Slow over the hump

It hasn’t been the most exicting of Wednesdays. Then again, not having an exciting day doesn’t mean a bad day, which is the case here.

I had some work to get done for Russell. Not much, so I was able to jump in the shower and leave Overland Park a little after 11. When I got to Buffalo Wild Wings at 11:40, I became Tori’s lone customer at the bar. There have been a few more customers at the bar, plus a couple of guys playing Golden Tee, and a group of three who ate and drank from 1:30 to 4:30. One guy and the woman were playing trivia, and then switched to poker after I won four rounds of Countdown. 

Raymie has been here all day, which is wonderful. Stephanie has taken over for Tori behind the bar, and Rue is in the dining room. I don’t think it’s going to be a very late night, but I figure until at least 8:30. I want to play Buzztime’s SIX, and there’s no new Law and Order: SVU on until next Wednesday, when I figure to be in Russell, since I have an appointment the next afternoon with Crista Geyer in Hays. 

Dawn and her husband have joined us for happy hour, which makes for a happier hour.

Wonder where the sun went today. It feels more like mid-November than mid-March, but at least it isn’t snowing. I’ve seen worse snow later in March, and sometimes in April. 

I remember the March 27, 2009 storm which dumped alomst two feet near Pratt, 90 miles due south of Russell on US 281. I was in Overland Park that weekend and I got stuck on Saturday. I had a lot of snow to shovel the next day before driving west. 

Tomorrow is the true start of March Madness. Buffalo Wild Wings is supposed to be opening at 10 a.m. tomorrow and Friday. Friday it has to open early because Kansas plays at 11:15 a.m., and I’m sure they will get swamped early. I don’t know if I’m coming up that early, although if I don’t, I could be waiting, even for a seat at the bar. I’m not sure. I guess I had better come tomororw because LIsa and Liz are working, and then Brittany works Friday. Something to think about. 

About David

I am a sportswriter for a group of weekly newspapers in small towns across northern Kansas. I grew up in New Orleans, went to college at LSU and wandered in the wilderness until Hurricane Katrina finally put me on the path to my current job.
