“Don’t worry about the horse being blind, just load the wagon” John Madden, football coach and NFL announcer.

This is one of my favorite all time quotes. I use it often and people look at me quizzically when I do. In coach speak, it means, just keep plugging and don’t worry about what’s going on around […]

Working Order?

Things don’t always work in the order you want them to.

In an article a few months back, I spoke about my grandson, Madden, and how he was doing with his growing pains. By the time you read this, Madden will have turned 1 and most probably be not just walking but running, I’m sure!

Growing Pains

I have an 8 month old grandson named Madden. While their house is being renovated, Madden and his parents are living with my wife and me.

I may be biased, but as 8 month olds go, I would say Madden is exceptionally well behaved. We can take him out in public and he won’t fuss. He […]
