Off To The Movies

Posted on

We ran into Yuma on Tuesday to get veggies for the Escapee rally we are going to on Thursday. Farmers Market in the historic Yuma was in full swing when we got there. The vegetable stand was crammed with people getting fresh fruit and veggies. (Our Grants Pass Farmers Market has many veggie stands but Yuma has only ONE. What’s up with that!) Anyway, we picked up what I needed and also bought another bag of Ruby Red grapefruit. It is so delicious and the man told us it is picked fresh that morning! It sure tastes like it. We did some other last-minute errands in town and met Carol and Jack at Cracker Barrel for lunch. Dale loves this place but I think next time we will experience a new place we have never been.

We tried to go see the new 3-D movie, Avatar, on Christmas, but it was sold out. Dale was determined to see the movie on Tuesday, so we arrived at 1:15 p.m. and the movie didn’t start until 2:30 p.m. He  wanted to be first in line. Well, he was the only one in line! Carol brought her crosswords and I brought my knitting. Jack has a Blackberry, so he was surfing the net.

All four of us were the first ones in the theatre and we had our pick of seats. Dale then had a kid take our photo with our glasses on! Yep, we thought one of us should look like Buddy Holly! The movie was excellent. I did duck once though! Just have to laugh at self!

On the way home we stopped at a field which earlier in the day we say the farm works kneeling and picking the crop and tying it into a bundle. All week we have been wondering what was in the field – cilantro, parsley, watercress or sprouts. It was cilantro. I am here to tell you that I look at our produce differently after seeing the labor it takes to get it to the grocery shelf.

    Cracker Barrel substitute-try Lute’s casino. (in oldtown) Once was a domino parlor. Lots of interesting trivia and old photos. Last year nothing on the menu was over $5. Also when going through the date area look for pick your own tangelos signs. I ended up eating a least one a day for the rest of our trip. Yummy!!
