Wish we could have been there!

While Shirley and I are in Texas visiting the family, petanque continues back in the Carolinas.  Many thanks to Fred Marchant for hosting and to Bo Edwards and Sue Wien for the photos!

Our last Carolina's play for 2014

Shirley and I got our last chance to play in the Carolinas on Sunday at Miller Park in Winston-Salem.  We'll be heading out to Texas for the holiday season to visit Lynda, Rob, and Marin, Maeve, and Myles.

At the Edwards

Kirk and Bo had some friends over for socializing and petanque on Saturday, and they were kind enough to include us.  It rained-- sometimes very hard-- all the way on our trip up the mountain to Spruce Pine.  But then, just as we arrived, the sun started to peek out just a little.  We started play and hoped for the best.  There were some more showers and a misty, cold day was our fate.

BUT, we had FUN!  Thanks, Kirk and Bo.

Wednesday weekly play

It was a little cool and damp, but we had six players.  Bob, Joseph, Rom, Bek, Shirley and I turned out to play at Miller Park.

It was a beautiful late November afternoon at Miller Park.  We had a medium sized turnout of 13 players.  It's sometimes tough for people to make time for everything during the holiday season.  Those of us able to make it had a great afternoon.

We were particularly glad to have Joe and Catherine join us for the first time in a while.
