This past weekend: family

Went to Colorado this weekend, which afforded me an opportunity to see some family who lives there.  I really enjoyed my time with the Kraffts - I hadn't realized how very long it's been since I've seen them.  Marilyn and John were at Dad's funeral, but that was so much a blur that I'm not convinced it counts.  Prior to that, I hadn't seen them or their daughter Nina in about 11 years.  There were a couple times that they came into town since then - but town was LA, and I was in Turlock at the time, so it didn't work out for me seeing them.

We spent some time catching up, and some time playing games (although Nina was packing and travelling for the gaming part - she's involved in a competition that I found very cool, but couldn't do justice in describing if I tried, so I won't bother).  Really enjoyed Oh Hell, and Pounce was very fun too - except Jen probably won't enjoy it, so I'm not likely to play it very often ever again.  Oh well.  Jen came in the day after I did, so it worked out that I could call and have her bring Fluxx with her, so we got to introduce them to that as well.  Much fun had by all.

No major conclusions there, but I'm very glad I got to spend some time with them.  Hopefully I'll have some more time available next time I head out that way - which could easily be early September.  That'll depend on finances more than anything else.  We'll have to see....
