Score!

It was a SCORE Saturday, on many levels.  🙂

First, we started by going to my middle grandson’s soccer game.  It was going to hit 95 yesterday, so even a game starting at 10:30 am was HOT.  His team is undefeated, and he’s one of the top 2 scorers on his team.  Suddenly, at 9, he’s just GETTING IT when it comes to soccer, so it makes it even more fun to watch.

Sure enough, he scored 2 goals, set up a third goal (got the assist), and had another goal taken away for off-sides.  (it was not.)  They played the other undefeated team, and it was close through 3 periods (they were up 3-2), but J’s team blew it open in the 4th period and ended up winning 7-2.  So much fun!  Here’s my schmoe after the game…

He learned from his grammy the wonderfulness of putting cold water down his neck between periods, and even having cold water poured on top of his head, too.  So I take some credit for one of his goals and the assist.  LOL
His little brother, L, and mom (my younger daughter) had to leave halfway through the game to take L to his ice skating practice.  He’s decided to take up hockey, but at 4, (and living in southern California, LOL)…he’s still just at the ice skating lessons stage.  Here’s a photo she sent over of him:
After the game, we went to In ‘n Out for lunch.  I bet it’s been 6 months since I’ve had them!  Then, because we were so close, we went to Campitelli’s to get some cookies.  Best cookie store in the Los Angeles area.  Officially!  Rick Dees, a top LA Disc Jockey, a LONG time ago, had a contest to see who made the best chocolate chip cookies.  Campitelli’s won.  They only have 2 locations, and refuse to franchise themselves.  So I even bought a tee shirt, because when we move to AZ, I’ll have to have their cookies shipped to me, no more in person buying.  (except if I remember, when we go to visit the kids once or twice a year.)  They are still stellar, after all these years.
See?  J scored, I scored (great food)…just a SCORE! Saturday.  LOL  (plus scoring me getting to see 2 of 3 grandsons!)
Then we came home, and got to see Michigan St. upset win over Michigan.  Of the 2, I’ve always preferred the GREEN Spartans.  So all good.  It was icing on the cake that Oklahoma lost also.  That should help out UCS in the rankings.  🙂  (I’m trying to transfer my loyalties to AZ State, but once a Trojan fan, always a Trojan fan….)
Finally, we saw the original Blade Runner movie, to prep us for the new Ryan Gosling version.  We’d both seen it before, but it’s over 30 years old so we needed a refresher for the brain.  It didn’t hold up quite so good; it was before CGI effects, and it just was so avante garde when it came out; not so much now.  But we are now prepped for Blade Runner 2049.  🙂
That’s it!  How was your Saturday?

    I will never, ever, get enough time for family. It's all the more precious now because of our move to AZ in the future. It's not a hideous distance, but it will make the visits less frequent, for sure. I'm having to put learning skype or Facetime on my schedule. 😉

    Thanks for coming to my blog… We did just get home from an awesome trip to Utah and Arizona… We weren't in 'Zona much –but we definitely love the Page area and also Monument Valley… WOW…… I know you'll love that area when you retire there… I have my list made for the next trip west… I love in TN –where everything is very different. SO–when I go to the desert, I feel like I'm in another world completely….

    Come back anytime.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

    Oh, what a fun day, such a sweet little champion and a great time for all!

    I've only had In and Out once, while visiting San Diego. Delish!!

    I have four grands now that have come from the heavens in just 2 1/2 years. Crash course for sure! But I love every moment with them!

    Have a wonderful week!

    My weekend was wonderful and a long one from last Wednesday. Trip with my son and lots of old friends. We almost left the group to go see BLADE RUNNER 2049 in Imax and I'm kind of sorry we didn't go.
