Lobsterama and a Movie

Today, my son is 33! In fact, as I am writing this, he is officially 33! Time-wise he was born at 10:15 in the morning :)

Look at that! Still wearing a bib!!

He sneaked into this world a little early -- I had not even had my tour of the delivery room and had not one iota of what to expect! What a wonderful experience though! All grown up now and doing what he loves to do -- working in the film industry, producing indie films, going to film festivals, partnering in a historic theater. A dream life! 

When he was in the third grade, they had career day and the kids were to dress up as what they wanted to be when they grew up....

His sign says "Actor"
I think he got that pretty close!

Last night we had our family celebration dinner at Lucile's, a fabulous restaurant in Ft. Worth. They were having Lobsterama so of course we all had lobster! 

I had never eaten a fresh Live Maine Lobster before -- lobster tails but never the whole shebang sitting on my plate! Boy, was it good!

We all had to indulge in a bit of dessert! 
I got a peach cobbler, with ice cream :)
Yum yum and more yum!

The guys got Cherries Jubiliee -- flambeed  and served with
three scoops of ice cream! 
They shared and then dipped their spoons into my peach cobbler!

He said he should have worn his lobster shirt!

Then we met up with my daughter (she couldn't go to the dinner) and went to the screening of Adam's latest movie -- it's film festival time in Ft. Worth! The film is called Bob Birdnow in the short form and the official (long) title is Bob Birdnow's Remarkable Tale of Human Survival and the Transcendence of Self.

Excellent. If you get a chance to see it when it airs, do so! It's about a man who is giving a motivational speech and has a melt-down in the process. Well acted and very emotional. Basically one man speaking, but he paints such a picture that you feel you are right there with him, experiencing his life as it happens. It actually began as a play, and became a movie.

Adam produced and was also assistant director on this movie.

Star... Barry Nash

So, Happy Birthday to Adam -- I got interrupted a few times while typing this and it's now past 12 noon --- I suppose I'm out of the delivery room now and am a real Mama!!

sharing the various blues at Blue Monday (even though that lobster's red!!)
and at GRAND Social

Happy Birthday to Adam!

I loved the comment that he is 33 and still wearing his bib!

I have a picture of Mr. Magpie grinning from ear to ear while holding a HUGE Maine Lobster on a platter, somewhere near Bar Harbor. The only thing better than their lobsters is Maine itself. But I will take a lobster any time, any day!

Neat about the movie. I know you must be so proud of your son!

Happy Blue Monday,

happy Birthday to Adam!
How great that he's working jobs that he loves.
Ice cream and fruit pies/cobblers are my favorite desserts.
I would love to see his movie!
