Fast and Furious...Times Three....
Why so early? We wanted to catch a movie in a new theater on that end of town....It takes an hour to get out to the north side where that is. And we wanted to have breakfast at Cracker Barrel before the 9:00 showing of Fast and Furious Six.
OK...Now you know. I have a weakness for movies with good car stunts and lots of action...This one was pretty good as the series goes.
If you go see it, be sure to watch for the world's longest airport runway! Towards the end of the movie, the bad guy runs his car up onto a reallllly big transport plane. The next ten to fifteen minutes is taken up with the plane getting up to speed and trying to get in the air...All while cars are crashing, hooking themselves to the plane with grappling hooks and everyone is shooting at everyone else. Finally after we were about ten minutes into the scene, Walter leaned over to me and whispered, "Just how long IS this runway?". I adopted a wait and see attitude....
Anyway, when we got back, I started hunting for a new project.
I found Tessie in the Archeologist's office, chasing snakes. For her, that's a fun sport. If she catches them, she just lets them go and starts from the beginning. At least it keeps her out of other trouble.
That gave me a new direction.
I remembered that I still have three of the four boxes that I bought at the time. They were raw wood and I bought them at Big Lots, when it was still McFrugel's...It's been a while.
I got out a can of stain and did the other three at once. Now all I have to do is figure out what to put inside.
Shall we play a game? One of the flat topped boxes will be for you to decide on. First of all, suggestions for what kind of theme it will have.
The catch is....You will write the suggestion and I will pick one. Then I will ask for things like wall color or wallpaper. You will suggest. I will pick one that I think will work. Then other things like shelving or something else to go on the inside of the lid. Keep in mind it will be in the vertical position, like the one behind Tessie.
I will be working on at least one of the other ones at the same time...To alleviate boredom. I will show you that. I will not show you the one with your suggestions until it is finished.
Are you ready? Today it is suggestions for theme or type of room, please.
If nobody responds on a particular day, I get to choose. I'm waiting........
See you tomorrow.
