A Day Of Memories

It was a day of sharing memories and creating memories as my niece and I went to the University of Michigan stadium to watch Manchester United play Liverpool FC in the International Champions Cup. Back in the 90s, trips to Ann Arbor to watch the University of Michigan football team were a yearly event and…

Super Bowl Sunday

Up until Friday today was going to be all about the snacks and commercials, but I think after watching two eagles at the park on Friday that it was a sign that the Eagles are going to beat the Patriots today. I was watching the eagle in the tree when another that had been out…
