Ok, so I may be giving my age away here, but I did something last night that I haven’t done in 25 years, maybe more! Truth is I haven’t done this in so long that I can’t exactly remember the last time I did it, but boy it sure did bring back some fun memories. No, it wasn’t illegal! No, it wasn’t anything childish.
I went to the Drive-In Movies!
With my husband & son. It was SO.MUCH.FUN! I’ve been planning this, and looking forward to it, all week, and I’m so glad the weather was nice! My son, who is 24, has never been to a drive-in movie theater so I know it’s been at least that long. Actually, I have never been to a drive-in since moving to PA and that’s been over 30 years ago!
Gone are the days of the old metal speakers that you hung on the car window, although the poles were still there. (Does anyone else remember them?) Now, the movies are in HD and you tune your radio to a specific frequency to hear the audio.
We saw Cars 3. The movie was a double-feature with Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Lies but we didn’t stay for that movie.
Cars 3 was FABULOUS! I really love the Cars movies. I think it’s because of the friendship between all the characters. You’ve got so many different personalities but everyone works together and everyone encourages one another to use their gifts and talents, and to unite together for the greater good. No one is too old or too rusty to be useful. I think it is a beautiful picture of how life could be if we all just valued one another, rather than trying to compete with one another.
It was a wonderful, heart-warming story and the story has been with me all evening and all day today. I love a good sappy movie that stays with you long after you’ve watched it.
The Cars community actually reminds me of my online Community, the Pals. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators under Mary Fish, my upline, from all over the country. Some are old, some are young, some are new to stamping and some have been around a while. Some are business builders, many others are hobby-ists. But we all share a common love of stamping and it is the most positive, uplifting, community and it’s a place that I love to hang out in. If you would love to belong to a group like that, than please email me or just join now.
I hope that you have something fun planned for your weekend. Maybe you can take your Dad, your hubby and your kids to see Cars 3 for Father’s Day!
But whatever you do, I hope you manage to carve out some time to get in your Craft Room and do something creative for yourself.
