Shelter And A Show

I took The Pony to see Super 8 today. It was better than I expected. If you like special effects, they were impressive. If you like kid actors, they were good. Especially that little gal who may or may not be a Fanning, and that big kid who was the movie moviemaker. I don't know their names because imdb.com takes too long to load on my Molasses in January, Inc. internet speed.

Last night, we had some severe storms in our area. You know, funnel clouds passing over the interstate scattering two billboards as reported by a law enforcement official kind of storms. At 11:30 p.m. we were holed up in Gunrunner H's concrete room in the basement. He sat on the only chair like it was his throne. I stood. The #1 son dashed out into the basement proper and grabbed a tiny rolly chair at his old desktop. The Pony sighed and knelt and laid his head on a metal footrest on a shoeshine chair which is not sittable because of all the junk on it. You'd think His Royal H-ness would have given me the chair, especially after I hinted at it several times, then pointedly asked him for it. Nope.

Do you think it has anything to do with him only getting a card and a Backyard Chicken magazine for Father's Day?

I'm glad to hear that Super 8 was a good show, I want to see it with my kids. I'm glad you were safe even if you had to stand.

Josh,
Yes, we have a very safe place to ride out the tornadoes. Underground in a concrete room with a steel door is about as safe as a hillbilly can get.

I don't know how old your kids are, but there is a kind of a monster in Super 8. And a bit of bad language. My boy is 13, so it didn't bother him.

I think His Royal H-ness is upset because he didn't get a Giant Metal Chicken. Of course, a Giant Metal Chicken is really a 15 year anniversary gift, but,hey, go for the glory of being a most loving wife anyway you can! See the Big Metal Chicken on TheBloggess. I guarantee you will be lookng for one soon.....

knancy,
Chicken Lover H would LOVE that giant metal chicken. I hope he never sees it. Because we would have to put one in the front yard. He would not be deterred because it can cut. That would only be a bonus, because there's nothing he likes better than chickens and knives. Unless maybe it's guns and soup without the liquid part.
