Last Friday I went to the boxing matches at Grand Casino Hinckley. Showtime Boxing televised the last two bouts....which, in my opinion, were the worse fights of the evening. Here's a link to a story about the card. It includes some good pictures of the action. Ex #2 got to talk to one of the combatants (Tim Taggert) after his fight. This was Tim's second pro fight and I've gotten to see both of them! (Ex #2 faced Tim a couple of years ago in a tough man competition, so it's fun for me to watch Tim's progress.)
#2 also got to talk to "Jungle Boy" Zach Walters. JB wasn't on the card, but was there supporting Tim. JB has a bout for a WBC regional title later this month. Finger crossed that I'll be able to make it to that card also.

Instead of driving home and then going past the casino to get to ex #1's on Saturday, we stayed over. This is where my head hurting came in. Didn't want to wake #2 up Saturday morning so I was walking in the dark and ran into a wall in the hotel room. Once the stars cleared, I ended up with a nice bruise on my forehead. My forehead is still tender as I type this. (Yes, I'm a bit of a klutz!)

Did manage to get some stitching done this week.....

This is the February Top Tie from Pine Mountain Designs. Was a quick stitch, but I really like how it looks. This is also my February kit finish toward my 2008 goals.

This is helping out a friend finish off a 12 days of Christmas round robin. I chose the maids a milking design.

More updates.
The stats for the first night of darts were loaded...I'm starting the winter/spring season with a 16.61 PPD average - ranked #3 in our league (right behind one of the other members of our team).
First Weight Watchers at work weigh in was yesterday. Down 3 pounds!

Think that's it for now.
