Next Saturday our great-granddaughter, Miss AslynGrace, is turning one year old and there is gonna be a big party. Even her great-aunts from Florida and Chicago are making the trip for this momentous occasion. So the Bradster and I headed out for Silverdale to get her a present. Afterwards we went to our favorite eatery, Silver City Brewing, and shared a seriously good Greek pizza. We ate the whole thing.
Both of us really like Robert De Niro so we went to see his latest movie, The Family. Even though it hasn't gotten stellar reviews we enjoyed the heck out of it. This is the story of a mob boss and his psychopathic family who are in the witness protection program. They are looked after by FBI agent Tommy Lee Jones who keeps moving them around because they always end up killing somebody and have to leave town.
The wife is played brilliantly by Michelle Pfeiffer who the Bradster thinks is looking mighty fine at age 55. And she is. Her supermarket scene was priceless.
This movie may not be everybody but if you want some entertainment on a blustery Monday afternoon and you don't mind laughing at a little violence, you might like it.
