Eric’s dad decided to take him for the weekend. I think it is the first such weekend in a year! Well, that’s another story. But I’m really grateful to have a weekend with Princess Gail free from the day to day autism stuff.
We got a bit dressed up and had a nice dinner at The Real Seafood, outdoors at the Maumee River overlooking downtown Toledo. She had her favorite, salmon, and I had some awesome fried shrimp!
Don’t I look happy?
Then we went to see the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight. I was skeptical of all the hype, especially what I perceived to be pity votes for Heath Ledger’s performance. But I was SO convinced! The movie was an edge-of-your-seat spectacle, totally jam packed with action! And Heath Ledger’s Joker was an inspired tour de force. He deserves at least an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor, though it seemed he was actually the lead. Oh, and as a side note, there was no Katie Holmes in this one. (She’s from Toledo, and we try to be fans, but it was not very smart to turn down the role she had played in the previous Batman movie. She should have asked me for my advice!)
Then we went straight home because Princess Gail wanted to show me something. ; )
I hope the comments work. It’s been on the fritz. Apple NEEDS to do something about this!
