So, we rented a car, at least until Dec 3rd when we fly out to Germany for our little vacation. They didn’t have the small size car, so up graded us to a rather luxurious one. Great leg room!
Paul’s mantra as he drives: “I have full insurance. I have full insurance…”
Friday is Scrabble Club, so we won’t get to do fun driving until Saturday! Problem is that we can think of several destinations, but only have the one day to do it in.
Maybe I should explain Scrabble Club. There is a group of people who meet once per month on a Friday and play Scrabble all day. Paul is the Scrabble player, I just sit around reading or entertaining myself as best I can. We’ve only been once (missed the last two due to illness). He played only half the day – four games and won three of them. So, come Friday, game on!
Once a month our neighbor gets a group from the college together to go to Quiz Night at one of the bars in town. There are four categories of questions of 10 each and a picture round with 10 pictures that you have to identify. The picture round this time was Star Trek characters. The MC jokingly told us we had to put down the character name, actor’s name and the episode. I did manage to write down the character’s full names and the actor’s full names. There were insufficient clues for the episodes, which is good because I cannot name the episodes. The sheet is now proudly displayed on our refrigerator. Anyway, our group did well in the other rounds as well and actually won the game. One of the questions in the “entertainment” round was what is the name of Mr. Data’s cat. I knew the answer to that one, too. See, all those hours watching Star Trek paid off.
