JP’s practice run for Halloween as Vince Neil of Motley Crue!

Oldest has been carving pumpkins for JP for years and Motley Crue is his latest! JP is going to be Vince Neil for Halloween. I know, so proud, lol! And we now have snow and more forecast for tomorrow, so I’m afraid he’ll be covering up those tattoo sleeves with his winter coat!

Anniversaries…

Today would have been my 38th wedding anniversary so I’m having a kind of tough time dealing with life right now.  Last year we went out to dinner; this year I’m going to Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery to spend some time with him…

Just a Thought…

Went to see Mama Mia, Here We Go Again, even though I hadn’t seen the first movie, because all the hype and reviews about this one were so good.  I have to tell you I liked it even more than I thought I would!

A few parts are a little slow-moving, but the ABBA music is fun and the 70s outfits are a riot.  The story switches between present day and the late 70s and explains how Donna Sheridan (played by Lily James and Meryl Streep) ended up in Greece originally.

Lots of cute moments include one with two of Sophie’s possible dads reenacting a scene from Titanic.  And platinum-wigged Cher as Sophie’s grandma is a hoot.  “But, Grandma,” says Sophie, “you weren’t invited!”  “Those are the best kind of parties, little girl!” Grandma retorts.

I’m still not sure why, but the last several scenes left me SO emotional, I was almost sobbing by the end.  Some weird repressed memories or just missing my youth, maybe!?  Two thumbs up for a fun summer musical.
