Matt and Frisco Band Play in Downpour

It was a rainy Friday night. The Frisco Raccoons are ahead at halftime and the band is playing tunes in the rain.

Matt's almost 15 and can't wait to drive on a permit and get a car from dfwcarfinder.

Breaking News!

A new study suggests that your zodiac sign is more significant than your age or zip code concerning your driving safety and ability to drive well. The study suggests Acquarians and Librans are the worst drivers.

Hmmmm,.... I don't believe it's true.

SeaTac Removes Christmas Trees

What the heck is going on???? SeaTac airport in, egad, Seattle has taken down their Christmas trees. All the legal BS about trees was LAST YEAR.

So, when are you guys, Dan, Charlotte and Benji going to move someplace reasonable???? Sheesh.... Washington is now turning ANTI-green. Pretty soon, all you'll have left is black.

Dan Visits Dallas

Unlike mom's visit to Seattle, you see here that Dan's visit to Dallas *IS* celebrated with at least one picture. Here's Dan at the SSO enjoying music belted out by David, during intermission, feeling giddy that he thinks he looks like dad when he was young buck.

David Plays SSO

David getting mentally prepared to play trumpet in the Sherman Symphony Orchestra Christmas Pops concert. Shhhh, don't bother him. He doesn't know I'm sneaking this picture, he he. :-)))

Birthday Boy

11 years old....Happy Birthday Matt!!!

Melissa in Dallas Childrens Parade

No picture. :-((( I was at the Richardson Parade with Matt. :-)))

I suspect she was also on the TV, but by the time I got back home, the Frisco Stars had moved beyond the TV camera.

Melissa in Dallas Morning News



Here's a B&W picture of Melissa from the Dallas Morning News Metro section, page 2. She has on the white hat, center left of the picture (and not facing the camera). She's in the back of a pickup truck getting ready for the Frisco Veterans Day parade.

There's also a better color picture of Melissa in the truck done by me, as well as a pic of one of my trucks with the rest of the girls.

David's Not So Long Christmas List



Hmm...so my father has told me to post what I am wanting for Christmas. And the truth is....I have no idea what I want for Christmas. I pretty much have everything I need. Family, education, girlfriend, friends, a life, etc...

But going with the education thing, I am in college as most of you know. Or at least I hope you do. haha. And well...it make it easy, I am a poor college student. So I think that money, as impersonal as it may be, is a good way to go this Christmas. Or if you think you may have a good idea, go for it. Either way I will be happy.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! And I will be seeing some of you this weekend for my symphony concert. sweet.

Melissa's Dilemma

Frisco won their first playoff game tonight in Double Overtime. Yeah, Frisco! The next game is the Friday after Thanksgiving. Melissa has a dilemma. She also has tickets to the Rockette's next Friday night.

I've told her what I think she should do; so has Vicki. Melissa can't decide what to do. So, y'all need to comment on the blog to help her know what to do, please.

BTW, Matt plays on Sat afternoon in the Dallas Catholic Bowl against St. Rita. The two best teams out of the 40 in Dallas are going helmet to helmet. Go Lions!!! Game time 4p at Jesuit HS.
