Day off for a movie...

Yesterday was a major clean up day around here... I had washed up the Motorhome the day before, and did some sundry further cleaning on it, and managed to put a coat of Mothers Paste Wax on the Cruze to get it just a shinning! Judy spent the day yesterday cleaning up the interior of the Motorhome in a big way. We had so much condensation this fall while up in Woodstock, it actually started to turn to mould in a few areas, which we all know is no good at all. It is really dry down here, and all that condensation is now gone, so Judy cleaned and washed down all the interior walls, and crevises to get it back to spic and span again.

Today was supposed to be the Street Sale for all residents, as you put your junk good stuff you have out on the corner of your lot for sale. Problem was, Mother Nature had different ideas though... it was misting rain all morning, so it all got cut real short. We had the bicycles out to tour around, but we gave up, as it was simply too much rain.

We thought we would try some of the local stores to see if their roofs were leaking, but they were all OK and full of shoppers... We made our way to the Eagle Ridge Mall, and enjoyed lunch and then headed over to the Theatre. We wanted to catch the 3rd film to be released in the Hunger Games saga... Mockingjay!


Even though there were only 3 books written in the series, they have decided to make 4 movies out of it, dividing the last book into 2 movies....

The movie was good, and has the star power of Jennifer Lawrence as Catniss Everdeen. However I did not quite find the movie as good as the first two... probably for a few reasons, one being they only put a movie out every year, so it has been 3 years now since I read the books, so some of the shine has worn off. Also, the 3rd book had a big change in plot, which reflects in the movie as well. Overall though, very good, and yes, I will probably pay my money to catch the last movie this time next year. The Movie was released yesterday of course, just in time for American Thanksgiving next week. The Theatre we attended today, had 25 showings of the movie TODAY alone! $15.00 was the Sr. price for Judy and I to see it today. (oh, ya, I bought a box of Milk Duds as well...)

When we got home we had a nice surprise Facetime Call from Chris, Kristina, and the kids... they are doing well, and report it was raining today on top of all that snow that came down the past few days.

I grabbed a couple screen shots at the end of the call... Charlie's turned out a little funny... not sure what is going on with his hair there... Gwenny was blowing us a kiss.

Nice and warm here in Florida today, even if it was overcast... about 75 deg. F, which is very comfortable.

Till tomorrow...


  1. It is nice to have the heat back to normal in Florida. We arrived at Caliente' Springs Resort, in Desert Hot Springs, as you so well know, and it was 75 above too. Nice change in temperatures for us too.

  2. Enjoy the warm weather there while you have settled in.
