"Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns"

This morning I called my Great-Aunt Theresa and asked if she was doing anything special this afternoon ( yes, I know that it's Easter Sunday - she already got her prays on) and she said no. So, we popped into Tal's on Florence Ave.,
In Inglewood, CA and had brunch. The entire staff was there - Bridgette and Leonard and Rose, and it was very nice. The food was good old traditional Southern comfort food. Aunt Theresa had Salmon Croquettes, grits and eggs, and I had bacon, scrambled eggs and home fried potatoes (the ones with onions and bell peppers) and she had green tea and I opted for coffee. It was as if I'd stepped into a diner in Shreveport, Louisiana - yes, that good!
Well, we then drove over to Hughes Shopping Center, right off of Sepulveda Blvd., and Centinella, and saw "Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns". Aunt Theresa was thrilled to see Madea in action again. We sat and laughed so hard throughout the movie! Aunt Theresa kept saying, " That Tyler Perry is so so smart!" Or, " That Tyler Perry and Mudea are at it again, and I just LOVE it!" Auntie is 80+ and thinks that Tyler Perry brilliant, and wants the world to know it - so it is done!
Angela Bassett, Jenifer Lewis, and that oh so fine, fine, fine young man named Rick Fox were all excellent!

I love the fact that Tyler Perry always ties in the importance of thinking about how one's choices in life will have a positive or negative effect on one's future.

The entire cast was great and I am encouraging everyone to go out and see "Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns" this week if you want to see something with flavor.
