Our local community hosts these Outdoor Movie Nights at various venues/parks around the area. Last night we watched Raiders of the Lost Ark at Hope Lodge. It was a perfect night. Popcorn was tasty, movie was a classic and the temperature was in the low 70’s. The stars were shining over head too.
Jenny enjoyed it too. She’s been wanting to do this for some time now but being a Super Hero is very time-consuming and exhausting. It was a nice break for her. So far, the Summer of Barry has been excellent!
Everyone thinks my life is wildly exciting. Yes I’m a former Storm-trooper from the future, and yes I’m a clone with mad skills. My life is not all glamour and parties though. Like yesterday, yesterday I ran errands.
So my day started with a little work. These are star charts. TJ and Tourist Dave thought they were Jackson Pollack paintings. Um…no. I tried to explain Space to them but they broke out in song and dance. I gave up.
I got in the car. The Roomie drove and we went to Target.
I targeted in on the soda we were picking up because of the awesome price.
I pointed out that perhaps it was time to fill up on petrol. I’m a former soldier we do what needs to get done.
Then back home and I read a book. So ended my ordinary day….Clone Style!
So we love a good episode on Shark Week. And thanks to Snap Chat we get to be sharks…Well except for Chet…he’s a Land Shark all of the time.
TJ and Tourist Dave rocking the Shark!
Discovery’s Shark Week is like Chet’s Christmas Morning!
We decided to do the Christmas in July theme this summer.
First we went to Byers Choice in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
It was so much fun. They served cookies and peppermint ice cream.
They had all kinds of displays, not just Christmas, although that was the theme.
Barry got to see some other former Presidents. He wonders what he will look like as a doll (lol).
On Sunday, we decided to continue the adventure of Christmas in July. We went to the National Christmas Center in Paradise, Pennsylvania (near Lancaster).
So much fun. The exhibits took me way back in time.
There were exhibits celebrating Christmas in many different Countries.
Also, Christmas Trees abound here.
I got to do some “shopping” at Woolworth’s. It was a really fun time. Christmas In July was something new for us and it was bunches of fun!
Um…Me thinks it’s going to rain….
…and then it did…a lot…like 2″.
I like this historic house a lot. It was built-in 1728 by the Keith Family.
The property was a huge asset during the Revolutionary War for both Washington’s and Howe’s Forces. The Patriots used this property during the local battles. When the British took over the area with their victories against the Americans after the Battle of Brandywine. They set up encampment here using the farms resources.
It was a hot and steamy afternoon but well worth the trip. Stop by if you are ever in the Horsham area!
The Roomie heard about the Air Victory Museum last summer but this is the first chance we’ve had to see it.
The Summer of Barry continues with this museum. They had a piece of the 911 site and an exhibit to the tragedy of 911. It is a part of American History now. It brought up sorrow but it was an important exhibit.
There were many planes. Model Planes and some helicopters.
Buddy is a history lover from way, way back. There were exhibits for Amelia Earhart and the Hindenberg Disaster.
Barry was thinking how cool it would be to fly one of these jets. Fast and Furious….mach 3 style!
When we left we headed over to Mt. Holly, NJ for some lunch. Jimmy and Eddie found the food amazing and the beer even more amazing, lol!
A Nor’Easter came to Our Town yesterday. Her name was Stella and she was messy and heavy. She made snow not fun 😦
Buddy and the Roomie were ecstatic that our new Neighbor snow blew our front walkway. Thumbs up from the big guy!
Shelly and Lenny were a little bummed that the snow was so wet and heavy that sledding was a bummer. They tried to build a snowman but it was like rolling the snow through quick-drying cement :(**
Stella could have been worse. We ended up with about 4″ with drifted snow which turned to ice when as the day got colder. This morning we woke up to 19 degrees with real-feel temps of 9 degrees. This with Spring just days away. Weird, right?
Yesterday it was 63 degrees in Our Town. Today…it’s snowing.
Buddy had the Roomie stop the car so he could get a selfie with the geese. There were hundreds of them. They are the black dots in the background.
They say there is a Nor’Easter coming our way on Tuesday. Yesterday I wanted to put my shorts on and boom I’ve got to find my winter coat.
To occupy our time we played some Scrabble and SnapChat. Lame I know but at least it’s Friday 🙂
