Gentle Friends, in addition to my DMV visit and Lowes expedition on Friday I also hit a couple of the thrift stores I would normally get to Saturdays. I knew I wouldn't be up to running around or have the time Saturday... and thrifting is something I like doing... I found a little something...
... this great small German Volkstedt Porcelain 3-D plaque... I have a couple of these from my grandmothers' estate, they are the blue jasperware, this green jasperware piece is really unusual, in that the cherub is grimacing, I think this is an allegory of Love... the heart pierced with and arrow and the cherub being "Love Stung"... so basically in porcelain form, it says "love hurts." It's really sweet and for a few dollars how could I pass it up!!
Sunday afternoon we headed to the Alamo Drafthouse to see the Downton Abbey Movie. What's so special about this theatre is that it has a full-service menu which they keep serving during the film) and the seats are large lounge chairs and the wait staff was super!! They make some mean bourbon cocktails!! - and - some killer adult milkshakes!! It was so fun! They also have a hard and fast rule that there is no talking, no tweeting no phones at all during the film and that you'll be asked once to stop. If you don't stop then they'll eject you from the theatre immediately... no refunds. I love that they enforce the rules and the jibber-jabber and yakkity yakking are nonexistent. It's these distractions that keep me from going to see movies in theatres more frequently. The movie was really fun also, we are big DA fans and went with friends who are also big fans so it was great fun wrapping up the weekend. The ADH is located in the New Mission Theater built-in 1916, renovated in 1932 so there are lots of Art Deco details. It is a true old fashioned movie palace!! We're already planning a trip back for another fun evening.
There you go sports fans, Thanks for stopping by do stop again!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
