I was never involved with band before meeting my wife.  She was a senior in the marching band at Virginia Tech.  It has been a huge part of her life that continues to this day.  Her best friends today are still the people she was in band with over 20 years ago.  

Likewise. My best man was someone I met through band. Now, his son is marching with my son. There are 2 other parents who I was in band with who's kids are in the program now, so it's another generation. Same with my wife - 4 of her former band mates all have kids in the program now as well. It's amazing to see them all together. I think in total right now there's 9-10 kids who's parents were in band with my wife or with me in the city next door. I love it.

Nothing like a late September cold to knock all of my energy out.

Heading to Pensacola/Fort Walton Beach tomorrow for my 50th high school reunion (Fri and Saturday).  The first night of the reunion will be at the high school homecoming football game and it just happens to coincide with my 68th birthday.  Sadly, I won't be taking my clubs with me this trip.

When I get back at the end of the month, we'll be taking off for 2 weeks in the motorhome to visit Moab and eastern Utah.  I'll take my clubs, but not sure how much golf I'll get in.

Maybe all of my bad habits will disappear while I'm not playing....as if!  🙂

Have a fun trip, either way! Sometimes it helps to take time off .. let the swing muscles recoup .. and let the positive vibes 😄 start flowing again...

That's the problem when you have kids in school. I hardly ever get a cold now that we're empty nesters.

My daughter will NOT let our grandson play tackle football, no way, no how.
He’s a good baseball player, soccer player and she’s good with that.
She let him play in a “Flag Football” league and he seems content with that. Baseball his 1st love.

My wife was in the same boat and I was indifferent to my son playing. He decided he wanted to play and has been for the last 8 years. Loves golf and football the same but there is something for him about running onto the field and mixing it up that he just loves. I played through college at the Div 1 level and did not even let him know that I played past high school until about a year or so ago. Let the kids do what they enjoy and leave it at that. I get just as much joy out of watching him play football as I do watching my girls dance, play in the band or play soccer.

The Prosser trip and my reunion were conflicts.  Moab was always planned for after our event in Prosser.  My wife convinced me to do the reunion rather than the rally in Prosser.  It came down to either you or all those aging cheerleaders from high school.....they won out.  🙂

Spent last week in CT visiting our daughters, 4 Gkids and, gotta mention the son-in-laws. Their not that bad, well one of them I like.
Anyway Gkids doing great, busy and doing great. Had a great talk with 13 year old grandson after his soccer game. He said he’s done with soccer, not fun anymore. Next year in HS going to stay with Legion & HS baseball summer & spring and Marching Band and Flag Football and Fall Legion ball in the Fall.
So dropping soccer for Band. He said needs a change and it’s a great HS Band program. His older sister has been in 2 years and he plays trumpet. Big step for him. I think it’s a good move for him.
Oldest granddaughter checking out colleges and med school programs. She’s been offered 2 Free Rides if she plays Softball but the curriculum will not be good for Med School either school. This will be interesting.

Small world. I have one granddaughter in the band and her brother will be in next year. Like I said he’s dropping soccer to join . They are performing at Disney FL in the Spring. They do trips every year. Program has 125+ kids so its popular.

The Country Club was nice however this country boy is flying the coop.  I injured my knee a week ago while walking a round of golf.   Sprained my MCL with tear and that ended my golfing with the high rollers escapade.  I was the only senior walker during the week and while trying to hustle to keep pace with the cart riders,  my left knee paid the price.   If my wheels are going to start breaking down while walking this particular course (which is a tough track to walk) then I'm back to my old stomping grounds. I play three times per week so if I chose to ride at $20 per pop, it would be an extra $60 per week  x 4 or  $240.00  more per month which is not in my budget.
