new Netflix movie to watch last night, I found a DVD in the cabinet of The Big Trees, starring Kirk Douglas. Wasn’t a particularly great flick but was funny in an old fashioned movie kinda way. And to think that they had tree hugging as an issue way back yonder. SU liked the action scene when Fallon (Douglas) jumped on the logs of a moving train to rescue the fair maiden. Very realistic. 🙂
Another cold and wet day on the coast. Yuk. I’m tired of it, ready for summer. Bring me the heat – beats this hands down.
Been pondering relationships, failed and not. I mentioned to someone the other night about the effectiveness of a date night and the response was that they had a bunch of date nights but it didn’t work for them. Was talking to SU about that and came to the conclusion that I haven’t defined date night well enough. Date night is a night a week set aside to honor your spouse. Nothing more or less. It isn’t about candlelight dinners, sex, gifts or anything else that is tangible. Perhaps focus is the word that describes it best. Focus on your mate, nothing else. Just for that brief period of time, let the world go, let you finances go, let your frustrations go, just focus on and honor you mate. In my case, make her feel like a princess. In her case, make me feel like a king. So there, date night defined.
Hey, it’s worked to keep this polar opposite couple united, blessed and happy through thick and thin. For 25 years. Take that.
