On the Run of Late

It's been a bit humid, but not too hot here lately. Been running around the neighborhood in recent days, tuning up for soccer refereeing assignments this weekend. Last weekend, I had some Midwest Regional League (MRL) under-15 girls matches on the Illinois side. I worked two games on Saturday in Columbia's Oerter Park, and three on Sunday at Waterloo Senior High School, which I had never been to before. The games generally went fine, although I did cramp up a bit in my last game on Sunday. This weekend, I have arranged for a maintenance assessment on one of my matches. Wish me well.

Last Monday (10 Oct.), with Mom's help, I had my hair dyed, using Just for Men. It covered over the vast majority of gray in my hair, with just a bit of gray on the sides. It came out real well and I'm happy with it. That night, I was at the Mehlville High Class of 1982 Reunion planning meeting at Crusoe's in Oakville. Laura (Bryant) Muehlhauser, a classmate who's a hair stylist, said the dye job looks natural. I do appreciate her expert opinion on hair matters. At the meeting, we discussed several possible venues for the reunion, and should nail that down with a date at our next meeting in early November. Stay tuned.

No good news on the job search, though. I went to a Yellow-Tie networking happy hour at West County Nissan in Ballwin Tuesday night. It was quite nice, and i did meet a couple of people at their first Yellow-Tie event. Time will tell if any of these contacts made that night will pan out for me.

I'm off to the Missouri Aviation Historical Society meeting in Clayton tonight after dinner at home. The group has a business meeting, followed by the general meeting.

Go Cardinals! They play the Brewers tonight in game 4 of the National League Championship Series, leading 2 games to 1 in the best-of-7.
