We had a quiet morning discussing recent events.
After lunch we drove over to Three Rivers Medical Center which is owned by Asante. Shirley now works in the new Outpatient Center. She took us to her old office on the fourth floor to admire the view, and then down to the first floor where her new office is, to meet her co-workers.
On the way to Three Rivers we spotted this trailer hitch cover on a half-ton truck or pick-up truck, or, according to old Metro, the Canadian comedian, a "pick-me-up truck". The owner of the truck is obviously a hunter.
Reta took pictures of the new Outpatient Center. The Three Rivers Medical Center is on the left in the picture of the end of the building with the Asante sign.
We met Shirley's friend, Linda, in the Outpatient Unit. She had been there for a meeting in the morning and, after the meeting, realized she did not have her cellphone, so she returned to the building and found that Security had her phone. So we got to have a visit with her.
We planned to go to the 5:45 showing of "Hidden Figures". Linda went her way and we went to do a bit of shopping.
We had an early supper/dinner and headed for the Southgate Cinemas to meet Linda and see the movie. We were admitted as seniors for the price of $7.00 each. When have any of you enjoyed such a bargain?
When we arrived at the theater we were the only viewers. Later, two more seniors were seated in the theater. When the show started, there were only the 6 of us watching the show.
We were very impressed by the story of young African-American women who had such fine math skills that they assisted NASA in the early days of space exploration and in operating computers. This story was true and the three main characters were the real women who were so talented, and were part of these programs. Granted, one of these women is now 97, so the women were represented by young women actors.
We had a cool rainy day here and like rivers in California, the Rogue River seems to be near flooding.
