Here's A Shocker: We Actually Went to A Movie Theater!

 February 16, 2022

   Yesterday, Kathy and I did something we haven't done in over two years. No, not that. We drove down to Desert Ridge Mall and had lunch outside, at Barrio Cafe, then walked over to Barnes & Noble and I bought a C-note worth of new books (thanks to a B&N gift card from Carole Glenn for my B-Day last December). Of course, I had to first check out their massive magazine racks.

   And then, here's the crazy part, we walked down to AMC Theaters to see if there was a movie we might want to see. Chose "Licorice Pizza" and watched it in a big, ol' empty theater with one other person. Haven't been in a theater since the pandemic began in February of 2020. Not sure how these theaters have survived and by the looks of it, they have a long way to go.

   Building out the next issue (May). Have some ideas on how to make that groovy.

   My son, Thomas, is teaching in Japan, and he has a favorite author. He ordered nine titles from a book store in San Diego and had them delivered to our house, and the box arrived today, via UPS.

Grahan Greene is in the house!

   At Tommy's recomendation, I'm going to read "The Comedians"
