I GOT NOTHING
I GOT NOTHING
OMG, it is Wednesday and I have no post for Friday. My brain is on hold. I have a Cranky Opinion post for Saturday that will probably piss a lot of people off. I should be able to slap together a Stupid Headline Sunday post by…Sunday, and I can always find an old post to re-run on Monday. By then Mrs. Cranky should do something to give me more material.
In the meantime, I have nothing for Friday. I could do something on politics, but I am trying like heck to stay away from that. I could post on my golf playing, but that is of interest to only a very select group…like maybe my brother and then nobody.
I think my mind is just on this weekend. This weekend is our annual Fraternity reunion weekend. This tradition began about 18(?) years ago. It started as a one-day event and now is a Friday night, all day Saturday, and brunch on Sunday event. The first few years we only talked about the good old days in school and the wives were kind of left out. The last bunch of years we reminisce about previous reunions and the wives are all part of it.
It is always a great time.
This year it will be up the road from me in N J at Captain Don’s (formally Squeak’s) estate. There will be a fun dinner on Friday and most of us will be staying at a nearby hotel…we used to call it “shacking up” seems much more fun calling it that…anyway…
Saturday will be a lot of whatever, maybe golf, maybe shopping, maybe a trip to the city, maybe just hanging out. Then it will be dinner (barbeque) at Captain Don’s followed by a local band playing music from our college days. After we will “shack up” (Ooooh) again at the hotel, and finish the next day with brunch at Captain Don’s.
There will be pictures, laughs, memories and maybe a drink or two. The next couple to host will be announced, (usually the couple who fails to take a step back fast enough) the fraternity flag will be passed and we will have another year’s reunion to look forward to.
Maybe I will take pictures for a post.
As I said a bunch of posts ago, friends who are old are great, old friends, ones you have known for a long time are great, but old-old friends are the best!
