SUPER BOWL SUNDAY


FUNNY HOW SUPER BOWL SUNDAY HAS BECOME AN UNOFFICIAL NATIONAL HOLIDAY. THE TIMING IS PERFECT, RIGHT BETWEEN NEW YEAR'S EVE AND SPRING, AND AT THE HEIGHT OF CABIN FEVER.

THOSE OTHER HOLIDAYS, LIKE MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY, AND PRESIDENTS DAY, ( SCREW VALENTINES DAY) JUST DON'T CUT IT. THE POST OFFICE AND BANKS ARE CLOSED, FURNITURE IS ON SALE, BUT SUPER BOWL SUNDAY IS A HOLIDAY TO EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY. I THINK IT'S GREAT !!


IT'S GOOD FOR THE CASINO BUSINESS, AS FOLKS LOVE TO BET ON THE OUTCOME, AND JUST THINK ABOUT THE FOOD CONSUMED, BOTH IN STORE SHOPPING FOR PARTIES, AND TAKE OUT.

IT'S BEEN AN ODD YEAR FOR MARY AND I, FIRST WORKING FOUR DAYS A WEEK LAST SUMMER WHILE AT LAKE TAHOE, THEN HAVING MY MOTHER (FAMILY) AROUND AT CHRISTMAS, AND CHRISTMAS EVE OFF, TAKING A WEEK "OFF" DURING THE WINTER FOR VEGAS 80, AND NOW, SUPER BOWL SUNDAY OFF.

WHAT THE HELL, LET'S NOT QUESTION OUR GOOD LUCK FOR A CHANGE! WE SPENT THE PRE-GAME VISITING MY MOTHER WITH A QUICK SHOPPING TRIP, AND BEER IN LAUGHLIN, AND THEN GOT BACK IN TIME TO WATCH THE FIRST HALF OVER COCKTAILS WITH THE NEIGHBORS, STEVE AND MERYL, IN CAMP.




HERE WE ARE IN THE NEIGHBOR'S MOTORHOME ENJOYING CHICKEN WINGS AND THE SUPER BOWL GAME.

THE SECOND HALF FOUND MARY DOING WHAT SHE ENJOYS, AND DOES BEST, COOKING IN CAMP.



SO WE'RE IN NEVADA, DID I BET ON THE SUPER BOWL? NO I DIDN'T, BUT MARY HAD BALLS ENOUGH TO BET ON THE GIANTS TO WIN, STRAIGHT TICKET, NO POINTS.



WAIT, WAIT ..... WHAT ABOUT THAT NEW AVATAR AT THE TOP?

WELL, IT COULD BE REX IN HIS YOUNGEST DAYS, BUT ACTUALLY IT'S A NEW PHOTO OF MY GRANDSON, EDDIE, AND I THINK HE LOOKS LIKE HIS GRANDPA MIKE.
