We headed to Kalamazoo this weekend. The original plan was to play games with a friend of mine, but the whole party called in sick. I went anyway, figuring since I had already made plans it behooved me to see the family. Which I did, for the most part. As always, I overloaded, so our six o'clock dinner plans were fast looking like midnight dinner plans, until I cancelled out the visit to my sister's house (which was too bad - I had been hoping to spend some time with the children). So we had a nice dinner with Tammy and George, and ended up playing games anyhow, just in a different location. We got back around three this morning.

Today was supposed to be a trip up to Lansing, as my friend works at the particle accelerator at Michigan State University, and they were having an open house. Unfortunately, the previous day's exertions proved too much for me, and we stayed close to home, doing some shopping for the week and otherwise sticking to the homestead. Overall a more or less uneventful, but entertaining weekend. The possible high point of the weekend would probably be my uncle recounting his experiences as a national guardsman during the 1967 riots in Detroit.

Y'know, I was in Portage on Saturday. I thought to myself 'Self- you should call David. Wouldn't it be funny if he was in the K-Zoo area today? Nah, what are the chances of that!'.

What are the odds? I take it you were enjoying Kalamazoo's many tourist attractions?
