Lazy Days
Sunday, November 04, 2012      3 comments

Yesterday was a day of vegging out in front of the TV and watching football, football, football. It was the first Saturday since mid-August when we did not have at least five youth football games, maybe a softball game, a soccer game and maybe ... Read more
Gout Sucks!
Saturday, November 03, 2012      2 comments

I have been pestered by gout for about the past twenty years. Usually when I feel the first twinges, a super dose of Ibuprophen will stave off the attack. Last Saturday, as I arrived at the pre-game tailgate, I felt the first twinges and went ... Read more
Make Today a Great Day!
Friday, November 02, 2012      2 comments

Can, Will, Do
Monday, October 29, 2012      1 comments

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do." "Accentuate the positive. Eliminate the negative. Don't mess with Mr. In Between" "Whether you think you can or you think you can't,... Read more
It Really Doesn't Matter!
Sunday, October 28, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday's football games was atrocious! And that is a compliment to the team's performance. We did well except for offense, defense, and special teams. That means the managers managed to get the water out on to the field during time outs. ... Read more
Thoughts on a Saturday.
Saturday, October 27, 2012      8 comments

My usual sources for inspirational thoughts take Saturdays off so I have to go back into my treasure chest of pithy statements. John Wayne said "Life is hard. It's a whole lot harder if you're stupid!" We used to have a radio personal... Read more

One... One tree can start a forest, One smile can begin a friendship, One hand can lift a soul, One word can frame the goal, One candle can wipe out darkness, One laugh can conquer gloom, One hope can raise our spirits, And...... Read more
