1/13 Beata won!!!!!!

Well, the headline says it all. After coming in a heartbreaking second place in nearly every poker tournament she entered, tonight Beata took first prize. I came in second and got 30% of the money. She won a whopping 70%. Good on her.

She was ecstatic, and had every right to be.

We had such a good time, and so did our friends. Rob was crazy about the sloppy joes I made. Must be something about the comfort food of one's childhood. Some of the other guys showed a real appreciation for it too.

Such a nice group of friends. I will hate to leave.

(Supposed to be 78 degrees tomorrow. That depresses Beata, who is still praying for snow. She said that next Thursday we're supposed to get snow showers. I'll be in LA, but sure hope she gets her wish.)

Mom, thank you for headlines! :-) I am soooooo happy to FINALLY be the one to win and not the second place person. It feels awesome! :-)
Yep--snow should be here anytime now. I am just ignoring the fact that we are all wearing t-shirts and sweating our butts off since it's so warm outside.

Today will be a gorgeous day, and it will be fun to go to dinner at Judy's house....

Well, it seems as though you've taken our warm weather. Last night we got down to 26 degrees... cold for us. It is only supposed to get to a high of about 50. Next we are expecting only a high in the 60's. See you soon mom.

Wow, the weather is crazy, Jill. Hope it's nice out there for my visit.

You'd be good because you're an actor. :)
