Support for Football Widows

Only about four or five more months until you get your spouses back.

Time to Kick Back and Kick Off

It’s finally in full swing. While is today , a slew of birthdays, and the first installment of the 2011-2012 American Revolution Round Table, yesterday was the home season opener for the New England Patriots, who were highly successful in their defeat of the Miami Dolphins last week and beat the San Diego Chargers this weekend. The Pats' next game is Sunday, Sept. 25 at the Buffalo Bills. Kick off is at 1 p.m. Over the course of the season, many will kick back to watch the games, leaving their mates to kick around looking for something to do.

In keeping with the football widow theme, Dee Funeral Home has made up a batch of handheld schedules of the entire NFL 2011-12 season, so that spouses can prepare their own game-day activities. You can pick up a schedule at any of the local merchants. I happened to get mine at — while I was stocking up on hydration for National Talk Like a Pirate Day.

In the meantime, Aye! Aye! Ye salty dogs, I’ll be back Wednesday, resting up my salty dogs from the long Avon trek in beautiful seaside Santa Barbara.

Hi Maureen, I loved both your posts today, and marvel at how well you pulled off a long-distance posting with such panache. See you when you get back!

Ok, I apparently shouldn't be allowed to write before I've eaten breakfast -- what I MEANT to say was "hear, hear!"
