This was actually the end of October. Sunny. Windy. Not warm. The usual.

Action shots. From various games. Mine is 71. White jersey, you can’t really see the number though. On the right, doing what the 70’s do.

Huddling. I’m not sure how he was looking this way, but it’s a nice pic.

Green jersey here, running in, tackling or something. I took a lot of pictures but only a few of them are clear enough or action enough to be looked at. Thank goodness for digital cameras. You can take 500, for 2 good ones. Then delete them all and start over. Hi-tech.

And that’s everything in my files this year for football, I think. If I find more somewhere, I’ll just post them. We are going into the city tonight for my daughter’s birthday so I prob won’t be able to get more of this exciting world news in; But I have to do some work tomorrow, and that means I’ll already be on the computer, and…I like to waste A LOT of time while pretending to do that work, so….Super Sunday! Football! Nurse work! Blog posts from the middle of nowhere! About nothing! Absolutely nothing! Stay tuned! Later!

Happy Birthday, Take 15!

October 13, 2012 at 7:21 pm (Birthday Wishes, Day to Day, Football, For Mason, High School Football, Pink October, Rich East Rockets) (, , , , )

This is from his Homecoming dance last week. Yes, he is that good looking. Period. I will take a break from the pink posts today (and yesterday and the day before, tsk tsk) so I can put up a picture of my handsome son on his birthday. My site. My rule. Besides I think I’m scraping a barrel bottom with some of these forced “pink” postings. Seriously. Cardboard food displays? Toilet paper? It’s getting kind of dry over here. Another picture. It’s just a big awesome face…

Anyway, he’s an easy birthday boy. He played football this morning. It was raining. It was windy. The ground was wet and getting muddy.  A fight broke out between the teams 34 seconds from the end and everybody rushed the field. And we lost the game. Plus, there were 4 hardcore October bees buzzing around in the stands trying to sting a fan like it was their job. Isn’t it too cold for bees? Shouldn’t they be flying south for the winter? I mean, even when the rain really started pouring down, those bees hung out, hovering around our heads like we were going to forget they were there. At any rate, the game was over and the team had to wait , dripping outside, for the bus to come and take them back to school. Picture time…

At home, my mom (who did not sit in the cold and miserable rain–ya’ big chicken!) came over with a card and some cash, which is really the only way to go at 15. He got a few more cards in the mail. More cash. He requested a Pepe’s dinner with an XBox afternoon before and an XBox chaser after. So here we go. He’s showered and fresh and ready for the food part of his big day. I imagine the XBox part of tonight is going to be a long one, unless I can get him to curl up with me on the couch while I tell him sentimental stories of the day I birthed him. Yeah right. Sleep in Sunday. We can dig it. Alright, the natives are restless. And hungry. One last picture. Happy birthday my beautiful boy! I love you! XO Mom.

Any Given Saturday. For now.

August 27, 2012 at 11:54 am (Football, High School Football, Mason's Stories, Rich East Rockets) (, , , , , , , , )

First football game as a high schooler. First football game…ever. This is a pic that I took from Saturday’s first game for the freshman and my daughter edited and enhanced to make it look like the best football picture ever taken. The team played good enough to win. 34-20. Not too shabby for a brand new team. Of course that would be my son right in the center. He’s the starting offensive left tackle (and the long snapper as it turned out) with some dabbling in the defensive end positions as needed. He got good play time and made a good block to help the team score a touchdown. These are the glory days right? All three teams won their first game this weekend and it’s a good start to end a long summer of hot and humid practices.  Eight more to go. Needless to say, I am one proud mommy. That’s it for now. I have work, so I have to go, but I wanted this pic up where I could see it every time I click here, because it could be awhile before I get back and it just looks so cool. Great job Mason! Great pic Stevie! I love you guys! XO. Mom.
