Boru and the X Prize

Boru couldn't keep his eyes off of SpaceShipOne as it attempted it's historic flight. He obviously is a fan of space flight.

Skull's 40th

Delinquents and SigEp's (of numerous generations) converged on Skull's place to help celebrate his 40th birthday. The traditional backyard BBQ took place on a beautiful day and was only interupted once when the local klaxons went off...apparently calling the volunteer firemen to action in order to help extingiush the candles on Skull's various birthday cakes.

Susan and Donny's Wedding

Our friends Susan and Donny (finally) got married this weekend. Susan and Donny's courtship has been intertwined with Jen and Tom for most of their relationship. Donny was actually in the group of friends with Jennifer on the night she and Tom met. Donny and Susan rekindled their relationship at Rob and Jeanette's wedding...where Tom was a last minute invite only because he proposed to Jennifer on time for the mailing.

They are off in Hawaii now. We send them all our best!

Go Bucks!

People in Ohio are crazy. Crazy about Ohio State football. It is simply amazing. Marsha and Matt took Tom and Jen to see an Ohio State football game. There was talk of "tailgating", but I don't where they expected to do this...cause with so many people there was no place to park, let alone camp out.

We couldn't get tickets to see the game from inside the stadium, so we talked about watching from one of the neighborhood bars. Matt kept mumbling something about watching from Marsha's cousin's apartment, but this didn't seem like too much fun.

Well, it turns out that Marsha's cousin Jimmy has the drywall concession for Ohio State...and has done quite well for himself. The apartment is actually something like a private "Hooters". The place is just amazing. He has taken a one bedroom apartment, mounted 5 or 6 TV's from the ceiling, added an industrial strength beer cooler and woohoo! Jimmy wasn't even in the aprtment when we arrived. But 60 of his close friends were. Jimmy was on the 50 yard line at the game. He's now one of my favorite people!

And as much as they love Ohio State, they really despise Michigan State...

On Friday evening, several of Jennifer and Marsha's friends from college arrived for a backyard BBQ. Beth and Terry (and their daughters Millie and Maddie) along with Teresa and Jason were there. Everyone had a ball...and lots of hamburgers and hotdogs.


Friday morning, the Frightening Foursome hit the linx at the Marysville Golf Course. It was Marsha's first time out (and only Jennifer's second), but they both did very well. Jennifer's new putter worked did Marsha's magical fairway tees.

Harvard on the Hocking

Jen and Marsha met while attending Ohio Univeristy in beautiful Athens, Ohio. They were sorority (technically, fraternity) sisters at Phi Mu. Here they are in front of their house.

Upon returning to Columbus, our host's daughter Emily had soccer practice. And besides, Marsha was the coach!
