My one son who lives in state has lately been seeking to spend time with me on Saturdays, pretty much like I did with my dad the last six years of his life (after he had been given six months to live).
I like this.
He has a certain window of time available since he runs his shop on the weekend.

We've gone to the movies a couple times, then had a late lunch after.
Today, we're going to another world.

I got to thinking about it yesterday: Why am I so excited about going to see "John Carter (of Mars)"?
This is a film based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' (author of Tarzan) books about a man transported to Mars, and the civilization he finds there.

Well, I've seen the previews and it's been a lonnnng time since I read one of the books.

I'm looking forward to the sense of wonder as I travel to Mars with him and discover what he discovers in a way that no other science fiction film has done for me, that I recall.

That's after I spend this morning discovering what's making a thumping sound under my car, and a squeaking noise under my truck.

Adventure awaits!
