John invited the students over for a poker night... You see, he bartered with one of the super talented students who makes BEAUTIFUL poker tables which we are now the proud owners of, in exchange for a fabulous handmade flightsuit bag (Flybagz) for his wife.
So not only was he itchin' to have people over to utilize the barbecue island and fire pit in the back, but also to break in the new table! John extended the invitation to the other Instructor Pilots (IP's) from the squadron as well as, of course letting our neighbor, Wild Bill and old friend Split in on it! The turn out was.... well.. great! We had a good crowd which lead to a smooth evening. A little too smooth.. which led to a rough night for me and an even rougher next day. Oy. That was dumb.
Let me let you in on a tip: DON'T... I repeat, DO NOT, although it sounds so inviting and tempting, get into a hot tub when you have had a few too many drinks. Just drink some water and go to bed.
