Welcome back to the blogger daily and to kick us off after the break it is Noelle Granger with her review for Guardians of the Galaxy II that she went to see in a plush new cinema…
For Mother’s Day, my daughter and son-in-law took Hubs and me to see Guardians II. They’d gotten tickets for a new movie theater in town, one where you reserve specific seats and can have beer, wine or cocktails delivered to your seat, along with food (cheeseburgers, French fires, pizza). I had a vodka lemonade, which was a mellow way to start the movie.
Did I mention the seats are really wide and well padded? Good thing the movie was exciting, or I would have dropped off.
I had watched Guardians I a few weeks ago at home, on pay per view. I enjoyed it, but after seeing this sequel, it was clear you need to see it in a theater.

For many reading this it was Memorial Day weekend and whilst we might not physically commemorate this day in the UK and Ireland we do relate to the sentiments it represents. Jenny Fitzkee posted this about her class and their Memorial Day activities.
There’s nothing like greeting a soldier in dress uniform. For young children, they are in awe. That presence naturally commands respect. I hosted our school’s Memorial Day Remembrance on Friday, with Army Sergeant First Class John as our guest speaker. As John looked at a sea of wide-eyed children, ready to talk about Memorial Day and the American flag, he decided to kneel. Smart man. He knew that delivering his message on his knees would be better understood by children. And, he was right!
These are the words the children wrote to him on their own. “Thank you for saving our country” and “We want to keep you forever”. They are sincere words. While they capture the moment of Memorial Day and thanking a soldier, I believe there is more behind their words, perhaps a bit of patriotism learned throughout the year.

It is a while since we featured Ani.. Sue Vincent’s beloved collaborator and this poem brought back happy memories of grooming Sam.. especially his feathery bits that he was very picky about..
Beauty and the Beast by ©Sue Vincent.
I looked the small dog in the eye
And she looked back at me…
A more determined look, I think,
You would go far to see.
I’d only mentioned it was hot
And that she must concur
That summer is no time for dogs
To wear their winter fur.
