This afternoon I went to some friends to share a Christmas dinner. I have shared many holiday meals with my friends and always enjoy them. Especially as I have watched their boys grow up over the years. I have helped coach both of them in soccer and gone to many concerts and other activities.
I even played a couple games of pool. I haven’t held a pool cue for years, but at least made a few good shots. I beat my friend Gordon, but then Kevin beat me. I almost lost right away by pocketing the eight ball, and for most of the game it was teetering on the edge of the pocket as seen above.
We also watched Monday Night Football with Oakland playing against Philadelphia. I am not a big Raider fan, but the Eagles have an interesting player. His name is Bryan Braman. He is not closely related, but our Braman ancestors did live close to each other back in the mid 1700’s. Perhaps there is a connection.
After the game I headed home and took a seven mile walk. I needed to burn off a few calories.
