I can tell you this that the rain did not effect any of our plans. Even though it rained everyday, and it even poured back here a few hours once we got home. Now we have to keep our fingers crossed as our last bocce game of the season is tomorrow night and we are in first place, and guess what, rain in the forecast for tomorrow night.

We will just have to keep our fingers crossed as it does not look good with rain coming in later on today. Last year we finished in 3rd. So now we are in first.

We won our bocce game on Wednesday night. The games finished at 8:45 and at 9:15 it started pouring rain. So we ended the season in first place and we tied for most bocce's.

Congratulations!!! I hope the other teams weren't sore losers. Hard to believe its almost fall! Cold and windy here today.
Yes, after a long and very hot summer, we all know all to well what is around the corner. Those other 2 teams that were going for first place are indeed sore looses.


So we leave Sunday for 8 days in CLE. Going for a convention.

Bocce Ball Winners! Did you win anything or is it for fun?
Have fun at the convention. (You get away from the jerk) That should make it fun just for that.
Safe Travels.

OK, the first place team gets $40, and then the team with the most bocce's gest $30. Since we tied for the most bocce's we decided to split the money. So each 1 of our players gets $55. Each player has to pay $35 to join the team.


We fly stand-by, so since the flights are all overbooked we are driving on Sunday. It is about a 4 1/2 hour drive, so not too bad. You are right, it will be good to be away from the jerk for a week.

Have fun. It was probably better to drive than fly. I am sure every flight is going to be packed. Safe Travels.
You see, Bill is retired from United, and we fly stand-by. So that is what we were doing going there, and we had confirmed seats coming back. So he canceled the return and now we are driving. It is only like a 4 hour drive. We would have had to leave 3 hours before the flight out of O'Hara, and we would be 3/4 of the way there. The nice thing about us driving we will not have luggage restriction, like if we were flying.
