Mom called to say that she had called Mike about joining them at the VFW or the Moose for their cookout that afternoon. He accepted. She'll give me a report later. I fear this is a disaster waiting to happen. I hope I'm wrong.
We left for Spring Hope at about 1:00. It was way the hell out, but we arrived in a cute little town, and a huge, lovely home. Michael and Terry's place was beautifully decorated, and the party was fun -- good people and good food.
There was a message from mom that everything had gone great -- like there was never a 10-year gap in talking to each other. I'm surprised, but pleased. I hope it's the beginning of some repair. I need to get back to Jacksonville and see him.
Joe called at about 8:00, and we agreed to meet at Flex at 9:30. After a bit, we got the pool table, and played two or three games of pool, eventually giving it up to Walter and a friend of his.
Patrick was there, and was talking with a friend of his, Mike. We walked up to the, but it was a little awkward in that he (Patrick) didn't hug Joe or anything, just said hi. Eventually, we all ended up talking, and heading over to Legends at about 11:15.
Robert joined us at Legends, and we watched the drag show. That one guy that does Reba performed, and did Reba's latest, I think "Somebody" is the name of it.
