Still waiting to hear

Nothing new on the Flint Journal front, except some rumblings that big changes are in the works.

Some of my usual sources are a little scarce right now and how can you blame them with the uncertainty of the changes. As soon as I know, you'll know.

If you have good information feel free to contact me at the e-mail address in my profile.

It's tough to be a Lions fan

A friend at work told me this story that he claims is true.

A guy who worked with my friend's brother was really upset that he left two Detroit Lions tickets in his car and someone broke into the vehicle ..... and left two more tickets to the Lions game.

OK, so maybe it's not true.

Spartans roll, Bills idle, Lions jobbed

Not a bad sports weekend here. Spartans rolled over Northwestern and are now 6-1 and bowl eligible already. My new team, the Buffalo Bills, had a bye week so we watched the Lions play Minnesota today.

Actually, the Lions defense looked pretty good. A couple horrible calls by the referees likely stole any chance the Lions had of pulling off a miracle victory, but give them credit for not just rolling up and dying.

Next week the MSU Spartans face a real test, the Ohio State University Buckeyes, so we'll get a better idea of how good, or not good, they really are.

Rumor true, Addisen visits fall party

When we plan our fall party we hope and pray for the perfect night. Cool, but not cold; no rain; no bugs; and no wind. It's a lot to ask in a climate where one or both of those negative conditions are really present.

Last night everything was perfect for a traditional fall party. Even better, little Addisen showed up and wowed the guests and, as always, grandma and grandpa. She is the light of our lives and we see God in her face (sometimes a little of the other in her actions, but we don't dwell on that). This is her first appearance at our fall party, but certainly not her last.

The colors are starting to change (a little late so we're hoping that means a milder winter) but we had fun making smores by the fire, but mostly fun laughing, talking and enjoying our company.

Most of the folks were Anglican, but the kids are from a non-denominational church and our best friends, both Roman Catholics, were on had to make it an ecumenical evening. And my wife served some really good food.

I've attached a couple photos. Next year, come and join us.
