hawk talk

Talk about deja-vü all over again.
Last year, Minnesota was 4-0 when it came to Iowa City.
The Gophers were a good running team and were playing good defense last season.
This year, Minnesota was 4-0 coming into to the Iowa game.
The Gophers’ running game is one of the best in the Big Ten and their defense was bigger and stronger.
Last year, Iowa won 31-13 and Mark Weisman rushed for 177 yards (8.4 per carry). Iowa led 24-0 at half.
This year Iowa won 23-7 and Mark ran for 145 yards (6.1 per carry). Iowa led 17-0 at the half.
Can you say domination?

The bachelor

walkin'

Sabra is visiting her parents and friends in Denver this week. The trip was planned awhile back so she didn’t go there because of the flooding. As it turns out her family and friends are all okay, although her sister, who lives in Golden, had water in her basement. In any event, that leaves me home alone for five days with only Pearl, the cats and chickens to keep me company.

Room for improvement

Food for Thought

I belong to three organizations that are made up of some very talented and creative people. In all three instances, I feel flattered to be accepted as an equal and I have great respect for the opinions they share about the things we create, both individually and as a group. One group (the one with the broadest scope) consists of professional women writers, artists and composers of music. As a writer and artist, I feel pretty much at home among the others, even though their talents often seem unattainable compared to the things that I am able to come up with.
