Once again it's Thursday and that means it's time to share three things.
1. Basketball. Last night Chesapeake Bay Daughter played her last game of the regular season; tournaments are next week. The teams were not exactly evenly matched. That's a polite way of saying the other team was not that good, bless their hearts. Of the 40-some points for our team, Daughter scored 22. Last week she scored 16 of 21 total points. (Yes, I am bragging; sorry, I can't help it. I'll stop now.) But watching her play basketball is my new favorite past time, one I hope to enjoy for at least another four more years. Eight if she plays in college...
2. It's goose season. Daggone it! When I came home from last night's game, there were Canada geese aaaaaall over my yard. It's full-on war now keeping them out of my yard. This is particularly difficult living next to CB Mother who, along with her own killer goose Gustav, welcomes them with open arms and the promise of unlimited corn. They have no idea where the property boundaries are and seem a little befuddled and confused (or is that cornfused?). They're welcome in one yard, viewed as Number One Public Enemy in the neighboring yard. So, with headlights bouncing up and down such that anyone at this end of Queens Creek would have their night's entertainment all taken care of, I drove all over the yard--up and down hills, weaving in and out of pine trees--to chase them off. And they'll be back. Just like ANTS.
3. This swing. These photos were taken last Sunday after the snow down near the public landing at White's Creek, at the end of Route 682. The bay is barely visible in the background. A simple rope swing like this brings back a flood of childhood memories. To read about some of those memories in a rambling post from 2008, click here.
Now it's your turn to share three thoughts. Whatever you want. Anything at all.
