Friday Fun

     A person can only stay inside so long, before the need to get out and about takes over.  Recently we saw McFarland USA advertised when we saw another of Kevin Costner's films.  Today, I talked hubby into going to a matinee; what else do retired people do when the weather is cold? Usually, we go to Tuesday matinees because of the price break. A couple of bits of trivia-one of my dearest friends grew up with Kevin and I heard about the fun times she had with his family.  Secondly, my closest friend from my teens coached Cross Country in Carmel Ca. and her team ran against McFarland  for years-she told me they were an incredible team!  Also, part of the plot revolves around my hubby's high school in Palo Alto, Ca.  I attended another high school in Palo Alto. 
I have to tell you that this movie is one of my all time favorite movies!  If you are looking for something to do this weekend, take in this movie-you'll be glad you did.
We don't have plans for the weekend; more snow is forecast so we will probably stay in.
I hope you have a fantastic evening.


  1. I'm glad to hear you were able to get out and see a movie. We had snow yesterday but were able to get out a bit today...been quite a long winter. Hope you continue to feel better with each day, have a great weekend

  2. I saw commercials for it on TV and thought that it sounded good. Thanks for the thumbs up. It'll definitely go in our list.

  3. I am so glad you felt like going to the movie.
    Se,, your getting better!

  4. Our plans are to see this on Tues. as it's cheap Tuesday. Costner is one of my favorite actors.

  5. That is great getting out and about and doing something relaxing like seeing a movie. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Thanks for your review. I can't wait to see it!

    Your Pals,
