Happy Long Weekend!

Hope you USA'ers had a great long Memorial Day Weekend!!
Friday we went to a new place in town "Quaker Steak and Lube"
 I had the  BEST Bloody Mary ever and...this pork BBQ wrap with Jalapeno coleslaw that I'm still paying for, man, was it GOOD and I can't wait to eat it again!
On Saturday, the Mister told me to come outside and see what was movin' through our yard
I thought it was a snake at first, he had his neck out so far!  He wasn't so friendly when I got closer!
We went to see this movie:
Win Win 
(aren't you glad I told you the title? You know, in case the poster didn't give it away!)
When we were in line to buy the tickets the Mister said "what is this movie about?" and I said "I have no idea, I just liked the poster." (yes, i do judge a book by the cover) Plus it was a 2011 Sundance Film Festival selection and I'm a big fan of those indie films.  When we got inside there were only 2 other people in the theater and then, they started rolling in... they came by orthopedic shoes, walkers, and motorized scooters.  the Mister and I just sat there with our mouths open as they came in at a snails pace, all of them over the age of 75!  We looked at each other and just started laughing and he asked me again "what is this movie about?".  We thought perhaps there were going to be prune juice shooters or secret codes for restaurant discounts given out.  It was just weird.  Finally, a family with 2 teen age girls came in, but besides the girls and us, everyone had silver hair and an AARP card!  The movie was really cute and moving and I still have no idea why it attracted so many Seniors.  The downfall to the Seniors being there...they whisper loud, really, really LOUD!
I finished my weekend this way
My 1st ice cream of the year!
next time I'll brush my hair...
Later Tators!!

Mint chocolate chip-- mmmm my fave!!

That is funny about all the old people but hey at least they tried to whisper, right?

That restaurant - what a strange name. Does it look like a gas station on the inside??

...and you know you aren't supposed to mix smoked meat and coleslaw. That is an accident waiting to happen, my friend.

My digestive system just did a cartwheel when I read "jalapeno coleslaw." Maybe the old folks (watch out, I'm one myself) thought the movie was about how to beat Medicare.
