Here we are again, Me and you people in Never Never Land; sitting on my porch wondering why on earth I did not start on this column earlier! One good thing that has come out of this, I found my lap board. I know the first question that popped into your head is “what is a lap board”? You see I have been looking for it since I got home from the Daughters house and the Hubby has been giving me grief because I have been wondering where on earth it was. Don’t you hate looking for something and you can’t find it? Well, it is the board that holds my computer on my lap when I write my letters to you. See why it is so important. Of course the Hubby had to remind me that I should remember where I put things because this is not the first time I have been in such a FRENZY!

I really have more important things to tell you about. Of course, first I want you to know that all my teams won this past “first Sunday of football games”! The Hubby got so frustrated because I would not stop watching my games because he was hungry. I told him I just didn’t have time to cook. I needed to help coach! I had some close calls on some of the games but I must say I went to bed that night worn out from “ARM CHAIR COACHING” but I had a smile on my face.

Since I did not get enough football on Sunday, there was Monday Night Football! Man, I was ready! The Hubby is a Colts fan and I am a Jets fan. So when the game started and the Colts kept dropping the ball and my Jets kept making scores, he got mad and went upstairs to watch a movie. I would call that a “sore loser”, wouldn’t you. You see my friend called to see who I was cheering for and I told him that I had been a Jets fan since “Broadway Joe Namath played for them. Man, I need to be careful, I am telling my age.

Of course I had to make a trip to Russellville so I thought I would run by GOODYS to return a purse I had purchased on Saturday. Selecting a purse is the most difficult task I have. Of course this is after I found out that this purse would not hold all my “valuable stuff” that I needed to have with me at all times. Of course the Hubby had to chime in and tell me I needed a suitcase on wheels to carry all the “JUNK” I just had to have. I did not let that upset me one bit. You see even after I took the original purse back; I tried out the second purse and it will “NOT SIT UP”. The Hubby said, WHAT, why does a purse have to sit up? I put it down on the floor and it just flops over! I told him every woman knows that won’t work. So tomorrow I am going to take it by the store on my trip to Walmart. Of course, I will exchange it for another one; will keep you posted.

By the way, I will just mention that this is the time of year that you need to look through your closet and take out all the summer clothes and hang up your winter things. And you might as well pull out all those things that “got a little tight” over the summer because I guarantee you will not be getting any thinner during the winter. This is the voice of experience talking to you now.

I hate to say I have put my fishing rod up for the winter. The fishing boat is put up and if yours is not, then you better get with it. All I can say is that the fishermen at Wayne’s Place are still talking fishing and they look at me funny when I now am talking football. One “Big Blue Fan” reminded me that the

“roundball games” would be starting soon and I better get my “blue shirt” out of the closet and see if it still fits!

Till next time, as you can see I am enjoying every moment and if you are not, then I will remind you next week . Life is so short and if you can remember Joe Namath, then you are as old as “OLD TG”. And as the Hubby says, “That’s old”! Bye now.
