Rey launched for Kansas City just before the butt-crack of noon. He plans on visiting the American Negro League Baseball Museum there and then attending a soccer match. We don’t expect him back until the wee hours of the morning. [He made it back.]
Anne and I really didn’t do anything on Saturday. Rey showed Anne his picture collection in the morning and I ran the errands in the afternoon. We couldn’t even muster a bike ride in the Park. We’ve both been working pretty hard this week, so maybe we just needed a rest day.
I spent most of the day playing the video game Civilization, version IV to be specific. I use to play version III quite addictively, but then version IV came out and I had to try it. This was two desktops ago, so when I tried to play version IV on what I had at the time it really didn’t work. That old computer just couldn’t hack it. So three years ago I bought a new desktop. I loaded up version IV and tried it again. Although this newer machine made the game at least playable, it really didn’t make it enjoyable. So even though I had bought that desktop in order to play Civilization IV, I never really did. I eventually started blogging instead.
Last month that second desktop crapped out and I bought a newer machine. Saturday I loaded Civilization IV on this new machine and started playing it. Rey left for Kansas City. About three o’clock Anne and I decided to blow off going biking for the day. I ran the errands and then returned to game some more. Anne needed dinner so I took a second break for that. Eventually, about nine I got tired of the game. I am going to win, it is just a matter of me civilizing the competing powers.
