Anne and I find ourselves unusually over scheduled this weekend. It’s not like we have lots of parties to attend, we don’t. It is because STL has a lot going on this weekend. Last weekend there was nothing going on. Only the Cards managed to fill our Sunday dance card. Who still manage to be in first place! Last night, we had not one, but two things to do. We opted for the balloon glow in Forest Park, but we could have gone to see Shakespeare in the Streets instead. We’ll try to see Shakespeare tonight, even though this now conflicts with Dancing in the Streets. With all of these closed streets, it is a good thing that we’ll be on bicycles today. Plus there are at least two quilting events and the balloon festival continues on. There are too many things to do!
Wehrenberg is a local movie theater chain. It is also the oldest family owned theater chain in the US. My most memorable experience with them was in 1980. I was working nights. Anne was working days. So, me and some of my co-workers went to the first matinée showing of The Empire Strikes Back. Yesterday, at work a bunch of people were consumed with creating a document. The book captain was speaking with another engineer, who said, “All right, I’ll give it a try.” She answered in true Yoda fashion, “No. Try not. Do… or do not. There is no try.” Puzzled, he asked her what was she talking about. It turns out that he had never seen Empire, which dumbfounded everyone else.
