So today, I put the finish coat on 10 of my chef knives that are going in the mail tomorrow. Brought home a new puppy for the kids to meet, not ready to bring home for good yet, Jan 6 is bring home day, but we were able to bring it home for a few hours.
Also bottled 5 gallons of apple, and 5 gallons of Valpolicella.

Bought tickets for Star Wars. I'm off next week, so the Boatboy family is headed to the movies on Tuesday.

I am hoping to go this Thursday evening with a few guys from work!
I don't want any spoiler info which is one of the reasons for going Thursday.
It's obvious what the real reason is though...

I bought tickets a month ago to see Star Wars on Friday night, even then it was almost sold out.

I had been thinking it'd be weeks before I went to see it. On a whim, I looked at tickets and sho' 'nuff, they were readily available (during the day - not sure what the evening shows will be like). Nice thing is, we have reserved seats, so no hunting around for a decent spot. And that theater has a $6 matinee special on Tuesdays that I didn't even know about. Seeing a movie for under ten bucks around here at any time of day is practically unheard of.

I actually just looked when I booked and it was 10/21. I was hoping for iMax, but was sold out as was the preferred/reserve seating. So we are GA on Friday night, however still looking forward to it. But, the theatre is only 2 years old so not a bad seat and they serve alcohol, so a glass of wine or 2 will certainly happen. The wife is less than excited to go but the wine should help her lack of enthusiasm.

I just got back from visiting a friend from our men's group who is starting the long recovery from a really nasty disease, which I had never heard of until last week (Guillan-Barre syndrome). When I was writing my name in the visitors log, I noticed a name and some familiar hand writing before my entry.

I'll just say his name is Brian, and I can't remember the last time I saw him, after college I'm sure and unless he was at our 10th year high school reunion, I can't really remember when. He moved back up into my general area to retire with his wife (life is good) and I haven't been in touch (four kids will do that).

The room number was across the hall from where I was visiting so I glanced in the room but the curtain was closed. So I went ahead with my visit and when I left 45 minutes or so later I got on the elevator with this family. Wasn't real sure yet, but when he spoke to his wife I did recognize the voice.

Now they didn't recognize me, because I am now sporting a full beard and about 50 more pounds (he was supporting more bulk too). So when we got outside, I walked up and said I think I remember you from....then it hit him who I was. We had a real nice "mini" reunion outside of the facility, but they had to go visit his mom and I had to get home to pick up my daughter, but he did give me his card and I've sent my info and kids picture from Thanksgiving with an invite to come sample some of my new hobby.

Small world sometimes. I just knew I was being pulled to go visit my buddy from church for some reason!
