Since it's Friday, we went to the Mall for the Geezer Workout. It seemed harder this morning, probably because our fearless leader decided we needed to polka. I sat that one out!
Here's our intrepid group:
Richard doing his thing!
The one in the yellow shirt is our Fearless Leader:
Afterwards we did a nice drive around Ann arbor - I LOVE driving around Ann Arbor - did a little shopping and then came home to rest and clean up.
Jan and I went to the movies! Yaaaay! It's one of the perks of living downstate for a while. We saw Burn After Reading, which was a lot more entertaining than I was even expecting. Can't really go wrong with George Clooney, John Malkovich and Brad Pitt! It's a funny, funny movie, with two murders - go figure - it would definitely be called a dark comedy. My favorite character was Osbourne Cox (John Malkovich) - his character was aggressive, appealing, intelligent and silly all at the same time. Jan liked Brad Pitt (Chad) the best. His character was shallow and a little low on the intelligence meter - but funny and cute. Frances McDormand was hilarious as a gym employee who's willing to risk everything for cosmetic surgery - she was priceless. Who knew these actors were comic actors! You had to overlook a lot of bad language, except that after a while the bad language became part of the comedy, believe it or not. We had a great time - it was a fun, fun movie.
After the movie, we went out to dinner with Sniders at the Outback Steakhouse - another great time, and yummy too.
Drama when we got back to the apartment - my door key wouldn't open the door. We were locked out at 9 0'clock in the dark on a Friday night. Dick went to the office and learned that it wouldn't be open until Monday! For a while it seemed like we might have to spend the weekiend with Sniders, wear the same clothes all weekend, and miss tomorrow's football game. Drama, and more drama.
Then a neighbor pulled up and Dick asked her if she knew what we should do - and she went inside her place and got the emergency number for us. In no time at all, a fellow drove up and let us into our apartment! Ta Da! We were very grateful - and thank you Sniders for hanging around and offering shelter :)
An interesting day in many, many ways.
