No, just cabin fever. Friends in Key Largo invited me to dive and then have dinner with them. Too crummy to bother. Nice day today though. Visit any time but no, no support. Remember, I have a kid in private school.

The most popular was sledge hockey with three players from the national team to help out.
OK, what are ringette and sledge hockey? Sounds Canadian to me.

We're planning to head down to Pensacola for the Blue Angels Homecoming Show the first weekend in November! Hopefully, my DW will actually be able to go!
Hoping the same thing for you guys Mike.

Also, need some prayers. Yesterday my boss's father passed away after a week in hospice, and my MiL's best friend lost her husband in a motorcycle wreck on his way home from work.

Not a great couple of days, but working on the farm this afternoon listening to the Boilermakers beat up on the Herd, so I'm definitely in a better mood now than I was this morning.
Sorry to hear that. Thoughts and prayers to your friends and family.

Really jealous of all you guys at WDW right now. Everyone seems to be having a lot of fun. Feel like getting in the car and driving up there. Norm, can you watch the dogs for me?

Both are like hockey and are played in both Canada and the US (as well as other countries)

Ringette is played with a stick (no blade) and a donut-like ring.

Very cool. For years, my dad ran a wheelchair basketball league for paralyzed vets. Tough guys that took those games seriously.

That would have been part of the support plan. I'm to old to celebrate birthdays anymore.

Didn't see the game, but from what I heard, I'm still concerned about our offense being consistent. The defense seemed to play their usual aggressive game and made big plays even though they gave up a lot too.

Purdue's radio crew was extremely impressed by Cato. They sounded like they really thought our D would pretty much just shut him down. He turned it over a few times, but didn't get down and came back strong. That's what you want in a good quarterback.

Hotel Transylvania was pretty funny DD loved it but I think she's more excited to see Frankenweenie next week before we leave. Tommarow is a trip to the big pumpkin patch and redneck fun place. Norm, I fully agree with cash is king, it's true I spend less when I have cash. With DD being very independent a card is going to be better for her and my sanity, but when she gets older cash is gonna be the way to go, I hope everyone's doing good, busy week ahead but never to busy to chat with my fellow dads, an again thank you everyone for all the planning help and advice, it'll def help DDs first trip to be a fun one
