Oh Noooooooo!

I can't believe I got blindsided on Friday by the Ryken men. Jack plays me in ping pong. I'm impressed with his skill. I'm warmed up now for his dad, who gives a good game but closes like Brad Lidge. Another win. That leaves Josh. Halfway through I've got a big lead. And then he chips away, chips away until...Well, let's just say I know how Tiger Woods felt at the PGA Championship.

What'd You Say?

Every now and then I get comments regarding my preaching that I need to speak louder. Well, for those of you having trouble hearing me, let me recommend the services of a Tenth member, Maxine Young. She has her own business providing "a complete range of audiological services" including hearing aid service.
