Rocket Man: Crash and Burn

Last November, Mr.K and I went to see Elton John's Yellow Brick Road tour in Pittsburgh.

What a show!

I've been an Elton fan for years, Mr. K, knew WHO he was, but not much more...

What a concert!  No opening act, just Sir Elton, on stage, entertaining us for 2 hours...
We loved it!
We loved it so much, we have plans to see his farewell tour when it comes to Pittsburgh in November.

Yes, we were in awe of his talent and ability to captivate us for two hours!

This weekend, Mr. K and I were left to entertain ourselves.

Mindy and Henry went swimming...

Andy and family (and Griffin) spent the weekend at a friend's farm...

What to do?

We were just deciding when my phone rang...

It was Locklan, face-timing from his mom's phone!

We made funny faces and silly hair styles until we lost signal...

Mr. K and I decided:

We would go out to dinner and then go and see a movie.

On the way, we stopped at Andy's where Locklan came running out the door...

I got my BIG HUG and tried to life him...

I swear, that kid grows a pound and an inch a day.

We got our hugs and then decided on dinner.

I am NOT a chain restaurant fan but we ended up at Red Lobster and then we headed for the Movies.

Mr. K chose Rocketman, the story of Elton John's rise to fame.

Now I will say that I'm not a movie critic or a movie fan.  I seriously dislike trying to stay awake in a dark theater for the hefty price of a ticket.

This time it was not a problem.  Less than half way through the movie, I asked Mr. K to leave.

It was disturbing.

If you didn't know better, you would think it was the story of a porn star...

My advice?

Save your money.

Stay home...

And to quote one of the few movie characters I enjoyed in my lifetime:

That's all I have to say about that.
