The lacrosse season is over. After three seasons not only do I understand the sport a little more but it is quickly becoming a favorite.

The lacrosse ball is approximately the size of a tennis ball but much harder. A couple of times this year we had to protect ourselves from either a missed ball or a player and stick coming right at us. And again, I am amazed at how the players get whacked hard with those sticks and just keep on going. Their legs and arms must be covered with bruises and welts.

Congratulations to the Duke and his high school team for a fine year. I'm already looking forward to next year when you will find me sitting on the sidelines cheering.

My tool chest is filled with screw drivers with "severe road rash." We must "buy" them at the same place.

You'll have to let me know when next season starts - it would be fun to learn about the game. It looks like they're having a great time and you've got some great shots.

I can imagine your excitement over that one and every time I think about you stopping on the way home from the camera club to pick up the two pennies, I smile.

Have a great day, my friend!

Which player belongs to the Duchess?

Ooooh, Athena, are you are being snarky? I don't know where you learned to be that way, but stop it right now.
