7:58 am - Wednesday - January 3rd - Grand Canyon - 34º F, humidity 18%, wind 5 mph out of the east by southeast......partly cloudy with a forecast high of 53º F......today's BP is 126/81!!

Tuesday was a shared day off for TLE and I.....she is off again on Wednesday, and I on Thursday.  I needed a haircut in the worst way possible, we needed to do some shopping and we wanted to have lunch with TLE's sister Phyllis and niece Christina......what better day to see the latest Star Wars installment: The Last Jedi!  We invited our friend Art along for the ride, and left our home around 8:45 am hoping to be in Flagstaff in time for the 10:10 am showing at the Harkins Theater off Marketplace.  We arrived at the theater at exactly 10 am, and were in our seats at 10:10 am just as the movie trailers began......

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

......the running time for the movie was listed at 2.5 hours....it didn't seem like that long to me.....the movie was totally engrossing, and one of my favorites to date.  Good to see Mark Hamill reprising his role as Luke Skywalker, and Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia, even though she has been deceased over a year now.  IMDB gives this latest Star Wars chapter 4 stars out of 5, and Rotten Tomatoes a 4.5 out of 5.....that is about right for us.

We were out of the movie theater and in our VW by 12:50 pm, and parking at the Lumberyard by 1:03 pm.  We met Phyllis and Christina there, and had a wonderful lunch.....the food and beer there is exceptional.....once again TLE and I had their Pumphouse Porter.

Next up was a haircut for moi at the local Supercuts, which is right across the street from the local Fry's Supermarket, so TLE and Art dropped me off and headed over to the store to do some shopping.  I was able to sit right down within two minutes of entering the Supercuts, and was exiting with lowered ears 15 minutes later.  I joined TLE and Art finishing up their shopping, and helped them put the groceries, etc. away in the car.  Next up was Walmart where TLE needed to buy her paper goods.....TP, paper towels, Kleenex, etc., and while we were at it I bough a new LCD flat screen TV.....our Phillips Smart TV, which we love, has begun to have some issues after 4 years.....the new 32" Smart TV only cost us $135.....amazing!

By the time we finished at Walmart, and then took on 8 gallons of premium gasoline it was 3:45 pm and time to head for home......we pulled into our site by 5:05 pm, just before sundown.....perfect!  It was a great day in Flagstaff, and the entire trip was without event, or uneventful as most would say.  I'm feeling like my old self, and happy to be above ground and still enjoying life.

Thanks for stopping by!
