5 Things We Know On A Sunday

Brought to you in part by Premier Sportsplex. The Game Is ON!!!!

  1. Remember that book/poster/saying from the late 80’s? “All I Need To Know, I Learned In Kindergarten”? Well, that’s a bunch of goose crap. I’ve learned a lot more as an adult than I learned as a kid. What I did learn as a kid was that I needed to learn a whole lot more as an adult. I’m still learning. Hope I never stop.
  2. Never apologize for where you’re from or what your accent sounds like. It seems to me, that the folks who don’t sound like they came from somewhere, came from nowhere and have exactly that kind of backbone and values. Embrace where you come from. It helps define you. Even if you’re from Oklahoma or other Yankee states…. I’d rather trust an honest Yankee than a West Texan who worries they’re “too country”… Y’all know what I mean.
  3. In honor of Free Candy Night/Begging For Food… Top 3 Candy Bars, All-Time: No.3. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Not a true candy bar, but still greatness no doubt. No. 2. Mr. Goodbar. Just about the perfect blend of chocolate and nuts. I can eat 15-20 of the mini-bars around Christmas. No better stocking stuffer. No. 1. The Zero Bar. Excellent on all fronts and not nearly recognized for its stellar candy goodness. Get one today. Put it in the fridge. Eat it. You’ll thank me later. And all of you good folks, don’t go cheap on Halloween. Give out good stuff. None of that Bit O’ Honey or caramel junk.
  4. I came across a newspaper article the other day I’d saved. It was my brother’s football coach reflecting on some of his favorite players he coached over the years. He talked not about my brother’s on-field exploits, and he was pretty good, but rather his leadership qualities. It was the same for all the players the coach mentioned. It is a great reminder that for the most part, if you want to leave a mark, it’s not so much what you do, it’s how you do it and how you influence and impact others. Achievement is nothing really without a legacy of positive impact on others.
  5. We’ve got a lot of dogs around our place. One less unfortunately since Old Pete left us a while back, but we’ve still got enough. No matter how good or bad your day is going, dogs will bring you back to a basic reality. Hey… it’s time to eat. Hey… it’s time to go outside and pee. Hey… let’s go to bed. Hey… I’m pretty sure God created dogs as a daily reality check for all of us to have someone else to take care of who really doesn’t worry about how cool you are, how successful you are or anything else other than… Hey… I’m glad to see ya… I’m quite sure it wasn’t cats. Cats are here to remind us . . . We really aren’t all that important in the grand scheme of things.



  1. gotta disagree about “Kinder”garten. Follow the leader and show ‘n tell are two pretty good skills. ?
