|movie from the comforts of a car!|
It was a pretty good weekend. On Friday, I did a lot of trimming shrubs and yard work. My daughter and I had plans to go see the new movie, “The Martian.” When I realized it was on a drive-in theater in Beaufort, we decided for an evening road trip. I haven’t been to a drive-in since high school and she’d never been one. It was kind of neat even though they no longer have speakers at each car (now they tell you which station to listen in on your radio). The photo was taken from the front seat of the car, but you can’t really tell it was from the car (I was hoping to get the steering wheel in the scene but it was too dark). The movie was pretty good and my daughter thought she preferred the drive-in to regular movies (it was better staying inside the car than to go outside due to the number of bugs outside in the wet ground).
I was supposed to be on the committee boat on Saturday for sailing, but there was rain and some lightning and no wind, so we cancelled. I did go out on the water with some folks on Sunday afternoon. Instead of racing, we practiced a number of procedures and generally enjoyed being on the water for a few hours.

|T. R. presents me with the door prize|
Sunday evening, I attended “An Evening with TR” sponsored by the Friends of the Savanah Wildlife Refugees. There are seven refugees in our area and this was a fundraiser. Joe Wiegand played T.R. and put on a wonderful show. If he is in your area, I would recommend you seeing him! In addition to top notch entertainment, I made out nicely as my $20 entry to the lecture resulted in winning one of the door prizes, a $40 book: The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
