Labor Day happenings

Well, we got a four day weekend at work for the holiday. Praise the Lord.

Sunday, Mark had a barbeque at his house for about 11 of us. Lots of grilled meat. I ate at least 5 drumsticks along with 2 or 3 sausages. I stuffed myself. It was good to catch up with friends....

Today, I ran over in the morning and woke up my youngest son, Joshua, and we went to Starbucks and then went to my place and played Texas Hold Em for about an hour. Then we went to Chili's for some appetizers. Then we headed up to Mt. Charleston.

We went to the Mt. Charleston Lodge and had dessert. It was packed! It was nice to be in temperatures around 70 degrees but we weren't much in the mood for the mountains, really. We did have a good talk about sexual relations with girls where I told him about my recent victories with celibacy.

We headed back to town and called his younger sister, Serenity. She was having lunch with her niece, Haylie. So they came over for more Texas Hold Em. We played for a couple of hours. Little Haylie is twelve and has the cutest poker face. Serenity bemoaned her travails over her latest boy interest while we proceeded to wipe out her poker chips. I pray for her in regards to relationships with boys.

It's been a fun Labor Day weekend and I got one more day left!

How was your Labor Day?
