If life hands you lemons, make lemonade!

I was so sad that we could not make it to Nashville but , after a wonderful weekend on the Eastern Shore , we returned in time to watch my grandson  wrestle in the state finals.  We were thrilled to see him receive  his 2nd place trophy, after having some wonderful matches and pinning three opponents!  We then came back to house in time to watch my granddaughter's friends having fun at her birthday party.  It turned into a super weekend.

    Greymo:  We are sorry that you could not make the trip but we totally understand.  I would have done the same thing but we missed seeing you.

    Family First is always a good guideline in any decisionmaking over events like these.  We missed you, but you did the right thing.

    Ah, but this kid's a football player, too. And from what I understand his folks aren't going to have to worry about college costs for him, his younger sister or his older sister.
