Forgot again

Another day without posting Thursday. I’ve got to get back on the ball.

I didn’t leave Russell until after 11 a.m. yesterday. Probably wasn’t the worst thing, because I dozed off and got my dirty towels, socks and underwear washed, so everything will be clean when I get back to town, except for what I wear in Kansas CIty, of course.

The trip to Kansas City was uneventful. Stopped at Starbucks in Junction City, then made it to the Overland Park Marriott just before 3. At first, they wanted to put me on the ninth floor, but I went back down and requested a room on the top floor, the 11th. They were able to take care of me, but all of the luggage carts were in use. Rather than sit and wait, I just decided to drive the loaded car the 35 minutes north to Buffalo Wild Wings.

Good night at B-Dubs. Liz was not working, but her mother, Nadine, was. I also was very excited to see Braidey Howe, one of my favorite staff members. Didn’t eat too much, but got away with only paying $20–$13 of which were tips. Buzztime was great, and I finished #11 nationally playing SIX.

Haven’t done a thing today. Jack and Kathy are supposed to pick me up at 3 so we can go to the Royals-Indians game tonight. It will be very hot. I haven’t eaten today, and I’m not going to drink pop until later tonight, if at all. Trying not to dehydrate, something i have too much experience with from my many years in the Louisiana sauna.
