Heavenly Haven

Our new cottage. We've reached a verbal agreement to purchase this cottage on Craig Creek in the Jefferson National Forest. It's 15 miles, 30 minutes, and 50 years away from our home. We plan to use it for recreation, and to rent it out when we aren't using it. More details to come....

Team Player

I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?" "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times." It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on. - Jack Handey
