Friday was a good day and the last day of my vacation. I started out with a coffee with an old friend from grade 7/8, we chatted and caught up. It was a good visit for sure and we are supposed to take the dogs for a walk today, well, my brother in law’s dogs and her dog. Should be good as the day is supposed to be beautiful.
I didn’t do a lot yesterday afternoon. I did stop and get a sub at Sub’s Plus and it was amazing. I ordered a club sub, they used at least 6 slices of bacon and the turkey was real turkey, not that processed crap.
I had a nice nap in the afternoon, there’s a surprise. I headed to Duff’s, it was a smaller group than I had originally planned so there were only 4 of us, but it was a good time. Another friend from grade 7/8 was there, he and I shared a large (12 slice pizza) and 20 wings and we ate almost all of it which I was amazed by. The pizza had pineapple, ham and hot peppers and it was amazing. I got medium saucy wings. Duff’s has not changed their recipes in the 25 years they’ve been around. Alberta could learn a thing or two about making pizza and wings, but I have given up all hope on ever finding good pizza in Alberta. I have found good wings, but nothing compares to Duff’s. Oh well.
I watched the Yankees / Astros game last night. The only runs scored in the game were in the first inning. Verlander settled down after the first, but the damage was done and the normally potent offence of the Astros was silent last evening. The final was 4-1 and the series returns to Houston tonight, no rest since there was a rained out game. I am unsure who’s starting for Houston tonight, but, I am hoping it’s Cole. Even on short rest, he’s a better pitcher than 99% of the pitchers in the league. Knowing the doofus of a Manager that Houston has though, he won’t start him. Hope it’s wrapped up tonight and then the Astros will have a few days of rest before the World Series starts.
I would have initially guessed that whatever AL team made it to the World Series would walk away with the title, but, seeing how well the National played against St. Louis, I think it will be a better series than I initially thought. I still take the AL, either the Astros or the Yankees over the Nationals.
On tap for today is breakfast with a political friend and that’s happening pretty soon then a visit with another friend before I head to Hamilton for dinner at the Keg. Tomorrow is the Bills game and following that is Endless Shrimp at Red Lobster. Should be a good weekend, all in all.
I am looking forward to getting home, I am sure the IT Conference will zoom by and Thursday will be here before I know it. It’s been a mostly good visit but I am anxious to get back to Alberta.
