Spring break is over and now we're back to school for about 8 weeks and it will all be over for another year.  Can't believe how fast this year has gone by.

Dick and I and my sister, Jerene DeBono went to Dodge City on Saturday.  We did a little gambling and then met our son Mark, to get our grandson Kyle, who had been with his folks over Spring break.  Our granddaughter Breeanna, who is on Spring break this week, decided to come home with us.  We'll meet her dad next weekend so she can return home.  The house is no longer quiet!

There's something so satisfying about getting out of bed when the world is still dark and quiet and resting. Making the coffee gives us time to scratch and think. Well, scratch, anyway. Most of that thinking will start after about the third cup of coffee.

"God makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous." Matthew 5:45

State Basketball was on the minds of many folk last week-end. Our Lady Eagles played three days in the State meet. Our neighbors, the Kit Carson Girls are the State Champions as well as the Holly boys are the Champions. The Kit Carson Boys team won over Fleming Saturday for third place.

The Lamar girls are also State Champions. They are coached by Erik Melgosa an Eads graduate.

"Kids got the kites up this morning down at the schoolyard," Dud said, slipping into his chair and flipping his coffee mug to the upright and fillable position in one smooth move.

Doc nodded and spread jam on his toast. He likes grape.

"Any special shapes this year?"

"Didn't see any," Dud said. "Same old diamond shapes, mostly."

"Now back when I was a kid," Herb chimed in, "we had box kites, too. Sometimes..."

Can you believe that we will be turning our clocks ahead next Sunday to Daylight Savings Time and Spring is just a couple weeks away.

We've already had quite a few Spring days, hope we don't have too many wintry days come Spring.

This Saturday is special to me, because for one day each year, I get to let the years fly behind me and become someone else. Back on this special Saturday in 1973, you see, I was Number 37. I had the Number 37 bib pinned on my parka that early morning at the baseball diamond in Anchorage, and I was just one of many dog mushers starting the very first Iditarod Dogsled Race to Nome.
