It started a day early, hanging with Dave’s sister, Sue (a girl’s night!) of hors d’œuvre and a movie (Sweeney Todd) at her house! We also enjoyed a couple small glasses of Southern Tier’s crème brûlée stout…WOW!!! Picked that up my last visit to Jamestown, NY at a brewery tour.
my coworker and I have a habit of flipping the finger at each other as a joke…so I came in to work on Friday and found this on my computer and laughed
That evening, Dave and I made nachos, then went to see the movie, “Emperor”. It was … strange? Not particularly well-acted? I don’t know…Matthew Fox played a WWII general and I kept thinking it was a weird plot line from the TV show “Lost” LOL! Tommy Lee Jones as General MacArthur was…interesting. I think I fell asleep for a bit …
Saturday we had Ralphy and originally our plans were to head to Maine to see if the outline of an old shipwreck was still visible on Long Sands Beach. Unfortunately, Ralphy had a cough, and it was cooooold out so we didn’t want to aggravate the cough.
I took Ralphy to the library, where we looked at books and checked out a couple, then to my work because I forgot my phone charger there. Then home to relax and chill. Dave went out to run some errands and ended up coming home with Popeyes for lunch, lobsters & steamers for dinner and two new movies, Spiderman 3 for Ralphy and Life of Pi for me (I LOVE that movie, although I have to close my eyes during the whole hyena-baboon-zebra scene).
We tried to get Ralphy to touch a lobster but he was having none of it. Still a bit skeptical of it, as you can see:
Sunday I met a friend at the Owl Diner for a St. Patrick’s Day pancake
I snapped this shot on the way out…the cars in the owl’s belly made me think of that song, Rapture, by Blondie.
Meanwhile, Papa and Ralphy enjoyed some guy time:
Since the new band that Dave is in had a gig on St. Patrick’s Day, Ralphy and I headed to McDonald’s Playland (still too chilly to be outside for any length of time)
And then came time to leave…he was not happy
Note the ketchup and apple slices…yes, he dips…yes, he’d probably eat ketchup as a meal.
Early in the morning, I’d put a pork shoulder in the crock pot, poured in a two liter bottle of rootbeer and cooked it on low for 8 hours. The result:
Dave said it was “skrumdiddilyumptuous”
How was your weekend?
