A big time hero

November 26, 2020

Alex Smith is smiling again. Tonight, he quarterbacked The Washington Redskins to a convincing win on the road against The Dallas Cowboys. What an incredible comeback story. On November 18, 2018, he suffered a compound fracture of his leg. Alex has had 17 surgeries since that fateful day and developed a sepsis infection that threatened […]

What a nice gesture by The Denver Broncos. They sent a game ball last week to Hall of Famer Floyd Little who is currently in hospice care. Way to go, team!

Thanksgiving during a pandemic…my, oh my, have things changed. And still we’re hopeful…still optimistic that next year will bring the world back to normal. Health, happiness, and hope to you all.

Reflection

November 24, 2020

A very young cowboy’s Alma mater…Mesa College (now Colorado Mesa University) has come up with a terrific idea. It’s called The CMU Center for Reflection. A sanctuary where students can go day or night to get their thoughts together, find some peace, and remove themselves from the hecticity of their world. During these covid times, […]

Appreciation

November 22, 2020

It is a pretty safe bet that 99 percent of us will never be elite level tennis players, golfers, or fly fishermen. Given that, maybe it’s wise to embrace each moment trying to improve a bit each day.

Rock Stars!

November 22, 2020

Blake and Taylor love to dance. They love their dogs, Halloween,and spending time with their cousins. The two sisters sure impressed a very young cowboy today on the tennis court as they raced from sideline to sideline. As they say…’we love to compete with our feet’.

No detours

November 18, 2020

Two top male tennis players were early in the match today at The Nitto ATP finals. The commentator mentioned how important it was for one player to play solidly early because he has a history of taking a detour to ‘nega town’. How are you at avoiding that change of direction after losing your serve […]

Back to basics

November 15, 2020

With all that’s going on in our world, people everywhere are searching for answers…contemplating how we can turn this ship around. Who can stem the tide that has been pushing us under since March? Who can bring our fractured country back to some semblance of togetherness? Some intuitively know that it’s not this candidate or […]

Equilibrium

November 14, 2020

In these cwaaaazzzzy covid times, maybe we can learn from our neighbors in the animal kingdom. Evidently, golfer Dustin Johnson has. He has recovered from the virus and is leading The Masters late in the third round. The announcers say that he has that valuable ability to treat daily challenges like a 🦆 who just […]

Special

November 14, 2020

Jannik Sinner has burst onto the men’s tennis tour like a fireworks display on The Fourth of July. He seems to possess every tool in the book…and then some. Today, after racing to net to play an uncanny winner against his incredulous opponent, the announcer proclaimed, ‘he’s something special…makes the difficult look easy like the […]
