Maybe Basketball is Her Sport

I went to my niece's wedding this weekend. It was nice as weddings go. Weather was gorgeous, it wasn't too long and the food was good.

It was pretty much a cookie cutter wedding and it went smooth.

When it was time, they called all the unmarried girls down front for the bouquet toss.

Well my 9 yr old being of the unshy type jumped out front and snagged the first attempt.

Then she out jumped the much taller girls for the 2nd attempt and pulled it down too.

I had to pull her from the lineup to let some of the more eligible ladies have a chance.

Yea I know, she prolly shouldn't have been out there to start with but they encouraged her. Beware what you ask for.

I prolly oughta be worried when she gets older.

I Finally Made It

This spring I had to work in St Louis. It was a quickie in, work 15 hrs and I was on the plane home by 7:00 AM so I really never saw the light of day, nevertheless more than just a glimpse of the Arch.

Over the last 2 weeks I have been working out of town in Indianapolis and St Louis.

The work went really smooth and we were able to shave 2 full shifts off the job.

That allowed me to fly home on Wednesday. I woke up a bit early so I decided to swing by the Gateway Arch on the way to the airport.

It was totally different than I expected. It was in the middle of a Beautiful green park, no buildings or signs, just the Arch standing majestic in the middle overlooking the river.

I wish I would have had time to ride to the top and also watch the history video but I had to be at the airport by 11:00.

I did get to walk thru the underground museum built under the Arch. The entrance is subsurface and you have to go thru a metal detector to enter.

I will prolly be heading back next spring so I hope to take a ride to the top.

Have any of you ever been there?
