AMR's Shoulder … and a Gem from TNR

Winter BerriesAs I write, the sun is coming up over the still-snow-covered landscape.  Looks chilly out there!  Ah, December!

I’ll share some pictures (these from JBD and HollyCornblog) more or less randomly, as I write.

So first, AMR, I am bummed to hear about your bum shoulder. Goalkeeping … glorious and god-awful.  I am glad I gave it up when I did. Seems that you and Boltgirl have been having a rough patch on the pitch.  Remember, if you need a PT … there’s always Foothills!  😉

Happy LabFrom TNR (as in The New Republic) we have this wee gem gleaned from a New Yorker review of Sarah Palin’s book.

It quotes her dad, on her reasons for leaving Hawaii back in the ’80’s after spending just a semester in college there.

Oh, and for the record, this was the first of the 4 colleges she attended. Hard to stick with things, eh Sarah?  Anyway … back to Sarah’s dad …

According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: “They were a minority type thing and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home.”

Winter WestieOkay, so tell me again, what of value this person has to offer? I’m waiting …

… and wating …

… yup, still waiting …

… and kinda glaring at you, too …

… just answer the question … or give me a treat … either one will do.

Snowy LakeOn the winter wonderland front, HollyCornblog reports that they had @ 6 inches of snow up at the lake (a bit southwest of Albany in the Helderbergs).

The house was cozy, though … as HollyCornblog reported:  “We got the livingroom nice and toasty Saturday night … we think up to 80 degrees!

“In the middle of the night it got really windy and the temps dropped down to 55 inside, but considering it was in the teens and windy outside that was pretty good with a dying fire inside!  Once we stoked it up again, things warmed up fast!”

Zaney ZoeyFinally – here’s Zoey having a blast running free at the lake – tearing up the road through the snow (and back)!

May you have that kind of exhuberant energy today … whatever it brings your way!

    There is nothing that compares to the thrill of playing goal. Except, maybe, the pain you’ll feel in the subsequent days. Appointment tomorrow – keep your…arms?? crossed!!!
