Ohio Friends

Sunday night, we enjoyed the company of Dori's step cousin Sharon and her family. Dori grew up in Cincinnati, and Sharon's family is from Hamilton. They're in Tennessee this week because their son Max's team is playing in baseball tournament.

We ate pizza and ice cream sundaes, then threw the ball and played "horse" in basketball. The girls played the guys in basketball, and we received some nice insight about Oxford, where Vanderbilt is playing next month against Miami of Ohio. Sharon told me she reads the blog ... Hello, Sharon!

While Will and I read in bed that night, I asked him if he had a good time with 14-year-old Max. He said playing with Max "was like having a big brother." Yep, he had a good time, and so did we.

Jim, Oxford OH is a nice area. My college roommate was from Okeana, about five miles south of Oxford. We recruited runners from Hamilton, Seven Mile and places near.

Hey, Chuck. I'm looking forward to seeing Oxford. Maybe the Dores can take care of business.
