I hope you had a good weekend.
I went to see Gone Girl.
It was really good.
I had read the book when it first came out.
I always worry movies will be disappointing compared to the books they originate from, but that was not the case with Gone Girl.
I also went to a “Newfie Picnic” put on by the Southern California Newfoundland Club in Long Beach.
I crashed their party in hopes of meeting “someone” who could put me in touch with “someone.”
OK, I didn’t completely crash.
I was invited by a woman I’ve met, but at the last minute she couldn’t go and I went anyway.
Honestly, Newfies must be the most difficult dogs to find … at least here in Southern California.
There just aren’t a lot of them.
I did, however, meet some nice people and nice Newfies at the event.
I couldn’t stay as long as I would have liked, but I’m still glad I went.
(I was there long enough to get some Newfie hugs … which were very healing to my heart.)
I also met up with my daughter and her long-time boyfriend.
We went to a Carribean restaurant by the beach.
We sat outside, in perfect weather, and enjoyed catching up over a couple beers and jerk chicken enchiladas.
In other words, I didn’t have an earth-shattering weekend …
But, I had a very NICE weekend.
And now …?
Well, now it’s Monday!
