Barb Ludlow: Winter doldrums are setting in
It’s that time of the year again, when people are inside, looking out and wishing for warmer weather.
I was at bowling last Tuesday morning and several gals were talking about golf and wishing we could be out there. I definitely agreed. Right now, all we can do is wish.
I do think it’s time for the Kewaunee Ladies Golf League to have a meeting. We usually do meet in February for dinner and to discuss when to have the annual spring organizational meeting. It’s been dubbed the “meeting to have a meeting” and is basically an excuse to go out for dinner, drinks and talk about our favorite sport.
We’ll probably discuss it at bowling this week, and I’ll report on the decision next week. Stay tuned.
Well, Super Bowl participants have been determined. The Broncos and the Panthers will battle it out Feb. 7 in the San Francisco Bay area. I think the NFC Panthers will take home the Lombardi Trophy. In my opinion, the Broncos don’t have enough fire power to beat them.
Peyton Manning is good, but he is almost 40 and his age is beginning to show. Whereas Cam Newton, the Panthers quarterback, is a talented young guy with the world ahead of him. He’s arrogant and brash, but he’s also pretty good at what he does and has a great surrounding cast.
My predictions could be way off, however; time will tell. I just hope it’s a good, competitive game.
I read some funnies on Facebook the other day and thought I’d share some of them with my readers.
On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, “The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.”
I’ll bet that teacher thought, oh-oh, this could be a challenge.
And then there’s this one: A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle, the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. The little girl picked up the receiver and said, “Mommy can’t come to the phone to talk to you right now. She’s hitting the bottle.”
A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women’s locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, “What’s the matter? Haven’t you ever seen a little boy before?”
And finally: A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, “Daddy, you shouldn’t wear that suit. You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.”
Have a good week, everyone.
