Movie Day and other Things

Judy and I have been busy keeping the routine going. I am surprised we have not been bored with the “routine” but we have not. Many full-timers prefer the tranquil setting of nature found in state or national parks. We too enjoy the tranquility they offer. We have found that we are enjoying the combination of many social activities and warm weather a lot also. Neither of us would like this setting more than three or four months though.

Tuesday is “cheaper day” at the local Carmike cinema so we went to the movie.  We chose “The Hobbit”(Trailer) . It is certainly one of the most hyped movies out now. I can’t deny that I did not enjoy it. I recommend the 3D version unless you have a medical condition that would be aggravated by 3D.  In reality it is just a continuation of the “Rings trilogy”. Yes, I know it is the prequel. I still prefer real movies to all the computer generated scenes. Those days are probably gone, at least in the action movie genre.
Thursday we will be meeting our friends Bill and Treva in Orlando at the Gaylord Palms Resort. Link The Gaylord Palms Resort puts on quite a spectacular Christmas program. We are going to take a walking tour of the decorations, I think. I’ll let you know about it in Friday’s Blog.

That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
Next Blog: Friday


  1. I can't wait to find out what that entails. Have a great time!

  2. Sorry to hear that the Hobbit movie didn't live up to expectations. I've read all of the books (were high school required) but love them all. Love Tolkien. Anyway..wish they'd do away with 3D. Seems like they're trying to make up for the lack of the good movie script.
