    Default Halloween Bilge Sweetener

    Zoe the Wonder Girl showing her true colors. And we also found out my son and daughter-in-law are moving back to Minnesota; we're beyond elated!

    Wow, that’s a determined look! Watch out! We had a few dozen little ones come by tonight. Thank goodness they didn’t leave too much candy leftover for us.

    Sweet.

    Congrats on your son moving home. That's a real gift; I'm happy for you but a little jealous.

    Yes... he's a little monster. Has been in the 85th thru 90th percentile for length & weight since birth. I'm just champing at the bit for him to grow up... and be able to support his grandparents. Waddya think... NBA or NFL??? <G>

    Yup, cute kid, David. Don't get to excited about the size potential, though. Our daughter was in the 95th percentile for length and 85th - 90th for weight for her first year. She is now 26 and topped out at 5'-4" tall. She wouldn't want me to publish her weight, but given that she trains rigorously for her participation in women's rugby, she has earned the right to be a bit more than lightweight.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    I didn't get a picture, but my favorite costume downtown Ballard last night was a little kid on his dad's shoulders and in the cockpit of a large home made cardboard airplane that was around his dad's head and shoulders. The dad was leaning and swooping and turning and the kid was flying the airplane high above it all, and grinning ear to ear.

    Sounds like the right size and shape for a rake. What? Like Iím going to use the other name for that position to describe a lovely young lady I donít know in public with uniformed people about?

    I like rugby. Have several friends that played.

    Peace,

    Be careful what you say, Rob - she might come looking for you... <grin>

    And yes, she started on the team as a hooker, and still occasionally plays that position.

    Ha! Would she were a bit taller, then I’d say prop, for sure. Small, powerful, fast people make special forwards, though, and I figured your kid was smart enough to play rake.

    See, I know a 17 year old kid 6’7” tall and 270+ pounds. Nobody would ever mistake him for a hooker. Hehe.

    Me? Too tall, thin, and slow for rugby. Not one place on the field I can perform well, except on the sidelines cheering.

    Please, please, please tell her not to come looking for trouble. I’m slow and old and mean. Hehe.
    Fresno State does have a ladies rugby club, though, so if she does come, she could get a good workout in right down the street. They practice at a school near us and we often go watch.

    Peace,
    Robert

    With apologies to the OP for thread drift, a final rugby comment:

    Gwyn's boyfriend is also a rugby player, and was jubilant about just making the Premier team in his division in Vancouver last month. Last Saturday while in a scrum at practice something went wrong, and he ruptured his Achilles tendon. Complete sever. He is in surgery today to repair it, but his time playing rugby is in the past now. He will be seriously bummed out over this, as rugby was more of a lifestyle than a game for him. Gwyn is pretty upset, as she is presently on contract in Ottawa, a couple of thousand miles away from her honey.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    My little sweetie isn't very little anymore, but she still does Hallowe'en. This is her two years ago, dressed as the internet meme, Grumpy Cat:

    Quite the likeness, eh? She said she had a headache by the end of the evening from the mask, not the beer.

    as rugby was more of a lifestyle than a game for him.
    As long as he can still hang out with the guys, drink beer, and sing rude songs, he can probably maintain his lifestyle. Maybe he can get in on the organizing end, instead of the playing end of the organization.

    Good friend's son had something similar happen to him just as he was to place in a professional soccer league in Europe. He made lemonade and has been an excellent coach and (last I looked) loved his life.

    **** happens for a reason, most times... just gotta see the path.

    Here's another of the virtual costumes his mom created for him, while deciding what he should actually wear.

    When you decide Halloween morning you want to be a pirate, your dad makes you a sword and a hat, Yo!
    I mean, Yar!
