On Sunday afternoon during our Ann Arbor weekend, some of us went to see the Michigan/Wisconsin basketball game………..

Guess which one I went to. Hint –  the top and sides of the block “M”  have been chopped off. Great picture anyway. I love that William will consent to be in photos now.  Soooo entertaining!

I want to go back to Michigan, to dear Ann Arbor town.  I want to go back, I gotta go back, to Michigan. I did go back to dear Ann Arbor town last weekend.  Michigan snow, Michigan sledding, Michigan basketball, and these are my Michigan men, decked out for all that snow in Maize and Blue.

Simply standing on the Bosu Ball is not enough of a balancing challenge for William, so he added wheels via the baby’s go-kart. The real challenge will be when he can stand up on the go-kart, but I don’t want to be around for that!

Man of the Day

Lightdance 365, January 18, 2014 – MAN OF THE DAY

There will be a brief diversion from the Word of the Day, to the Man of the Day. Frank received many well-deserved congratulations on his election as a Fellow in the Tennessee Bar Association at last night’s celebration dinner. All of the well-wishers included a reference to his cummerbund and tie. I was beginning to wonder if he had been inducted into the Best Dressed Men of the TBA! Have to add a new  word to the qualities that describe this Fellow: intelligent, funny, responsible, generous, calm, reliable, and now, classy dresser.

Also have to go shopping for a new cummerbund and tie, as what he wore last night will be retired to the Tuxedo Hall of Fame.

Au Revoir to 2013

Lightdance 365 – Au Revoir

Here we are at the last day and the last word prompt of 2013.  I was looking forward to using the word prompt ‘selfie’, because I don’t remember ever taking one before, and this was my chance to end the year on a note of hipness. Now I find out that selfie is not the last word, but the worst word – the most annoying and overused word of 2013! That seems a bit of overstatement, and I insist on retaining a small claim to being oh so with it. Actually, the selfie was fun, especially since Deer Jayne agreed that she would be in the finale photo of 2013 with me. What a great way to end the year, walking at Radnor with my Deer Friend. It was freezing cold, and we were just about the only two walking except for several photographers with professional cameras and formidable lenses. We were all rewarded by a pink sunrise, frost tinged trees and all manner of hip birds and animals who did not care about the freezing temperatures.

The beauty of Radnor Lake and the company of a good friend are only a few reasons for preserving 2013 memories – in a selfie, or whatever else it takes.

Happy New Year!

In These Shoes

Lightdance 365 – IN THESE SHOES

Technically, one would have to say In These Feet, not In These Shoes. At seven, my grandson has learned what many grown people have not, that comfort over style is better for your feet in the long run. I’m proud of him for making good choices, but I am a little concerned about him appearing in public with these on his feet.
