Rainy day

09 Jan

The weatherman was right.  Turning colder, sleet, rain.  Is this really southern Texas?  Are we really just a stone’s throw away from the Mexican border?  Supposed to be light this for the entire weekend.

So I decided to check out the shuffleboard courts (indoor) this morning.  My neighbor showed up there too.  Turns out there were 4 “new” people, including me.  And it takes four people, just like in curling, to have a game.  A couple of the guys had played a couple of times before.  But none of us really fully understood the scoring.  We finished and found out we had not handled the scoring right.  We, in effect, had only played half of the normal game.  Oh well.  We learned by our mistake.

The courts are open 4-11 pm daily (just like the table tennis area and the pool room and the gym).  As well there are various league activities and “scramble” games a couple of times a week.

Anyway, it was a fun way to spend the morning.

    I have played shuffleboard before. Many, many years ago. I had forgotten all about it. Memories……..
