When: November 12, 2011
I immediately realized I messed up at home by leaving the Halloween Candy bowl on the stove within reach of the dogs. They have been increasingly annoying in their old age lately - getting into any food they can reach in the kitchen. This is oddly a very new behavior in my increasingly senile dogs.
Got to Ed's a bit past 9am. We stopped at McDonalds to get some greasy sammiches for the road, but some stupid woman in the double drive-thru line almost crashed into us in her hurry to get in front of us in the line after placing her order. The staff confused the order; we got her 2 inedible Egg McMuffins while she got our food. We drove back and got our orders correct, but I hope this ruined the McMuffin lady's day.
Ed had directions, but we were not paying attention and soon passed up the exit we were supposed to get off at. We ended up taking a bit longer to get there, and stopped off in Urbana, Ohio to get lunch (thinking that John would only have finger food at his house). We stopped at KFC, and I unfortunately ordered the Popcorn Chicken that was not very good and way too expensive for what it was...lesson learned.
We got lost again trying to find John's house - luckily Ed called and got directions , otherwise we might still be driving around central Ohio. Ed said he had been here before - I don't know if I should believe that.
Finally arriving, there were a few groups already playing some games, so Ed and I played a quick game of 'Carcassonne' (Ed won).
We finished with 3 hands of 'Saboteur' (won as miner, won as saboteur, lost as miner) and then it was back on the road to Toledo...we did not get lost this time.
