Last week I didn't want to do the dishes. So I left them in the sink soaking and headed out to the historic Kentucky Theater in downtown Lexington. I picked up my friend Carrie, both of us needed a respite from the activity of our lives.
But I was good last week. I didn't know how bad traffic would be downtown, and I was coming from a new direction, so I gave us plenty of time. Thank goodness...
There was a long line at the ticket counter.
Then there was a really long line for concessions.
Then we couldn't find seats because the place was packed.
We found our seats and got to know our neighbors as we listened to the movie organ music that was playing, creating an atmosphere that took movie goers back to a time when going to the movies was an occasion to be relished. The theater manager came out and gave us a brief history of the movie we were going to see, The African Queen with Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart.
