…and that line pretty much sums up my reaction to Dark Shadows. But I’ll get to that.
First, an update on my impatiens from yesterday. It’s looking much better:
Kathleen called early this morning to tell me she had a photo op for me, so I went and played in her backyard for a while:
Pride of Barbados Freshly washed leaves Tiny pine cones
Crazy bugs… Magnolia Blossom Almost there!
The magnolias were what she called me over to see:
Fresh, pretty, and pristine. Like diamonds on the succulents…
The cats have been adorable lately too:
Firefly and her Daddy… Luther in a box…
My camera’s been getting quite a work out.
Then we went over to Barton Creek Mall to see Dark Shadows. In a nutshell, it wasn’t what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it for the most part. I was not pleased with Johnny’s make up. It was way over the top. Aside from that, they treated the source material with much greater respect than I feared. Newell didn’t like it much at all, because he wasn’t even born when most of the original TV show aired. (Which really makes me feel old…lol.)
If I ever get caught up on my RieViews over on the other blog, I will probably do a more in-depth discussion. (But I have been having so much fun over here I have sadly neglected that site…)
After we got home, it was time for the eclipse, so I joined Kathleen and Rita and her boys and we waited for it to get visible. We had a welding helmet to look through, and it did a really good job…but I couldn’t resist trying. This was the best my poor little camera could do:
Think I am about ready for bed. Hopefully my truck will be put back together tomorrow, as I still need inspection and tags on it when he’s finally finished…
Till then. 🙂
