Well I haven’t blogged for the past few days, because I haven’t hardly been near a computer.
Andrea’s sister, Trina, came into town Friday afternoon. And we headed out to a United Way fundraiser Friday night. It was pretty fun. The food was good, but not great. They said the buffet line was ready and everybody was just sitting there. So I hopped up grabbed a plate, and what do you know, everybody else finally followed suit. Guess those hoity toity folks have a problem with starting a buffet. But it was a fun night. They had a magician/comedian there that was pretty good.
Saturday we went to the zoo here in Great Bend. It’s not the best zoo in the world, but it’s the best FREE zoo I’ve been to, and pretty nice for a town this size. But apparently free also describes the containment of the animals. There were a few peacocks and assorted birds roaming around. But by far the most startling, was the small alligator just swimming along in in the pond right next to one of the walking paths. Andrea being the nut that she is, decided it’d be fun to throw sticks at it. After snapping a couple sticks in half, it swims right at us! Let me remind you, there’s no barriers, or fences, or anything stopping this little guy from crawling up and snacking on a toe or two! So we trotted our little butts out of there! Still not sure if there was supposed to be an alligator there or not….
Saturday night we went to a going away party for one of the guys here at work. That was pretty fun, I played in a “dimes” tournament. Apparently I’m not very good at throwing a dime into a cup. I lost pretty easily. At least I still have some Mario Kart skillz!
Sunday got up early to haul our cat down to SWK for a little vacation of her own before we head to Hawaii this week. Andrea was going to come too, but she was up early up-chucking and decided to stay home and rest up. I felt sorry for her. But I didn’t want her to drag being sick out and into vacation time. So I went and had a good time. Got to see my family and get headed back in decent time. It’s so much nicer to live a little bit closer that I can head down and back in a day and actually have some time!
And now it’s Monday and there’s nothing to do at work again. But no biggie, it’s a three day work week for me!
