Pass it on

This coming Friday, July 8, will mark five years since my grandpa passed away. I still can remember the day like it was yesterday. In a whirlwind my family’s lives changed. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about him, could be a song on the radio, an iced tea, seeing something on TV and wondering just what he would think about it…the list goes on.
If there was one thing I could have a do-over on, I would have listened to him more. Not just his stories, but his lessons, his experience.  It’s something I can never get back, and for that I am truly sorry. My point in all this is—coaches are coaches for a reason.

Declaring My Independence

On Sunday, I went to the flea market with my niece and her husband. I had never been before. It was held at the City Park, and I was surprised by the size of the operation. At one point, we got separated and my niece called me on my cell phone to ask me where I was. I said I didn’t know. She asked me if I was on the east side of the park and I said I didn’t know. It was quite a cloudy day and I couldn’t see the sun, so the whole “rises in the east and sets in the west” thing didn’t help me much. At one point, a couple of walked past me. One of them was looking for something. I heard her walking companion declare, “Oh, that’s way over on the east side.”
I still didn’t know where I was but I called my niece back and told her, “I’m pretty sure I’m not on the east side.”
Items for sale ran the gamut from unmitigated junk to fine art.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,
 
Obama oversteps with his presidential order on imagination. Supreme Court has to fix president’s mess. The justice department lawyers lied to the Judge. The judge has to take steps to correct Obama’s justice department.
Benghazi  attracted Obama, not present, at important meeting. Hillary makes up cover story about movie. Hillary’s failure to act, over 600 request for security aid. Hillary misleads and spins the story not only to the American people but, she lies to the families who lost their brave family member. Hillary lies and blames a YouTube movie.
Hillary was concerned about American military wearing US. Military uniforms while going to save American lives in Benghazi. Our military never even got the chance to go to Benghazi to try. Hillary was so busy trying to come up with a big spin lie.
