It is sunny outside, but these two guys, with their sunny smiles, always warm my heart.
It's PlusOne and Mr Karate. Yesterday Mom had a very nice Valentine's Day with Mr Karate. They had a nice lunch (bacon-lettucte-tomato and avocado sandwiches with spicy mayo on toasted bread), and then did a little "retail therapy." (Mr Karate bought a waterproof jacket for bicycling, Mom picked up a couple of little things for these two guys, both of whom have birthdays coming up).
Then they went to see Slumdog Millionaire. What did Mom think about the movie? To answer that, Mom wants you to read this first sentence of Ty Burr's review of the movie from last November: I'll keep this simple: Cancel whatever you're doing tonight and go see "Slumdog Millionaire" instead.
Later, Mom went to the store and bought the soundtrack to Slumdog Millionaire, which she has been listening to all morning while sewing the binding on the Alphabet Sampler Quilt.
