Sunday night at the beach


We’ve had a fabulous meal, courtesy of my fabulous sister–juicy filet mignons from Omaha Steaks, so tender they melted in your mouth, garlic toast, spinach salad and baked potatoes. I was too stuffed for dessert, but the fellows enjoyed apple pie a la mode.

Now we are sharing one of our favorite films (and one of Richard’s, too) with my sis and BIL, the delightful Pixar production Up on our PS3 that Benny brought from home.

The house that is about to be taken on a journey via balloons for the adventure of a lifetime in UP.

 Sis took a break to take Miss Hannah Dog for her walkies, so Benny watched some 50s monster movie with a stop-motion creature from Venus wreaking havoc in Italy. BIL suggested the film was “unrealistic.” Gee, ya think?? Now back to the fun of Up.  I like to imagine RA guffawing at some of the most amusing moments . . .

I hope you all have had a pleasant weekend and a good Monday to come. Stay safe and well, everyone.

  1. I just love this shot of our favorite serious, scowling, smirking, “mean guy faced” person absolutely losing it to something hilarous. We need to see this more often. It’s good for the soul.

  2. Didn’t Richard say in an interview somewhere that he loved Up? Or am I getting that confused with his liking for Pixar movies?
    He’s just delightful when he laughs so openly and joyously. Yes, Lynneloubielat, it’s very good for the soul. Hopefully there will be plenty of outtakes on the Hobbit DVD extras where we get to see him laughing like this.

    • He did say that “Up” was one of his favourite movies. I remember because it’s one of mine, too.

      Laughter is good for the body as well as the soul, and it looks as though Richard has had plenty of occasion to laugh while filming “The Hobbit.” I, too, look forward to the DVD extras.

      Angie, it sounds like you had a wonderful time — a great dinner and a charming movie in the best of company. Very happy for you!

  3. Richard has said several times that he is “a cheerful fellow” so the laughter isn’t surprising. He does smile often during interviews when he’s being himself. He just tends to take the angst-filled rolls so we don’t get to see it that often. That’s why I adore Harry.

    • Yes, I remember he did say in an interview he’s a “happy chappy” or something along those lines! Would be nice if he could try his hand at comedy in the future.

  4. That pic of Mr. A has been gracing my desktop for the past couple days. Love to see him laugh! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing your adventures on vacation, Angie. It looks like it’s been a bit of an idyll. That’s always good for the soul. 🙂
