3 Gorillas Terrorize Carcassonne

3 Gorillas Terrorize Carcassonne

For our Let's Start Talking program this year we had 4 ladies from Pittsburg State University.  Unfortunately Holly went back to America a little early so she wasn't able to take part in the game of Carcassonne (at least I didn't refer to her as a Gorilla... though technically she is one). Oh I almost forgot to mention, Adam also joined us.  He came in dead last, right behind me (David) :-(

When Christ Ascends to Heaven, We Play Softball

When Christ Ascends to Heaven, We Play Softball

When Christ ascends to heaven, we play softball (Thursday was Christ's Ascension Day).  Last Thursday it was Hildesheim versus Peine... versus teenagers, I think.  The team I was on came in last but we did better in points than we did last year. The other team had huge bulky men who could hit the ball out of the park.  I don't care that we lost because it was still a lot of fun.  Also, the weather was nice.
