The other teams coach is one of my best friends. We were 3-3 against each other. He called me last night and told me he hopes they beat us so bad that we dont field a team next year. Told him I hope he breaks his leg walking out to the game from the locker room...some friendship, huh? It was all in good nature...I dont want him to break his leg! Well, maybe.

I hope your team is able to upset them, it would be such a huge moment in the kids lives to pull off the unexpected.

Careful, if you played on the Miami Dolphins and said that, you would be investigated. Sorry, that probably wasn't entirely appropriate, but that is all they are talking about on the radio here in New England. It is a horrible circumstance with the bullying, but I think there was a lot more going on than what is being reported thus far.

You be sure to come in there in July next year dressed head to toe in all Christmas attire, t-shirt, socks, elf shoes, Santa hat, etc. and really get them going!

We have a local thrift store up the road with some really nice people who run it. It is so small that they have to rotate stock. Every year in July they get all the Christmas items out and have "Christmas in July" sale for the entire month. People flock there to buy up Christmas and they know I will be there. It's a thrift store for charity that our church even donates money to. They are happy to get my money for a worthy cause.

Have fun shopping and don't let them get to ya! (even though it is annoying!) =)
I am not letting it bother me too much, because I know when I shop there it is for a worthy cause. They keep their Christmas stuff out to buy all year long and the turn on their Xmas inventory is amazingly fast, that is why I go there so often. I don't want to miss out on something. Also, in this area we have an amazing number of antique shops and "pickers" that do the same thing. If I don't react fast I may miss out. I have overheard the "pickers" that they have bought merchandise for a few bucks, and then turned around and made a huge profit. One guy was bragging how he bought a watch for $25, and sold it for $1000.

Well cool! I didn't realize Lifetime had movies on at night/wknd already. I will have to check it out. We don't get LMN! Thanks!

You know you are in no man's land when you pass a sign that says "caution; tumbleweeds on roadway." That sign does exist and I will see it tomorrow. But I'll have Dean, Bing, Frank, and everyone to keep me company. Northwest Oklahoma has some very cool things for a guy like me who loves the west with random mesas, hills, and small canyons scattered about. Just seeing that area makes me feel like I need to be on a horse with a rifle and shotgun strapped beside a bedroll and a food pouch, and a pistol strapped to my side.

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!
Stay safe on the roads. That tumbleweed sign would be awesome to see.

In the my part of Massachusetts, we're lucky to go more than a few miles without seeing a house. There are lots of old stone walls built in the 1700-1800's still around. I love seeing them, I can just imagine the old farmers plotting out their property by building those walls. We have miles upon miles of them around here.

I'm hoping to get a lot more done on Saturday and hopefully finish up by end of next week. Then it will be time for the fun things like christmas cards, shopping and bringing down the decorations etc.

I am having a little break with a cup of Christmas tea, a Christmas cookie ,MMC and I've tuned into Merry In-laws on tv. I am making a point of taking a Christmas time out every day till Christmas day even if its just 20 minutes or so. It's so easy to get caught up with everything else and before you know it the season is over and your left wishing you savoured it more.

I saw the Christmas ad for another big department store last night!

I hope you all are having a really good day. I am super excited about tomorrow. First day of the special posts, best of luck Made!!!
I hope he is feeling better.
