Magoo and I headed out to the outdoor hockey game this afternoon into the lovely sunshine...

Thanks to a parking pass (and my handicapped tag)we parked right outside the door! This might seem insignificant to most, but this is quite literally the closest I have ever parked to the stadium in over thirty years.


I celebrated the parking spot for a good fifteen minutes before Magoo told me we had to get out of the car.

Once out of the car, we went to the Snite Museum of Art to visit with my friend Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh is one of those people that you can not see for a little while, and then when you do see him, it's like you just saw him yesterday.  He is, quite possibly, the most interesting man I have ever met...interested and knowledgeable about so many different things. I learn something new and have a good laugh every time I see him.

We got our hot dogs and headed in to find our seats...
Not bad, but Rich was convinced that we could meander over a few sections to get a better view.

So we did.

The Irish didn't win, unfortunately, but it was a lot of fun to go to the stadium for a hockey game.

On our way out of the stadium I spied someone from my very very distant past and said hello and caught up with him for a few minutes, and then it was back to the golden parking spot for the short ride home.

Rich did tease me, though, since he said that I batted my eyelashes and chattered like a circus monkey so much with both Kavanaugh and Ryan that I must be utterly exhausted.

What can I say?

The old girl's still got it after all!

Now it's on to a little stitching before bed, Dearies. I hope your day was equally as wonderful! Come tell me all about it!


  1. What a fun day. And OF COURSE you've still got it!

    Sydney, Australia

  2. Coo-ee What a parking find indeed (I would have happy danced my butt off!) I am curious though, if the rink is in the middle of the stadium, how do you see? Can ya tell I'm not a sporting lady! Ha! You looked to have a lovely day & let Rich tease, he's just lucky that you chose him lol xx

  3. The view was actually not spectacular, Christine, but the video board made up for it! I think it was more about the atmosphere of being outside and in ND stadium!

  4. What a fun day you had, Coni! Interesting concept with the hockey rink set up in the middle of the stadium. Glad you had a nice day for it!

  5. Fun!! Glad you guys had a fun day :)
