Happy Tuesday everyone. Time for T over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and also today is Election Day here in the US. The kids are off from school in my district today and we have a teacher work day. (Back on primary voting day some of you asked about why the kids were off, and to answer that it's because New Hampshire has a law that makes it legal to carry concealed weapons on school grounds,where the polls to vote are. Since the school is responsible for student safety, and not knowing who will be entering the building to vote, the district has made the decision to have us to do one of contractual work days and give the kids the day off. )
So this past weekend my husband and I headed off to our college alma mater. We like to follow our college ice hockey team, and my husband had a birthday last week. I got him tickets and booked a hotel room so we could go to the game and have a night away.
I totally forgot to take any photos during the game, which was just as well as our team lost by a score of 0-1. Neither team looked great. Oh well, a game is always better in person and we still had fun. I just hope the team improve as the season goes on.
But the excitement of our weekend was the windstorm that blew through late Saturday afternoon. Around 4:30/16:30 the power went out at the hotel, so we decided to grab an early dinner and went into town.
There was no power in town either, but the only place with generators was where we were headed anyhow.
Pat's Pizza was about the only pizza place in town back when I was a young co-ed, and one of the best things about this restaurant is that the only change since those days are some new tvs. It is nice to go back after 30+ years and have something remain the same.
Now I can't say Pat's is a very classy place, but it is a good place for pizza and beer. And it's got history!
And since they were the only place with some electricity, they were pretty crowded.
We got a table next to a beer sign which was powered on, so we had pretty good light.
And we had a bowl of popcorn along with our beer while we waited for our pizza.
OK, not my best photo. I took off my hockey jersey for fear I would spill pizza on it.
When I got to Pats I always order the same pizza. Just because I can.
It was all yummy.
I'm also linking up some art to Create Art Every Day.
This is day 6 and I am showing you the calendar from the front of my drawing journal.
That's all for me.
Thanks for visiting. And happy T day.
