    HI JODIE you are so good about answering posts i read your post about you football family. sounds like you have many great football genes way back.

    our family is totaly sports oriented. wished id pushed books more .my one son was in minors with pittsburg pirates and one signed with bengals but he was cut.

    now he and my youngest are playing arena football.

    its lots of fun and im sure you and your family enjoy it and the memories.

    we will see what happens withour son...he is only sophomore in high school...he went to u of michigan football last summer and got great reviews...and another football camp out here in california...he was called out among all of the others and all the other football coaches from other area schools said he was the hardest hitting person they have seen in a long time..

    i don't like to brag about my son on here because there are other mothers and fathers with very disabled children...my heart goes to them...i feel they are better parents than i cause i just don't think i could do it...but i guess somewhere you do...

    good news today, cody my son, won the discus throw and the shot put...in the bay area they for some reason don't allw sophomores on the varsity track team..but he threw farther than the varsity team players... and last saturday they had an invitational and he was ranked 3rd overall in the entire county...that icludes the seniors and juniors...

    he really likes track...but football he find is boring ...they make them practice starting in the end of may through middle of december if they go all the way...

    well we will see what happens...what is really neat that his school does they put together a dvd of highlights of the football games....with the music and all...

    well how does our son's like the areana football? i have watched some myself a little here and there...we have the sanjose saber cats here...and back where i grew up in grand rapids michigan they have an arena team there....

    it is pretty nice that he does well in what he tries...i just wished he liked football a little more than he does...he loves the games when he gets to tackle....
    but he doesn't like learning the plays...he says we worries about it when he goes to bed at night about if he is going to forget his plays and get yelled at...but he must have been good enough to be picked the 1st string ilbacker...but then he did crush that darn knuckle of his...it doesn't bend like it should but he will survive....

    well i should get off of here now...thank you for writing and i hope i didn't bore you too much...

    sounds like your sound should love football. hitting is what its all about. how big is he!

    my son went to that camp at U OF M ten years ago. my 25 year old.

    i went to a srimage today and they both did really good. my 21 might have to play both wats. arena is different i really am not into it yet. its very aggresive and brutal. they kinda encourage unsportsman like stuff which scares me.

    the good thing is one of my good friends son is on the team. our families have been friends for 3 generations so i have her to talk to and her husband and mine golf all the time.

    i know what you mean by bragging too much but feel free to brag to me i need feel good thoughts.i need to know theres good things in people lives too.

    sometimes i just sit here and cry over other peoples hardships,

    i read the one woman whose mom had als and she with fm and cfs had to take care of her. i keep thinking of her.

    sorry im a 1 finger typist lol i drive my kids nuts when they watch me.

    take care love Gail

    i just got home from losing at the casino...i have to stay out of there...my own darn fault...

    my son turned 16 12/21/05...last i knew he was 5'11" and around 200 lbs...he dad is 6'3" he got up to 275 llbs. muslar build...he comes from big irish family..literally big famil ..his dad was a child of 13 living children...all big men..and the women too... and when he was in high school he was like 6'1"...so we will see how big this kid may get...he stil has some time to grow and men hit their peak right around 25 for develping muscle...cody was born with muscle no baby fat...we would walk down the beach and people would point at him and say look that baby has muscles...he did..he is lucky...i am only 5'2" and well we won't discuss my weight now...but i would way no more than 110 in high school then i got on the antidepressants and that was it...up and down w/weight..right now i am on the downward spiral...i have a athletic build...

    oh i got card tonight to come in the casino..i said at my age...he said yes, so i dug out my id...he said oh you look so young and good...he said that is a compliment...he said i wished someone would card me at my age...he had gray hair...i have some but it is highlighted and low lighted...

    well i guess i still look good at 41 years old....i know when i was ging out at my local bar i was having the young men wanting to go out w/me...oh well..

    anyways...yes i have read some of the posts too and cried feeling so badly for some of these people.....

    i have had financail struggles since my divorce...but things have gotten better for me..know i would like to try to get to work again doing something...but i just don't know if i could honestly hold up...

    well talk to you later yu friend...oh yes how fun you have a friend to sit with in the stadium with you...i have a 68 year old friend/like a mother to me...she loves her 49'rs so i have learned through the years don't call her or talk to her at the games...but she is alot of fun to be around...

    she used to be a real dancer in vegas-showgirl stuff in the 60's and she went out with frankie lane...new the rat pack...she has some stories to tell...

    love your friend

    he would tell me "mom i'm glad i got your brains and not my dad's" he makes honor roll and he does take some difficult classes... so he should be very well prepared for college...i have to start working on him to take his sat...he will be a junior next year or coming fall....

    i am hoping we can get his gpa up to a 3.5 but if it is a 3.0 he should be ok...

    texas holdem...i was talking to man last night..he won 850$ on texas holdem...he plays cards...and then he came over to the nickel slots and he made 90$ on the slot machine...

    well the old story here i was up a couple hundred but i got greedy becasue i saw the double butterflies come up they were getting ready to bingo out and hit the jackpot...

    oh well some other time...

    the jurys out still on the ffc. ive only been going since dec 05. ive taken all meds faithfully over 30 pills a day but im bad staying on diet. my feet burn so bad and numb its hard to walk far. also i stay up all night. i have no interests. my grown children drive me nuts thats why im sick. im a changed person use to be laid back now im a grouch.

    anyway so good your son gets great grades. my one son was inducted into his high schools hall of fame and during his speech he said i got my athletic ability from my dad and my brains from my mom lol i said gee thanks since he didnt even like school. he went into minors with pittsburg pirates and his arm went bad. i was so sad for his dream to be over.

    tell your son to keep up the good work the day of the dumb athlete is over grades are a must.

    take care love Gail

    they must have them now...no sliding htem by...they used to do that in high school way back when i went..in fact i found out from my ex-husband, that the quarter back was illerate...he said didn't you ever wonder why he didn't go to college...he said the coach used to have my ex help him w/homework and the teachers used to pass him...i used to let him cheat off from test from me myself...he was so good looking, was always polite...never a trouble maker..but i guess he couldn't read...he went all the way to state championship and winners of our school class league...

    anyways..i am sorry about the fcc...that's too bad about your mood..

    i have gone to happpy go lucky but always anxious...too up and down moods...

    well i can not beleive 30 pills a day...i do beleive...

    i hope it works for you...
    love

    i am so sorry your having such a flare or is it something viral...that stinks...last year when i had shingles i thought it was just the good old fibro bugging me again...

    you live in cincinati ohio? last summer i went back to my birth place, battle creek, michigan...i normally take my son to cedar point...i used to love the roller coasters then i hit about 25 years and everytime i got on a ride i had to run to the bathroom...it caused such anxiety...i would lose weight when i didn't even need to loose weight..

    my son's grandparents took him and his friend from california to sandusky and to the u of m football camp...so his friend really got a great experience of the midwest...i guess he really liked the big building there....

    it is funny to me because i used to live in alexandria viriginia outside of washington d.c....i love it back there....the history of our nation...the functions...the respect for military personal back there has always been higly regarded back there...

    my ex and i were stationed in st. ignace michigan, up by mackinaw island...anyways he was in th uscg, and the have native american indians there and well let's say they don't like coast guard members...

    so you went to the casino? di you win anything? i just got back myself it is nearly 5 am...i have not been to sleep yet...i lost...i could've been up but this older man was ab out one step ahead of me in getting to my machine that i was playing hours...and anyways..i could've rudely slid in the chair but i'm not like that...i've had it done to me before...

    anyways he hit the double buttlies with all sevens that would've been about 350 dollars....and he was winning before that some and after...i was so mad...but i had to let it go...then he was asking me about how much he had won he didn't understand...he was of another country...

    oh well next time....

    i am going to find out about a little job $30.00 cash per hour..for 2 hours a day from like 9=11 am... for this woman in her early 60's..she lives at my apt...complex and i guess she wants someone to come get her going and make sure she eats breakfast and i dont have to cook...i feel guilt taking money for doing nothing...so i think i may see what she would like for breakfast...or maybe help her out a little bit...w/some light housework...

    i thought this may be good for me to get in a routine of something every morning...i get ssdi and child support ususally..but last i knew it had been two months w/o child support...i think it maybe getting started again...but that will all end in a few years... then i may need to move back to battle creek michigan...then go buy a house or rent an apt...i still have a brother and sister there withe neices and nephews...

    it is so darn expensive to live here marin county california...i live about 10 miles away from the wine county in napa coutny...it is really pretty out there in the spring...

    yes sometime i am sure we could meet up...and what is funny i have a really good friend that has a brother in law that is a plastic surgeon back there...and i am almost 100% positive that he lives and works in cincinati,,,,

    well i need to go get a nap before i wake up my son for school...

    are you guys getting hit with a snow storm today? my sister had mentioned day that in michigan they were supposed to get hit w/snow storm today///

    well i'll talk to you later and some time we will have to meet in chat room and give out the old email address if you would like...we can not do that here on the message board..

    i hope your son gets the casino job back...did he do security or a dealer?

    i tell you if i were 20 years younger i may have moved to vegas and been a showgirl or a casino dealer...i think that would be so fun...

    i'm sure they get bored after awhile dealing w/drunks..

    love and take care my friend
