Makin''s a different world

Tonight was the quarterly-or-whenever-we-can-schedule-it Girls' Night Out: me, sister-in-law, and two other friends. The plan was for J- to come next door to SIL's, I'd join them, and we'd go pick up N- and go to Leon's Full Service in downtown Decatur.

Started out OK, but when we go to N-'s street there was a police car and a sign: "No Through Traffic". We weren't going through, but in the debate of could we turn in at all we ended up going around to the other end of the street.....which was also barricaded. There we ran into N- who led us back around to the other end (you really weren't allowed to drive through) so we could all get in one car for the trip to Leon's.

Turns out the barricades are for a film crew shooting a Disney production called "The Odd Life of Timothy Green". The inside story from N- is that the house being used as a set today was supposed to be a vacation house or something, and it's supposed to be spring. Or maybe summer. Certainly not February. So, they have glued leaves on the lower branches of all the bare deciduous trees visible in their shots, and have laid down nice green turf on the lawn. Sure hope they finished filming, 'cause we may get an inch of snow tonight.

Leon's was great, Girl's Night Out was relaxing, and we all agreed we need to do it more often. It only took several weeks of emailing back and forth to get this one set up....
