The unexpected visit from an interstate friend.
A movie lunch and yes it was that freebie I won last time I went to the movies.
So I ventured back and watched the movie RED starring Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren to name only a few of the greats in the cast..
Brilliant and action packed I thoroughly recommend this movie as it had me adsorbed from woe to go and back again. In the genre of a James Bond movie gone vintage with aging stars who still know how to pack a punch and entertain to the hilt. If you get a chance, go and be enthralled by some mighty fine acting and a good racy script, so by all means go and see this griping movie.
You have to love Helen Mirren in a full length white evening gown wearing army style boots and shooting up a storm..Go Girl...Helen the aging and retired agent, Rocks and Shocks. LOL.
Also this week...
Unexpected and unwanted little visitors in the back office room made their presence felt and their visit was costly too.
White ants had just tunnelled in for a chomp on the wooden floor boards. Only minor damage but a costly little exercise to rid them and their entire huge family's nest some 50 metres away and living beneath someone Else's dead tree.
Oh well them there are the Breaks.
Thursday night was to be my piece de resistance.
I went with my sister to see the great LC or L Cohen or as you may know him Leonard Cohen.
Back in Aus after a magical tour and very special party like concert in a winery down south of Adelaide early in the year. I was determined not to miss him this time around.
How does one even try to describe the brilliance and perfection of this musical story teller, come poet. Every song performed in LC's unique and polished manner is a moment of sheer musical bliss. With a backup of maestros whose music abilities combined with LC's songs blended together like an old velvety smooth port blended to perfection, we were an appreciative audience hanging on every note and every word.
I was introduced to the various musical moods of LC from Gypsy serenades to waltz and then to country a bit of rock and stories to music told with voice and music. Magical in every way. Mr Cohen you had me hooked, well before Hallelujah!
