A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

It's Raining in Texas

We don't watch much sports on TV at our house and never have; however, with the Tigers playing in the last series, trying to win five out of seven games, the remote gets stuck on the baseball game. It's Sunday evening and the Tigers are playing against Texas--not in our favor, last time I checked.

How is it that there are so many "fair-weather fans"? I have to admit: I'm one of them. In spite of the fact that my husband actually works at Joe Louis Arena, and enjoyed being on the high school varsity football team, we still don't watch much sports, as I said--fair-weather fans!

Time lapse: The Tigers are still playing but it has started to rain and the field has been covered. I'll bet lots of fans are disappointed right now. It puts a real damper on things! The stands are half full of die-hard fans wearing rain ponchos, sitting under umbrellas, holding up banners, etc.

With the score now at 3 - 2, Texas leading, we're still hoping that soon the Tigers will be vying for the pennant.We have much hope!

Back to the game. Oops, still nothing. You'll just have to turn on your own telly later to find out the rest of the story...

Pleasant dreams of going out to the ballgame, hot dogs, beer, pop, cheers, pompoms, big "D's" on peoples shirts...

Good night my fair weather friends.
