  1. Indian Summer here in Brownstown, IN.....78 degrees and the soy beans are being picked today. The field is gorgeous!! Octoberfest this weekend, and the leaves are getting prettier by the day. I wish I had a good camera to share nature's beauty!!

      Sounds like you got plenty done.....all I did was walk the dog after the soybeans were picked. Air quality....kept us inside....with the wind and dust.

      Didnt know you lived in Brownstown, the dirt track there is one that I really want to catch a race at. My father in law goes there often and hopefully I`ll make it to a race there someday..keep saying "next year" and hasnt happened..maybe "next year"..lol

      The fairgrounds track is great, and the fast banks of historic Salem just south....best time to go is at Fair time...Friday night race....big crowd...great food. Worth the trip SOMDColtsfan.

      Serious analysis indeed Brent. HA! HA! SW1 is looking forward to reading your upcoming football evaluation buddy. :) Your wife radiogirl rocks BTW! :)

      I tried to be quiet...hard to do when techniques go awry. I have a much better feeling on who will be cut now.

      Thanks SW! We had a great time! Brent was Mr. Analyzer yesterday! Fun hearing his take on things. I'm learning a lot about football from him; particularly our great team!

  3. Little League baseball upon us. Nice day to practice with snow flurries and 35!! Nick...get ready buddy...time to start hitting the baseball this year!! :)

      BrentMc11

      SW: It is actually frustrating just how strong Nick is. He knows he can hit it a mile. Getting him to cut down his swing..hard at 10. We will get there.

      100GFB: Love it: Willie Keeler.

    3. alawai

      alawai

      It's all about contact. Like you said he may be trying too hard during or swinging too hard during games and some may have the tendency to close their eyes when swinging/trying too hard.

      awe! congrats! My nephew just proposed and he had been looking at buying a ring. But my sister took diamonds out of my grandmas wedding ring and two earrings of her own and gave them to him to have a setting made. The ring is beautiful and has family history, she is so happy........and they didn't spend all that money

      Isn't that the day that the world is supposed to end? Sounds perfect for a wedding - might make the day easier to remember. lol "Oh yeah, it's the anniversary of the day the world ended, I'd better get a gift".

      On the other hand, if you wait until the 22nd you might get a bargain on a reception hall.
