Weekend Update: Cards, Quartet, and Bowling

Today's post, the weekend before last. I'll get caught up yet!!!!


It started off as any normal weekend does.....with me counting down the minutes until 5:00. :-)

The boys came over to play cards that night...pinochle and canasta. We hadn't played in quite a while.

Saturday was jammed packed.

First up, a baby shower! My cousin, Jerry and his future wife Allie now have a son.

He came early, so the shower became a meet and greet. :-)

From there, I had to leave early and beat feet to meet up with my quartet. We were asked to perform in the Omaha Chorus of Sweet Adelines' winter show. The final run thru started at 2 in the afternoon.

The show was cute, as usual! We were reserved seats at the front of the audience, and made our way on stage when it was time to sing. I didn't know we'd be sitting out front to watch the show, it was a pleasant surprise. :-)

Unfortunately I couldn't use the flash on my camera...so I didn't get many shots of the individual actors.

Fortunately the full stage lights came up when the entire chorus was performing.

Nancy, chorus director.

Prince Charling, and Princess Cinderline.

Members of the intermission guest quartet, Tone-Henge.

Princess Cinderline and her evil stepmother.

The show was over by 9:00 pm, and the four of us (plus one of our coaches, Lhea) met for dinner after the show. It's not often we get to hang out, outside of rehearsals and performances. :-)

Sunday was another bowl-a-rama day. Mot and I were going to be out of town the following Sunday (duck hunting in North Platte turkey day weekend).....so we bowled our regular 3 games, and also pre-bowled for the next week.

On a really fun note, Steve's mom was in town for the holidays...so we finally got to meet her!!!

What a wonderful lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) :-)

The bowling alley was out of mountain dew...if you can believe that, so Mot ran across the street and grabbed one from the gas station.

You think it was big enough????? :-)

After we were finished, the 5 of us headed back to the boys' place for dinner...then Mot and I stopped at the grocery store for last minute turkey day supplies, and headed home ourselves.
