Fun Meter to MAX

 So my weekend was planned for months! I had purchased tickets to go see The Princess Bride Movie and Discussion with Cary Elwes who had recently written a book. (As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of The Princess Bride) . So I left home on Friday Night and got on the Redeye to Philly. Got a seat and was happy as a clam, until I arrived in Philly at 6am the next morning and I remembered that my tickets to the event were still on my bulletin board in my kitchen, back in Seattle. 

 I was frantic and my blood pressure spiked for hours while I waited for the box office to open, so I could call them and explain my stupidity and hope that they would let me into the theater anyway. I mean, I did have emails from them confirming that I had paid for my tickets. Finally after 10am on Saturday, I got through to the venue confirming that I had purchased tickets and that they would just let me pick up some replacements at will call. Whew, how great was that??!! Now I could take a nap and be fresh for the movie that night!!

And at the theater I ran into some letterboxing friends!! How about that? Small world :-)

The Movie was fun and it was great to listen to the question and answer with Cary Elwes. I also got to get a signed book and shake hands with the man in black (Dread Pirate Roberts) himself!

The next day, my friend, Deirdre and I went to see the tall ships in Philadelphia. We took the water taxi over to the Camden, NJ side

 It was a great day to be out on the water, Saturday was rainy and gross, but today was absolutely GORGEOUS!

There was a whole herd of food trucks !

And we even stopped at the Camden Aquarium to check out the Sharks and the Penguins.

Then it was back to PHL airport and back to work for me.
