  • "Free" stuff always comes with a cost

    I love free stuff.
    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.
    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.
    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!

  • Cardinals edge Yankees with three runs in 5th

    The younger Cardinals hit the ball with authority and the whole team played good defense as they eased by the Yankees in Monday night Cal Ripken play.  
    Both teams entered the fray with 4-7 records and needed the win to get back on track for the season.  
    The Yankees scored first with a run in the top of the first on three walks and a ground out to second.  

  • Many events and so little time

    I know that time is a common problem for many sporting events as well as families that have children.  
    The problem is trying to be two places at one time or doing two events at once.
    I mentioned this in passing last week when I wrote about the track awards luncheon.  
    The number of athletes attending this luncheon was reduced significantly by basketball events for both boys and girls, soccer and baseball contests all going on at the same time or on the road.

  • The Accident

    I was at my mother-in-law’s house last summer and was putting up a handrail on her steps for her.
    While I was attaching the handrail, my drill slipped and the screw driver bit slipped off the screw and into my thumbnail.
    Ouch, did it hurt.
    I stopped, took care of my injury and then proceeded to go back to work installing the handrail. I got the job done without any further problems or injuries.
