Oh good lord...

I happened to have turned on the Tele because Ellie wants to see the Simpson's Halloween special. So I've got the TIVO reved up and ready to burn a DVD for her and it just so happens I got sucked into the Giant's game.

Somehow I've become something of a Giant's fan... Arrgghhh... I even had more of an armchair understanding of what was going on because of Earl spending years trying to teach me about football.

The Giant's were his team, and he was a fanatic. Last year they took the big game for the first time in years, and I watched the whole thing start to finish. So here I am, cheering on my late husbands team. It was all just kinda surreal for me. I'm pleased to report they took the game tonight, and are 7 and 1 on the season. What scare me is I even know what that means. Dallas, well they got trampled and pretty much have no chance at the big show this year. So they got crushed...

Being "ancient" I grew up watching my hometown team when they first moved here from Dallas and were part of the AFL, and the AFC wasn't dreamt of. They played in the 1st Superbowl, dreamt up and named by the owner and one of the league founders, but lost it. They came back and played again in the 4th and won it, and I've begun to question whether I'll live long enough to see them play in another!

Having read so much of your story, I'm glad you can actually enjoy things that remind you of your past; you are a far better person than I!

One of many reasons I like you!

Yeah, and Vince Lombardi was head coach of the winning team for the very first Superbowl. You're not ancient alan, not hardly! I still remember growing up under Vatican I and full on Catholic Mass in LATIN! I remember buying a loaf of fresh baked bread for a nickel...

I could go on, but I think I'll not date myself any further...

Yeah, I'm healing, it's taking time, but I'm healing. Grieving too finally, and that's hard. My life has been in so much trouble for so long I've only just started really working on getting to the rest of the process. It's kinda bizarre for me.

I'm glad I'm being able to take back my past, the good parts of it. As much pain and trauma as I've been through, it's important to me to save what I can of my past, because it's part of me, who I am.

Thank you for you kind words, I like you too, your comments always bring a smile to my face, and often some laughter to my heart.
