9:45pm Friday June 1st

Friday night, we try to watch a movie usually.  During the week in the evenings we’ll usually watch a variety of TV shows.

This is a scene from A Man Called Ove.  I had heard good things about this book and had been listening to it as an audiobook. Steven had heard about this movie because of the Saab connection.

This was a scene when we were learning about Ove’s wife, she was deceased in the movie and this was a flashback.

This evening we did Thai take out for dinner. Our local Thai restaurant is amazing.  They have this dish, Guay Tiew Kua Gai  and it is quite possibly one of the best things I have eaten, ever.  EASILY in the Top 5.  And it’s just down the street from me and is $8.95.   Steven has a sweet tooth and always gets the Pad Thai.  We got a bottle of cheap fizzy to go with, and it was perfect!

Our favorite line from the movie was from the scene with Ove teaching a neighbor woman how to drive, and she accidently bumped another car. Ove is a lifelong Saab driver and always rivalled with another neighbor over his Volvo.  The woman was horrified she bumped the Volvo, but Ove looked over his shoulder, saw the car and said, it doesn’t matter, it’s just a Volvo.   Hilarious!!!
