Easter Eve 2016

This past week saw some nice weather and chilly weather, all within the space of 24 hours. I guess Spring was having second thoughts about getting going.

Work at the branch has been good, with plenty of business due to some schools on spring break and people traveling ahead of Easter. I flexed out early on Tuesday (22 March), as I worked this morning.

Tuesday night found me at Calvary Presbyterian Church (http://calvarypresbyterianchurch.org/) for this month's meeting--one week later than usual due to the previous week's presidential primary election--of IPMS/Gateway (http://www.ipms-gateway.com/). We had a nice turnout for the meeting, considering the date change, with the Model of the Month "Beauty Contest" and a presentation on scratch-building drag race cars. I brought in my now completed model of the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen for display.

After a full day of work on Wednesday (23 March), I headed to the Schlafly Tap Room (http://schlafly.com/tap-room/) for a Meet the Team event with Saint Louis FC (http://saintlouisfc.com/landing/index). I picked up my 2016 season ticket member scarf and had a Schlafly beer. I also briefly chatted with a few Saint Louis FC players and head coach Dale Schilly, wishing them all the best in the season, which begins tonight on the road.

My off day Thursday was spent in part with proofreading some website copy for a friend--the copy was for one of her clients. I got it done, noting a few items (mostly capitalization issues) for my friend to look over. That afternoon, I did my 2015 federal and state income taxes, using Turbo Tax software (https://turbotax.intuit.com/).

Last night, I was at the Saint Louis Bread Co. (https://www.panerabread.com/en-us/home.html) in Brentwood, for a Meet and Greet of the STL Movie Buffs Meetup group (http://www.meetup.com/stl-movie-buffs/). I joined two others in the group for a chat about movies have seen or want to see.

At home now after work, but will be going tonight to International Tap Room in Soulard (http://www.internationaltaphouse.com/#!locations/c5ob), to join the St. Louligans (http://stlouligans.com/) at a watch party for Saint Louis FC's season opening match away to Real Monarchs SLC. Home with my mother for Easter tomorrow.
