Weekend Wrapup

What a great weekend! It started Friday with our faculty/staff golf tourney. Other than the high winds, it was a fun day. It did take our foursome a long time to get around the course. We teed off at 1 pm and we were still playing at 6:30. We skipped the last hole because we did not see anyone else around from Washburn. Plus, they had taken away the sign on hole eighteen that we had won the previous two years, so we knew everyone was gone. As it turned out, the coordinator was extremely unhappy with Western Hills where we had the tournament. This was my third time to play at Western Hills for the tournament, but this was definitely the longest. The club seemed to be unorganized and wanted everyone to start on hole one instead of a shot-gun start. Odd! We still had a fun time playing golf. Our team came in last. Great!

Friday night after golf, we went to Tailgators where the post ceremony was held. With us being so late, a lot of the golfers had already left. Apparently two groups quit after four hours of play and they had only finished nine holes. We had fun at Tailgators too talking to those that were still around. The food was great and the beer was cold! I did not stick around too late that night as Carrie was home sick. She did not go to work on Friday and is still feeling under the weather today. I left about 10 and picked up something to eat for Carrie on the way home.

Saturday night I had a lot of fun meeting up with Jason from twenty years ago. Jason and I went to grade school together and up through high school. It was great to think back to our childhood years and then what all has happened between grade school and now. We remembered funny stories and had a good time talking. Carrie was supposed to go with me, but with her being sick, she stayed home. I met Jason at Free State brewery in Lawrence and the tornado sirens went off. We had a good meal and drank a few Free State beers. It was a good night!

Sunday, well, it has been doing a lot of nothing. Carrie is still not feeling great, so we watched some movies and I listed to the Royals. Oh the Royals, they lost again and go to 9 and 9 (or something like that). Hopefully they do not go on a downward spiral to losing. They start another series tomorrow, so hopefully they can get things back in gear.

Well, the weekend is coming to a end. I am catching up with Javi this evening via Skype video and going over his bills. It will be good when he is back in the States.

Well, have a good week and I will talk to you again later.
