Stuffing my face!

I’m stuffed. Stuffed worse than a goose. But it was well worth it.

Just got back to Norton’s gymnasium after eating at Los Canteros with Peggy Cox and Hayli Bozarth. Hayli wasn’t supposed to return from Boise until Sunday, but she came in a couple of days early, which was a bonus for me.

The food was outstanding. I had a shrimp chimichanga, which took Peggy and Hayli by surprise, but I reminded them I’m from south Louisiana, where shrimping for many is not just a hobby, it’s their livelihood.

There’s a Mexican restaurant in Russell on Wichita Avenue, but my parents and I don’t go. We went once and said never again. There have been health code violations galore. Besides, my mother makes better enchiladas.

The girls varsity game should start around 6:15, with the boys varsity to follow. I should be back at the Sleep Inn by 9:45 for some real sleeping.

Peggy’s husband, Clark, is officiating the girls junior varsity game with Corey Roy, the principal of the elementary school in Norton. I’m wondering who the varsity officials will be. I’m expecting not to see anyone I’ve seen at Smith Center, Russell or Victoria, simply because it’s a long way out here. Probably get a crew out of Colby or nearby.

This is my last event for 2014. I won’t have anything until January 6, when Russell hosts Ellsworth in basketball.
