Wee One and I caught the matinee of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who! (2008) Sunday. We made the 20 minute trip South to the tiny, very rural, movie theater for the 2:00 pm showtime…..the only showtime.
I should not complain because one of the best things about this tiny theater is their prices. Here is what the matinee cost us yesterday:
2 matinee tickets: $6
large popcorn: $5
Large diet Dr. Pepper: $2
1 box of Whoppers Candy: $2
If we would have driven 45 minutes to Bartlesville and fought the crowds at the Mall, my wallet would be about $25-$30 lighter….not mentioning in the price of gas. The theater we go to isnt fancy or as new as the higher priced ones, but the movie looks and sounds the same as in any other theater I have been in.
‘Horton Hears A Who’ has always been my favorite Dr. Seuss story. Wee One and I enjoyed the movie very much. It was fast paced, cute, and kept him interested throught out the entire movie. Definitely a good movie for the little kids.
We had good weekend weather. Green grass is growing up fast. This is an old photo, it isnt quite that green yet.
I’ve decided not to do a garden this year…I think I’ll stick to my potted veggie plants…..maybe plant more flowers and focus on some landscaping instead of a garden that probably wont survive.
I was able to spend a much needed hour in the saddle. Scooter, however, needs some work. It did not help that I rode him in an old o-ring snaffle bridle minus a chin strap. Nor did I take the time to lunge him for 15 – 20 minutes. Time was of the essence in our getaway from home. I knew Scooter should have been ridden in the 3 piece low port with a roller but I decided against going back inside after that bridle.
When we reached our soft sandy road, I let Scooter lope a good long way. Once he worked off some energy Scooter paid more attention to me and not everything else. We could hear Freddie braying a few times, Scooter did not answer and pointedly ignored Freddie’s calls from the panel pen where Freddie was put into before our departure.
I have had an extra kid since Thursday, Bubba’s best bud Cho who we love having around…this is the only friend of Bubba’s that I can tolerate for a length of time. Cho is a wonderful and well behaved teenager but he was a wonderful and well behaved small kid was well.
Hubs filled my car up for me yesterday. I did not ask him what the cost was, our gas prices are up to $2.99. Crude Oil is over $110 a barrel the last time I checked. That is very good for my family, Crude Oil is how we survive…..do I feel bad about the high gas prices? yeah, a little bit. But, not like the rest of the Country.
What is the price of gas in your area?
