I was hoping for a picture of a big explosion to start off this week’s Scattered Saturday post, because that is pretty much how Demolition Man (1993) begins. It is what we are watching now. I suggested it because it is a funny, fun, fast-paced flick. We had just watched The Bad Seed (1956), a perennial favorite of ours.
Our day was even more fun before we got to the movie-watching portion. We went to Little Falls for the grand opening of Meeples Mug House, the new board game cafe. We played gin and then Yahtzee, in between enjoying a delicious sandwich (me) and soup (Steven). I’ll write more about Meeples in another post (preview of coming attractions).
Before that, I went running and, um, not much else. I made a phone call to arrange donating an afghan to the H.A.L.O. Chinese Auction tomorrow at the VFW (another preview of coming attractions). While watching movies, I did a load of laundry and popped a bowl of popcorn (yum). It was Aversa’s Popcorn, just to add a little local flair to the post.
For local readers, the HALO Chinese auction is at the Herkimer VFW from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. HALO is the Helping Animals Live Organization, a no kill, not for profit, cat rescue group.
Meeples Mug House is located at 598 E. Main St., Little Falls, NY. They are open from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday.
And that brings me over 200 words, which regular readers will remember I consider respectable. I WILL write more about Meeples, possibly in an article in Mohawk Valley Living magazine. I will also write again about H.A.L.O. Right now, however, I have knitting to do, and I have to watch Sylvester Stallone kick Wesley Snipes’ butt in Demolition Man. Happy Saturday, everyone.
