Shuffleboard refs and players
I sat in the stands and sketched while Mom played shuffleboard with her team. Mom is the team captain and when she plays, she has her "game face" on! Everyone playing at this level takes things very seriously. 

Many people asked me who was the model for the pot-bellied referee. I never said for sure, but I enjoyed the speculation and sucking in of tummies that followed. 

The score was tied at the end of the game, so Mom and her opponent played two more frames. On the final shot, Mom lost. Aaaargh! "Game face" became "frustrated face."

I am so fortunate to have time with my mom. Believe me, I relish every moment!
