The few, the proud, the petanquers!

Today's tools of the trade!

Well, it was about 35F today at game time in Winston-Salem, and Shirley and I had a holiday season commitment (Joneses extended-family Christmas luncheon) in Chesnee, SC, so, we couldn't be there.  With the cold and the threat of rain/freezing rain in the forecast for Miller Park, we didn't really expect anyone to show up for Sunday play anyway.

But they did!  Rebekah (today's intrepid photographer; thus, absent from the photos), Nelson, and Gail turned out to play.  They got in a few practice games despite the somewhat inclement weather.  Nice job of proving your dedication to the game, guys!  Wish we could have been there.

Thanks for posting, Gary! We missed seeing you, Shirley, and the others today. Neither rain, sleet, or snow can keep us away--We need all the practice we can get!
