Let’s Play Ball

The Summer Games
IMG_0753Kara, my youngest granddaughter, is playing 2 sports at the present time: softball and volleyball. She sometimes has a game in each sport on the same day. Just last week we went to see the softball game in the afternoon, and a volleyball game that evening. The picture shows her in her school uniform.

We think she will take tennis lessons again this summer. There may be more sports activities to keep her active. We’ll find out later.

Zachary, my grandson, on the other had has not committed to summer sports. He has said he wants to play basketball. We’re hoping he will take tennis lessons, and maybe go to a basketball camp. We’ll see.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I’m glad to see young people get outside and play. The air is refreshing and the exercise is healthy.
I remember when I was growing up, that we played constantly during the summer days. We would invent games, and do all sorts of things like: play softball, have a track meet, fly kites, wrestle, etc. Mom would have to call us  to come in for supper and the night.

Quote of the Day
Three things in human life are important:
the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind;
and the third is to be kind.

Joke of the Day

The older you are and the longer you have been married, the funnier this is…

The wife and I were sitting around the breakfast table one lazy Sunday morning.

I said to her, "If I were to die suddenly, I want you to immediately sell all my stuff."

"Now, why would you want me to do something like that?" she asked.

"I figure that you would eventually remarry and I don't want some other big dummy using my stuff."

She looked at me and said: "What makes you think I'd marry another big dummy?"

Your Granddaughter is a cutie! Our GrandLoves are also in so many summer sports of one kind or another., even hockey! It is great they are all so active. As for your Grandson,? I think maybe he wants to go fishing with his Granddad!
Loved the joke and the quote is 'right on.'
