The Ultimate
I have heard this story before, but this is a new movie clip that does a great job of describing perhaps the greatest display of sportsmanship ever demonstrated. I hope you can watch this.

I think that is a wonderful story. Can you believe that this is true. Yes, it really happened. I sure both teams went to bed on soft pillows that night.

There is no better feeling in the world than what you get from doing the right thing! Do good today!

Happy Birthday Greetings to Sylvia 
thbirthdayredglitterSylvia is having a birthday today! I hope she has a  wonderful day. She deserves it.

Love We’re looking forward to seeing Sylvia, Mandy and Alex for Thanksgiving next week.

(Sylvia was our son Greg’s wife. Greg was killed in an automobile accident in 1983. Mandy, our Granddaughter, is Sylvia and Greg’s daughter. Alex is Mandy’s husband.)

No Fishing Today
I was planning on going fishing today, but my plans got changed due to another health issue. I found out yesterday, to my surprise (and my doctor’s surprise), that I have blood clots in my left leg. So I’ve had to slow down a bit. I’m giving myself 2 shots a day of Lovenox and I’m taking Coumadin to work on these clots. I’m keeping this leg elevated and taking it easy as I write my blog. It will keep my away from the gym, out of the boat, and away from those leaves in the yard, so it could be worse. Other than that, things will be petty much normal for me. Ah, the golden years.

Joke of the Day

A firefighter is working outside the station when he notices a little girl in a little red wagon with small ladders on the sides, a garden hose coiled in the middle, and wearing a firefighter's helmet. The wagon is being pulled by her dog and her cat.

The firefighter takes a closer look. "That sure is a nice fire-truck," the fire fighter says with high regard.

Thanks," says girl says!

The firefighter notices the girl has tied the wagon to her dog's collar and to the cat's tail.

"Little lady," the firefighter says, "I don't want to tell you how to run your rig, but if you were to tie that rope around the cat's collar, I think you could go faster."

The little girl replies thoughtfully, "You're probably right, but...then I wouldn't have a siren!
