TVC - Day 13 - Maxed out!

Thursday began the way most recent days have begun......sun showers early.....rain showers later......and later became all afternoon and all is still raining as I type this morning (Friday).....and there is no place on earth I would rather be right now that South Lake Tahoe.....rain, or no rain.....and, God knows, we do need the rain.

Whilst TLE walked over to the laundry to process some of our soiled garments I worked on installing some bike parts on a friend's bike (new cassette and shifters).  By the time TLE returned I was done with the bike.  We haven't been to the movie theater in quite a while so we decided to head over to Heavenly Village Cinemas for the 2:05 pm showing of 'Mad Max: Fury Road'.......I will happily verify that there is quite a lot of 'fury' in the movie.  I told TLE as we walked out that it was the old, familiar 'Mad Max' on steroids......I wish we had gone to see the new 'Avenger' movie instead.  IMDB gives this movie 4.5 stars.....I love action movies, but this one just did not get it done for me.

On the other hand I love Heavenly Village Cinemas......they claim to be the best run independent theater in the U.S......I don't know if that is true, but they do run a tight ship.....we use the parking structure attached to the 'Village', and you can get your ticket validated by the theater.  The $8.50 shown on the ticket was the 'senior' rate.....full price adult price was $11.50.....getting expensive!

We stopped at Raley's on the way home to get a few necessities, and were home by 4:45....the rain still falling gently from the leaden skies.

Friday is the beginning of the the Memorial Day weekend.....last year it was dry, and we had quite a busy weekend, but with the current weather trends and forecasts I'm not sure how busy we will be this weekend.  We, more than likely, will be on duty at least 3 out of the four days, if not all four days....we shall see what we shall see.

Thanks for stopping by!
