Really?

June 30, 2019

The temperature was well into the nineties today so my bride and I delayed our walk for 7:30 p.m. A not so young man grabbed a fleece thinking it would be a comfortable choice. Midway in our walk, I was sweating uncomfortably and asked Sally if it might be ok to complete the walk with […]

Movie Time

June 30, 2019

We enjoyed the preview of ‘Yesterday’….the movie that features the music of The Beatles. The show did not disappoint and I can recommend it if you’re a Beatles fan. It is a very unlikely story but a very nice ninety minute getaway.

Wise beyond their years

June 25, 2019

“Children are capable of great things, not just in the future but now. Children can be a source of hope and even strength. They can inspire us with their kindness;  they can make us see beauty where we noticed only the mundane. They can make us stop and think;  they can push us to do […]

Belief

June 21, 2019

Rob Mendez is a successful high school football coach and the 2019 recipient of The Jimmy V Award for perseverance. Just a guess but I’m thinking he is not too accepting of excuses from his student athletes. He proves that most all of our trials are mere trifles indeed. Being born without arms or legs could […]

Say it ain’t so

June 21, 2019

A young cowboy learned today that actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband have a very unique marriage. They share a home four days a week and go their separate ways for three days. I guess the guiding principle is that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I mentioned the arrangement to Sally thinking she’d view […]

Tennis momentum

June 20, 2019

Yesterday, a very young cowboy had a tennis drill group that was attended by Susan, Suzie, Susan, and Susan. Susan P. mentioned that her and her partner were starting slowly in their matches and losing the first set routinely. I suggested they change their routine. Find a team who is competitive and play the best […]

APO

June 14, 2019

Josh Rosen is the quarterback for The Buffalo Bills. His high school coach trained the players to incorporate a three letter acronym when adversity came their way. APO. Adjust…Persevere…Overcome. Love it! One of the greatest practitioners of APO is Conner Stroud who is one of the top wheelchair tennis players in the world.

Clueless in Centennial

June 14, 2019

On Monday night, a very tired cowboy was suddenly and rudely awakened at 11:30 p.m. by an F – 15 fighter jet that roared over the tree tops in our normally quiet cul de sac. The noise was deafening as the house felt like it was shaking. As I tried to compose myself, the question […]

Ridiculous

June 7, 2019

Dominic Thiem is in the semifinals of The French Open. He faces an extremely tough task to win the tournament. He plays Novak Djokovic today and, if he wins, would need to beat the 11 time champion Rafa Nadal. Win or lose, he’s had a great tournament and provided lots of excitement along the way. […]

Ninety seven years young

June 5, 2019

Tom Rice was a paratrooper on D-Day 75 years ago. He and his mates dropped in over France on that unforgettable day and we owe him and his friends every ounce of gratitude possible. Well…today, the 97 year old recreated the jump and just have a look for yourself. Scroll and click.

Encouragement

June 3, 2019

We love watching the women’s college softball World Series each year. The enthusiasm of the players and their rabid fans is something to behold. Tonight, one of the announcers was talking about a hitter who was in an 0 for 26 slump. She said the player was ‘taking a long trip on the trouble train.’ […]
