It was Memorial Day, and we had an invitation to our friend's house for a cookout. We arrived to find that the poker game I had left the night before was still going on into it's 17th hour. Not many had remained, but thanks to booze and the promise of money, the chips were still flying.
For Joe, visiting Mike and Karl beats Disneyland. Joe has a ball, playing hockey and playing with action figures. He's one of the guys, although the crowd made him feel a bit uneasy. Everyone enjoyed the jar of BBQ sauce we had whipped up together earlier in the day.
Good eating and good friends. You gotta love the start of summer, no matter what the weather is like.
Joe even scored a goal on Nick, who used to be my main nemesis at the poker table.
