NFL – 3 out of 4?

divisionalWell, I guess 3 out of 4 isn’t bad.   I went with the Colts because I just don’t like the Patriots.   It would have been a stab in the heart to root for them.    I should have known better.   I never should have listened to my heart … when my head was telling me something else!

Becky, of all the games, the Chargers vs Broncos game was the best !!

My new widget … Kind of New


As a participant in the Zero to Hero challenge my 10th task is to add a widget.   I added the Zero to Hero tag and removed the tag from all of my posts.  I also added a new tag for my blog Every Day in 2014 where I am trying write every day based on the WordPress ebook, 365 Writing Prompts.   I think I may have over-committed myself.   There are so many widgets available that my whole page could be nothing but widgets.   Maybe a theme for another blog …..

Blogs that may take me somewhere …..

thLGR7A8KAAs a participant in the Zero to Hero challenge my 9th task is to head a little deeper into the blogosphere and follow five more blogs or topics.    Since I already have enough topics of interest I am going to choose to follow five new people.    After looking over several, these are my choices:



Deb’s 365 Acts of Kindness – Tales of kind gestures.

Three by M.E. – short, sweet, thought provoking poetry.

Self Wonder – discovering your true self.

FavoritesAs a participant in the Zero to Hero challenge my 8th task is to make my “About” page irresistible.  Was I not already irresistible?  I mean my page, was my “About” page not already irresistible?    I updated it a little bit.  What do you think?

Does this say I’m married, from Texas and drink a Bud Light on occasion?

Good, that’s me.

I Worry


This post is inspired by this week’s DPchallenge:  CLIFFHANGER

For this week’s challenge, write a post that will leave readers waiting for more. Breathless with anticipation. On the edges of the seats. Obsessively clicking “refresh,” waiting impatiently for the end of the story. We want to hear audible groans when readers reach the end of your post and see “To be continued…”


I worry
Not that I will never see you again
But that I will.

I worry
Not that I will never touch you again
But that I will.

I worry
Not that I will never kiss you again
But that I will.

I worry
Not that I will never hear your voice again
But that I will.

I worry.

NFL – Divisional Play-Offs


Well, I did pretty well with the Wild Card games, lets see if I can pick the Divisional Champs now.   This is hard, because I am going with both my heart and my head.  Maybe I will get lucky (again).

Game One – New Orleans and Seattle




I would really love for New Orleans to win since I will be In New Orleans soon, but I am a realist and I know that Seattle is the better team.   I think I will have to root for Seattle on this one!

Game Two – Indianapolis and New England




I just can’t do it.  Tom Brady and the Patriots may have the better team but I have morals.  Rooting for the Patriots would be like rooting for the Dallas Cowboys.  Ummm … No.   Going for the Colts here.   Andrew …. show me some luck!

Game Three – San Francisco vs North Carolina




Hmmmm … I really don’t know anything about the Panthers.   As much as I hate to do it, I have to go for the 49ers.  At the end of the weekend, it really doesn’t matter because both the Saints and the Seahawks can beat either team.

Game Four – San Diego vs Denver




Sorry Becky, but this is a no brainer here.  There is simply no way the Chargers can win against Peyton Manning and the Broncos! But now that they have legalized marijuana in Colorado, your boys may still have a good time.

Can I pick ’em or what?

After a weekend of stomach aches and nail biting, I am happy.  Yes, yes, this is happiness.  I have found it.  Until next weekend.
