Then today, we went to see Cowboys and Aliens. Yeeha! It's done with a lot of affection for the Westerns of the 70s, and lots of really cool evil aliens! If you are familiar with Sci Fi, and with Westerns, there won't be many surprises, but there's lots of wonderful action and special effects. (Harrison Ford with an Apache spear held like a jouster's lance, skewering an alien from horseback.) The kid manages to save himself and even the dog makes it out alive. It's great fun!
Tomorrow, I begin the countdown to the knitter's tea. We will have raspberry bars, lemon cupcakes, salmon with dill on pumpernickle, and for fruit - how about big slices of cold watermelon? If you're coming, let me know soon. It takes me longer to set the table with this broken wing.
