Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

The Patriots Lost!

The New England Patriots lost their championship game. Being a Minnesota Vikings fan since my youth, I am not crushed by this news. However, I do know people that are probably having a tough time getting out of bed this morning. After four years on top of the AFC East and three Super Bowl wins since 2000, the Patriots now have the opportunity to practice humility, something all of us need occasionally.

I read in the newspaper that Super Bowl XLI will be the first time two African-American coaches will be on the sidelines. Interesting statistic. I do plan to watch the game, although I am unsure whom to support. As a Vikings fan, I am (by definition) NOT a Bears fan. I guess that leaves the Indianapolis Colts.

See you at the game!
