Duke

Say it ain’t so

January 26, 2020

The sports world is reeling tonight. RIP Kobe and Gianna. We may not have rooted for you when The Lakers took the court in Denver but, oh my, do we respect you and what you have meant to kids all over the world. How many times you torched us…leaving us to wonder how on earth […]

Spare me

January 22, 2020

Five things I’d rather do than listen/look at liars Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler on TV. Have a prostate biopsy daily for a week. Undergo a root canal without anesthesia Get hit in the head with a baseball bat Pick up 30 piles of dog doo in the backyard Watch Nancy Pelosi say that this […]

Awareness

January 18, 2020

Lloyd Harris is playing in the singles finals in Adelaide. He’s a new player on the scene from South Africa. The commentators gave him a nice compliment early in his match vs. Rublev of Russia. ”He’s one who hardly ever lets big chunks of a match go by without making a change if things are […]

Hazel

January 18, 2020

Ms. Hazel came by today to meet Donzie and Minnie. It was a match made in heaven as she immediately fell in love with them and was hoping to take them home for a play day. Today, Hazel is in Silverthorne playing with her pet moose Natasha but we hope she’ll come over again for […]

Refresh

January 12, 2020

Doug gave a very memorable sermon today. He said that he and probably everyone else in attendance go spiritually flat at times. ‘It’s as if we need to hit the refresh button on our heart to get back on track.’ What a terrific image! Who knows…maybe, if we’re observant, we can try to help friends […]
