Auntie M and Doc are leaving early tomorrow morning to head towards the Triangle area in NC, near the airport where Doc will fly out early Thurs AM (to MN for a long weekend).  The guys at the Days Inn there know us and give us the same King room most times.

We’ll kennel the dogs overnight and spend the day checking out various things in the Big City.  It also happens to be my birthday, so we’re planning a nice dinner out and an even nicer evening after.  On our list are:

Checking out leather couches: We are starting to do our research as this will be a purchase not made lightly and one we want to last.  We’re narrowing down styles, colors, etc. while we build the Couch Fund.

A Barnes & Noble stop: Must have, whenever we are near one.  The closest one to us is 1 1/2 hrs away, so when we are near a B&N or a Borders, we stop.  I want to get the new James Taylor CD, too.

Boots: I am in the market for a pair of short, chocolate brown, size 8 wide, very soft leather boots.  Not too picky, am I?

A movie: Ditto our time to get to a theatre, although there’s a small one only an hour away . . . which is why we don’t go often.  But we plan to try to get to one tomorrow.  And we only have this one chance for quite a while, so I’m looking for a GREAT movie to see, worth the time and money and maybe with a few laughs along the way.

Any suggestions out there???
