Last night, the kids had planned to go skating at the Christian center in Bath. The weather has been so tremendously kind lately, Mark and I figured it would be fun to take the kids, then park the truck and watch the Sabres game via our server (computer) from home. Mark was enjoying the warmer weather so much, he wore a short-sleeved shirt, while I wore a shirt, along with a sweater. NO winter coats!
We dropped the kids off right at seven, then headed towards town. We hurried and grabbed some fast food, then settled down to watch the game.
I was impressed at our location, as the nearest food at our home in the Bristolwood is quite some distance! As we looked out the driver’s side, towards the front, there was a huge travel trailer sales business located up on a high hill.
Directly to the front of the truck was a grocery store. (Boy, how convenient that would be near our house….seems we are always running out of something or other!)
Just a couple hundred feet outside my door was the familiar “Golden Arches”!
I must admit that the quality of these photos is horrible, but that is because I was too lazy to get outside the truck and take them. You can actually see the smears on the windows in some of the photos. The good part of this is that during intermission between periods, Mark and I tried to clean the windows a little. It was hard, though, as 1. it was rainy and very humid, and, 2. with two people and two Scotties inside, we were only adding to the humidity from outside, making it virtually impossible to eliminate the moisture on the glass!
The game was already well into the first period when we tuned in, but the score was tied at 1:1 at the period’s end. Below is our backup goalie, Patrick LaLime. He has been doing a rather impressive job the past few games, after our starting goalie, Ryan Miller, injured his ankle when a player mowed him over a few games ago.
I must admit, my “chair” was so fantastically comfortable, I fell sound asleep during the game, awakening when Mark asked if I was going to REALLY watch the game? Oops! Perhaps I *should* have stayed asleep, as we lost the game. The final score was Ottawa, 6: Buffalo, 3.
The game ended just shortly before we needed to pick up the kids. What fun this was! Sometimes being married to a ‘puter geek can be very entertaining!
