Apparently the two classes I've been assigned both deal with criminal acts and contracts - at least this first week. Weird. I am actually done for the week. Tomorrow Roland and I are going to the Riddle Library to enter a Scrabble tournament. Roland has every ounce of confidence that I can win - even though he has beaten me several times.
It's a luck of the draw. When all we draw is one point letters, it doesn't matter how great or long the word, it has only been worth 7-14 points at most. The longer words give the other players more options of places to go instead of a crammed up board filled with small words because they happen to be worth more points
In addition to the Myrtle Creek Library annex, the fund raisers have included a wine walk which I did not participate in. The latest is with selling tickets to a spaghetti dinner that takes place on Monday evening. It sounds like a great deal of tickets have been sold. I hope it is profitable for those involved. P/R and marketing is not my thing. Roland should be more involved as it is his.
To each his own, I guess. Don't much care for army sized crowds, but do enjoy playing games. I would rather an Upwords tournament than Scrabble. Perhaps we will be able to have Upwords tournaments after we break the Riddlers of Scrabble. LOL
When I think of Scrabble, I remember a sister from my mission who attended the Woodbridge ward. She LOVED playing Scrabble. She and her family had moved to Missoula Montana before I had finished my mission. I have not heard from them for quite some time. It appears that she and her husband now live close to Tillamook, Oregon. Wow. Would have been nice to have known that sooner. I'll put a letter in the mailbox today - or perhaps I should just call the landline number I have. Not much of a phone talker. Would be nice to get in touch again.
