Good Morning . . .

 

If you lose your job, your marriage, and your mind all in one week, try to lose your mind first, because then the other stuff won't matter that much.

 

Hello everyone - we're just one week away until the 2007 baseball season officially begins!  Who's your team and how do you think they'll do?  Drop me a line if you have the chance . . .

WEIRD NEWS*

Thinning the Herd

A 50-year-old man fell through the ice at Donner Lake near Truckee, Calif., in February and drowned. Police said he was ice-skating about 100 yards off shore while wearing 2-foot-tall stilts (thus, the stilts were wearing the skates), and couldn't recover after falling through.

 

California Highway Patrol officers at the scene near Yuba City, Nev., said the 28-year-old driver that crossed into oncoming traffic and fatally crashed into a Hummer in February was, perhaps, working at his laptop computer while driving. Though the screen was shattered in the crash, the computer was open in the seat beside him and plugged into his car's cigarette lighter.

 

 

As a reminder, my reason for sending this is to help keep communication lines open between friends while hopefully adding a bit of levity to the day.  Back issues are available in the Deep Thoughts section of my website.  Have a great week!
