The events of September 11, 2001 mark a change in my life. On that day my precious father, Stanley R. Hall, was ripped from this world as American Airlines flight 77 plummeted into the Pentagon in Washington DC.  Numb and dazed we walked those first months. FBI agents, memorials, honors given, all a haze of lost senses. As we traveled by car to Virginia that night, the skies were silent, empty and dark. The amazing thing about the night sky without planes, the stars are more notable. It was as though the magnificence of God’s majesty shined the brighter for the lack of man’s influence upon the heavens. Beyond this world, there lies goodness that cannot be touched by evil.

The Best Laid Plans…

    It was still dark when I crept away to my computer this morning to pen my latest Jotting Judi.  I clicked on the small lamp above my desk to get right to work on the idea tumbling around in my brain. Suddenly, I felt a presence in the dimly lit room.  Looking down, I saw Berkley, my two-year-old Schnauzer.  He was sitting at my feet with a longing look in his eyes.  I spoke to him rather gruffly, telling him I was not going to play fetch and turned back to my work.

The Golden Wolves moved to 2-0 for the season with a 42-0 rout of the Guymon Tigers Friday night making for a fitting homecoming game for the packed house in beautiful weather at Memorial Stadium.  The Golden Wolves had lots of offensive fire power, but it was the defense that made the difference in the game against a very talented and speedy Guymon team.

I believe in Miracles

     As the wheels touched the runway at John Wayne International Airport, my heart skipped a beat.  I knew that in just minutes I would be introduced to my newest grandchild, Gabrielle.  Gazing at her face I experienced, as I had sixteen previous times, the complete joy of being a grandmother.  Even as she slept, she curled those tiny fingers around one of mine and I was smitten.  It was, as always, a moment of sheer joy and unexplainable delight.

I am wondering if the State of Texas would ever have a “same sex” marriage law like in California.

Sanford Fritch won the coin toss Friday night to start the first football game of the season, but that was the only thing they won as they deferred to the second half and gave Dalhart the first possession of the game.  Coach Young likes to start out on defense, but it didn’t take Fritch long to regret their decision.  The Wolves took the opening kickoff and Kaleb Grant returned the kick 90 yards for the first score of the game and after the extra point kick by Zinzan Puttick the Wolves led 7-0.
