We Walked Out.....

Ruth Ann and I actually walked out of the movie today! Not because it was bad or offensive.
We decided to see Snitch. It had a fairly heavy story line and since it was a film based on true events - that  made it even  heavier! As I sat there thinking how LONG will it be before it's OVER - I leaned over and asked Ruth Ann if she was willing to 'Cry Uncle' and leave. Her response? (Now we were in a BIG theater with BIG surround sound!) "Well, we're getting shot at and we can't even tell the good guys from the BAD guys!!"

We got out of Dodge!!
Since we had extra time we decided to take in a Goodwill here (our USUAL Tuesday stop) AND the Salvation Army in Dallas!


They have great stuff and of course we both found some debris treasures!


Two special boutique areas of the store are decorated with genuine antiques that are NOT for sale!


The place has a LOT of Texas charm!


I didn't BUY this plaque but I couldn't resist taking a picture of it!


The tray and teapots were super finds and super cheap!
I am gathering dress up clothes and tea party things for some special little girls in my life!


I am thinking it looks as if it will all clean up nicely!


Our last stop in today's shopping was BIG Lots!
In a previous post someone recommended painting Lady Bug with the leftover paint from my kitchen carts!


So that's what I did!!


Art class was outside tonight!
Sabrina brought some yummy salads from a little gourmet shop around the corner from her office.
Wish I had taken a picture before I dug into them like I was starving to death!
She's always so thoughtful in bringing food and treats - not to mention the color copies and patterns for our current project!


I didn't eat so much that I could not have a glass of wine with Louis Dean!
We just came in and are heading off to bed now.
Tomorrow promises to be an exciting day!
My sister, Luann, is coming to visit and we will have lunch with Summer in Dallas and then she will meet the quadruplets!

God has given me so MUCH!
I give HIM my grateful heart!

LOL... Nice one Linda. I wouldn't tolerate a movie like that. I rather go out to have a cup of coffee alone in a cafe shop than watching a boring and heavy movie with a partner.

Life's too short to read a dull book or to watch a movie that just isn't working for ya. Love that you got up and walked out. Good for you two!

Looked that film up and wow! Looks a wee bit too wham-bang for me. I don't think I'd even have gone into it. :-)

Oh well, we live and learn. :-)

Enjoy today!

Happy May!!!

I think you did the right thing...walking out! I only recall doing that one time...and by now I've forgotten the name of the movie.

My husband and I are doing a health/weight loss cleanse thing where we aren't suppose to have wine for a month. A MONTH!? I'm not sure I can do that. I'll keep you posted. :)

Thank you so much, once again, for your encouraging words on my blog. I found the book you mentioned on Amazon (one of the very few free shipping sites that include Hawaii) and I ordered it this morning. Can't wait to dive in. It definitely sounds like something I need!

Linda, Some times movies are over hyped and not worth the money or time to watch them. I find it hard to watch movies that have computerize action in them.. miss the real special effects. Glad you had fun junking. xoxo,Susie
