Hopefully Junior will find the time to post the final results from his last-minute tourney that he threw yesterday. I finished 9th and was relatively pleased with the afternoon (I think, however, that there is a reason that "Ned" rhymes with "Ted").
We threw a big housewarming party on Saturday night - about 50 people showed up in all and everyone had a great time. In fact, my wife had such a great time that she went to bed relatively quickly after everyone left and I stayed up with my aunt (who was visiting for the weekend) and we cleaned the house until after 2 o'clock in the morning.
When Mrs Johnnymac woke up yesterday morning, she wandered into the kitchen to get coffee and was very pleased that the house was already clean and thus wasn't going to be something that she was going to have to worry about for the rest of the day. I then took the opportunity to casually mention that Mark was playing poker later and asked if she would mind if I went to play. She was very happy to let me go and wasn't even grumbling when I got home 6 hours later. She did however call me "Eddie Haskell" as a sort of shorthand description of my "deviousness" (personally I would call it cleverness), but that was the extent of her protest. I had a plan and it worked.
I think I am getting this marriage thing figured out.
