Hope all you dads out there had a relaxing Father’s Day weekend! Hubby had a fabulous one. Our oldest son called Thursday to let us know he’d be coming for the weekend – an unexpected and very welcome surprise. The youngest son who just moved to Austin arranged to Facetime hubby Saturday so they could smoke a cigar together and discuss our son’s first week in his new city. The rest of the afternoon was spent with friends lounging around in their pool with our beverages of choice and eating grilled pizzas. Sunday was about watching the US Open (hubby’s a big golfer) and grilling out burgers topped with crisp, thick bacon and avocados before our oldest son left. Hard to beat a weekend like that.
Our oldest son’s cat, Sora, came with him – much to Bond’s usual chagrin. Whenever she’s here, she immediately takes over his cat tower and has the audacity to ignore his threats. She refuses to bend the knee. and is all about girl power. Bond resigned himself to spending most of the weekend on the screened porch pouting, a place Sora doesn’t usually grace with her presence. The humidity does horrible things to her sleek fur.
Last night I finally got around to watching Army of the Dead on Netflix. If you’re a zombie fan, it’s two and a half hours well spent. After a zombie invasion, Las Vegas has been walled off and will soon be nuked. Dave Bautista’s (Guardians of the Galaxy) team has been hired to enter the city and steal millions of dollars from a casino before the bomb is dropped. I correctly predicted which team member would go down first and spent most of the movie talking to the characters and telling them what to do. After watching The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and plenty of other zombie movies over the past decade, I feel I’m adequately qualified to offer advice. The ending left the door open for a sequel, and I’d definitely watch it.
Have a great week!
