1-24 Awesome taco salad, a Mule, a Di Caprio Netflix and the SPLC.

This Hanging Artwork has been with us for years.

Every morning before starting up the pellet stove, I turn on the main living room lights with a switch camouflaged in the large spider web on the wall.

Today, we enjoyed our morning routine. Lietta was planning a major cooking day using new keto-friendly recipes and an assortment of meat was thawing on the butcher block in the kitchen.

Then, out of the blue, she asked if I wanted to got to the movies. She’d seen a review of a current film and decided it would be good for us to see.

You see, it’s about this older guy who foolishly seizes on an opportunity to earn big bucks following the loss of  his home and horticulture business through foreclosure. He’s in his late 80’s and my Sweetheart thought we might learn something. We did.

But first she found this awesome cheap deal at a long time favorite and it was totally keto-friendly (and wasn’t served in a big bowl-shaped shell). And … are you ready for this?

The Azteca is right next door to the Regal Theater. After dinner, we sauntered in with tickets I bought while waiting for the taco salad, sat down, started digesting good stuff and wondered what Mr. Eastwood was going to show us.

It’s based on an actual event involving the other fellow.

The Mule is a 2018 American mystery film produced and directed by Clint Eastwood, who also plays the lead role. The screenplay, by Nick Schenk, is based on The New York Times article “The Sinaloa Cartel’s 90-Year-Old Drug Mule” by Sam Dolnick, which recounts the true story of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran in his 80s who became a drug courier for the Sinaloa Cartel.

Afterwards we came home, turned up the heat and Lietta watched a Netflix Original Documentary that she thoroughly enjoyed:

Struggle: The Life and Lost Art of Szukalski (2018)

And I finished reading a very good autobiography by Morris Dees, one of the founders of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
