Growing up, my Grandfather had three pieces of advice that echoed in my ears from the time I was 5 years old until his death 2 years ago.
1. Marry a good Catholic girl.
2. Join the Knights of Columbus.
3. Drive on the right hand side of the road.
Two of these wishes, I have completely ignored. The third, i try to do my best with. However, the second is the subject of which this blog addresses. Grandpa was very proud to be a fourth degree Knight and wanted dearly for his children and grandchildren to be involved with and support the organization.
Well, i found my way to fulfill this wish.... sort of.
The first friday of every month at 7:30pm, the local Knights of Columbus (1912 Winnie) hosts a Texas Holdem poker tournament. It is $25 to enter and pizza and beer (tips encouraged) is supplied for free. So September 3rd, if you're not busy (and not scared), I'll see you at the Knights of Columbus!
