move and get a chance to, take it.  It is worth the price to see.

Sunday we watched the superbowl and turned it off early.  I don't think I have ever seen a superbowl team make as many costly mistakes as the Broncos did today.  It was hard to believe they are the best the AFC has to offer.  You have to give the Seahawks credit.  They came to play and really put the pressure on the Broncos.  I sure am glad I didn't have any money on the Broncos.  What a thrashing they took today with a final score of 43-8.

I always like to include a picture, so I checked through my files and came up with this one taken circa 2001 down in Key West, FL.  I always liked this photo and the happy looks on the grandkids and Gerry on a huge piece of driftwood.

We have big plans for Monday and will be going to bed early tonight.  More to come on Monday.



  1. I really liked Captain Phillips and I cannot believe Hanks didn't get nominated for an Oscar. I wanted the Seahawks to win but I really wanted to watch a football game and that didn't happen.

  2. First things first, that was NOT a game, Denver never showed up- frustrating when 1 team "rolls over "! On top of that, the commercials were ordinary! Now to the important stuff--- I want a picture of Mom & the kids. At least a 5 x7!!! Sure do miss the Keys!!!!!
