We live in a small town.  Three hundred people, one tiny post office, a gas station/mini mart, a diner, and a bakery with also has a laundromat. Not much activity goes on around the town, so if you want some excitement, you need to drive 15 miles to the big city of Newport, WA.  Population around 2,100 people and I'm happy to report that there is indeed a Starbucks inside the Safeway grocery store!
While Craig has been home during his time off, he happily passed his DOT physical, (won't have to worry about that for two years),  made the mandatory stop at the hardware store for some supplies for a couple of minor "honey-do) requests, and last night, for the first time, we enjoyed an evening at the local movie theater in town, The Roxy.
When we first moved here, they only showed movies on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.  They must be under new management, because now they are open every evening, (no daytime matinees), and even managed to divide the old building into three viewing theaters.  Not too shabby for a small town cinema.
We enjoyed "Snow White and the Huntsman", along with about 20 other people who ventured out last night.  Know what else was pretty cool?   Only $3.00 for a large popcorn, instead of the really inflated prices we have paid in the past. Craig and I both agreed it was a real treat to get out to the big town for a date night, and something we'll have to make a habit of whenever he comes in for home time.
