Basketball season again...

Yes, that is right it is basketball season again for my youngest daughter. They have played two games this week. The first game they won 32-12...the game was a good injuries. The younger group of kids 3 and 4 th graders won their game that night as well , it was like 40 to 0 and the 5and 6th grade boys won their game , I dont know the score of that game but the other team didn`t score except for once.
Last night`s game was lost by the girls , dont know if the boys won or not we left after my daughter played. Their was a injury to one of the girls last night to do with her ankle was swelling and she was out for the last quarter of the daughter sprained her finger as it was hurting this morning....that group of girls we played last night was big to compared to our girls.

We might play one game next week, don`t know as of yet.

my new addiction..

ok, i know what you think an addiction in the new year, well actually it started after Christmas. I got a Starsky and Hutch movie for Christmas and ......I thought I wonder if you could watch the old episodes on the youtube. My girls and hubby are always watching some video or other on youtube. My hubby used to watch a cable show on their( we do not have sat or cable). So, I searched on youtube and low and behold their is episodes on there of one of my favorite shows from the 70` I have been watching how things have changed since that show....the clothes and the way cop shows look today...Yes I do admit I am a child of the 70s..bellbottoms, disco. My youngest has even watched alittle of one with me.....those were the days when we didn`t have to screen what the kids watch and the shows didn`t talk like they do today.....just saying.
Paul micheal Glaser and David Soul were very good actors and you could tell that they enjoyed what they did and had fun on that show...the clothes, the music, that car...memories take me back.....

well Everyone have a good day, I am going to youtube.....
