Darn you, Netflix.
You gave me thirteen episodes of Grace and Frankie all at once, forcing me to decide what the hell to do.
Do I binge or not?
I finished Season 3 of Grace and Frankie last night. The third season became available on March 24, so I do not feel that I binged.
Grace and Frankie is one terrific series, and I hope there is a fourth season.
Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen, and Sam Waterston. What else is there to say? These four skilled actors are superb.
What grabs me the most are the characters these four actors play. And, of course, the characters are persons of a certain age (like my age, okay?). Grace, Frankie, Robert, and Sol are real. They are all intelligent, caring, flawed, quirky, and damned lovable.
Season 3 started out slowly for me, but the story soon gained some steam and then things got serious FAST. Blew me away. Made me cry, and scared me to death. All of a sudden, I discovered the characters were in crisis.
My fictional friends were hurting, so I was in pain also.
I get really emotional about my stories, in case you haven’t noticed!
Grace and Frankie is a great story about four older adults who love each other (most of the time, anyway). It’s about marriage, divorce, family, love, and loss.
It is also about aging, a subject that is an interest of mine right now!
Kudos to Netflix.
When does season 4 start?
My grandson Luka, 5, is keeping two large baking potatoes in the refrigerator at his house.
They are his “potato friends.”
Luka added a small new red potato to his “potato friend” collection this weekend.
“They’re a family, Bunny Beth,” Luka told me with pride.
One of the baking potatoes is starting to look a little wrinkled, though.
I hope it does not start to turn black, or get sprouts all over it.
Luka will be heartbroken.
And yes, I had a very good time with my family last night and today.
I took the bus home today, and treated myself to breakfast along the way.
Then, this afternoon, I took a nice long nap, because my granddaughter V kept me up quite late last night. She’s okay, it’s just hard for V to let go of her day and give herself over to sleep.
Tonight, I’m going to watch “The Name of the Rose” thanks to a Netflix video.
