We topped off dinner with red mango yogurt, and then went to see "Gnomeo and Juliet", the little G rated animation which I found a good watch though it was down to earth and not particularly amusing. The animation had a simplicity I liked, though the 3-D effects were of the "added in" variety. I was pleased to see it was done in Toronto.
Today my wife, my brother and I drove down to the BBQ place Red, Hot and Blue at 75 and Walnut Hill in Dallas to have a noontime meal with my Uncle Ivan, Aunt Virginia, my cousin Morgan and his 15 year old son, Sam. Sam is in town to compete in the fencing Junior Olympics. I was glad to get a chance to visit with these relatives, whom we do not see often enough.
I started my day watching the birds in our back yard, a rather grackle and gull-ish pursuit. During the day, my wife and I took a walk around the Glendover Park pond, where the mallards were out in force. I also walked at Bethany Lakes Pond, where red slider turtles sunned themselves.
I am working on an ambient song with the working title "Potato", but I'll probably rename it something involving terms like "dawn" and "mountain king" and "thrall". Actually, I like one-word titles like "Yukon"--gold potatoes, that is.
We watched the Percy Jackson movie on HBO family and enjoyed it. I am in the early but interesting going of a Swedish police procedural. I'm ready for a good night's sleep.
