Sometimes if it's cool in the morning, before the heat of the day
takes hold, I like to go out on the deck with my cup of tea, while I
talk to the dog. Good ol' Shadow usually greets me as soon as he
hears the door knob turn, so I was curious as to why he wasn't there
this particular morning, even though I could hear him very nearby.
Hope your days start with a smile, too. :)

PeeWees and Ponys were held last Saturday, the 24th, in Weeping
All of the teams' coaches voted for the players who would best represent
their teams at the All-Star game - quite an honor for the players, but it
can be quite agonizing for those making the choices.

Coaches of the #1 seeded teams for the season, Elmwood-Murdock for the
PeeWees and Nehawka for the Ponys, loosely managed the players and let
the kids pick the positions they wanted to play and have a good time!
