My Weekend

Post  Doc Watson on Mon May 23, 2011 11:18 am

On friday night I went to the football by train with Mrs Watson . We had a good time. My team lost by 2 p;oints but played well.
On the train trip there and back I read 420 pages of a book "Count To Ten " by Karen Rose.
It was a reading copy I had been given by a publisher.
On Saturday I did some gardening in the morning. During the afternoon I went in a 3 k cross country race . I was slower than I hoped.
Then I went with my daughter to a family serrvice at our local church.
Sunday morning I attended a combined service at the Anglican Church. It has no electrity and it was very dark.
In the afternoon I did more gardening despite light rain falling.
In the evening we went out to dinner to farewell some friends who are going to England for 3 months.

I was going to add to this fascinating post every monday morning .
However with all the other drama going on here I feel it is now not important.
So I will not detail how I went to the football again , went running again , went to chuch again etc and had quality time with my family. Very Happy Very Happy

You are wrong Doc, it is important to every single one of us (or at least it should be).

Now, a more detailed update please.... Very Happy

Sorry to have taken so long as I know this thread is the monday highlight for many of you . Wink .
On friday I went to coin club I did not by anything.
Saturday the venue for Cross Country was in the forest near my home.
So Mrs Doc and I marked the course.
The run went ok only 2 runners had complaints about the course.
Afterward some people came back to our place , and we had some wine.
Late in the evening we had to go and pick up the youngeet Doc Watson child from a party.
On Sunday IO was already going to do the children's talk at church , however the vicar phoned in sick , so I ended up doing the whole service . Every one thought I did well.
I did a little gardening on Sunday afternoon while listening to a broadcast of the football.

lol no it involves measuring the course and putting arrows, turn around points bunting across possible places where people could make wrong turns and kilometre indicators , witches hats at various points and removing things like branches which may trip up runners.

Talk about burning the candle through the middle with a blowtorch. Hopefully, he slows down a bit during the week.

Sorry to have kept you waiting for this , but it was a 3 day weekend in most areas of Australia and yesterday was busy.
Fridaynight my son came up and he helped install the gps on mrs. Doc's new car.
Saturday I went to the carboot sale at the church. In the afternoon I went on a cross country run . I came second in the 3 kilometre run .
Saturday evening we went to a play it was about the end of the war , but not very good , then we had soime coffee with old friends we had met at the theatre .
Sunday after church , my son and I went down to the football . Our team won again.
Molnday I spent quietly at home Very Happy

The 150th anniversaries of everything Civil-War related are coming up between now and the next few years.

Today the town of Vienna re-enacted The Battle of Vienna, the first-in-the-world military attack on a train:



There were 271 federal troops on the train, attacked by 700 confederates including cavalry. The Union got the worst of it, which emboldened the South to launch the first battle of Manasses (Bull Run), a major victory for the South, and one of the reasons the war got drug out for so long.

The re-enactment was a bit scaled down--they needed 1,000 re-enactors, but they only had a few dozen--and the cavalry only had 3 horses.

As you know, the Washington and Old Dominion Railroad is now a bike path, but we still have the caboose of the old train:



And we still have the train station:



The Virginians like to wear these T-shirts to these events:
