  1. Makes me think about the things we do while never thinking it could be hurting us. CTE is very tragic and sad. And then the thing where we get concussions in our youth or after by accidents and falls. Those things are very negative things if you want healthy longevity. It makes me wonder out loud about the things I might be doing that are bad for my long term health, mentally, emotionally and physically. I appreciate Sylvia telling stories the way she does. I have never tired of the satire, the humor and the insights the way she writes. Thank you Sylvia. You are a treasure to all of us out here.

  2. When you see Barbara and Myrna, ask them to get their husbands to invite me and a couple of my tailgate crew up to their skybox during a game at Sanford! They will all surely enjoy my wit, my charm, and my modesty. GO DAWGS!
