Sick!

December 31, 2018

In watching pro basketball for over fifty years, maybe a handful of times has a young cowboy predicted a Hall of Fame career for a rookie. Well, this kid is 19 and is ‘off the charts’ great…Luka Doncic, if he stays healthy, will be joining Michael, Kareem, Pistol Pete, and Magic when he retires. Have […]

Time for change

December 30, 2018

You know it’s been a slow season for The Broncos when their infrequent post touchdown celebrations are the only part of the game that has entertainment value. Now that the search is on for a coach who demands excellence, maybe they can rework the quarterback contract as well. The current QB was awarded $36 million […]

I believe that if you don’t derive a deep sense of purpose from what you do, if you don’t come radiantly alive several times a day, if you don’t feel deeply grateful at the tremendous good fortune that has been bestowed on you, then you are wasting your life. And life is too short to […]

I must say that this new policy in the town of Centennial is overtly discriminatory. Don’t they realize that us seniors have loads of experience and skill operating a motor vehicle?

Merry Christmas

December 23, 2018

I have long been a fan of Casting Crowns. Maybe in part because their lead singer is named Mark Hall. They released a Christmas CD this year and the song Make Room is particularly memorable. You might enjoy listening to it by clicking below.

One of a kind

December 23, 2018

The Swimswam website opened their post about Missy Franklin’s retirement with this line noting some of her most memorable accomplishments in the pool. ‘Five-time Olympic champ and 11-time World champ Missy Franklin has announced her retirement from competitive swimming at the age of 23.’ My memory is not quite as grand but still very impressive.

Negative thoughts are a lot like spider webs…they suck you in and the prison is stifling.

One a trip this past Tuesday to Parshall, Colorado, we saw a very alarming message above the highway. The statistics reveal that 1 in 4 accidents are now due to people concentrating more on their telephones than the road ahead.

Our little Maltese was named Lexie. As she aged, Lexie would flat out refuse to continue her walks with Sally and just lie down obstinately like this. This dude looks more like a Max, though.

Let go

December 12, 2018

Christmas. Another time of the year when people get so overloaded by their to do lists that the joy of the season goes out the window. Maybe it’s time to take a deep breath…exhale slowly, and let go of the musts and become grounded again.
