The Weekend Without Pictures

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!

    Newfie hugs are the best!! I’m sure they were just what the doctor ordered!

    I also saw and loved Gone Girl (but had not read the book! I’m on the waiting list at the library to pick it up and read it. I’ve moved on to another Gillian Flynn book after seeing the movie!

      Newfies do give great hugs.

      Glad you had a chance to see Gone Girl.
