Ludlow: Wishing area teams luck in tournaments
Last week, I wrote about tripping and falling over my bowling bag and ball at the Kewaunee Bowl. Well, I am happy to report that my right knee, which absorbed the brunt of that fall, is feeling much better these days and I didn’t miss any bowling because of it. Plus, I’m really trying to watch where I walk now. But at my age, it’s hard to change. I’m trying though.
March Madness is in full swing this week, with the NCAA tournament getting underway along with the high school boys state tournament action. There will be a lot of interesting basketball games to watch this weekend and beyond. Hopefully, the Wisconsin Badgers and Marquette will have a lot of success. The games are more fun to watch if state teams are playing well in the tournament.
Old Man Winter returned for a curtain call early this week and dumped several inches of the white stuff on us again. He just doesn’t know when to quit. I am really tired of looking at snow and am ready to see some green grass for a change. However, I was talking to a friend in Two Rivers who said they received nine or 10 inches in that last dump, which was more than we got. So I guess we can be thankful for that.
According to the weather experts, temperatures will improve this weekend. They are predicting a high of around 50 degrees for Monday. I hope they’re right for a change. And higher temperatures will definitely help the snow to disappear. I am starting to think about golf, but that is several weeks off yet. We start thinking about it in March but usually can’t get out there until May, and that’s if we’re lucky. When you live near Lake Michigan, you never know. That “cooler by the lake” saying really applies to this area in the spring.
I found this story on the internet today under the heading, “Never judge your neighbor’s laundry skills”. It goes like this. A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging her laundry outside. “That laundry is not very clean,” she says. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.” Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her laundry to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About a month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, “Look, she has finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder how that happened?” The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”
Have a great week everyone, and may your windows always be clean.
