Later in the day, Jim and I went to the movies. Tuesday is our favorite day to see a movie as it is "$1 popcorn day". It used to be free popcorn, but I guess the economy is catching up with everything. We saw the movie Defiant which I highly recommend. It is the true story of three Jewish brothers in Belarus during WWII, who saved over 1200 Jews from the Germans. I can't say it was an easy film to watch, but it was sure an eye opener.
Wednesday found us preparing for a visit from our friend/pseudo daughter, Heather, who was bringing her new beau to meet us. She is really close to three families from our church and circle of friends so we decided to have a dinner party at our house. Linda and I shared the food preparation.
As you can see, we had a really fun evening. We always manage to have lots of laughs when we get together.
Since the week was pretty much a wash, we decided to see another movie on Friday. Movies are in the theaters for such a short time these days, you need to strike while the iron is hot, so to speak. We really wanted to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button before it leaves the theaters, so off we went on Friday. Again, we really enjoyed the movie and would recommend it. We both cried at the end.
