Sticking with the Friendship Theme….

July 12, 2010


Have you ever had the friend who believed you could accomplish anything, that no obstacle was too great for you, that believed in you even when you didn’t even believe in yourself?  I’m blessed to say yes I have, and that friend is very rare indeed and a treasure when you are fortunate to have […]

I gotta feeling…..that today’s gonna be a good day

July 9, 2010


So, I’ll be honest.  Today I woke up in a funk.  A bad funk.  I don’t like being in that funky mood at all, and then when I have a lunch date scheduled with a fellow @amdems who is a junior high/high school guy who I hadn’t seen in years, Deb not so happy.  Not […]

June 29, 2010


Those who have gotten to know me through this blog or twitter or IRL know that I’m extremely competitive, well and thrive on competition and perhaps to the point of being stupid in the extreme heat/humidity on a tennis court, but I wouldn’t do it any differently.  You see, perhaps for those who don’t compete, […]

June 18, 2010


Sometimes you win, sometimes you fail, at a certain point, you must exhale…Ahh, this is so true.  And, sometimes, as the song says you laugh, sometimes you cry….and yet again, at a certain point, well, you must exhale…I tend to forget that part…At the moments of winning…or the moments of failing, the moments of laughing…or […]

Playing with the Boys Part Two

June 13, 2010


This is a follow up to my “Playing with the Boys” post earlier this week.  I played a hard day of tennis yesterday and have another match today or two.  The last match I played was late last night, mixed doubles.  My mixed partner is my hitting partner who we drill several times a week.  […]
