Friday night: Had the good fortune to watch one crazy storm! Pat and I went out after work for dinner and drinks, and as we were leaving the restaurant, the storm started. Niether of us thought it was going to be as bad as it was! We’d driven over to Target, and had to sit in the car for a good 10 minutes, waiting for the torrential rain and fierce thunder & lightning to stop. Poor Pat! She’s like my grandmother and my dogs…not liking the storms so much! I, of course, was taking pictures Didn’t get a lightning shot, tho, dammit!
Saturday: Dad and I went up to Parker’s Maple Barn in Mason NH for breakfast, then we drove around the back roads, just enjoying the scenery. We stopped at Pickity Place, also in Mason and I took some pictures:
Pickity Place serves 5-course gourmet luncheons, 3 seatings a day, reservations required and has an herb garden, flower garden and gift shop; it’s also where Elizabeth Orton Jones illustrated her retelling of Little Red Riding Hood story.
Michelle called that night about 8 and spontaneously asked if I wanted to go to the movies with her. I adore spontaneity, and said hell yes! We saw Lady in the Water; once again, critics be damned! I really liked this movie, and funnily enough…I don’t care much for the director, M. Night Shyamalan’s OTHER movies, Sixth Sense especially. I’ve heard a rumor he may be tapped to direct the 6th Harry Potter movie, The Half-Blood Prince…hmmm…
We saw some previews for three other movies that look awesome: The Pursuit of Happiness, featuring Will Smith; Children of Men directed by Alfonso Cuarón (he also directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and starring Julianne Moore & Clive Owen; and World Trade Center, featuring Nicolas Cage.
Sunday: Met Michelle at the Boston Museum of Science today to see Body Worlds 2. It’s an exhibit of human bodies and organs that have been preserved by a process called Plastination. Fascinating exhibition, but a bit disturbing at the same time. We also saw a movie at the Omni Theater called The Human Body. Finally, I checked out the Butterfly Garden and got a couple nice shots:
How was YOUR weekend?
