Tennis, anyone - Part 2 (the photographic evidence)

August 19th, 2010 (09:42 pm)

where i am: home alone (with 6 dogs)
how i am: amused
accompanied by: crickets

None of these shots are great but I wanted to post them here for posterity's sake if nothing else. I'm busy as hell with RL so I'm adding very little commentary. Hubby found out midday yesterday that he was working waaaaaay up north as of today and right through the weekend so I may or may not see him before I head to Vancouver on Monday and his absence over the next couple of days has thrown a wrench in my pre-travel plans. I'm trying not to let my brain stress me out and just chill... but I was so counting on him being around to look after home and dogs in the last few days as I readied myself for this week long trip.

Anyway, I figure I'd best upload these tonight, otherwise it'll never happen. They're a tad biased toward Rafa and Roger ;). Hope you enjoy!

    Rafa and his flag                                                 Warming up

   Looking hot up                                       Rafa's serve 

    Berdych's serve                      Roger's serve (that's Mirka, his wife, in the background in front of green shirt guy)

    More Roger.

I love that both Roger and Rafa are choosing to wear pink this year. And their choices of pink are just so "them".

     Djokovic's serve                                    2 giddily satisfied tennis fans - me and my RL pal, Tami :)

Oh cool! I have computer-and I am giddy! LOL.
Nice pics! I used to watch tennis so much when I was younger and was all caught up in both mens and women's matches. Now I'm not sure who is who-lol. But still-loved these pics! And seeing you!!! :P But ;((( I hope everything works out for the before time of your trip.
*Hugs you*

I hope everything works out for the before time of your trip.

Thanks! Hubby being out of town is far from tragic but I'd really counted on having this weekend to prepare (which included some shopping for me and for gifts for the friends I'll be staying with) and, now with him away, with 6 dogs, just booting out the door to run errands is such a production when I'm solo. With hubby home, I don't have to think twice about such things. I'm a big girl though so will survive. Boy was I over-thinking and stressing big time last night and for a short time at the end of my work day today.

I kind of lost my interest in tennis during the Pete Sampras era (no offense to him) but have been back into it again for the last 5 years or so. This is the second time I've seen matches live, and likely my last but, BOY did Tami and I have a blast *g*

Dean happy and smiling

I understand-but it's always nice knowing there's another person to help out so you can do those errands. :) It's why I appreciate my neighbor(as I have no hubby just yet-lol). But I do hope it works out for you!
Ack. Pete Sampras was never on my list either. Blergh. LOL. I need to get back into the groove though! I've never been to a match? Unless you count the ones my classmates were in-heee! But I would love it! I hope that you can go again sometime-it sounds wonderful! And sharing these trips with a good friend is even more awesome!

I would guess that tennis is a lot like any other pro sport, it's far more fun when you're there, live? I honestly have never watched much beyond Andre' Agassi, but if I see it on, I'll watch it more now than I used to.

OUCh for hubby being gone! That's no fun. And I forget you're heading out so much before we are. Hope things come together easily for you!

One week! *g* Though we're getting in fairly late Thursday night, since the train doesn't arrive until almost 11 p.m.

You know? I actually almost prefer the comfort of watched the matches on TV in my home with perhaps the extremely exciting Federer match as the exception. I could elaborate on why when we get together but I'm sure we'll have plenty more to talk about when we get together ;)

Monday is coming way too fast!!! Esp. with Wayne out of town now. Even dealing with the puppy breeder... I've just emailed to tell him he won't be able to talk to us both together over the weekend. No huge deal... none of this is. But it's still a royal PITA ::sigh::

I can't wait to see you both!!!!!
