A few months back Jillian promised me she was going to stop playing frisbee until the wedding. Then Sheila called.
Sheila currently lives in Spain. She was planning to be back for just one week, which included the weekend of the Gettysburg home tournament. She wanted Jillian to play frisbee. There's no way to understand the Sheila-Jillian frisbee relationship. You really need to see (and hear) it. Jillian invited some friends of her from the UVA Hydras to come play.
David and I enjoy having people around. We decided we'd show off our kitchen skills. I cooked some Vodka Sauce Pasta. We even had side dishes.
Like any good frisbee team, most players had nicknames. So it was Ducky and Devo that came to play with Jillian's team. Having two people in the house named Devo was rather confusing at first, but since I had my nickname back when she was still in Middle School, I won. For the weekend she became Devo II.
On a side note, David got a brithday present from his mother. It was a gigantic watch. We half-joked that he could guide ships into the harbor with that thing.
After making breakfast for everyone, I went up to Gettysburg to watch the games. During the last game, Jillian tried to get a disc but her mark ripped and twisted it away. Jillian dislocated her shoulder. Since this is a regular occurance, I shot a picture.
While rolling around on the ground, Jillian actually managed to get it back in the socket, just moments after this picture. She was helped up and sat out the rest of the game. Afterward, Ducky made Jilian a sling.
We all went to a brief picnic where we got a few hot dogs and then drove back to Frederick. Ducky and Devo II took a shower, Jillian and I went to the Immediate Care Center. Fortuantely, the X-ray was good, so we just went home with Jillian in a sling.
We got dinner, and the ladies returned to Gettysburg the next day for Day 2. Jillian, even though she had the opportunity to mark another player in a sling, didn't play at all. Sheila and Friends (the official team name) won the tournament and captured a bubble trophy (I'm still not sure what that is).
Although Dave cooked up a 10lb Ham Dinner, Ducky and Devo II needed to get back to Charlottesville. So after stopping back in Frederick to pick up their stuff, they were on their way.
David and I have a lot of ham left over.
Jillian's arm is starting to feel better, so we should be ok for the wedding. But no frisbee is allowed at the rehersal dinner.
