Long weekend

As I said in my last post, the NCAA men's and women's tennis tournament is currently in Athens. I've been going every day. As someone who has played tennis all her life, I can appreciate the way these college students play since I'll never be able to play that way! It's been hot out there watching -- it was in the 90's all day yesterday. But, it is tiring sitting there for four or five hours at a stretch. Last night going on about the fourth hour of watching the tennis I realized my brain was so tired that I couldn't follow what was going on and I couldn't keep track of the score. I was looking at the scoreboard but it didn't make sense to me. I had to ask my husband which numbers I needed to look at.....sad -- very sad -- for me.

That would be upsetting. Well, you went and showing up is half the battle won.

I am glad you got to enjoy most of the tennis. I'd be 'out of it' too if I sat in the hot sun for hours. I'm not much of a 'sun worshiper' so I admire your dedication to watching these college kids play.
