Peace Be With You


A friend of mine lost his mother to cancer today, brought back all too many memories.

I miss you Mom.

Merry Christmas,


Is that you Santa?


Is that you Santa?
Can it really be?
I don’t know big guy,
You look familiar to me!

Yes…yes.  Very familiar.  Thank you to all of the Santas who made a child smile this year!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

12 Days of Christmas

TwelveDaysOfChristmasA friend of mine gave this to me the other day.  I am not sure if there is any truth to it.  But it made me smile so I decided not to google it and just pass it on.  I welcome your comments.

In the early days, Catholics were not allowed to profess their faith openly.  So someone wrote this song with two levels of meaning, the surface meaning, plus the hidden meaning known only to the members of their church.

The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.

The two turtle doves were the Old and the New Testament.

The three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.

The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.

The seven swans a swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit:  Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership and Mercy.

The eight maids a milking were the eight beatitudes.

The nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit:  Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.

The ten lords a leaping were the Ten Commandments.

The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.

The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles’ Creed.

Class Act


We all know Houston needed a change.

Kubiak exits with class, something most people can’t do as they are too busy pointing fingers and blaming others.

Best of Luck Kubiak! Many Houstonians will miss you.

My last game with Kubiak. Houston’s last home game with Kubiak.
