curling

Yesterday was the annual curling bonspiel for Joe's work. Every year Joe's dad (a retired chef) comes down and cooks dinner for 60 crazy curlers.

Yesterday went off without a hitch.

The icemaker re-surfaced the ice.



Our friend Larry played a great game.



Everyone seemed to have a great time.



I even discovered that Joe DOES know how to wash dishes!!!



And our chef enjoyed a beer once everyone had been fed.



And for the record, I don't curl. I have curled in the past but it's slippery and scary and ever since I had my elbow replaced I'm afraid to do it. It was a super-fun day though and I look forward to next year.

Looks like a great meal and a fun day!

I lived in Montreal 20 years ago and my husband signed us up for a curling league. "Sure! Sounds like fun," said the I'll-try-anything-twenty-something Bonnie. Holy cow! I could NOT get the hang of it and looked like such a spaz!

You mean that sneaky Joe does dishes? Busted!

Sounds like a great day! I'm with you, I don't have a bionic elbow, but I want my feet planted firmly on the ground!! Thankyouverymuch.

For 60 crazy curlers AND their devoted wives :) The things y'all in the North come up with to entertain yourselves indoors! LOL

i'm not sure what curling is, but it looks like brooms on ice. i have a hard enough time with broom-on-kitchen floor. no ice for me either - even with my own elbow.

it looks like it was fun to watch, though.
