THERE STILL IS/R...PLENTY 2 READ!/U BETCHA!/MISSED PICTURES?


CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?  YES, I CAN.  I BELIEVE THE WORD THE TWINS USE IS 'BELIEVE.' IT'S A VERY POSITIVE WORD.(SOME MAY SAY, 'I HAVE FAITH THAT THEY WILL DO THEIR (09) BEST.')...WHEN YOU SAY 'I THINK' OR...I 'HOPE'..(IT IS ONE OF THOSE 'IFFY' WORDS.  HOPE IS A NICE WORD...BUT....EXAMPLE:  'I HOPE YOU WIN TODAY....I THINK THEY WILL WIN...  I THINK WE HAVE A CHANCE....MAYBE, I HOPE SO.)  CHANGE THOSE STATEMENTS TO SOMETHING LIKE THIS:  'BOY, WASN'T THAT A GREAT GAME, LAST NIGHT...I JUST HAD THIS 'FEELING' THAT THEY WOULD COME THROUGH!'...'THAT WAS A REAL 'NAIL-BITER' IN THAT 11TH INNING WHEN DETROIT HAD THE BASES LOADED AND ONE OUT...AND WE GOT THAT DOUBLE PLAY!'...I KNEW WE COULD DO IT...I JUST KNEW IT!'  I DECIDED TO WATCH THIS PLAYOFF GAME LAST NIGHT AFTER THE VIKINGS, THE NIGHT BEFORE,  WON THEIR FOURTH IN A ROW...(IMAGINE...BOTH FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL AT THE TOP OF THEIR GAMES!)  KNOWING THAT ON LABOR DAY THE TWINS WERE BEHIND BY SEVEN GAMES...AND WITH THAT GREAT 'TEAMWORK,'...MINNESOTA WAS NOW IN THE PLAYOFF GAME AGAINST DETROIT.  SUPPORT..WE ALL NEED IT..(IN THESE ECONOMIC TIMES  ...WE NEED THE SUPPORT OF OUR FRIENDS..POSITIVE SUPPORT...UPLIFTING SUPPORT...CARING   SUPPORT..STIR THAT FIRE WITHIN YOU, SUPPORT)..SO....TALK ABOUT...SUPPORT??  55,000+ FANS WERE THERE FOR THOSE TWINS...AND THEY KNEW IT..AND THEY PLAYED THEIR HEARTS, OUT!...( I KNOW THE GUY ON THIRD BASE...IN THE 11TH INNING..LEARNED HIS LESSON AND WILL PROBABLY NEVER 'LEAD OFF' THAT MUCH AGAIN!)  IT WAS SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH THAT GUY SLIDE ACROSS FOR THE WINNING RUN...THE ERUPTION OF THOSE FANS...THE JOY..THE LAUGHTER...THE HAPPINESS..THE SMILES..(KEEP THAT MOMENT...IN YOUR HEART...ALWAYS REMEMBER IT!)...GUYS HAVING FUN...EXCITEMENT AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL!..WORKING TOGETHER AS A TEAM...WITH A GOAL.  SO, ENJOY THESE MOMENTS AND CONTINUE TO HAVE THEM IN YOUR OWN LIFE..STAY POSITIVE...SURE WE ARE 0-7 AGAINST THE YANKEES...THAT'S THE PAST ...AND WE ALL LOVE UPSETS!!...SO AFTER THAT DESERVED CELEBRATION LAST NIGHT..BY BOTH THE TEAM AND THEIR FANS...WATCH THAT GAME TODAY...AND CHEER THOSE TWINS ON!....'KEEP THE EXCITEMENT YOU FEEL RIGHT NOW...THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE!'....IT'S YOUR CHOICE.  CE.....UPDATE ON THE YANKEES GAME, LAST NIGHT.  ACCEPT THE LOSS AND AS THAT OLD SONG SAYS...'PICK YOURSELF UP...DUST YOURSELF OFF..AND START ALL OVER..AGAIN!!'  IT'S OVER...THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT...SO CONCENTRATE ON THE GAME, TODAY..(THURSDAY)...THEY WON....YOU LOST....SOME OF US HAVE SUCH A PROBLEM WITH 'LETTING GO OF THE PAST'...NO AMOUNT OF TALKING OR RE-HASHING IS GOING TO DO YOU ANY GOOD.....IT MIGHT EVEN DEPRESS, YOU.  SO, START A FRESH DAY...ENJOY THIS DAY, AND LOOK FORWARD TO TOMORROW.  I SEE THIS ALL THE TIME IN TENNIS.(SOMEONE WILL MAKE A BAD SHOT, AND IT IS ON THEIR MIND FOR THE NEXT THREE SHOTS!  OR THEY DOUBLE FAULT AND THEN SAY 'I SUPPOSE I'LL DOUBLE FAULT, AGAIN'..AND THEY DO AND THEN THEY SAY 'I KNEW I WOULD!'  MENTAL TENNIS..IT CAN'T BE TAUGHT  (IMMEDIATELY..FORGET IT!)..I LOVE COMPETITION...THE ONLY TIME I WILL SHOW IT IS ON THE TENNIS COURT.  ( I NEVER AM COMPETITIVE WITH MY JEWELRY, FOR I FEEL THERE IS ROOM FOR ALL OF US!)..NOW....JUST YESTERDAY I GOT AN ENTRY BLANK FOR THE SCOTTSDALE OPEN THAT WILL BE HELD THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 7TH.  AND...I WILL ENTER...THIS WILL BE MY THIRD CONSECUTIVE TIME AND I ALWAYS HAVE SUCH FUN.  WHEN YOU LOVE A SPORT AS MUCH AS I DO TENNIS...YOU KEEP PLAYING..(YOU JUST HAVE TO ENTER AN OLDER SECTION!)...HMMMM THAT GIVES ME TWO MONTHS TO PREPARE...I CAN DO THIS...I JUST KNOW I CAN!  AGE IS JUST A NUMBER...THAT'S ALL.  I AM ON MY SOAPBOX....AGAIN, BUT I HAVE A FUNNY TRUE STORY...THAT I REALLY HAVE TO LAUGH, ABOUT! (IF YOU CANNOT LAUGH AT SOME OF THE STUPID THINGS YOU DO....YOU NEED TO 'LIGHTEN UP!) ...ANYWAY...I WAS SITTING IN THE PHOENIX POST OFFICE...WITH A PACKAGE TO MAIL..ABOUT 5 YEARS AGO..A GROUP OF PHRIENDS PHOREVER HAD JUST HAD A GET-TOGETHER....(TALK ABOUT BEING...UPTIGHT)...AND THE WOMAN, SITTING NEXT TO ME, ASKED...'ARE YOU 65?'...(THIS IS WHAT WENT THROUGH MY MIND..'THAT'S A LOT OF NERVE...HER ASKING MY AGE!'  I DON'T EVEN KNOW THIS WOMAN..I'M ONLY 63..DON'T TELL ME SHE THINKS I AM 65!  I SURE DON'T THINK  I LOOK 65!) AND IMMEDIATELY...IN A VERY SARCASTIC...ANGRY VOICE..LOOKING STRAIGHT INTO HER EYES...I SAID,...'I AM NOT!!!'....AND THEN I FELT LIKE A 'PUPPY' WITH HIS TAIL BETWEEN HIS LEGS, WHEN SHE SAID...'ARE YOU NUMBER 65?'...AND THERE IT WAS....LIT UP IN ALL IT'S GLORY...FOR EVERYONE TO SEE...#65!..I IMMEDIATELY...LAUGHED...AND APOLOGIZED TO HER AND TRIED TO EXPLAIN MYSELF OUT OF THIS ONE!  WE, WOMEN ARE SO PROTECTIVE OF OUR AGES...WE DON'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW. NOW...REALLY...IF YOU HAVE...SAY A 25 YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER...IT ISN'T TOO DIFFICULT TO DO THE MATH...YOU MUST BE IN YOUR FORTIES....UNLESS, OF COURSE....YOU HAD HER WHEN YOU WERE 12 AND THAT WOULD PUT YOU IN YOUR THIRTIES...SO JUST...LET IT GO...EVER WATCH SMALL CHILDREN IN A STORE WHEN THEY SEE ANOTHER CHILD?..'HI...I'M 4..HOW OLD ARE YOU?..I'M 6 1/2! ' THEY DON'T CARE...DO YOU ALSO NOTICE THAT WHEN YOU ARE YOUNGER YOU ALWAYS ADD THAT 1/2...BUT WHEN YOU GET OLDER...YOU SEEM TO FORGET THAT.  ONE DAY WHEN I HAVE A LOT OF
'NERVE'..I AM GOING TO GO UP TO SOME WOMAN AND SAY...'HI.......I'M 68 1/2...HOW OLD ARE YOU?'  HER REACTION WOULD BE 'PRICELESS.'(AND THEN TAKE HER PICTURE!...AND GIVE HER A NECKLACE OR A MAGNET)..I WILL WRITE IT DOWN...IF I EVER DO. SO...TODAY...THE TWINS(DAVID)..FACE GOLIATH  (YANKEES)...UPSET! UPSET! UPSET!  CE...'OOPS...I JUST FOUND A MISTAKE'.(THE GAME IS FRIDAY)...'I HARDLY EVER MAKE A MISTAKE..HMMMMM..HEH...HEH'  MAYBE IF MORE (MEN ESPECIALLY...AND YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE!) WOULD JUST ADMIT IT...COME CLEAN..IT WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER!  THEY SHOULD HAVE LEARNED...BY NOW...TO ...JUST SAY..'YES...IT IS TRUE...I MADE A MISTAKE...I AM SORRY!'...( I WILL GIVE LETTERMAN, CREDIT..HERE.)...EVEN BACK IN HISTORY..WHEN GROVER CLEVELAND WAS ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL..IT WAS RUMORED THAT HE HAD A CHILD..THIS IS WHAT WAS SAID:  'MA!..MA!...WHERE'S MY PA?...GONE TO THE WHITE HOUSE..HA!..HA!..HA!.'  AND...HE ADMITTED IT,THAT ..YES...IT WAS HIS CHILD...BABY RUTH...(EVER WONDER HOW THEY CHOSE THAT NAME FOR A CANDY BAR?...NOW YOU KNOW.) 'I DIDN'T DO IT...HE DID....WE DON'T LIKE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ERRORS/MISTAKES.  OWN UP TO IT...'IT IS MY MISTAKE...AND I DID IT!...DON'T GO BLAMING SOMEONE ELSE...BE HONEST...'HONESTY ..REALLY IS THE BEST POLICY'..( I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER..NOW..THAT I HAVE ADMITTED MY MISTAKE!)..CE
