Roller Derby Anyone?

After feeling terrible last weekend and having that extend all through the week, I was determined to ignore any more feelings of illness and have some fun. Still felt awful at times but made good memories in the process.....

Friday night we walked down into Boeblingen. There was an Italian fest. I thought more Italians lived in this area.... maybe they were at the Canstatter Wasen? There was a band, it wasn't bad. The funniest part was the lead singer speaking in Italian about all the different pronounciations of Boeblingen.
Self serve candy. Friday would have been the day to get some, no dirty fingers yet!
Does anyone know anything about the pots in the sky? I mean why?
Yes, we went to the Roller Derby! You Know Who happens to know several of the players. They asked if he would go to the show on Saturday and he being the nice guy he is said yes. I got to go too.

These women are tough. The first time I fell, much less got slammed or run over, I would be so out of there. They on the other hand kept it up for and hour and a half, and had a great time. I didn't understand roller derby before going and I admit there is still a lot I don't get, but when they make points or nearly kill someone, it is really fun to scream and whistle.

Unfortunately, our team lost. Some of the fans were upset but the team seemed fine, like they'd just attended a party where you knock people over to show them how much you like them being there.......



I ended my weekend with a bike ride. I made the mistake of telling the DB that Mary jokingly said I should go on one. He kept up with

until I broke down and went just to have peace again. So next time Mary says something funny I'm not telling him.
