Girls' Night Out

There is nothing better on a Tuesday night (or any night for that matter) than sitting in a movie theater with a bunch of women (and one sensitive kind of guy) watching a chic flick starring Richard Gere! When his face first appeared on the big screen you could almost hear the single intake of breath of all the women. That man is sooooo good looking! 

The movie was the Nights in Rodanthe, with Diane Lane, who was a wonderful supporting actress for Richard. The movie was based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks, which I also enjoyed. There wasn't a dry eye in the house when the lights came up (well, maybe Mr. Sensitive was able to keep his act together) and I was glad that I went to the show with Sally and Krista (although I know that Jim  would have gone with me if I had asked). So if you are looking for a movie with a good story and one good looking man, check out the Nights in Rodanthe. I give it Two Thumbs Up.

And now for Two Thumbs Down-Cloris Leachman on Dancing with the Stars! I cannot stand watching her on that show-last night I left the room when it was her turn. Now I missed  the elimination show tonight so I still have hope that she got voted off and the show can return to its previous level of respectability and class. By the way, I am rooting for Derek and Brooke-Derek has been my favorite pro for the past 2 seasons. 

I got an e-mail from my  niece, Amy in Michigan, who reports that her son, Andrew was the star of his football team at a recent game. As the QB, he scored TD's by passing and rushing! Andrew is a multi-sport athlete and as a middle schooler, the high school coaches have got to be looking forward to his arrival on the  high school scene.  Congratulations Andrew! Keep up the good work and keep us posted onfuture games. 

I have had a few requests for additional photos from the wedding weekend so here are a few more, in random order, with captions below them.
You know you are in the south when you drive by cotton fields!

Here is a view of the pool with the waterfall, which is in front of the hot tub. There are rocky steps leading up to the hot tub. Click on the photo to enlarge to see the details. 

Jim, Tucker and I toured the Gibson Guitar factory in Memphis.

Saturday lunch on Beale Street with 3 Beale Big A$$ Beers.

Tucker served as a golf cart driver at the wedding, delivering sweet young things from where they parked their cars up to the wedding grounds.

I guess I will go to bed. The Presidential debate drones on. I have tried to be a good citizen and learn what I can about the candidates but I've reached my limit tonight.

Hope all is well.

Just in case you have not heard..I am very sorry to report that because of Misty's injury, no one was removed from Dancing with the Stars. Of course, that means another week of Cloris. Maybe you could head for some liquid refreshment when she next appears. [Of course, I mean Diet Coke!] I saw Nights in Rodanthe all by my lonesome one night (sneak preview) while my hubby was at Bells. I loved it too and he is still willing to go see it with me again. What a guy!
