Monday Musings - Monday, January 29, 2018


1. Amazingly, this is the last Monday of January 2018. I scarcely can believe that the month is almost over. 

2. Yesterday was a rough day in the youth basketball department. Both Ethan and Jackson's undefeated teams suffered their first losses of the season. I added a short video of Ethan, number 3 in black, working the court.



3. Sunday's can pass very quickly when there are many things to do.

4. It rained all day yesterday, at least it was not snow!

5. I replaced all of the windshield wipers on Chris's car during the week. Amazingly, we can see out the windows during rainstorms now!

6. Watching golf on TV can be frustrating, especially when the playoff does not end until the next day while I am at work. And so goes the Farmer's Insurance Open. I wonder if they will make a funny commercial about "covering that?"

7. It is really cool when your kids run into a former boss and he says really nice things about our time working together.

8. Last week was a really interesting week. I was furloughed for a day and played golf twice! Not bad for mid-January activity.

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week


"And in all of that time I won a nickname, 'The Great Communicator.' But I never thought it was my style or the words I used that made a difference: it was the content. I wasn't a great communicator, but I communicated great things, and they didn't spring full bloom from my brow, they came from the heart of a great nation -- from our experience, our wisdom, and our belief in the principles that have guided us for two centuries."
Farewell Address to the Nation, January 11, 1989
