and a bright choice for a pillowcase and a baby quilt.
Friday afternoon and all day Saturday Pat and I attended the Mid-Atlantic District competition in Reading, Pa. Friday featured quartets and Saturday (starting around 8:30 am!) the choruses. The Virginians did really well and were pleased with their 8th place finish.(Out of 22.) Just a side note, the winners from the district competitions go on to International. And, there are some wild card spots. Rumor has it there is a good likelihood 4 choruses will go to Internationals from MAD. (I know sounds weird but Mid-Atlantic District=MAD.) I haven't been to a competition for years so I was happily surprised to see a large number of younger men singing in both quartets and choruses.
After two days of barbershop harmony I was ready to stay in the hotel and read while Pat watched our USC Trojans finally beat Univ. of Texas instead of attending the last MAD event. The next morning we headed home stopping to pick up Kona at Jenny's house. I hit the couch to read but was soon sleeping!
I'll let my goal list from last week speak for itself. (I think I just heard it say UGH!)
