Omg, Tony and I had so much fun, sitting around the kitchen island, with Fourth catching up with each others latest news. And after we had caught up with each others news we talked and laughed about everything under the sun, including some of our old favorite movies.
At one point Fourth said, "One of my all time favorite movies is? Dang it. I can't remember the name of the movie. It starred Jeff Goldblum and—"
"The Big Chill!" I said. "It is one of my favorites, too. The music was so awesome and I loved the guy who drove the Porsche and he was a drug dealer, but I can't remember his name." And Fourth also couldn't remember the actor's name. Then we started talking about something else, but now I can't remember that.
Then we decided to move our happy hour outside and sit out on the front porch and I was thrilled, because it would be the first time for us to have company in the evening and show-off our new string of solar lights that constantly changes colors (from red to green to yellow to blue and orange) or soft white.
As I was turning on the lights to show Fourth our new solar lights, I first set it to the soft white glow position, but it was so boring, because there wasn't that many lights on the string, so I then switched it to the changing colors mode and joined them at the table.
As we watched each individual light change a different color from the other lights, we talked about that old movie The Alamo, starring John Wayne and Richard Widmark. We all loved that great movie and Fourth had us laughing about some hilarious, behind the scenes things that happened on and off the set, that he and his family had witnessed when it was filmed in his hometown—Brackettville.
I could tell you some of Fourth's hilarious Alamo stories about John Wayne and the cast, but those are Fourth's great stories, which I hope one day soon he will write about and share for the world to enjoy.
Bottom Line: We had so much fun spending the evening with Fourth and we were sad when it was time for him to leave. And my back is still aching from laughing so much at his awesome stories.
Now I must admit that earlier this evening, after I put a giant log on the fire, The Cabin was so cozy and warm I almost decided to not write a post for tonight, because I wanted to just sit around and enjoy the comforts of home. Here's a picture of my blazing fire.
