Batman and Robin [aka my cousins Lennon & Larry] came to visit this summer. We had a superhero sleepover. Pops was the Joker. I shot webs out of my wrists at him, Lennon scorched him with devastating laser beams shot from his eyes, while Larry watched the carnage from the background and pleasantly giggled.
The other night I sang the closing song for Family Home Evening. Here [as closely as Pops could type it] is how my song went:
How could the Father tell the world, In a land called Eden, Adam helped the golf course grow, And the Americans in space, With the aliens and the robots, Called to pinch their biscuits, Their biscuits were stinky, And they smelled their descendants, In the latter days. The astronauts and the aliens, They know the way.
Hearts were touched and testimonies strengthened cause my song really invited the Spirit in.
So, my RSV is gone, I'm home from the hospital, and I'm not on oxygen anymore. Still, no clean bill of health yet...I've caught Olympic Fever. I watched all the action and recreated it in our family room: bobsledding, downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding, skicross, luge – you name it, I did it. And I picked up a few heroes along the way:
Ryan Miller - USA hockey goalie
Shani Davis - USA long track speed skater
J.R. Celski - USA short track speed skater
Louie Vito - USA snowboarder
Shaun "Flying Tomato" White - USA snowboarder
My favorite, though, was this guy: Apolo. Anton. Ohno!
I watched each of his races, and then reenacted them, copying his style as I "skated" my way around and around our leather ottoman coffee table.
Problem was, short track speed skating doesn't really work on carpet, so I convinced Mom and Pops to let me try the real thing.
The recession has hit the Lefty Blog. Unfortunately, I've had to give Tiger Woods, formerly My Main Man, the pink slip.
We here at Lefty are pleased to announce, though, that the recently vacated position has already been filled. It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you all my new Main Man, 5 foot 6 inch Division One College Football Star [and BYU Cougar, of course] Brian Logan.
Mr. Logan is number one among all division one college cornerbacks in passes defended this season, despite his diminutive size. That takes heart, my friends, and for that we love him and think that you will, too.
