It's a Quiet Saturday -- Plus Spleen Pain 
ouch, bandaid
Today was a VERY quiet Saturday. We stayed up late again last night. Watching Star Trek and then we got a movie. We saw the 2016 film "Blood Father," with Mel Gibson. It was quite a good action/adventure movie about a young woman who gets mixed up with criminals through her boyfriend and has to seek help from her father. I highly recommend it if you're into action/adventure movies. This will really fit the bill.

It was chilly (and even cold) today. We wore socks and had our blankets on a lot!

We also saw the 2016 film "The Good Neighbor." This is really good -- and not what you expect. Again, I highly recommend it.

We watched a lot of TV again today. It's always a saving grace when you're too sick to do anything much... There was a lot of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." on today. (smile)

I talked to both sister Sue and June today.

June has been dizzy quite a bit lately and taking a lot of falls, but she finally got in to see her doctor. They did a lot of tests, and she has a bad sinus infection that's causing some of the trouble. She's bruised all over and they also took x-rays to see if she has any broken or cracked bones, poor thing! I'm anxious to hear more when she gets results back. The good news is that PooPurr is doing GREAT! Eating like crazy, June said.

Sue didn't do well at cribbage Thursday night, but had a good time. She really likes the new member, even though he lives quite a long way out and she had to give him a ride.

Annoyed by this spleen pain -- BUT at least now I know it's not in my head! (It really IS spleen pain, after all...) Anyway, pushing on, as always! (grin)

Slept a lot today (again). I guess that's a good thing...

I made homemade popcorn tonight for while we watched Svengoolie (which Marilyn and I love seeing). Tonight they aired "Island of Terror," a 1966 British horror film with Peter Cushing. It was so terrible it was delightful. Hahaha. We made tons of jokes during it and totally enjoyed it. (Angel texted Marilyn that he was watching...)

Oh! And I've been wondering WHERE the ants have gone. So I googled to see if they hibernate or not. Guess what? They DO! I read: "Although ants can be seen in various places from spring to autumn, they go into hibernation in the winter. In addition, from spring to autumn, many ants are seen to come from, and go into, the entrances of their nests, but these entrances are closed in winter and no ants are seen to come from there."

Good riddance, ants! So the war waits until spring. (Which COULD mean a warm day in February or March, actually!!! Hahaha.)

Still loving SimCity BuildIt. I've been doing the Vu Tower things, which is a new twist. Marilyn continues participating in challenges against other mayors...

Good night!

Sorry that a lot of folks seem to be having health issues right now!
Hopefully it will all get better!
I'm sure resting will help some too!

Always a big Svengoolie fan! I loved the program airing the complete The Cage from Star Trek a few weeks ago. Seeing some of the other alien species in the Keepers' cages and other scenes that had been cut for The Menagerie was very cool. :)
