The more I think about it the more I was disappointed with yesterday’s Experience…again nothing terribly bad, just a lot of average stuff.
The rest of the weekend though was great!
Lisa’s brother, J, and his wife, Faith, were in town from NC.
They joined us Friday night over at the church for another awesome Coffeehouse.
I hate coffee, so Lisa asked the owner of Heavenly Grounds, the coffee house who caters our events, if she could make up some sort of chocolate drink just for me.
As I watched her make it, I realized that basically it was just a very rich glass of chocolate milk, with ice cubes in it and whipped cream on it.
Susan named it “The Gilbert”, gave it a special reduced price and it was quite the hit…I drank 2.
After getting everything cleaned up and put away, J & Faith followed us home to the new house. On the way there, I noticed a cop following us. After following us for a few miles he flipped his lights on.
My first thought was, “Hmmm, I wonder why J is getting pulled over?” But then after the cop passed him, I thought, “Hmmm, wonder why I’m getting pulled over?”
I pull over, the cops pulls over, then J, pulls in behind him. Which of course causes the cop to have to call for back-up and so by the time it was all said and done, a total of 4 cops were on the scene.
Turns out one of the brake lights on Lisa’s car has a short in it and was going in and out.
He didn’t give us a ticket though, so that was good.
Saturday I had 2 very productive meetings and then we got together with some friends of our who J also knew for dinner at Red Robin…can’t beat that!
Then we came back to the house and Bill and I shot pool. We discovered a new game in the book called, Pool Golf. I shot a 96…42 of those strokes came on 1 hole. It got to be so ridiculous that all I could do was laugh. Very challenging game though…I can’t wait to try it again.
Sunday morning we “made” J, stand outside Circuit City to buy us a Wii. Normally Lisa and I wouldn’t be able to do this and since Sunday’s are the day they get them in, we thought we’d just be out of luck for awhile…but J came through and stood there for 2 hours on our behalf…thanks J!
After the Experience we treated J & Faith to TGI Friday’s…uhh I think he deserved it…and we were joined by Lisa’s sister, her husband and our 2 nephews, along with Andy and Gayle. A good time was had by all.
Andy and I set-up the Wii, Gayle listened to music and Lisa napped the rest of the afternoon away.
Last night was CAYA and afterwards we all went to Applebee’s. Gotta love the quesadilla burger!
Yes, if it sounds like I eat out a lot you’d be correct.
Yes, I did come home and play Wii.
Yes, my arm does hurt.
Hey on a serious note, keep Brian Miller’s (lead guitar player on the team) sister down in GA in your prayers. She was involved in a really serious car accident on Friday night. She has multiple serious injuries and will be laid up for quite a while.
