Ludlow: Let’s hope Packers avoid injury bug this season
It's hard to believe that football season is back already. Where did the summer go? All I know is that it sure went fast.
How will the Green Bay Packers' season go? That is the question. I heard the other day that three defensive players already were injured early in training camp. So it seems to be starting already.
At least Aaron Rodgers is healthy and I sincerely hope he stays that way. We don't need a repeat of last year, when he missed quite a few games during the season.
I guess we just have to wait and see what happens, since I don't have a crystal ball. But I will cross my fingers that the Pack will have a great season. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
► It is nice to see the Milwaukee Brewers having a pretty good season. I don't watch a lot of baseball, but have seen a few games on the tube this summer and the Brew Crew is competitive in most of its games, which is a pleasant change.
► As I'm writing this, I have Dr. Phil on television and sometimes I have to wonder where he finds the people he has on his show. There are some real dandies. I guess I just live a exceptionally boring life.
► I found some cute quotes on a website called the The Funny Beaver. Here are some of them.
There are five types of people you want to surround yourself with: The inspired, the passionate, the motivated, the grateful and the open-minded. They will be good for you.
I especially liked this one — Never, ever get rid of the desire to climb a tree or run through the sprinklers.
(Except for the fact I'm at an age where I don't run anywhere any more and I don't dare try to climb any trees. But I used to when I was a kid. I guess I was the typical tomboy.)
Here's a quote I've heard all my life and I don't know where it originated — Life is short, eat dessert first.
A few more: Knowing when to walk away is wisdom. Being able to is courage. Walking away with your head held high is dignity.
If it was easy, would it be worth it?
Every day life begins to sparkle when we realize our friends are the glitter.
Be patient with yourself. Nothing is nature blooms all year long.
And, last but not least — If there''s a slight chance at getting something that will make you happy, risk it. Life is too short and happiness is too rare.
With that, I will wish all the readers to have a wonderful week and stay healthy.
