Just Before Midnight Musings

  Okay, I’m lying in bed and I can’t fall asleep so I thought I would share some of the things on my mind. This is not always a safe thing since this could all be a semi-lucid dream and the morning may tell me this was a bad idea, but I’m going to go for it.

The team played well but we were playing the best team in our age group and … Continue reading
