Well, here we are in Chapter Ten, and I, for one, need something that feels normal for a change of pace. Football. It is September and that is when I long for football. Games. Brisk weather. Chaos is OK for about five minutes. Then I need something that calms me down. Like changing leaves and football games on the television set. Soccer? NO. Good, old-fashioned American football. I don’t do this calm thing. I was weaned on football and exciting Friday and Saturday football games! Gainesville High School, handsome football players, University of Georgia, Georgia Tech. University of Wisconsin, Badgers, marching bands. Football!
Okay, the above pictures are taken from yesteryear (1955), but I feel comfortable in posting those shots. I miss all of that. I am still working on feeling comfortable in Paris. (sigh)
And, I miss working, period. This weekend is the CAALA Convention in Las Vegas at my favorite Vegas Hotel (The Bellagio), and I want to be there – mask and all.. As an attorney, I did my best to fight for justice for the little guy. I tried to give back as a thank you for all of my blessings. It worked for me and I think it worked for my clients.
So, now, I do my best with this body that presents me with challenge after challenge. The good news is that I am in Paris. This is a view out my window. I look at the sky a lot.
One doctor told me that they (brain strokes) would heal, but that it would take a long, long, long, long time. Oops. I don’t do patience.
At present, I have a lot of channels with football games, but I don’t like the hours that they come on. But, I will watch some of them anyway and check all scores and follow the season. It will be fun! Go Dawgs !! On Wisconsin!
And, now a few memes that I’d like to share:
BEST, JAY (This is not a current picture – January, 2017, but one I like.)
