It’s a Wonderful Life!

I have to admit, life has been good to me over the last year. After going through some rough years I was beginning to wonder when things might fall into place.  I finally feel at ease with my life and I am really happy about that.  Don’t get be wrong I don’t sleep on a bed of roses nor would I want to.  I can’t even imagine how that could be a good thing what with the thorns and all but Life is good.

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle

So I went to the Vineyard with Sarah on Saturday.  I stayed up in the apartment until she got out of work and then we went to see the play  “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  It was excellent.  They did it as if it were a radio play back in the 40’s. You could see the special effects guy making all the sounds as if he were in the radio station.  They even sang little radio commercials in between acts.

The next day we went shopping.  We went to a beautiful sheep farm where they sold nice gifts, to a chocolate store ( I stayed in the car), and we did a lot of shopping in Vineyard Haven.

Vineyard Haven.  You can see Sarah’s store across the street.

On Monday Sarah and the Wasband and I went to the Imax theater to see   “The Day The Earth Stood Still”.  I enjoyed it but I liked the original version better.

This is a video of Barry trying to push the wheel chair up the ramp at the mall while trying to tell Sarah of our last trip here with Leslie when we went to see Waterfire in Providence. On that trip he and I ended up hysterically laughing because he couldn’ t seem to push me up the hill.

Sarah and I still have a lot of baking and making of gifts to do.  I can’t believe Christmas is next week.  We have our tree up but we will decorate it tonight.  Sarah and Barry did outdoor lights last night. It’s getting to feel a lot like Christmas.
