Pokeberries a Self Portrait

Anne with Poke Berries a Self Portrait

Anne took this picture of herself on Sunday afternoon just after she had participated in the Red Thread Project. I think that she was a little giddy. I am hoping that posting this picture will help motivate her to do a guest post? She took a lot of great pictures of the event. Anne wants everyone to know, well at least me, that she bought the eight dollar a skein yarn today for fingerless gloves as opposed to the sixty dollar a skein yarn, that was featured in Vogue.

Rey called last night, he is coming to Saint Louis. He is coming with one of his co-workers from Knoxville. They plan on getting to Missouri on Thursday. His friend and co-worker is from near Saint Louis, thirty miles south of us in the city of Festus. I expect that we will see Rey sometime on the weekend. We look forward to his visit and OBTW, have you all heard that the Cardinals clinched their playoffs berth?

Oh boy, my new replacement desktop showed up today. I’ve got Windows doing its many little setup tasks, updating its software, while restoring my backed up files, all the while I am typing this post. Long live the new PC!

Away We Go, is the name of a movie that came out on DVD this week. Anne and I saw in the theater and enjoyed it. It is a poignant comedy. Here is a brief synopsis:

A couple who is expecting their first child travel around the U.S. in order to find a perfect place to start their family. Along the way, they have misadventures and find fresh connections with an assortment of relatives and old friends who just might help them discover “home” on their own terms for the first time.

It stars John Kaminski (The Office) and Maya Rudolph (SNL) as the young expectant couple. This road trip of a movies launches them from one dysfunctional family to the next. My favorite episode is when they visit a new age couple of friends. This vignette features Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Dark Knight). Here is some choice dialogue:

Maggie Gyllenhaal to her character’s husband: They bought us a stroller.

John Kaminski: What’s wrong with a stroller?

Maggie Gyllenhaal: I LOVE my babies. Why would I want to PUSH them away from me?
