Man, when was the last time the New England Patriots and Alabama Crimson Tide both lost on the same weekend?

This is like the best weekend ever for me!

And the bonus was the Miami Dolphins beating the Philadelphia Eagles on the same day.

It must be a full moon or something.  😁

It staggers my mind to think that anybody could be happy that the Patriots lost.  I'm on suicide watch after last night's game, and I don't even like football that much.  The Patriots are a local symbol of excellence...but that's obviously an era about to end. 

Brady should have retired after the last Super Bowl. I don't know whether it was hubris or greed or what, but when you win a Super Bowl in your forties, that a big clue to retire.

Another of New England's truly great athletes, Rocky Marciano, retired undefeated in his early thirties.  OK, Brady wasn't being punched in the face, but he was being flung to the ground.  He should have called it a career last February rather than go through this ignominy.

Gronk did it right.  I'm afraid Brady didn't.

There are a lot of teams that think a 10-2 record at this stage of the season is pretty good.  I'm not crying for them.

My son learned today that he made Junior Districts in percussion. Not only did he make it, he's 2nd chair as an 8th grader. That's a huge accomplishment for him! I'm very proud  

Great job!!

So, I have a happy. My twin brother is "marrying" his partner next May and I was asked if I'd be going. The answer was no as we are hopefully going back to visit February 2021 for our 50th and I can't really afford it.

However, my mother said she will pay for my airfare to attend, so I'll be flying home to Sydney for about 6 days in May. This will be 11 years since I've been on my home soil and I hope to spend some time with my daughters while I'm there.

There's two of you???

We are having our annual Italian Christmas fish feast (dinner) this weekend.  It's a celebration that started over a century ago when my mom's side of the family were back in Italy.  The feast has grown and the date has changed from Christmas, to Christmas Eve-eve, to now a week and a half before Christmas but the joy and the celebration remain the same.

Listened to the NPG episode released today.   Harry made the comment that Most Wanted testing starts Monday.  I am booked to start driver testing on Tuesday.   35ish drivers to go through; sounds like it will take a while.   I'm excited!!!

Nice to live nearby.  Lucky dog!

Are you in the market for one?  If so, do you think that influences your test results?

Not in the market,  just enjoy testing golf equipment and seeing what is available.   I try to ignore the brand and model while doing the testing so I don't think my results are influenced by brand or if I am looking for something.

Next week the daugter and I are taking a quick road trip to the Redwoods. I will pick her up in Eugene and we will stop in Brookings for some crazy fabulous pizza at Zolas.  Hard to catch up during the fall as she has a ton going on at school so a road trip will be good to catch up.  She will then make it back to Salem (home) for Christmas before she heads out to So Cal for the Rose Bowl as a member of the  Ducks marching band. 

Crazy full schedule with lots of band gigs going on for the media and what not. Bittersweet in a way as the Rose Bowl was my dads favorite bowl game and he would be so proud and maybe a little jealous of her adventure.

Got to tell a car dealer where to go today after he kindly told me that I don't understand how finance and numbers work when buying a car.  I may not have gone to the best MBA program in the country but I went to one that was good enough to tell me when I was getting screwed by a kid in a cheap wash and wear suit.  Made me happy today and it was even more priceless getting a call when I was two minutes out of the dealership from his "manager" when he saw I left in a Hellcat.
