11:00 PM Friday night...
We are parked across from our daughter's home in San Diego and just spending an hour or so reading before turning in for the night.
Our mission of having new Koni shocks installed was accomplished without hassle. Our opinion of the results is still unresolved. It seems to me that perhaps the ride on smoother highway surfaces is a bit nicer, but the rough surfaces of some of the Interstate highways cannot be "made better." Bad road is bad road. We are a bit disappointed.
Although we were welcomed by our grandsons when we arrived, they and their parents had other plans for the evening. They were going to an "end of the world" party being hosted by one of the boys' friend's parents.
We decided to go to a movie. We saw the Hobbit and enjoyed it very much. Craig wanted to see it in 3D, but I have gotten dizzy when I go to 3D's and wanted to see it in a regular 2D format. I was glad we did because the action was very intense and I'm pretty sure I would not have done well with the 3D format.
Peter Jackson did a wonderful job with the material from the book. It was visually rich in detail. There was a lot of violence, but no guns! I think the PG13 is just about right. Kids younger than that might be overwhelmed and have nightmares because the monsters were so real and never completely vanquished.
The next few days will be family time. We will eat, drink, and play games. Well, I'll try not to overdo the first two.
Hope you all enjoy this time as well, wherever you are.
Peace on Earth may be too much to expect, but not too much to wish for.
