    Stole One Today!

    Been looking for a backup Vinci mitt for DD. Got lucky and stole a new on on eBay. If the seller is here, just know it went to a good home and will be used. DD leaves for college tomorrow. Every dollar I can save helps! Thank you!

    LTB a used 33” Vinci catchers mitt.

    DD needs a backup/practice mitt. Her last one shredded at the bottom pocket lacing. Must be a Vinci 33” and in good shape. Model/color not a deal breaker. Let me know what you have. Thanks!

    Horrible day for DD’s softball field!

    Powell High School (TN) softball field is experiencing its worst flooding since 1993. it was built in 1992. Almost 4ft of water covering the entire field. We’ve already lost part of our 2 year old left field fence. The 8ft outfield fence was installed this winter. Hoping it holds up. I’m sure...

    Anybody ever had to glue a glove?

    When I grabbed what I thought was DD’s back up mitt for a pic the other day I discovered it was her gamer. So, I got her back up out and noticed it is in much better shape than her current glove! The only problem with the back up is the stitching has broken on the thumb stall and I want to fix...

    The first of the “Lasts”

    While I was sitting here this morning talking to DD’s HS AC, I joked I’m glad we aren’t at the Scenic City in 35 degree weather this morning. Right then it hit me, My DD will never play another fall travel tournament, it’s over. So, if you’re freezing your butt off somewhere this morning, be...

    DDs journey will continue!

    After all the camps, clinics and visits, I finally saw Kenzie fall in love with “her” school this week. From the campus to coaches, players, class sizes, even the cafeteria! Everyone says you will know when you find your school and I saw it all over Kenzie’s face from the time we arrived that...

    Finally Got The Bling !

    Four months after winning the TN AAA State Tournament, the girls received their rings and were recognized at halftime during last Friday’s Honecoming football game.

    Tn class aaa state champions!

    After finishing second last year, DD’s HS team wins it all! A great group of girls that had one goal this year and accomplished it! They were 42-8 on the season. BTW, if you saw ESPN’s top ten yesterday, the #1 play was made against us which basically forced the “if” game which we won 2-1.

    After two years of banging the fence for doubles, DD finally got her first HS HR! She didn’t know it was gone until she rounded second and Coach was telling her to slow down, lol! It was even sweeter that it come off the team that beat us in the state championship last year. She was one of...

    Nationally Ranked!

    DD’s HS team has been nationally ranked for the past two weeks in the USA Today poll. I will say it was fun while it lasted, lol! We dropped a non-district game Friday to a good local team. Our two freshman pitchers got some valuable experience in this game which is more important in the long...

    A little pre season publicity for DD’s HS team.

    Always nice when the local paper gives a little love to softball. We have a couple of stud freshmen being added to the mix that weren’t mentioned as well. Expecting big things from this group this year...

    Cool IOS 11 feature

    Just found out you can one touch record clips from periscope and other video sources with IOS 11. Go to settings, then control center, then customize controls and activate screen recording. I’m sure the techies knew this but I thought it was pretty cool. Very easy to extract highlights from game...

    Proud day for DW and I!

    DD banged out a 29 on her first attempt at the ACT! She is still carrying a 4.5 GPA through midterm of her junior year. Typical DD response; I'll take it again in February, I think I can get a 32. :) I wish she would take a minute and enjoy what she has accomplished. What a great Christmas...
