Mini Adventure Ends… Al Di La’… but, there is “Beyond”

We’re almost done… Actually, we were pretty done by the time we reached our room … We showered… put on our PJs… and since we actually hadn’t eaten supper… just fried pickles much earlier… we had on our minds to warm up the leftover pizza  from the night before… It was still so good…Turning on the TV… what to our surprise… one of our favorite old movies from when we were teens came on…A Summer Place

  with troy Donahue and Sandra DeeWhat a great way to end our little adventure… It couldn’t have worked out better!…

The movie came out in 1959… so we were actually 10 going on 13… This was probably a memorable movie because it addressed things that were so taboo in our young lives… Affairs… pregnancy … young love… And as we commented… not having to show all of the details… as they do now… Your imagination could paint the pictures even better than the real action… Why did this have to change??? … Just have to show more, more, more… and now our kids have no innocence It’s right under their noses… So they say, “It must be OK to do these things”… So sad!… Can you believe we got so much out of watching an old movie???…

I have to admit Sandra Dee  was sure a cutie… and Troy Donahue wasn’t bad either …

 

It brought back memories of another favorite movie of mine with him in it…”Rome Adventure

and the songAl Di La‘” which means “Beyond”… Just love that song and the music… We stayed up and reminisced some more… talked to our guys at home… Father’s Day  was coming that Sunday… Already had received a call from my son to come to their house for dinner and swimming… Sounded like a winner to me… Something to look forward to after having to leave our mini vacation

We slept soundly… as we had been doing… Vera got up before me and brought me back fresh coffee to have with another donut from the Friar Donut Shop… our last hurrah!… The coffee tasted so good since I had warmed up my leftover coffee the morning before… Thanks Vera!… You’re a great cousin!…

We packed… left the keys… and hit the road… We arrived at her house in Murfreesboro, TN  and I immediately got into my car and headed North to Louisville... I would make pretty good time if I could miss the Nashville going home… after work… traffic…

Arrived home safely… greeted by my husband , son and cat, Jill… I could tell they had missed me…. Isn’t that grand!…

The T-shirts I got for my guys at home… were a hit… and others enjoyed their small gifts as well…

I just saw a coupon for Zip-Lining near French Lick , Indiana through the Hoosier Forest… A stay at the French Lick Springs Hotel

…check out the casino  … Is that my next mini adventure???…We’ll see!

Please check out AlDiLa’…it is so wonderful…
