Great time had by all yesterday. The Bowlmor did a fabulous job arranging the party – we only had to show up. Food items that I pre-selected were regularly replenished by our personal waiter, beverages, shoe rentals, three hours of unlimited bowling. All included. We had lanes in the corner so we had some privacy. A manager came over at least twice to ask if we were all okay and if everything was as we expected. I said yes yes yes.
I bowled the worst, even getting a gutter ball rolling the ball between my legs down the lane. Mr. EOS was the best, a few strikes under his belt. The grandkids lane knew when they were up and the gutter bumper rose out of the floor. We adults should have done that too! We brought our own birthday cake (the only non Bowlmor food allowed in), sang and feted the birthday boy, then parted ways a little before 3p. It was unanimous – bowling was a perfect choice.
I did NOT watch the Oscars last night – for a couple of reasons – this year not only had I not seen all the movies nominated for Best Film, but there wasn’t one movie that drew me in as worthy of seeing. Some movies nominated I never heard of, and I think I’m pretty movie savvy.
The titles in italics were unknown to me.
Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, La La Land, Lion, Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight
Of course, I am loving hearing that there was a major goof-up. Nothing is funnier than actors who can’t act reading a card they kinda think is wrong but not being able to think outside the card and maybe SAY the card handed them was wrong. Love it. Love it. I heard here were the predicable anti-Trump speeches. Ugh, another reason not to watch. I believe the only GOOD news I heard is that the Oscars means the END of the awards season.
Today brings some basic boring house chores, picking up fallen limbs and righting a fence board or two. Also, writing the final draft of our letter to Half Moon management. We’ve tried to add enough paragraphs of a positive nature rather than being all Negative Nelly, but bottom line we are asking for some money back. Let’s see how that rolls.
I never posted any Peeps photos from Half Moon, mostly because it was a week with many teens there and I felt uncomfortable taking photos of kids. But this one photo captured the essence of what bothered us the whole time – The Ubiquitous Selfie.
Monday it is. Kinda gray outside but no snow, so I guess that means Yay?! Have a good day.
