Rough Season

My Godson, AJ, was so proud to tell me that he’d be playing for the Panthers this year. Not the NFL team, the cute little kid version of the team. He knows that Gramma Lou (my mom, Wheezy) and I both cheer for Carolina.

Well, despite his toughest, fastest efforts, like the NFL team, the kiddie Panthers are having a REALLY rough season.

Me: Hi AJ, how is football?

AJ: Not so good, we’re O-and-5

Me: Ummm… well…. are you doing your best?

AJ: Yes, but we still don’t win.

Me: Ummm… do you still have fun playing football?

AJ: Yes, but we just never win.

Me: Okay, put your sister on the phone

When I called yesterday, I asked his mom, “should I even bring up football?” She replied with the word, “massacre.” Poor little guy. Just not much to say when a kid’s team really, really stinks. Would it be poor sportsmanship to encourage him to become a free agent mid season?

Cheese Alternative?

Can this possibly taste good?  I'll try it.  After all, I've finally developed a taste for vanilla soy milk in my cereal.  My mom's lactose intolerance keeps getting worse, but we really miss eating cheese.  Borden's lactose free American cheese slices are pretty good, but we haven't found a cheddar-like product we like yet.  Not sure I want to trust a cheese product that's claim to fame is, "it melts."  Shouldn't we expect a cheese product to melt?

The New Crib

Fixing up the house is my new obsession. They should just give me a parking space at Lowes.
