After a long, tedious, boring, tiring and frustratingly quiet week, Nat has finally broken loose. He’s been looking forward to this day for oh so many years and although he didn’t show it, I could see him grinning from ear to ear. His son-in-law, Tom, has taken him to a Toronto Maple Leafs‘ hockey game tonight. They left our house at 2:00 pm and headed into Mississauga for a nice supper and then off to Toronto for the game. I’ve been excited for him myself and hope they get to see a great game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and even maybe the odd little scuffle between a couple of players.
The Leafs haven’t been playing that well of late and have failed to win quite a few games, despite the fact they started off the new season like gang busters – winning three in a row. None too shabby for a bunch of new guys!! So I’m really hoping they can pull a win out of their helmets tonight, especially since Tampa Bay is really looking for a win too.
Before taking off for the rest of the day Nat brought up the Christmas Tree so I could decorate it while he was gone, but I ended up doing it before he left, so I could spend some time in the office with a couple of the projects I’ve been working on. I’m also sitting here doing this posting wondering what in hell I’m going to eat for supper. I’ve long gotten out of the habit of making a meal for one. I’ll make a sandwich and some fries and think about Nat and Tom in that nice restaurant having their steak or pasta dinners. Hope it’s good boys!!!
As for the results of the game – well, this posting is to be continued ….
