Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Wrestling Practice!

Wrestling practice started yesterday. It was fun. We have kids of all experience levels. Dave, David, and I a suited to working with the variety. We’ll have to see if all the kids hang in with it, or if we lose some.

No time to fold... Got to get to the gym by 3:15!

After practice, I had to do some emailing, which I can’t do at home because I had to use the school’s system to look up email addresses. It kept me there a little later than usual. There’s no escaping it… the Early Dark is upon us. I have seen the sun for the last time. Dark when I arrive, dark when I leave. I think I might need some help with my S.A.D. this year. Time to get out the lights!

    I am so, so, so sorry. Maybe I could construct some sort of hat for you to wear that will hold those special lamps – or maybe just some sun-trickery eyewear?

    Are you going to switch your name to Davester so you can fit in?

    • Carol

      Would that be a variation on “Ed, Edd and Eddie”? [“Dave, David, and Davie” then?]

  2. Lloyd

    You know, those grow lamps in your basement might be able to help with your SADness.

  3. Peggy

    Maybe you could make a giant sun out of some bright yellow tissue paper & glue it in your window & shine one of those Christmas spotlights on it from outside.


    I don’t know if this will help or hurt.

    Best comment of the day: A sixth grader said to me during class, “You looked like a ninja when you did the duck walk yesterday.”

    • Carol

      Can’t honestly day I’ve seen many Ninja-walking ducks in my day, but I bet you are among the best, Mr. Royuk! I can picture you now… (This coming from someone who had her Sat. a.m. breakfast with Donald Duck at Chef Mickey’s in WDW, too!!)

    • Lauren

      I think you have ninja-like skilz in all things, because I can never see you.

      That or my glasses are dirty.

      • Lloyd

        It’s just too dark to see him.
