Why I Like to Stick Around Here During Summer-- Part 3: This Past Weekend

July is the prime time for local activities.  As I mentioned Saturday, two towns within ten miles of us had their big festivals this past weekend.

With the extreme heat, I also made use of the local theater and caught some movies each day.  Nice and air conditioned, you know and way too hot to do anything much outside.

MOVIES:  Wednesday "Grown Ups 2," Thursday "The Lone Ranger" and Friday "Pacific Rim."  The first two were panned by critics, but I sure enjoyed them as did the others in the theater.  Lots of outloud laughter.  Really liked "The Lone Ranger."  If you liked Indiana Jones or Pirates of the Caribbean, this is the movie for you.  As for "Pacific Ring," move over Godzilla, there is a new city wrecker in town.

THURSDAY

Antioch's Taste of Summer.  Fairly hot.  Saw the band B.B.I. on stage playing R&B and Funk.  Finally got too hot and headed up the hill to The Lodge to cool off.  Then went to a new place called Wings, Etc.by the Piggly Wiggly and had some of their boneless chicken special.  Some of the best sauce ever.  We'll be back.
