3.35 - The One with May 2-4

Another May long weekend in the books...I'm still recovering...hence the reason I'm blogging on Wednesday...here's what went down...

  • a great round of 18 at Timber Ridge Golf Club in Brighton. It's on of Canada's top 100 public courses. I shot a 91...not that bad
  • on the way there I drove backwards on the 401
  • the reason why was because the traffic came to a dead stop and we were 1.5 km past the last on ramp...so I followed a bunch of cars who backed up onto the on-ramp. Fun stuff
  • worked the midnight shifts all weekend...
  • went to Toronto FC vs DC United at BMO Field on Saturday afternoon. If you have a chance get to a game. It's something else...the fans are incredible
  • led worship on Sunday morning...just before the first service, an older couple decided to make their point known that they didn't like us. Right after we did our sound check the lady said, "You're drummer NEEDS lessons." and her husband backed her up by exclaiming, "He's playing too loud!"
  • funny thing is...Ryan was playing the drums and he's been teaching music for about 4 years now...and the reason is was loud...was because there was only about 20 people in the auditorium which seats about 300.
  • isn't that great encouragement?
  • we put on a brave face and went on to sing through the service...every time I looked at the couple they put their head down trying to hide from me...
  • Sunday was also my mom's 50th birthday! Happy Birthday mom!!
  • we went to Toronto for a Chinese Banquet for the Birthday...mmmmmm food
it was quite a weekend...more highs than lows...still not over what happened on Sunday morning but I'm sure it'll be addressed soon enough. This is the same couple that said one time that we don't play 'real' music because we use chord charts and not sheet music...

thanks for reading...you just earned a Schrute Buck

I know, I know - you would think I'd be more curious about the driving backwards on the 401, but I dont get why there were only 20 people in an auditorium that seats 300???

ps - yes, i read your blog :D

it was before the service started...we were still doing our sound check...that's why there was only about 20 people in there...

I read your blog every so often too...it's been awhile though
