Leon Creek Walk and a Movie - Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016

It had been rather chilly in San Antonio and night-time temperatures were in the upper 30s so we dressed rather warmly for our walk today. I had on a sweatshirt and heavy winter coat along with a hat. When we started walking around 11 am, the temperature was probably about 58-60. The thing is, this trail may have shade in the early morning when shadows are long, but midday is a different ballgame. The sun was out, there was minimal shade for 6.2 miles. We had on dark, heavy clothes.

About 1/3 of the way, we were feeling the heat. By the time we made it half way, we had our coats off and were carrying them. On the way back, we were grousing about how much we were sweating. We vowed never to walk this at midday again if it was sunny out.

After the walk, we decided to see the movie "Sisters" with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. First we had lunch at Panera Bread which was yummy.

I should have known better than to see this movie. Don't get me wrong, I love a good comedy. But this wasn't one of them. For one, I think Amy and Tina are way over-rated as comediennes. Second, this movie was just plain stupid with more cursing and expletives than I have ever heard in one place in all my life. I didn't even know what some of the swear words were! Awful movie. As soon as it was over, I put it out of my mind. For me, this movie was pure torture.

Walking and lunch were good, even if it was warmer than expected outside. I felt i wasted $7.50 on a terrible movie. Some days are like that. C'est la vie.

  1. Thanks for the warning about the movie. Wayne and I were talking about catching a matinee this week and hadn't made a decision. Think we might go to the Big Short. Anyway...I love that you and Bob continue to be so active. Wayne and I try to work in lots of walking and gym time but often feel that others in our age group think it's a waste of time and effort. (Although to be clear, I think we are older than you...didn't want you to think I was lumping you into my age group)

    As I get closer to Medicare age, I can't help but think if everyone was committed to stay active that the overall costs of healthcare would come down a bit.
