No Doppler, Just Deflation

Wayne Mahar's deck celebration was last night but he never brought out his cat, Doppler. Instead, the Sudanese men, Faye, and others had to celebrate the incredible sainthood of Carl with the mascot of the Syracuse Crunch. We also got to win items (I got a whammy - which means I lost). Others won savings bonds and tickets to water parks.

I have to say, they were a little skimpy on the food. Wegmans catered the whole thing and although they served chicken, it was more like hummingbird meat. Not very much.

They also served penne pasta with sliced tomatoes and potato chips. That was all.

There was also a wheel to win Wegmans t-shirts and pop soda. The guys all won at that game, too. Nope, not me. More whammies.

I convinced Akech he needed to bounce in the giant castle because it was a lot of fun. It was one of those giant, inflated rubber things. He got in, jumped high and even flipped once.

When he went to flip again, however, he flipped the entire castle over and it ended up deflating. He was trapped inside and he landed on the pavement. Not a pretty seen and his worse fear was that Wayne Mahar filmed the entire thing for the six o'clock news.

Nope. Wayne was pulling ticket numbers from a box.

Doppler wasn't a part of the karma (nor food, really). What was good is the support we were able to show to Carl for his outstanding volunteer work with so many Sudanese people of Syracuse.
