Courage

June 17, 2022

The sidewalks were sizzling as the temperature climbed above one hundred People flooded to ice cream parlors….. movie theatres….and the library to find relief from the heat I had just pushed the down button on the elevator at Koelbel library when a woman in her seventies entered the front door She was assisted by a […]

“Daddy, daddy, come up here, it’s awesome!” Seven year old Emma is on Thanksgiving break Decked out in a bright yellow skirt and a blue sweater tied around her waist It’s two days before the holiday and unseasonably warm in Littleton, Colorado A jet streaks west across The cloudless Denver sky And two crows squawk […]

I’m still hopeful that The Boston Celtics can bounce back in Game 6 and then win against Golden State in Game 7. If not, they should schedule a week long shooting clinic in August with legends Ray Allen and Larry Bird. There’s a reason Golden State jump shooters are more effective…they have better mechanics. Why […]

Sally and her friends schedule an annual trip to Cabo in February. They love the exotic adult beverages, the whales, and lunch visits to Flora Farms. Years ago, I asked if there was anything I could do to enhance their trip. ”Well…it would be great if you could find some ‘hunks’ to serve as pool […]

A very young cowboy just finished a book about our efforts to track down terrorists by utilizing high flying drones. Here’s a fact you might find of interest. A drone can read the writing on a golf ball from three miles above. Remarkable!

Deception

June 10, 2022

Ok…it’s surely a passing fancy that will have no place in tennis. It is rumored that tennis pros in the Atlanta area are teaching a new and deceptive backhand. The idea is really rather ingenious. Soon after contact, the player lets out a loud shriek and immediately puts her head on her shoulder and pretends […]

Patience

I’m very proud of my wife tonight. She played golf early this morning in her ladies league and survived two four putt greens in nine holes. I immediately flashed on my first four putt green in 1968 at Lake Valley Golf Club in Boulder…how it was like a lightning bolt skewering my brain. Kudos to […]

Second thoughts

June 6, 2022

I questioned Sally after my last workout at the gym…”Honey, you know I’ve been working out 4-5 times a week for the past year or so. There’s a lot of guys at the gym who wear these muscle shirts to show off their physiques…do you think you can order me a handful from Amazon?” ”You […]
