      We're going out to eat at an upscale steak restaurant in San Fran and won't be in town to see the movie about hungry people.

      Darn.

    Phooey! I really wanted to see this, too, but wasn't able to attend. Will there be a repeat?

    • I don't think so, but if you have Netflix you should be able to watch it. (Readers, btw, congratulations on not taking the bait, above. I'm getting better at that, too. It's best for my blood pressure.)

        No bait dearie. My husband and I went to enjoy a very special occasion and could not make the movie. The dinner was just the two of us, and we had a wonderful time.
