A Pink Fire Truck, Basketball, Uncle Lyle, and Golf

What do these 4 things have in common? The ANSWER: Last weekend! One of my ‘Debbie’ friends and her husband along with Gary and I went to the Women’s WSU basketball game where there was a pink fire truck the night before Uncle Lyle came to visit and we watched golf.

You may be asking, “Why blog about such a weekend?” Maybe because it was just fun.

Gary did a very rare thing. He came home early from work on Friday so we could go to Wichita, have supper with friends, and go to the game. The WSU women are very very good. Too bad there was hardly anyone there to watch them. It was “wear pink” night, the reason for the pink fire truck. I’ve never seen a pink fire truck. The firemen all were wearing pink uniforms. It was quite a sight. To say the least, we had a great time.

By noon on Saturday, my 87-year-old uncle Lyle had arrived from Omaha, NE.  He had a bit of a problem finding our house, but with a little help from me on the cell phone, he made it. We again watched lots of basketball. Both KSU men and women won their games, the men beating Baylor by 1 point and the women with a sound win over Texas.

What a time we had with my dad and uncle, both with their unique personalities: talking, watching sports, eating, and just plain enjoying each others company. Need I say more?

Sunday we did not watch basketball, but watched golf instead. It ended with a 45 foot putt in sudden death on the 14th hole. It was so exciting, especially since the young guy with best looking shirt won. All kidding aside, it was a relaxing afternoon, until the last few holes. When I don’t even want to take a bathroom break, you know it has to be good.

Last weekend was a blast. Having Uncle Lyle here, great basketball and golf, and last but not least, the pink fire truck.
