Merry Christmas
Did you realize there are only ninety eight shopping days left until Christmas. I can almost hear you groan.....The year as flown by faster than Dee Brasfield's old Z28 Camaro . It seems like yesterday I was making my New Year's Resolutions (many of which are broker than the Ten Commandments) then BAM.....Summer's gone and Autumn is here. First thing you know you'll smell burning leaves and get a big 'ol spider web in your face when you walk in the woods. Then you'll get the chirpy little fragrance model at the mall that will spray perfume in your face and wish you a Merry Christmas. Life is funny like that. Before you know it, it will be New Years again.
I keep a journal so that I can take a look back at how I spent my time. Sometimes I do well and some times I rank somewhere between an amoeba and three legged tortoise.

But life comes in cycles and if you live long enough, you can oftentimes adjust for errors in judgment. If you do something goofy, there's a good chance that you can do things differently the second time around. If you're not clever enough to realize that you erred, then you might continue to make the same mistakes and wind up driving a Yugo when you're sixty and eating Kibbles and Bits for supper. O.K., now I'm rambling. I just want to say that the average person has just over 300,000 hours of life. It rushes by at the speed of light. Take a moment to stop, take a deep breath, look around and be thankful for all you have. We're not here to be observers, we're here to be participants.
The Bulldogs play Good Hope on Friday night. Do yourself a favor. Take the kids and go out to the game. You'll see people you haven't seen in years. You will also hopefully see the Dawgs spank Good Hope.
Also, please say a prayer for Jilda's mother who fell Tuesday and broke her leg. She's at Princeton and recovering from the surgery.
Merry Christmas.
Rick
