Happy Independence Day!

I imagine most have big plans filled with BBQs, fun, & fireworks. Don’t blow anything too big up. Be very careful with those Sparkler bombs. Yes entertaining, but also very dangerous. My favorite is the annual “Saturn” firework that tips over shooting 24 whistling balls of fire in the direction of the crowd instead of into the air. I have experienced this once and have heard of it happening several times.

Settlers of Catan the other day turned out to be lots of fun. It took us 7 hours to play 2 games. Congrats to Troy on winning both games.

The Council of Catan (our little democracy that votes on rules decisions) has overwhelmingly agreed to not play with “interbuild.” It is much less chaotic (and fun to watch John role 7’s and lose all his cards right before he is going to win the game) when you are only allowed to build on your turn. It also gives you the time you need to play strategically.

On Sunday night, I played again with two of my brothers. My older brother had to water his lawn, so we set up a card table in the driveway and played for the two hours. I won that one, but by the end, it was getting dark, cold, late, and the bugs were getting us. I think all three of us were just glad the game ended when it did.

    Hey, I played Settlers of Cataan this weekend too! It’s such a fun game, but I have yet to have won (the friends I play with play all the time, whereas I only play when I visit them). :)We should get together and play before you head for Chicago!

    Vicky, Yeah! we should totally get together & play. I should be e-mailing you sometime in the next few days so we can plan at time to hang out.
