Of course, I'm excited. But, I am going to go out on a limb here; the Broncos will lose by many points! I still have a soft spot for the team tho...been following them since the 1960s!!! When Craig Morton was quarterback....the majority probably never heard of him. Oh my gosh, I just realized I've been a fan as long as the super bowl existed. I'm ancient!! Even tho the game will no doubt be one-sided -me thinks-, I will still have my blue and orange garb and my 'traditional' blue and orange cupcakes. No different, after all these years. Secretly hoping I'm wrong in my prediction. There was a duo on the 'old team' long ago that continues today to be my favorite players...Elway and #87....wowsers!...Ed Macaffery Still....GO BRONCOS
Several weeks ago, I had mentioned on a cold, very windy day, Bud and I walked along the trail that connects the two parks adjacent to two city boundaries, Portland/Corpus Christi, Texas. The parks have two names even tho they are of one section of land...On the Corpus Christi side, it's Indian Point. On the Portland, Texas side, it's called Sunset Lakes. While walking along the path I stopped and watched an egret preen; having difficulties keeping balanced and feathers flying all a'kilter. My first thought was "a bad hair day" but that is so cliché, I'll forgo with that and just share the photos I took of it - - -
It's February, and y'all know what that means...on the 9th I will be 67. Bud found this cute, little, fun, book for me and brought it home. All about the year 1949. I had to read it from cover to cover of course. Brought back tons of memories of things I can remember...no, not of the particular year...but the lifestyles that changed from 1949 and how my parents raised me throughout my formative years. That was the year that was...from the onset of dishwashers, TV sets, nonsensical cartoons, clothes, women becoming part of the work force outside the home. They taught me how to act and learn respect. Things that somehow seem like the simpler life; it was better in so many ways!! Thru the years, I've gone from toddler, to adolescence, to wife, at one time loving to travel a lot around the country, mother, grandmother and retiree. Life is good.
