Two in two days

We so rarely go out to the movies anymore. They are so expensive (even with our senior discounts) and we have a great home theater system, so often we just wait for the DVD or Netflix. And we can make our own refreshments, pause for restroom breaks, talk, and replay scenes. But we went out Thursday with our friend Rich to see Star Trek: Beyond in IMAX 3D. It was really good, I thought--incredible action and CGI, but also great character development and interplay. One of the better reboots.

Today we saw the Absolutely Fabulous movie in a regular theater, again with Rich. Steve (rootbeer1) and I have always been big fans of the television series, and the film did not disappoint. Virtually every character was there, with the original actors, plus a huge number of cameos from show business and the fashion world. The spirit of the original was very strongly in force, and there were so many LOL moments. Four thumbs up for both movies.

Tonight, an evening pool party to celebrate our friend Mike's 50th birthday. it's 99 degrees outside right now, and strangely humid. Also, a haboob (desert sandstorm) came through last night, and the sky is still kind of hazy. The pool will feel good, and many friends will be there.
