The Iron Lady

Thursday: Went cycling (for a change) this morning. Cool, had to wear our jackets. After lunch we headed out to Superstition Springs, to the Harkins 25, to see the Meryl Streep movie, “The Iron Lady”. Best actress shoe-in (according to the critics). After the movie we went for a ride around Mesa, checking out the big trailer parks. We ended up at the Superstition Springs Mall, at Macy’s. Sue bought some golfing shirts, I bought a pair of golfing pants. All ready for tomorrow, when Dave and MaryLou are coming back here for a final round of golf at Mountain Brook. We took a quick walk through the (empty) mall and then headed home, watching as the sun set behind the clouds and did its best to tint Superstition Mountain in pink. Once home, Sue made (another) great supper — spicy shrimp with pasta and a salad. After supper we called Angie and discussed options for celebrating my mom’s 80th birthday in June. Settled nothing. Sue sat and played iPad Scrabble while I watched the last period of Jets hockey on TV. Then we watched the first part of a Clinton documentary on PBS online and another of my Oscar downloads, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore (Best Animated Short Film). We ended the evening by watching the 2 hour documentary “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” about the West Memphis 3. Went to bed just before midnight.
