Pool table spelunking.

Thanksgiving.  What a great day.  Spent it with the family, ate a lot of01 good food, had a couple really good heart-to-heart conversations with the next generation, watched “Uncle Buck” and played Clue.  Both my brothers were there, my sister, almost all the nieces and nephews and their kids. 

At one point my older brother was downstairs playing with all the kids, and somehow a little02 soccer ball, a little bit smaller than a pool ball, got lost inside the pool table.  The first any of us upstairs heard of it, my older brother had my younger03 brother’s 8 year old completely inside the table, crawling around looking for the soccer ball.  My 6 year old grand-nephew was trying to climb in the other side of the table to help.  It was hilarious.  I don’t think they ever got the ball,  but at least nobody got stuck in there.

All in all an excellent day, as any time with my family is.  I love you guys, wouldn’t trade any of you for anything.

Families are great, aren't they?

Yes they are. Don't know where I'd be without mine.

And fortunately, this spelunking story has a much happier ending than the one in Provo had yesterday.....

No kidding. That incident in Provo was tragic, I can't even imagine what it is like for the family going through this, especially during this family oriented season.
For details, here's the URL to the Channel 5 news on it:

That was a lot of fun. We didn't loose the soccer ball, its still in the pool table. Thanks for the pictures.

Wow, that was a bit difficult to watch. I can only imagine what it would have been like to watch the tragedy unfold hour after hour. Thanks for providing the link Max.
