Stacey's Indiana Birthday

We went to Daleville Tuesday. Turned the water on and the heat up then relaxed the rest of the day. Linda made several trips to visit with her Mom, Stacey went most of the times and I went Friday. We visited about two and a half hours with Reba. It was good to see her doing so well.
Saturday was Stacey's Birthday. Linda K & Imon came over to the Daleville house and they gave her a birthday card. Gay & Uncle Bub stopped and we all drove to Denny's for breakfast. While we were waiting on our food, Brent called with Julie & Kyle chiming in with Happy Birthday wishes on speaker phone. After breakfast we stopped and bought an old stereo at the "ReSale" store. Linda & Stacey visited with Nana once more. At 5 PM we left for the Pacer game in Indy. The Garmin GPS took us right to our regular parking lot, we walked in, they scanned our tickets, then the girls headed to the gift shop. I made a pit stop and headed to the seats. IMO - Great seats! Stacey and Linda joined me just before tip off with popcorn and drinks. The Pacers jumped out to a 10 point lead, but immediately lost it and were down 8-9 points. Tough defense and extreme quickness on both teams.
 
 
At halftime, the game was tied, 45 all. Stacey was happy the Pacers had caught back up to the Celtics. Each team had a tough defensive player guarding the other teams' star. So, the teams were battling on the boards for those second shots. Good game, tied several times.
 
 
 
Victor Olidepo won the game for the Pacers. He hit 4 free throws and a three pointer. The 3 point shot came while they were 2 points behind the Celtics and only three and a half seconds left in the game. Boston tried to toss the ball in from the center court line, but Victor stole the incoming pass. Pacers won 102-101. The place went wild from the bottom to the top of the Field House with a roar that filled the place after Victor hit that 3 pointer till a couple minutes after the final horn. We loved it! We left the game, walking with the crowd and it was still buzzing, everyone talking about how it ended. Back towards Daleville, stopping at Steak n Shake for sandwiches.
Sunday morning, we set the clocks back 1 hour, then packed up and headed to King Fish for lunch on the patio. Then on home to the farm.
