I watched “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” this weekend and was pleasantly surprised to see that I was not the only female in the audience. In fact, there were quite a few, and I wasn’t the only person over 30, either.
I am a movie junkie, but my case is particularly mild compared to some. I don’t blog about movies or listen to podcasts, but as you can see here I do sometimes write about what I’ve seen.
When I drove by Eddie Gabor’s old house, I was transported back 20 years — back to the wonderful Fourth of July outings my family once enjoyed there.
Eddie Gabor was my grandmother’s longtime companion. For the last 20 years of her life, Eddie treated her like gold.
She’d had a hard life, after all. Widowed in her late 40s, she struggled for years to pay the bills — she struggled to tend to the last of her six children (who all went on to do well in life).
Then Providence intervened.
