Catching up...

So, hubby and I went out on a date Saturday night, and I just have to tell you how much I enjoyed it.

We went to Lexington Green, where Comedy Off Broadway is located. We planned to eat dinner first before we went to the show. On the patio of the seafood restaurant there at the Green, we heard somebody playing Hotel California by the Eagles. But we couldn't see them. When we finally got into position to see who was playing, we were stunned.

It was a little girl. 'Little' meaning 11, maybe 12. Long dark hair, jamming away on her guitar, doing bar chords, singing, working foot pedals to loop her music. She was spectacular. She gave me goosebumps just watching her. Unfortunately, that was the end of the set, and her dad started packing everything up. I never did figure out what her name was, but I have a feeling we'll see her again. She was THAT good!

And Roy Wood was good too. Hubby and I were worried, because our table was in the very front. We thought for sure we'd get picked on. But we didn't. I left that place in tears, I was laughing so hard. It's Monday, and I can still feel my sore tummy muscles. He wasn't exactly politically correct, but he was hilarious.

It was only about 9:30 when we got out of there, and not wanting to admit we were getting older and wanted to go home, we decided to go to a movie. Anybody seen the new Star Trek? Coming from one who has seen pretty much everything Star Trek, it was an awesome movie. Action packed, a lot of good backstory, great characters. I want to see it again.

Hubby and I had a wonderful date. Unfortunately, he developed a cold yesterday from allergies, and he's been sleeping the weekend away trying to get better. Doesn't it just figure?

Have a good Memorial Day all. Be sure to remember the meaning of the day. The picture above was just heartwrenching, and a reminder of what might have been lost.


  1. Aw, Jennifer, that picture makes me tear up. I'm glad you and hubby had such a good time. I've never been to a comedy club. You guys were brave for sitting up front. I can't wait to see the new Star Trek movie, but I'll probably have to wait until it comes out on video. I'm a Trekkie from back in the 60's. The original show was much more than it appeared to be on the surface. Groundbreaking on so many levels. Yeah, Bill Shatner is a putz, but that show was fantastic. And I've watched all the continuing series that came after and the movies. Love it all!

  2. Devon, it was really good! There was a lot of back story filled in. Do you know why kirk always called McCoy 'Bones'? According to this movie, McCoy had just gotten divorced when he met Kirk. He complained that the ex had left him nothing except his bones. And do you know Ohura and Spock were an item?
    That's all the hints I'm going to give you. You need to try to go see the movie on big screen. I don't know if it will be as thrilling on a tv.
    I know, easier said than done, right?

  3. We saw the movie today. LOVED IT! Loved the young Kirk, Spock, and the rest of the crew. Bones was hilarious! It was good to see Captain Pike looking so good too.

  4. It gave you the story as to why he was in the chair, though, didn't it? Glad you liked it. Thanks for stopping by!
