Sending Out My Thursday Rundown (along with our wedding invites)

Good evening and hello! Hope the week has treated you well thus far but if it hasn’t, don’t worry, the Thursday Rundown is here. It is time for me to rattle off five topics…

Evening Entertainment – As soon as I finish this, Sidney and I are off to the theatre to watch the Coastal Carolina University production of “Pride and Prejudice.” One of my students in our #CCUSocialMedia Student Advisory group is in a starring role as Mr. Darcy and I want to be sure to support him. A couple other students who I regularly interact with on campus also have roles in the play. Although I don’t know the first thing about “Pride and Prejudice,” I am excited to be entertained and watch our CCU talent shine.

Back to the Links – I have started to once again work on my golf game. With spring here and the endless options in Myrtle Beach to enjoy the sport, I have spent time trying to break in my new clubs. I started lessons again, this time at our course here at Coastal Carolina (Hackler Golf  Course) and I have devoted my weekend mornings to the driving range. The whole goal is to become literate and somewhat respectable when it comes to golf.

The Irony – Of course the evening I write about not missing cable at all, the Villanova Wildcats and North Carolina Tar Heels play in one of the best national championships ever. Yep, I totally missed out on Nova’s epic three-point buzzer beater. As I followed the madness on Twitter I did feel a bit left out that I didn’t get to see the ending of the game. However, the blow was softened to a degree as I was watching an entertaining Australian film called “Sucker.” Take a look at it on Netflix.

Favor For My Dad – I documented it pretty thoroughly on my social media channels but I guess a mention on my blog wouldn’t hurt. When my dad visited me in Myrtle Beach he noticed some old time military planes in a park area on the side of the road near where I live. We didn’t get to check it out but he never forgot about those planes once he went back to Spokane. Over the past couple months, he has asked me to make a trip to the area and take a couple photos so that he could show them to a veteran he works with (my dad works for the VA Hospital). Well, I made that trip earlier this week. The Market Common area in Myrtle Beach used to be an air force base and the city has done its best to honor the past as the plane park serves as a perfect example. I took plenty of photos and streamed a Facebook Live video for my dad. He was very pleased.

I went out and took these photos of the planes that commemorate the old Myrtle Beach Air Force Base.

Wedding Update #26 – The other day, Sidney handed me the bag full of wedding invitations she had recently stuffed into envelopes. I took that bag full of invites and carefully handed it over to the lady at the post office to send out. In the next couple of days, people will start receiving the request from Sidney’s parents to attend our big day! Also, yesterday, Sidney received a call from Zale’s informing her that my wedding ring has arrived (we had to order it). It just keeps getting more and more real.
