The day honors Leif Erikson, the Norse explorer who brought the first Europeans known to have set foot in North America. Leif Erikson left the European continent in 999 and set foot in America in the year 1,000.
Went to our first ATA tournament since March. Since he earned his Black Belt he has been uncertain on his new set of opponents. These folks are Black Belts for Pete's sake. It took a considerable amount of push, mostly from his teacher to get back out there and compete. Unsure, he only signed up for three events instead of the usual 7 or 8. SO we only came home with THREE FIRST PLACES MEDALS! Onwards and upwards. Looking forward to the next tourny in November. Tried to post the videos for Sparring but they are too much for the blog. Waaa,
Great news from friend and neighbor Rob. He was given the all clear from his Doc at his Friday meet. Can't say how glad we were to hear that bit of
good great news.
Don't forget about Barktoberfest this weekend. Not that you could with all the signs around.
It's 65 outside right now. Damn that feels nice doesn't it?
So, the so called Republican leaders are calling for the Donald to drop out of the race. He talked like a man to another man in a rolling condo some 10+ years ago. So what. I think you self described "leaders" of the GOP need to pull your collective head out of your bass fiddle sized ass and search for a reality break. It's time to put on your big boy pants and man the fuck up or sit down and shut the hell up. He's the one in the race not you. Thats apparently obvious to everyone but you crybabies. In case you punkin' heads haven't been paying attention he's the man we want, not your lame asses. If the GOP had a pair of balls among them it might be a different political picture. But you don't and it's not. And there is no one to blame but yourselves. Like that would ever happen. There would have to be a spine involved so you're out. And to all who are "offended", Call your mommy. Odds are she'll tell you to butch up too.
