Final Four


We stayed up until the last click of the game clock (yawn..)  So excited. Couldn't sleep!  I think it was 2:15 a.m. when I turned off the light.  I told Dick we're too old to play championship basketball :)  My neck was really stiff the next morning - I know it was caused by the tension of the game!
