Well, what do you know... The Cardinals pulled it out last night to win 5 - 4 in Game 4 of the World Series. The Cardinals are 1 win away from winning the World Series for the first time in 24 years. Tonight, weather permitting, the Cardinals will put Weaver on the mound..... GO CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In keeping with the Duckmaster Uniforms... I am going to stick with what I have for the past two days... wooooooooooooooo

Ann's the ref, Mary's on first, Turn's on second, and I'm on third leading off to score the run!!!! 1 step, 2 steps, 3 steps... I'm going.... going to steal home... oh yesh I am.... can't ya'll see us sliding into base with the uniforms... ;-)

Hoping that Bruno will help us out when we do WIN the Fall Classic, cause we are going to have to have some protection from the Duck ... I have found the perfect Duckmaster Uniform for us.... What do you think girls?

It's only 4 days to Halloween ya'll.... let's see what I can come up with today....

Some say it was the Celts who began the practice of trick-or-treating by offering to buy off evil people with treats before they turned on them with tricks. Others say it started with the Druids, Celtic priests who begged for favors in exchange for protection of souls, or with the Irish peasants, who begged for "soul cakes." It was the English who took it a step further -- they put on masks and costumes as they begged for treats, and if their treats were not forthcoming, they played tricks.
The tradition has gone through many changes. Questions of the safety of treats and of visiting unfamiliar homes have resulted in some parents discontinuing trick-or-treating, preferring instead to keep the celebrations at home. But in many communities, trick-or-treating is still a favorite tradition.

Did you ever have this type of drug problem? I did.....

An old friend read that a methamphetamine lab had been found in an oldfarmhouse in the adjoining county, and he asked me a rhetorical question.

''Why didn't we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?''

I replied: "I had a drug problem when I was young :

"I was drug to church on Sunday mornings. I was drug to church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather.

I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults. I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I didn't put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.

I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a curse. I was drug out to pull weeds in Mom's garden and flower beds and cockleburs out of Dad's fields.

I was drug to the homes of family, friends, and neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline, or chop some firewood.

Those ' drugs ' are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin.

If today's children had this kind of drug problem, America would be a better place.
