I am on spring break this week so I left the house at 7:30 and drove to the mall to walk. I usually walk outside but I can walk much faster at the mall because I don't have to watch for potholes or bad sidewalks. The temp is great and there's music, lame as it is, but it's for all ages. And, of course, there are no shoppers that early. Then I went to Bob Evans for a light breakfast and worked on a poem. Next I decided to stop at Curves in Crown Point and did two rounds. Then I stopped and washed my car and pretty soon I'm heading outside to clean up my front yard. That will be more than I can handle for today, I'm sure. Car club meeting tonight.
So, what does all this have to do with Johnny Depp? Are you tricking us Amp? Trying to get us to read your blog?
Well, I had forgotten, today is the day that Johnny and the rest of the crew rolled into Crown Point to do filming on Dillinger, his new movie. I couldn't believe the crowds of people hoping for a look, standing behind barracades. It was fun to see the trailers parked everywhere and the caterer was firing up the grill to feed the hungry actors. My son lives right on the square and I called him to see if he had seen anything. He and his girlfriend were having breakfast at one of the local downtown restaurants and from what they were told the actors would be out for a visit at 1 p.m. If he gets any good pictures I'll share them. For those of you who don't know, the Crown Point jail is the one John Dillinger escaped from using a gun made of soap. For those of you who don't know who John Dillinger was, he was an infamous bank robber/gangster from the 30s/40s who was turned in by the famous lady in red and shot and killed in front of the Biograph Theatre in Chicago.
Kinda neat huh?
