Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 6th day of May, 2018.

The sun has already been up for a few hours and it is to be +27 degrees celsius today.

Just on our way out for a walk, before coffee and then I am going to pick up trash before the heat sets in for the day.

We had a good Saturday with a later than start day.

Did the laundry, cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed and dusted.

Took some recycling out to the garage.

Enjoyed coffee.


My neighbour and I left for the movie at 2:50 p.m. as the start time was 3:25 p.m.

The theatre is about a ten minute drive from home.

We arrived …. handed in our on-line receipts and picked up the movie ticket.

Picked up treats.

Popcorn and drinks.

Went to the theatre and found our seats.

We sat and chatted while the theatre filled up around us.

The popcorn was most tasty.

I enjoyed the “regular coke” as this is the only occasion that I drink pop.

We were in the 3-D theatre with some of the seats that moved to the movie (not sure the name of them).

There were a great deal of children in the theatre and oddly enough they were not noisy.

All of a sudden it was start time 3:25 p.m.

The screen was blank.

A young man came in and said something but we did not hear him.

We remarked at this and a guy in front of us told us that the movie would start in a couple of minutes.

Then it was fifteen minutes past the start time.

Then 20.

Someone else came in and said that they had to change a bulb and it would start in five minutes.

Then it was 40 minutes.

I guess they had to get someone to come in to change the bulb???

A young woman came in and told us that “they were sorry but we would not be able to see the movie.”


One little boy behind us said that he did not want to leave when his Dad tried to explain what had happened.

I guess they did not wish to hold up the next viewing.

Lots of super disappointed people in the audience.

Some will likely not have an opportunity to see it again.

After spending $25.00 on treats and the passes were $19.00 each.

On our way down the steps of the theatre – a woman on crutches slipped.

I was close by and helped her up and gave her my arm as we descended the steps to the bottom.

Thankfully she was okay.

It was funny as we had commented on her before – how she managed to get up those steps in virtually darkness.

Let’s face it the little light on each step does not help that much.

At the landing:

They handed out two movies to each person in the theatre.

I suppose we were compensated fairly but I still mentioned that we all treats and would have to purchase them again.

So disappointing.

The young man that was handing the complimentary passes to me – did not say a word in return to my comments.

So that was that.

So much for a movie.

I only get out to maybe one a year ….. this would have two.

Well time to get going …. Al needs a walk.

So much for seeing the new Avengers movie.

I did however watch an older one last night and then watched the most recent episode of “Agents of Shield.”

Oh well.

Not the end of the world.

But very disappointing.


Have an awesome Sunday.

Special Hello to:  all those folks who were able to see the new Avengers Movie.

Always, Carol & Alvin





Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 18th day of October, 2015.

The sun is shining and I am awake after a great Saturday.

The Steeped Tea Open House was a great success and last night out with my young friends for dinner and a movie was AWESOME.

We had dinner at EARLS at West Edmonton Mall ….. three of us had this great salad; I think it was named Santa Fe something ….. SO YUMMY.

After dinner we went to the THEATRE at the mall and saw “THE INTERN” which has to be one of the funniest movies that I have ever seen.

We laughed …. We cried ….. it was so good.

There was even a bit of clapping in parts.

Just like the movie “older person with young people” …… we had a great time.

I think we definitely can learn from each other.

So if you are young then you should start hanging out with someone much older and if you are older try hanging out with someone young.


The young ones are just as knowledgeable about “stuff” as we are …. just different stuff.

So we can learn from each other.

So my Saturday was definitely EPIC.

Time to go and have some breakfast: the one of champions …. toast with honey …. well maybe not.


Did I mention that I actually had a couple of drinks with supper ….. yes, I did.

CAESARS …. so yummy …. I love the tomato and spice part …..

Yes, we had dessert and all felt like we were waddling to the theatre.

Well time to get this show on the road.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello to: my sister who yes tonight …. SKYPE …. let me know the time….. maybe after supper around 7:30 p.m. ( I will make sure to go for a walk with Alvin before supper).

Always, Carol and Alvin
