our weather is changing as I type...
a cold front is blowing in...
we were in the 90's yesterday....
the high is gonna be in the low 50's tomorrow...
Big Changes...
 Our Texas Rangers have one last shot at the play offs...
it's not looking so good...
they are down by one run...
it could turn around...
even if it doesn't they played a good season...
you can't win them all...
I know no one likes to loose...
but being a good sport about...sure makes a difference...
no excuses...it's just the way it is...
 unfortunately I think being a good loser has been lost...
too many throw fits...or blame others...
instead of just saying...hey I lost...
hey I did my best...but didn't win...
hey I should have been more prepared...
congratulations to the winner....
 
it was the altitude...not able to use my teleprompter...
I wasn't treated fairly....
There's always a winner...always a looser...
but there is sure a big difference...
between a graceful looser...
and a spoilt brat not my fault...looser...
I saw a baseball player throw a bat tonight..
because he struck out...
I saw a golfer chunk his club...
because he hit a bad shot...
Loosing is not the end of the world...
you can always learn a lesson from each loss...
which in turn makes you a winner...

we tend to think very highly of ourselves these days and it is tough to be gracious. sad.

send cold here please, love that fence shot, agree on the bad losers, i see kids learning that it is all about winning and there is always a loser so they need to know there is always a winner and a loser and either one is ok. the little league games are horrible now, with the parents fighting with each other.

We have cooled off a lot also. Your words ring true, I agree.

I love that fence, but it really should have flowers to go with it! I love the look of flowers with peeling paint...
As for the sore losers - I think TV has let us see a lot more of them, and some people are thinking it is acceptable.
