MY OCTOBER 2015 RESUME IN PICTURES   Leave a comment

It seems like life goes smoothly and then something comes along that makes you think about various things of which one, at my age, is mortality. I do know that at the age of 80 I am still standing and that is what counts so when I wake up in the morning I look forward to another good day not worrying what it will bring.

There are many things I look forward to such as eating out and trying new places. This past month I hit a few familiar good places such as the Quarterdeck, one of my favorite restaurants (see #14–their Jambalaya), along with the IHOP (#13)  and The Cheesecake Factory (#12) Depending what movie house we go to on Friday we will either have a bite at Sweet Tomatoes (#16) or Subway (#11). In addition whenever I can get a groupon for a new restaurant I grab it and in October got to go to Siam Cuisine (#15), Filling Station (#19), Salsa Fiesta (#10) and Flash Fire Pizza (#9) which I have or will post reviews. Also revisited the Sea Club (#s 17 & 18) as Allen’s friend Neil came in for a week from Germany and it is a nice ‘tourist spot’ right across from the beach.

Somewhere I have in the back of my head that if I don’t go to the movies on Friday the world would come to an end so with that thought I saw 4 movies on Fridays and 2 on Tuesday of which I really liked The Martian (#4) , would see Freeheld (#3) again and enjoyed Bridge of Spies (#1) while the other 3 weren’t worth the time except for Sandra Bullock’s (#2) performance in Our Brand is Cruising.

The theatre 2015-2106 season officially started with an excellent musical called “Big Fish” based on the movie and book version. Next comes “Newsies” a show I have seen and really liked before.

Among the good news was the makeover of our library (#21) and the availability of computer lessons to the residents here at Gateway by a computer whiz Christopher–more about that in another post–and I might look in as he is working with Microsoft 10.

After a decade plus of being the mailman here Mark (#20) died. He was more of a friend to all of us than a mailman.

And, of course, last but not least, I had carotid artery surgery done to clean the plaque on October 19—one of the ceiling panels in the pre-op room–(#s 22 &23) giving me a beautiful scar for Halloween!!

Now I look forward to November and all the month will present to me–the good and/or the bad.
