Said To Myself This Is Very Strange…

…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. 🙂
