Brian joined up with a group of guys and they play tennis about twice a week. A couple weekends ago there was a tournament. It was long and the kids and I had fun for the first 4 hours, and then after that…. well, I cracked! That’s a whole other story! Brian did great and even won! He took home a $25 dollar gift certificate to the pro shop. It burned a hole in his pocket and he promptly spent it on a new hat and some wrist bands! Brian’s hoping that Santa thinks he’s been a very good boy this year and brings him a couple of new tennis racquets. We found an awesome sports shop off base, and he was able to “test drive” some racquets. I love the Japanese people. They are such hard workers. When you walk in a store, they literally run all over to serve you and get you what you need. A+ on customer service. Brian was teamed up with a guy named Edgar. Edgar is here without his family, so he has devoted his free time to tennis. They made an excellent team!
