Thursday Night Lights

Weeeehoooo, we had fun last night!  The first football game of the season

Frankfort Panthers


Hale Eagles

Sechsunddreisig zu zwoelf
(writing the result in German to keep you guessing heehee) The last picture will tell if I got it right, heehee.

This was an exciting game for me, not that I am THAT interested in football, I  cant’ see as fast as they play.  I think I know what’s going on and I cheer and people look at me like I have grown a third eye.  “Oh no”, I must have cheered for something the other team did well – again.
It was fun to see my fellow parents in the stands, catching up with what we’ve all had going on during the summer.

Of course I love to see the kids play their favorite game.  Funny to think back when they started 7 years ago, all of them so small that the helmets made them all look like bobble heads. Their little legs could hardly keep them upright. Where ever that helmet wanted to go, that’s where they went.

Marc isn’t playing this year, he’s had a bad knee injury which put him on the sidelines for the last half of last season.  I think coming to the game yesterday made him think about that decision. He may just join that team after all. We’ll see what he decides.

Without further ado here are the pics

Let’s hope for a good season. Last year we made it all the way up to the Yuper Dome. I wanna go there again.  We had fun in where ever that was 🙂

What are you all reading?

Right now, I am reading
The Guernsey Literary and Potaoe Peel Pie Society

Love that book…

I read it on my Kindle™
I am sure just about everyone has heard of the Kindle.  I love that thing. I bought it for Mike’s birthday this year, because he could read
all sorts of  newspapers, magazines and thousands of books.
The newest books, if I want to pay $ 9.95 for one, which I frequently do.
I can order books from my kindle while I am reading or I can buy them through my computer. It takes only minutes to get any given book.  I should be a saleswoman for the kindle. I love that thing.

I use it because Mike never took to it.

I forgot to tell you something

I totally forgot to tell you in my post this morning
[the post about Hull’s] that Mariah (owner of Hull’s)  is officially



Dickie Queen

She is that because she sells more dickies than any other business in the U.S.  Two or three years ago, the Disney Cruise Line ordered thousands
of white dickies from her, for the castmembers costumes.

I thought this would interest you.

Now that I have googled “dickies” I can see where you all might be confused.  Dickies are those turtlenecks that you tuck into a blouse or a sweater
not the whole garment, just the neck part.
Really weird.
Apparently it is something the older crowd likes to dress in
