Check back later to see if we bought a timeshare...or if the sales people just wasted their time. Hmmm....wonder which it will be?
Well that was an easy $82. We got $50 cash, and two Imax tickets that would have cost $16 a piece. In and out in just under an hour! So now, Ruth and I have a Saturday night date planned!
The 3 different people who tried to sell us the timeshare now know all about couchsurfing! I don't think the timeshare people like the couchsurfing philosophy very much!
We left with the goods, and went for a walk along the beach. Still a bit chilly out, but it's a beautiful sunny day.
Whiskey and Kevin...Whiskey LOVES walking on the beach!
After the walk on the beach, we had some lunch and then drove up to a park we had seen on the way to the timeshare place. Took Whiskey for another walk around a pond, and then headed over to the baseball facility. Their game didn't start until 3:00pm, but we had some major cleaning that needed to be done on Sherman, and I had a squealing fan belt that needed to be tightened. So we got there about 1:00pm, and did some work for a couple of hours. But it was nice out, so we had the door open while we were working.
The game started at 3:00pm, and the boys got off to a good start. Score was 7-1 for us by the end of the second inning. It was COLD though. Sure, the sun was shining, and the actual temperature was about 50F (10C), but it was windy. We were bundled up with as many clothes as we had on last night when it was colder, but without any wind. Anyhow, the boys played a good game and won it 9-4. They play again at 6:30pm tonight, and we're bringing the sleeping bags to wrap around us!
Right now we're nice and toasty inside Sherman while Ruth has the oven on making chicken enchiladas. It is SO NICE having your home right there with you when you're travelling!
The boys won tonights game as well! They built up a good lead, and by the 6th inning it was 8-3. But the other team got some runs in, and at the bottom of the 9th it was 8-6 with a runner on base. But we closed the deal, and won it 8-6.
It wasn't as cold as we thought it was going to be because the wind totally died down. Still chilly, but we were all wrapped up, so we were fairly comfortable. I'm sure we'll need the sleeping bags for tomorrows 9am game as well!
