July 29 - For most of the last four days I've been secreted at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando competing in the National Scrabble Championship. Twenty-eight exciting games in four days - what could be better? Winning a few more would help. After 25 games, my record is a poor 9-16. I'll write a comprehensive report tomorrow, but until then, check www.photoblog.com/dadlak for some pictures and stories.
I'm a 50ish husband and father (that's my beautiful almost-17-year old daughter in the pic) living in Baton Rouge, LA and recently retired from a chemical company. Among my interests are sports (especially baseball), photography, Scrabble, trivia, travel, traffic safety, and eating!
