It appears that, unintentionally, I lied to ya'll on Friday. The last thing I said was that I would "see" you again on Monday. And this is Wednesday. Ooops. My bad.
Hope you've had a great few days. We absolutely did!
We started out with a Minock Day! Been way too long. As you know, Minock Days are always the best days. They invited us up to just relax in their pool and let me tell ya, on a super hot summer Florida day, that is awesome. Tim and I have lived here now for six years (already??) and we are accustomed to Florida summer. We know it's going to be hot and humid and potentially for a few months. But this past week was a little beyond the pale. Every day was not just hot but "weather advisory" hot. The temperature might have been in the low 90's but the 'feels like' was over 100. Yikes! We always enjoy Minock Day. We always talk and laugh and eat and talk and laugh some more. But add in a nice cool pool on an especially hot day and now you have added "Ahhhhhh" to the party. It was Awesome!
Tim and I also tried to beat the heat with a visit to our local non-pool water. Come sunset we wandered over to the jetty and were lucky enough to time to visit with some cooler air, a few dolphins and a gorgeous sunset:
Tim, who is such a smarty pants, had another great idea which was to go to the movies! Yeah! Those places are WAY air conditioned. Great Plan! But we didn't just go to any movie theatre, we went to the CineBistro. It looks like an ordinary theatre from the outside:
But the inside is so much more ummm, what is the descriptor that I am looking for? Lux. That's it. Lux. Tim ordered the tickets online so we walked in the door, 30 minutes ahead as instructed, tickets already in hand. Well actually on his phone, but you know what I mean. We had great seats, top row, center, perfect view. The aisles were nice and wide so there was no skootching through trying to not step on people's feet saying," excuse me, pardon me, sorry". Nope there was PLENTY of room to get by. And the seats! Oh my goodness! Each seat was a leather, or leather-like maybe, recliner (RECLINER!) with two cup holders per patron. So comfy cozy. There was also a swing-away tray for each seat. Why would we need a tray, you ask?
Well it's right there in the name cine-bistro. This is the bistro part. As soon as we were seated a lovely young lady came up to hand us our menus and explain how it all worked. We made our selections which were brought out by an equally nice young man. We could have chosen just appetizers, popcorn and candy, just drinks or nothing at all, by the way. By the time the previews were over, we were finished and our trays removed and we settled into enjoy the movie (our first movie in a theater in several years by the way). We saw Top Gun which was awesome!
Somewhere in the middle there we celebrated Father's Day, for this guy here. He's so silly :)
I've been having a wee bit of a connectivity problem here so while I'm typing this up right now, I am not absolutely certain when it will be posted. But I'll keep trying! And hopefully, I will see you here again tomorrow!
Hugs all 'round
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
