Singin' in the Rain...
If you're my friend on FaceBook, you know I skipped out early on the football game last night. Why? We settled into our seats and enjoyed watching the warm up. As soon as the National Anthem was over, the sprinkles began. Three plays into the start of the game, the heavens opened up.

Did we have rain gear? No. Dad had left his in the truck; mine was forgotten back at the house.

30 minutes into the game, the on-again-off-again rain turned into a downpour. I was huddled under my jacket; W had his hoodie up and was enjoying himself with a few other kids without rain gear; my poor father sat there with nothing to protect him. Finally, he looked at me and said, "I think I've reached my maximum wetness. How about you?"

I nodded, and grabbed W. We left, went to Dad's truck, and turned on the heat. Of course, by the time we arrived home, it had stopped raining! Dad dropped us off and returned to his motel room. W and I stripped off our wet things and he settled in front of the TV to watch Racing Stripes. I put on my pj's and loaded our wet stuff into the dryer. Around 10, my spouse walked in the door! He'd gotten rained out at work, so he came on home.

When K arrived, he was thrilled to see his dad, and explained the rain hadn't let up until the middle of the 2nd quarter. His team had gotten stomped, but he said if the ball hadn't been quite so slippery, they might have done better. And no, he didn't get to play last night, so not much was missed.

Grandpa will be back next weekend, but I'll be headed north again. Maybe the game on Sept 4th will be better?

The last couple times I bought tickets for a Marlins baseball game for our special work day at the ballgame, we've gotten horrendous rain. I'm afraid to buy the tickets anymore.

I think my daughter's rec and travel softball games are more fun and exciting to watch than the pro games anyway. The pros are so good they get up, get out, and repeat the process. It's boring.

I also liked highschool football better than pro. Of course hubby loves both.
