We thought we'd see a movie. Lou was interested in "The Queen" so I logged on to see where it was showing. What luck, it was showing at our neighborhood theater at Palo Alto Square. Since it was close, about eight blocks, we walked over. Since we've been having a lot of rain, we picked up three matching $2.99 umbrellas at IKEA a couple of days ago. While it wasn't raining, there were wet looking broken clouds overhead so we each carried our nice walking stick type umbrellas.
We enjoyed the movie. It was a typical British movie without the Hollywood BOOMS and effects. It was an excellent film. The Palo Alto Square Cinemas are a typical movie house so pictures aren't needed unlike the wonderful theaters we've gone to just prior, the California in San Jose and the Stanford in Palo Alto. It was clean and in good repair and the film was in focus unlike your typical movie house.
When we exited the theater, the sky was clear. Our umbrellas had done the trick, as usual. If you have them, you don't need them.
