In the face?

Good morning, it is Monday.

This was quite a weekend. Warmest weekend of the year, Marta Golf Tournament, a soccer game, the last day the pool was open this year, kick-off at Sunday School along with Pastor's last day, and 10 year anniversary of 9/11 which was all over the TV.

Here are some of the crew running the Marta Connell Golf Tournament. Steve and I played OK, we just never had any spark to get us on a roll. After our round we hurried over, took the middle two spots at the table above, and did the scoring and awards and such. The tournament went very well and once again raised plenty of money.

Steve and I hanging in a golf carts a few holes into the round.

The last day of the pool was fun. Lillie and I competed in the water balloon toss. We made it the first couple of tosses, but 15 yards got us. Maren had a good day at Church, she said there were lots of tears and applause and such as it was Pastor Strand's last day. It was also Sunday School kick-off, and as Maren is a Sunday School teacher, she got to be part of the fun. I missed it as I was at Preston's soccer game. Preston had a wonderful game, scoring 4 times to lead his team to a relatively easy victory. The other parents had a big problem with Preston's speed and ease of scoring goals. The other parents were rudely yelling at the refs and the players...after the second time Preston got a breakaway and a slick goal, a rude parent (not the normal parent) yelled out, "If he does that again, punch him in the face!" Preston never got punched in the face, but he did score two more times. We don't see too many parents yelling garbage out of their mouths...but yesterday was just such a day and I feel bad for the kids on that team with their garbage mouth parents.

This add for a TV show or something is on the back cover of Time. Just strange...but the date is good.

See you tomorrow.

Sounds like an action-packed weekend. But how rude of those soccer parents! If their sons were as good as Preston, they certainly wouldn't like it! Hmph!

I'm glad nobody punched Preston in the face! And, I hope he can find a better way to spend his birthday than watching the premier of Two and a Half Men.
