As the Lady Tigers continue toward their 11th straight district championship, the only question is if anybody can score a goal on them in district play.

Youthful Innocence

Do you ever look back at the things that happened when you were young that really could have caused lasting emotional problems? Now we all had to face the day when we found out the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and a well known Holiday personality were not real. That seems to be part of growing up. I did find it a bit ironic that I was punished for not telling the truth, termed; “lying.” But the same parents seemed to believe that keeping the myths of childhood purveyors of goodies alive was a healthy part of child rearing. Even that is acceptable, to a degree. I am thinking along the lines of contests and such that were pitched to the young minds with fabulous prizes and simple entries or contests.

Warm and Sunny

After many weeks of cold, rainy, icy weather, we finally got a break this weekend with plenty of sunshine. My wife and I have had cabin fever for the past couple of months, so we wanted to enjoy the outdoors as much as we could while the weather holds out.
