Last night was the March Erie Club meeting and we played Jukebox bingo. They had made up different bingo games with song names rather than numbers and played the songs instead of drawing numbers. You didn't have to guess the song name because it was on the screen together with the lyrics.

Still sky high from the Eagles win. Yesterday we went to the Putt N'Play in the village of Fenney. It's an 18 hole putting course on real grass with par 2, 3 and 4s (I think). Most holes are very long with serious dog-legs and plenty of elevation changes.
