tuesday night all stars holiday banquet (holiday party #13)

The Tuesday Night All-Stars are a group of great guys that play basketball every week. As the president of the woman's auxiliary (and only member) I was invited to attend their Christmas banquet at the Red Key. I stopped in on the way home (the Red Key on the way home - it really is, I can draw you a map if you like) They had a record turnout, and there was no room for me at the table. I stood and chatted with them for a bit, but one of the Red Key rules is no standing in the aisle.

So, instead I plopped down next to the Posh Petals women. Erika and I played with my new iPhone and discovered features that I didn't even know existed. It has Google maps on it. I punched in the address of the corner (52nd and College Ave, Indianapolis) and a map of the intersection popped up. I tapped on the picture of the end of the building and a screen appeared that said "Posh Petals" with their Web site and phone number. I tapped on the phone number and it called Posh Petals.

We entertained ourselves by looking up our houses. It is very Big Brother-ish. You can see the detail of my backyard enough to see the hammock and table. Freaky.

The TNAS guys offered to make room for me, but I did the sensible thing and went home. The next two nights also have two parties on the calender.

When the parties quit you are going to have a bad case of withdrawals. Of course, you'll be so exhausted it'll take a couple of weeks for it to sink in.

As I write this you are soaking in another party. I hope it was a good time. I love Google maps.
