September 7th

A decent start

Hawk Talk

Iowa’s 45-21 win over Miami of Ohio had some good points and a few bad.
That’s why I’m all for scheduling a team like the RedHawks instead of maybe LSU or Alabama.
I know Wisconsin beat LSU Saturday at Lambeau field, but the Hawkeyes have to play Iowa State every year and the ‘Clones usually play way above their heads, plus there are nine Big Ten games now and the conference is a grind and pound-out season.

The old FSL stink eye

Walkin'

I got especially nervous after we joined the church across thover added an exponential component and she cleaned for two solid weeks.
“Poor Pearl is stuck in her kennel for 10 days,” Sabra said into the phone as I walked into the kitchen.

The new best friend

Food For Thought

It seems with my own children, as well as for those of my generation, the first five or six years of school involve the discovery and cultivation of a new best friend nearly every school year. By junior high and high school, friendships tend to be deeper and longer lasting, but it is a rare thing when those first early relationships survive for another year. The reasons for this may be as simple as the seating arrangement in the new classroom when school starts each fall, or as subtle as a crooked smile, a purple backpack, or a bandaged knee.
