Labor Day

We've had a quiet holiday weekend - after our wonderful dinner at Margaret and Bobby's on Saturday. John went out to row early this morning.

We went to play duplicate this evening.  We haven't been to the Bridge Center on Monday nights, since we usually play on Monday afternoon.  Obviously today, the Civic Center was closed, so no afternoon games.  We thought we'd try another day.  I think we'll probably wind up somewhere in the middle of the pack for today's games.

It's back to a more normal schedule tomorrow.  At least after I have an early follow-up appointment with the optometrist.  It's a check to see how I tolerated the eye drops he prescribed for my early glaucoma.  From there, I'll head on to the exciting grocery store trips.

Sleepy Sunday

Pop-up showers. Did
Sunday laundry. Nothing else.
Dinner, left-overs.

A great day!

We had a great day. We took John's cousin Bob and Tina from here, and drove the scenic route over the back roads to Margaret's. Everybody got there uneventfully. The food, of course, was fabulous. Bobby fried fish - the best ever. Margaret got the rest done, homegrown tomatoes, vinegar slaw, cornbread, green beans, pinto beans, corn, pulled pork, the fried fish fillets, and banana pudding for dessert. We were all stuffed and so great to see everybody!

We came back on the interstate, with just a few sprinkles and no bad traffic. Those heading west had a hard time working their way through driving rain. It rained hard after we got home, with some wind gusts. Glad we're tucked in safe and sound. I'm sure that'll do us for the weekend.

We’ve now played duplicate several times, mostly sort of muddling along. We’ve played the most on Friday afternoons with the “99er” group - no one with more than 99 Master Points is allowed to play.

Last Friday, we felt we played poorly. The cards were bad, but mainly we just didn’t play well. And we came in next-to-last. Our goal for today was just to play better than we did last week.

At the end of the afternoon, we felt that we had bid and played our hands much more comfortably. When we got home (after having dinner with Tina) we checked the Bridge Club website to see how things went.

And we came in FIRST!!!!! Needless to say, we’re very pleased. Now we have something to live up to next week.

A&E has announced they are cancelling Longmire.   It does say in the article that the producers are shopping the series to other networks.  We can only hope.

A hard morning

I've "graduated" from my PT sessions. The therapists gave me a t-shirt and hugs, with the instructions for the home regimen for two months. I'm really amazed at what I'm able to do now. Definitely not 100%, maybe up to 75%, but ever so much better than before this last surgery. (I think I've said this before, but...)

The termite guy has come, and all is okay in that department. And the yard guy cut the grass. Nothing else was on our docket today, except for dinner with Tina and Missy.

Last night was a “not much sleep” night, so I’ll probably be in the bed early.

An unexciting Tuesday

I did my grocery run this morning, so that’s out of the way for another week. John seems to have fixed the sink problem, and we let it get good and dry before we put stuff back. And we will be putting in a new faucet.

There was nothing else on the docket for the rest of the day. Tina came by and stayed for dinner with us.
