The warm weather has returned, yahoo! The wind has slowed down and the temperatures have warmed up.
Last night was a typical Friday night with music playing until 2am and then just before 4am there were some enormous metallic booms coming from the street out front. About 20 minutes later the sirens started and when they got close they stopped. On the south side of the street there is a barked up palm tree, a snapped off and uprooted palm tree and a broken metal street light. There are a couple of windshields and miscellaneous glass on the boulevard as well. Likely someone did not survive the crash. Many nights, very late we hear the cars racing flat out, at very high speeds on the street out front. Have I mentioned, it isn’t a good idea to drive at night here?
The Bocce tournament started yesterday with teams of two playing each other on two side by side courts. Connie and I played Sam and Fred yesterday morning at 10am and were whupped soundly. Boohoo!
Aren’t Connie and I cute. This is us before the game when we were still smiling!
That’s Fred on the left and Sam on the right. Did I mention they whupped us!!!
Today we played Jeannette and Brenda and we were leading 14 to 3 at one point. I was playing really well….who knows why…and so was Connie. However, Jeannette and Brenda didn’t play well the first half of the game and then they got their second wind and we lost 21 to 20. That’s just sad! Since we lost two in a row we are now out of the tournament so I guess we’ll just have cheer everyone else on!
Jeannette, Brenda, Kathy and Connie. I made Connie take off her sunglasses and turn up the brim of her hat and she looks cute….kind of like Gilligan!
Marion, Jeri, Manny and Sandi showing her Bocce skills!
Fred, Regina, Sam & Glenn. Regina is really a lot of fun!
Will you look at the height Rita gets when she throws the ball. Amazing! What loft!
Connie is refereeing this game. Don’t make a mistake!
Jeannette and Bill. They won the tournament two years ago. Both really good players and nice people to boot!
So, we are finished round two and anyone who lost two games is out. Oh, that would be Connie and I. Boohoo.
Tonight is New Year’s Eve and most people will stay in the park. Tomorrow is a new year.
Feliz Ano Nuevo to all!
