Sunday and the Sox are going down..... the Stankees. UGH! Oh well, maybe they will snap out of it in the ninth!

We ate outside on the deck tonight, steak, stuffed potatoes, winter squash and we each had an ear of corn picked fresh from Sandy's garden. Three years she's been growing corn...tonight is the first time I had any of it...and it was very, very good.

Went to the Schultzberg Family reunion yesterday. Always a great time....and yesterday was no exception. Couldn't stay long as we had a dinner date and tickets to an event at Foxwoods in the evening. Went to pick up Bob and Wini on my way to Uxbridge and they had forgotten all about it...Bob was in his shorts and t-shirt, bare footed, standing on a stepstool, washing the kitchen cupboards when I got there. He looked very cute with his new glasses. Makes him look 20 years younger!

Wini was trying to convince him to go with me, but he felt it would be too much for him and I have to agree. He doesn't know everyone there and it creates anxiety for him. It's too confusing now for him to be in large groups of folks he doesn't know well. I told him I would have Shirley and Gus come down for dinner and invite him and Wini to come too. He liked that idea and so did they. Jean and Dave will bring Shirl and Gus. It will be nice.

So I went alone and stayed for a couple of hours, then flew home in time to throw some different clothes on and get in the car to go to Janet's. We made it there in time, met Barry for the first time and really liked him. Janet, Jess, Barry, Sandy and I loaded into their van and off we went to Foxwoods. We met Jean and Dorothy at California Pizza (Dorothy's suggestion) and we had a very good meal there. I would go again.

Then we played some slots, I got ripped off by one of the machines....I had $18.45 credit, punched out and took the slip to another machine to play. It wouldn't let me play and pushed out a ticket for .20! I took it to a machine attendant who traced the whole thing...the machine ripped me off...but someone came along behind me and played the rest of my credits! I didn't see anyone at that machine...but that's what the printout Maybe that's how the casinos make their money now. Good thing I gamble only about once a year and limit it to $20!

Then it was time for the show: "The Legends" show. It was comprised of celebrity lookalikes/singalikes. "Garth Brooks, Gwen Stefani, Bette Midler, Elton John and Elvis." Most of them were pretty good and it was fun singing along with them. We had a great time, laughing and singing.

I really like Barry and Sandy did too. Jean and Dorothy couldn't get over how easily he got along with the four of us who he had never met before. He is an easy-going guy and we are very happy for Janet! She deserves the best!

Well...there is one out in the ninth, doesn't look good for the home team. I've taken my night meds and should be crashing I'll say:

Nighty night.
