PLACE: New Athens, IL
A fairly quiet Saturday, compared to last week’s with its family reunion. Tonight we went as a family to a friend’s surprise 50th birthday party at a Knights of Columbus hall. The man is a big Dallas Cowboy fan and the hall was decorated with a blue, silver and white theme. These pears were piled in a bowl on the head table. Why pears? I have no idea, but I’m sure there was a good reason for them. One thing that I can’t get over is the fact that it only cost $1.25 for a draft beer in the bar. Sweet action! I think I need to drink there more often.
