Entering the Memorial Day Weekend

Rather quiet now as I write this. Starting the holiday weekend that is the unoffical start of summer. I know what I have planned. I'm 4th official on tomorrow night's PDL match between St. Louis and Des Moines in Cottleville. Should be interesting, to say the least. Sunday morning, I have two men's games to officiate at Jefferson Barracks Park, then I can enjoy the rest of the Holiday weekend.
Nothing much happening. I got my last paycheck from the Census Bureau this past week, and that was for when I turned in my gear. Helped my parents celebrate their birthdays recently -- Dad's 85th on Thu., 14 May and Mom's 69th on Mon., 18 May. (Yes, that's 14 years and four days apart.) Last Saturday afternoon, I helped run a Make & Take event at the HobbyTown USA shop in Arnold, Mo. Myself and three IPMS Gateway colleagues faciliated this event, as four kids and two mothers worked on model kits, which they got to take home after they put them together. Nice way to promote our hobby and club, and for the shop to promote itself. It was real fun, and the tools I brought came in handly. I also got to plug our Invitational this September.
Saturday night, I joined two of my WAWWA friends at a trivia night in Richmond Heights, Missouri. It was put on the Richmond Heights Chamber of Commerce. Our table -- eight people total -- had the night's highest score, getting 94 of 100 questions right. Each person in our table won $20. I also won a side contest that night, which netted me a $50 restaurant gift certificate and four tickets to the Missouri Botanical Garden. Quite a nice night.
I did read of a job opening this morning in my e-mail, for a managing editor position. I'll check this out and ask around my network for info on this posting.
