The Whistler's Dream

Everybody needs a dream...
Mine is to go to Oklahoma and play whistles for The Pioneer Woman. (Having been invited, not in a "creepy stalker" kind of way, for the record.) Heck, I'd play in a pup tent in the backyard for the joy of the cows and critters. What can I say? I'm a fan.

Sneakin' off to the Drive-In with my honey!



















We did a downright spontaneous thing last night. Vicki said she was in the mood for a movie, leaning toward seeing MI3. I, on the other hand, and as might be expected, was thinking more along the lines of Over The Hedge.

So, how about both, featured in a double feature at the Getty 4 Drive-In in Muskegon. Yes - Over The Hedge, followed by MI3, on the same screen. So, we grabbed some pillows, some blankets, some munchies and beverages, and headed off to Muskegon.

Show starts at Dusk. Which, unbeknownst to us, means around 10pm. So, MI3 didn't start until around 11:30, ending around 1:30, and that put us home around 2:15 in the very AM.

But it was WAY fun! We hadn't been to a drive-in for over 20 years, and it great. Sure - sitting in your car for 5 hours has its issues and challenges, but it was a nice night all the same. Certainly won't be the last time we go this summer.

So - anybody want to go to the drive-in?... :-D

Wow...great minds do think alike! I was just thinking of how fun the drive-in is. We used to go to one in Coldwater. Same deal - two movies, only $5. Can't beat that! Now you're making me want to take a trip to Muskegon! :) Have a great one!

It is a good thing Vicki has an understanding boss. She was kind of dragging on Friday.

Just kidding, of course.

Very glad you had a good time. Vicki did have that "teen-ager, I stayed out too late, but didn't get caught" look on her face Friday. I think she had a great time.

Excellent idea and good way to spend an evening. I just wish I would have thought of it with my wife first.

We're trying to decide whether we should see over the headge in the theatre, or wait for the dvd. Is it good? Worth theatre money?

It is worth it... lots of great dialogue, cute as all get out, and William Shatner as a possum. Who could ask for anything more?

You do? Well, listen through the credits for a covert Star Trek reference. Way fun, and your kids will love it. (of course, your mileage may vary... but we liked it a lot.)
