It rained this afternoon so I'll have to finish the deck next weekend. I just have a little railing to build, and then install lighting.

We have our championship game for Sunday Ultimate this evening. We won our game easily last Sunday in the semis, but surprisingly The Enemy lost their game! I don't know how good our opposition is because we only played them on the August long weekend and both teams were missing key players. They only lost to The Enemy and us in the regular season, and then beat the The Enemy so they can't be that bad. The weather forecast looks good, it's hot and sticky out now but there's a cold front moving in so hopefully it will be comfortable on the field by game time.

We won our first playoff game in hockey on Thursday. It was my first game in four weeks, and I scored again! I almost had two more goals, but missed the net on both. We finished 4th (out of four teams), and are playing the top team. It's a two game series, with an OT and shootout if we split the games. They are much better than us, and our goalie (who's by far the best player on our team) is out next week, so it's not looking good. But we'll see.

I also went golfing out Thursday afternoon. I had a meeting out in Listowel (over two hours west of Toronto), and so we golfed at Listowel Golf Club. It was just two us, and we played the front nine in 1 hour 20 minutes!! We caught some other players on the back nine, but still finished the round in under 3.5 hours. I shot 92, and was generally consistent.

One of the big old trees on Wayne and Walter's yard has an orange paint marking on it. Heather and I are a bit concerned, we wonder if it means the city's marked it as dangerous and are going to cut it down. There's three big trees that frame the entrance to our street, and the main reason I was interested in the house when I first saw it (after living here there's much more to like, but at first I noticed the trees). A lot of trees in Leslieville are about 100 years old, and then there's a big age gap in trees. On our street fortunately there are a couple 40 - 50 year old trees.
