Fly Eagles Fly – Our local pro football team is going to the Superbowl! It’s been so long since their last trip that I didn’t remember all the hoopla. You can’t go anywhere without seeing the logo and hearing the fight song. Every night on the local news channels, there is a clip of some school kids singing it. The weather forecasts always includes temps at the game site too. It’s exciting even for non-football folks. They were such a dark horse and always underdogs. It doesn’t matter if they win (maybe it does), they have brought much excitement to the area.
Concerts! – Tickets for music concerts are harder than ever to buy these days. Big name concerts even in our area sell out in seconds. There are “bots” that buy them and immediately put them on the secondary market for two or three times their original price. It takes the fun out of concerts for sure.
George Foreman – You have to love someone who reinvents themselves successfully over and over again. The famous boxer turned grill salesman is now into women’s shoes (not literally – at least that I know). I don’t know if his name has the same appeal for shoes but you never know!
Groundhog Day – Friday was Groundhog Day. That’s when the rodent comes out from hibernation (allegedly) and predicts when spring will come. It’s an old tradition in my area and just another reason for celebration during the long, cold winter! Next up is fasnacht day when we gorge ourselves with donuts before lent. We’ll use any excuse to party on.
Room renovation – The new chair is set up, wall and carpet repaired. We still plan to rework another cabinet in the room to make it feel more open and roomy. So far all good!
So how was your week?
