I lost 3.2 this week. Last weeks gain and this weeks loss must be part fluctuation and not true gain/loss.
Haven't played much golf this week. We played 9 on Saturday before getting rained out. Sunday Fairplay had a men's tournament so couldn't play. Wednesday we had our annual ladies scamble. I had friends from Wayne over to play and we had a great time.
Tuesday night Jacob played baseball in Pilger at 6 and Abby played softball in Wisner at 7:30 so got to watch both of them. Last night Jacob played in Wisner and Abby in Wayne. Couldn't make them both so I went to Jake's game. He got on base all 3 times he batted and made it home.
Tonight, weather permitting, is couples night. Jerry won't be home and Denny has to work so Donna and I are going to be a "couple."
Better get busy and see if I can get my basement back to some sort of order and hope we don't have another stretch of rain.

The Lodge Reservation

I started speed dialing at exactly 9am to get the reservation, but someone else got there first. So I will find out their name, and we will just show up and act as if we are part of the "whatever" family and enjoy meeting new people. We can probably pass for the branch of the family from North Dakota. Okay?

And if that isn't going to suit us, I have a back up plan. I rented it for Saturday, the 20th. Thought this might work out better than going to the last Sunday. How does this sound?

I had a really bad week, gained 2.4 lbs. Too much food, not enough exercise.

Reunion Hall Report

The hall is rented for the 14th. Somebody is having a 3-day reunion. Imagine that.

Anyway -- we will try first thing on the 21st to get it. Any objections speak now.
And that is probably Father's Day.

Friday the 13th

I stayed the same this week.

Jerry has decided he is not ready to retire. His truck engine bit the big one. He found a buyer that would replace the motor so he sold it and bought a newer one. If Jerry is forced to retire, Joe will buy him out. I guess I will stay with the 4 day week for awhile longer. I met with our retirement guy this morning and he says with our SS and retirement we could probably be ok until we are 90 if we retired at 66.

I think the water has all receded in the basement. I have cut the carpet into strips and tomorrow will load it in the pickup and haul away. Don't think I will replace it.

I gained 1 lb this week. There is always a lot of food around at the NWAGA golf tournaments. I didn't do very well, but had a good time. The weather cooperated and we did not get wet.
Golf league on Wednesday was rained out after about 3 holes. The clubhouse is a great place to watch lightening storms and it was an awesome display Wednesday night.

Reunion '09

It's our turn to reserve the lodge. Doesn't it have to be reserved in JUNE?
