Monday: Bob ran after work with his Monday running group. I did laundry, cleaned the 5er.
Tuesday: I got my hair cut and colored. Bob was off work. He did errands and outside chores.
Wednesday: Bob and I had a lunch date at Pappacito's Cantina, then I had my teeth X-rayed and cleaned. No cavities, and the crowns are doing well. In the early evening we watched our Netflix selection, Anna Karenina. After we watched the movie, Bob went to the Spurs game with a co-worker.
Anna Karenina movie review: Starring Kiera Knightly and Jude Law. One star out of five. We expected Anna Karenina to be a historical film about Russia. Instead, this was a stylized fantasy world. We were unclear at any given point who the characters were and what the story was about. Very strange movie. They kept cutting to a stage where the action would take place. When the movie went to the stage all I could think about was Shakespeare's quote; "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players, they have their exits and their entrances..." At one point while watching the movie, I remarked to Bob that it felt like the Baz Luhrmann/Moulin Rouge type of directing. All in all, the directing and production detracted from the story. Save your money and see something else, like Argo.
That brings us to today.
Bob had an executive meeting this morning at work. This evening, he watched half of the Oregon Ducks basketball game at Buffalo Wild Wings, shopped at Costco, came home watched more of the Ducks game, then went running with his Thursday night running group.
Peri and I met at 9:30 a.m. in Universal City, Texas, to do an 11K (6.8 mi.) Volksmarch.
The weather forecast last night had predicted an 81 degree high today. This morning I put on shorts and a T-shirt. When I looked outside at 8:00 a.m. the temperature was 50 degrees and the wind was blowing. I changed into jeans and brought along a sweater. (I was still cold at the beginning of our walk because there was a cold breeze blowing.)
The Volksmarch went along busy streets with no sidewalks, into an industrial area with an alleged "panoramic view" of Randolph Air Force Base. (All we could see of the Air Force Base was the control tower in the distance.)

website address on it. There's a one-room museum which has wall hangings of the badges, pins and special awards you can earn by Volksmarching. I took a few photos.

Next we took off through neighborhoods, went past a park and eventually wound our way back to the starting point.

We planned ahead and finished the walk 15 minutes before the RV ladies luncheon at Cheddar's Casual Cafe. I followed Peri on back roads to the restaurant. Ten ladies showed up today, most of them are members of an RV women's forum online. They camp together and only see each other occasionally. Lots of hugs were to be had at the beginning of this lunch. Four ladies were new to the lunch group: Sharon, Rae from Canada, Nettie from the San Antonio area, and Diana who splits her time between Austin, Texas and Sonora, California.
