The Phone Call—-Sunday, February 5, 2017

Our grandson called us one evening after basketball practice and once more invited us to his ALL DAY basketball tournament in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.


So early Saturday morning (3:45 a.m.) we woke up, did our chores, ate breakfast and was on the road a quarter after 5!

blades-tournament-015Since it was an all day tournament and Blade played in the first game of the day (8:00 a.m.) we knew we had to get to going.

blades-tournament-020They played three games with the last one ending at five. There were more games after that but he was done at five—they won all their games!

A job well done!

buddiesWe got to meet his buddies

blades-tournament-016We got home late, tired but very happy to be able to watch our grandson and be with the kids and our son-in-law and daughter for the whole day!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. whew! and NEET that you have grand-kids near ’nuff to do this. yes, like almost everyone you and I know with kids, we spent lotsa time watchin’ the sports — & one highlight close to your house: our daughter WON the Delta H.S. cross-country invitational one year down @ Confluence back in ’97. (has it really been TWENTY years?!)

  2. How nice you were able to go! I’m sure it meant a lot to your grandson to have you there. That would be a long day. Were you seated on bleachers? I imagine a day of rest will be in order after that! My granddaughters have no-sleepovers, too! At least, that’s what they should be called! LOL
