This weekend started out kind of low key. Todd Willliams came to the house Friday night as he does every month for his Naval Reserve duty. He stays with us instead of hassling with the Navy's housing arrangements. Andrew had duty and John Ortiz had to work.
Saturday night Josh joined us for our regular activities. Todd loves playing "Apples to Apples" so that's the game we played. But to make things a little more interesting with only four players, we added a blind "banker" player that added a card to those selected. Believe it or not, the banker won! Go figure!
Then we decided to play a round of "Hot Dice". Two games in one night!
But finally, we got "gamed out". And it was only eight o'clock, I suddenly remembered that earlier in the week Todd had asked if we could watch the Ohio State football game. That sounded like a good idea to everyone and we transitioned into the living room. Josh mentioned that the Cubs were playing the Dodgers tonight too. Sure enough our television channel line up let us get that game too. So for the rest of the evening we kept flipping back and forth between the Ohio State game and the Cubs game.
Both of the games turned out to be really good! Edge of the seat nail biters actually.
But Ohio State won it in overtime. All of us had to admit they didn't play real well. Wisconsin should have actually won, because they played better for three quarters of the game! Ohio won with a touchdown in overtime.
The Cubs also won! The Cubs and Dodgers were tied three all going into the eighth inning, and the Cubs hit a grand slam with the bases loaded. Then in the top of the ninth inning the Cubs got another run which made the end result Cubs 8 and Dodgers 3. The Cubs are breaking a 108 year losing streak this year!
Both games were supposed to end and about eleven o'clock, but went on until twelve. Since Todd was staying over anyway, and Josh was going to be coming to Sunday school and church in the morning, we had him stay over too. Didn't make much sense to have him drive home a half hour just to sleep and then drive half an hour back in the morning!
The guys are starting to call this the "Wagner Inn" and the "J & W B&B"!
Sunday morning we had a new sailor in tow to church! James Lokey from the USS Bataan, who is brand new in the area, and a friend of Yvonne's cousin's daughter, came to Sunday school and church with us.and then joined us for dinner at the house. Andrew joined us for dinner too! We always miss him when he has the duty. But I'm sure we'll miss him even more when he gets out of the Navy in March.
