It’s just yours truly and our dog Austin this weekend at home. My wife and our youngest daughter are in Nashville looking at Vanderbilt Law School and checking out the city. No keg party but I did buy some beer for the games on Saturday. We need a Michigan loss and for Louisville not to win it all in order to take the top prize in my wife’s office pool, go Syracuse.
On a sad note we had to put our oldest dog Max down this week as he was becoming too aggressive. He was a good dog and will be missed.
Here are a few links to some great weekend financial reading.
