This weekend marks the 23rd Anniversary for LadyRanger and me. WE got a 4 day weekend 'cause the school system has closed down due to snows. It was a very nice break. It's not over yet since we have the rest of today, too! We did some shopping for dining room chairs (we're still getting by with old vinyl chairs from our college days). We found a few options in the old-furniture stores (I hesitate to say antiques) but everything will have to have work done to make 'em less rickety and more presentable. Not sure if we want to pay, and then pay more for the chairs.
You can't have this chair! MINE! You won't look nearly as cute in it.
We went to see Mr. Turner. It's a very painterly movie, as you might expect. The score was interesting. We think the composer was trying to create the sonic equivalent of Turner's visuals. Not altogether a satisfactory movie, but one worth watching. The cinematographer did a great (!) job recreating some of Turner's landscapes. I was especially moved by the recreation of Turner's Fighting Temeraire Tugged to it's Last Berth. I've always been partial to the painting, and seeing on the big screen, the scene coming to life, was moving. I've always had a fondness for tall ships and naval lore.
Nope nope nope!! You're getting those ideas of me as a ship's cat again, aren't you?!? NO WAY! This wee tabby does not deal with water! I am the Captain of the Blanket Ship, you hear me?!? The USS Fuzzy Beds Rock!! Nothing wetter than this!
We followed our excursions with a wonderful dinner at our favorite restaurant. There's a local Italian place, with real Italians in the kitchen. We always enjoy our time there.
And what did you get the kitty? Nothing, I see....hmpph.
Fear not. We managed to soothe Maddie with treats and brushies. She's always the best gift on our anniversary!
Quite right. Thank you.
Next year we get to celebrate our 6th!
