this and that

It was a kind of quiet Memorial Day here at our house. We stayed home and grilled. Josh went to visit my parents. It was nice though. We watched some movies also. We saw We bought a Zoo and The Vow. I really enjoyed We bought a Zoo and The Vow was just ok to me. Josh had told me We bought a Zoo was not very good, but this coming from his school friends. I liked it. I was really wanting to see The Vow and was a bit disappointed. It was a little boring to me, I know it is a true story, and I sort of liked it, but it was just ok. The other movie is based on a true story also. Anyway, then Monday night we began watching The Hatfield's and McCoy's mini-series. I LOVED it. We have Silver Dollar City here which is a theme park and they really play up the Hatfield and McCoy feud being a turn of the century theme park. It was a really interesting mini-series. It had Kevin Costner in it and was on the History channel. This week Josh and I wandered out to Wal~Mart to pick up some things and then went to a local restaurant to have some ice-cream. I ended up eating lunch because I was so hungry, but Josh had some ice cream and when we got home Karl tells me we got a $500 check in the mail from a insurance policy we had canceled. It was kind of unexpected because we canceled the policy a few years ago. It was a nice surprise. I also took Josh to the orthodontist yesterday. Things are going well. They said next time they will be putting the brackets on his bottom teeth. He does not have braces on his bottome teeth yet because he had not lost all of his baby teeth. He has lost all but 1 now I believe. We had a storm last night and we had also lost our interenet earlier in the evening, so I was not able to get online last night. We do not have much planned today, but tomorrow Molly has to go to the vet for her yearly check-up. I hope you are all doing well. Have a nice weekend!!

Hi Lori! We enjoyed We Bought a Zoo. It was filmed right by our house. We had a visiting peahen and now I know where it came from- it escaped from that set. We're watching Hatfields & McCoys- we have the 3rd part recorded which we'll probably watch tonight.

Hi Lori, It's been way too long since my last visit here. So good to catch up on what's going on in your life.
I'm watching the mini-series too. Never did know what that feud was about so now I do. Pretty good huh?

Happy w/e. Hugz!

Hi Lori;

I think I'm one of the very few who tried but couldn't get into the H&M series. ;-} I am looking forward to getting "We Bought The Zoo" as I've only heard good things about it and I loved the trailer. Josh must be getting to be quiet a young man now. Have a lovely Friday and weekend my friend. Hugs

Happy June Lori!
Justin had braces and just got them off last year at 17 years old. His teeth look great but he was alway self concious while he had them on in school pictures. I have recorded the Hatfields & McCoys it looks really good. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Dru
