When is the military going to rearrange the way our young men are being put in harm’s way with all of this insider shooting in the Middle East? I am damn tired of our young men going to the war zone and trying to help these people and then are shot by one of the […]
Taking two of my oldest grandsons fishing this morning. Its something we can do together and I can still keep up. It’s important to spend time with your grandchildren, family. I wish when I was younger, I had spent more time with mine, and ask the right questions, lots of questions. As an example, I was speaking with my great-grandfather, from my father’s side, when I was a teenager. He lived on a farm in Illinois. He told me about the time Jesse James and the James’ Gang was passing through, returning to Missouri from Minnesota. He spoke about hiding his horses when they heard the gang would be come close by. He talked about how tense it was, until they knew they had passed.
Grand-kids can learn a lot from their grandparents, but you have to spend time together. All will benefit. I wish I had live closer to my grandparents and spent more time with them. I did go fishing with my grandpa. Just passing on the family tradition.
Outside of your home, on the way to work, to the grocery store, doctors office, even the dentist office, the first person you walk by……..smile. Say good morning. You could make their day, starting it out nice. It can get contagious! 🙂
Two Army Rangers, one a Sgt., the other a Staff Sgt. ( I am sorry I don’t have their names), were introduced and honored before the Blues/Predators playoff game tonight. Then the singing of the Anthem was dedicated to the flood victims in the St. Louis area and throughout Missouri. Charles Glenn who often sings the anthem before Blues games, sang the beginning phrase, then stepped aside from the microphone and sang along with the fans. Over 19,000, a full house, sang the National Anthem together, louder and sweeter than I have ever heard any crowd at any sporting event sing it, EVER. I heard it on the radio as I was pulling into my garage, to go watch the game on TV. I never, ever heard it clearer or louder, or with more pride.
I have never been prouder of St. Louis fans EVER. Even the radio announcers…….after the last note………..said AWESOME; OVER 19,000 SING THE ANTHEM LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD IT. You have never heard a football crowd of 70,000 sing it that loud and clear, ever. I am being honest here………it had me in near tears.
LETS GO BLUES!
It ain’t over until the Blues say its over. Game 6 in Nashville on Sunday. Go Blues!
