Bad Refereeing And Good Visit.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

With most of our holiday celebrations finished we are really starting to get back to normal. Kathy spent the first few hours tossing and turning before finally falling asleep. I layed down and next looked at the clock at 2:00 & 2:01 & on & on. I got up for short bit and returned to bed by 3:00 only to stare at the ceiling until 3:30 when I once again got up. After having a Sleepy Time Tea and a regular strength Tylenol I finally started feeling tired by 6:00 when I returned to bed again and slept in until nearly 8:00 this morning. 
Tyler pinned with the puck by a couple of Coed players.
After finishing breakfast we only had a slight bit of time to do what morning reading we hadn’t done already before driving over to our daughter Karen’s. Tyler was playing another hockey game for the Hospice Tournament this morning at the New Belle River Arena. Good friends Peter and Denise drove all the way from Kitchener to watch the game and to visit with Karen. Somehow the roads were clear all the way but they’ll be spending the night due to a freezing rain storm our area is supposed to get to this afternoon.

When this game started Tyler’s team was on their best hockey behavior because this was a Coed team from Tecumseh. That turned into a laugh because most of the girls on that team played dirtier than any of the boy’s games I’ve ever watched. One got a penalty for holding Tyler’s protective face shield. This team was good but there were a number of people in the stands including myself that complained about the referee’s calls. The game ended with the Coed team winning but there was a complaint lodged with the league about the referee showing favoritism to that team. 
Tyler's team didn't do to well in this game.
When we left the arena the sidewalks were already slick from the freezing rain. After dropping Karen and Tyler at their home we headed back to the apartment. Remember our leftover fish and chips from last evening? Well it sure tasted great for lunch today and was more than filling.

Kathy needed to have a Snap this afternoon to make up for her lack of sleep last night. I worked on printing the last of our Blogger Contact Cards on the PC while reading additional blogs on one laptop and partially writing this blog post on the other.

Karen invited us over for Homemade Lasagna for supper at 5:30. This also afforded us additional time to visit with Peter and Denise at supper. An hour later we all piled into two vehicles to return to the New Belle River Arena for the playoff stage of the Hospice Tournament. The temperature never broke the freeze mark today and with 40 MPH wind gusts it truly felt like winter had arrived making it a two hands on the wheel drive.

This time however the game was being played on the A-Pad against one of the team’s normal rivals however the loss from this morning seemed to drag Tyler’s team down. Finally with words of encouragement from the coach between periods and cheering from the stands Tyler’s team came back from a deficit to win the game 3 to 2. This means there is at least another playoff game but we’ll have to miss it tomorrow due to a previous engagement. Peter and Denise will be driving back to Kitchener during daylight hours immediately after that game. 

On the way home the temp finally rose just above the freezing mark and the winds slowed slightly. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Superb thought. While a sensible cost for work done legitimately may appear to be costly at to begin with, on the off chance that you look nearer, you will see that what you're paying for is quite more mind boggling than essentially abstaining from composing an article all alone.
