Night of Literature

Wet weekend. Went to Anna's "Night of Literature" at her school. All the sophomores, juniors, and seniors presented multi-media skits about Pride & Prejudice, Frankenstein, and two other classics. Some of the kids produced elaborate videos, and the whole thing was entertaining. Anna went out afterwards, and spent the night at her friends. Later I watched the end of the Friday night Braves game. First time ever that O'Flaherty and Kimbrel gave up homers in the same game. Great pitching by Minor and Hudson this weekend, and Medlin kept them in the game last Thursday.

Worked most of Saturday on getting out the spring clothes, but by the end of the weekend the mess was bigger than when I had started. Drove Matthew to see his math tutor and stopped by Kroger. Now that we have Netflix, Anna and I are going to watch 24 all the way through. Watched Season One Episode One on Saturday. Knowing the Braves game was rained out, I also watched some of the Nationals game on Fox. Ceil was cleaning downstairs all day, and she gave our dog Barney a bath. Mary Clayton's younger brother Thomas came over Saturday night. Ceil cooked some good burgers, and we played the game Scattergories and watched Parental Guidance: a real good movie filmed in Atlanta. A key part of the movie involved Bobby Thompson's Shot Heard Round the World. It was after 11:30 before I drove Thomas over to his grandparents, in the pouring down rain.

With only three more weeks before the North Point middle school students get promoted to high school, Matthew wanted to go see the old gang again…even though he hasn't been all year. I saw David Hurt and several other old friends. Good sermon by Andy Stanley on how being a follower of Christ sometimes comes with a cost. Back home I did laundry and worked on the winter clothes while watching the Braves beat the Mets. Watched Silver Linings Playbook and This Is 40. Silver Linings was great, but This is 40 was too foul, and drug on and on.

8 pm: C, M, & I ate at Moes. Took advantage of the Cinco de Mayo special.
9 pm: M applied for a job at Publix. Saw Beau Bock in the self checkout line.
10 pm: Drove through the rain to pick up Anna at the Hargreaves.
