Had a very nice visit with Jill’s brother’s family in Carroll yesterday and this morning. I had a rare Saturday off; it was nice to spend it with family.
Lots of excitement at their house. Video games, ping pong, air hockey, more video games — I felt like I was in junior high again. 🙂
A special thanks to Kevin and his family for hosting, and for the delicious meal Saturday evening.
Stopped at the Pizza Ranch in Jefferson on the way home. One of the best things about living in Iowa is eating at the Pizza Ranch. 🙂
My department at work moved from one area of the building to another last week.
I had worked in the same area since I graduating from college, so lots of blood, sweat, tears and memories. I’m sure there will be lots of good memories in our new area, too.
I must admit that having a new area to work makes going to the office a little more exciting. Kind of like when you were a kid and you moved your bedroom furniture around.
Caught the end of the Laker game on ABC this afternoon. They beat an excellent Oklahoma City team on the road. I think the Lakers have won four or five games in a row.
UCLA’s best win of the season came Saturday against Arizona. The Bruins dismantled the No. 10 Wildcats at Pauley Pavilion in Westwood. From the Associated Press game story:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — UCLA struggled all season to put two solid halves together. The Bruins waited until their last game at historic Pauley Pavilion to do it, helped by a last basket that John Wooden surely had an assist.
Reeves Nelson had a career-high 27 points and 16 rebounds, and the Bruins defeated No. 10 Arizona 71-49 on Saturday to tie the Wildcats for first place in the Pac-10 in the last men’s game played in the arena before it closes for renovation.
Fittingly, the late Wooden’s great-grandson Tyler Trapani, a walk-on who rides the Bruins’ bench, got in the game and scored their final basket.
