At the movies

We did something a little different this afternoon and sat down to watch a movie. This was not one of our DVDs, but something Hubby was watching on youtube yesterday and as I tend to just listen in and play ‘guess the actor’, it piqued my interest so he set it up on The Big Screen.
Our ‘big screen’ is a 21″ (diameter) computer monitor so trying to read the credits at the end is impossible from where we sit, but for entertainment, it’s good enough for us and definitely makes a change.

The film was called ‘Displacement’ and about time travel, changing the past and future by playing around with quantum physics.  The cast was relatively unknown to me, though I did recognise Sarah Douglas (she was in Superman II as the lady bad guy Ursa) and Bruce Davison (he played the Senator in the 2000 X-Men movie). The storyline was a little like TV’s Quantum Leap meets The Time Traveller’s Wife as our brainy leading lady tried to fathom it all out to save her boyfriend from being murdered.  It wasn’t bad, but confusing, and Hubby fell asleep after twenty minutes as he couldn’t follow it. I stuck it to the end when all was revealed, sort of.
Spoiler: the boyfriend didn’t die, and basically, it was all her fault for dabbling.

The day has therefore gotten away from me, so any plans I had to make cards have gone clean out of the window.

I’ve just got back from walking with Kela and her owner and the beach is still packed. There was a family of 12 overflowing onto the pavement outside a beach hut and none moved out of the way to let Kela and her Mummy pass. At least the park isn’t so busy and the geese are still pooing everywhere, but no souvenir tonight.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. good having a change watching movie

  2. People are so rude and ignorant. It really upsets me.

    • They are certainly rude. Coming down into the park we’d turned down the slope rather than steps where another family (about 6 of them) were walking. They caught up though and crowded us, so I said ‘We’re being crowded’ rather loudly and they backed off. Ignorant Bs.

  3. People can be so rude and inconsiderate

    Glad you switched things up a bit! Maybe with the surge in the Delta variant there will be some restrictions put in place that makes the beach less crowded… maybe…

    • It didn’t stop visitors last year. Case numbers in the UK are rocketing, 51, 870 today and rising. Our government is irresponsible to even consider raising restrictions IMO
