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.
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.
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.
