MANNING UP THE SUPERBOWL-A SHORE REFRESHER-THE WEEKENDER

HERE'S HOPING
    Peyton Manning exemplifies excellence. He is testament to the virtue of hard work, preparation and discipline. He's a role model as a leader and he could be the best, or smartest, quarterback to ever play the game.  He might be both. I became a fan of both the football player and the man when we were both in Indianapolis. I didn't like the way Jimmy Irsay, owner of the Colts, handled Peyton's employment when he was injured and fighting to recover and I've told him that.  So with all of this as preamble it is no surprise who I will be rooting for this weekend.  It would be a sweet thing if Peyton can steer the Broncos to a win, gaining himself another ring and validating the extraordinary effort he's put into rebuilding himself and proving the power of overcoming.
THE SHORE
   The Pacific Coast is forever fascinating and begging for a camera.

     If you are feeling landlocked, suffering cabin fever, tired of winter or maybe just a little tense, this weekend's video may be for you.  Three minutes of peace by the pacific.

  1. Love the pictures, Tom. A nice break from the snow that's out my window. I really like the starfish.

  2. I'm also rooting for Peyton Manning, but I can't speak of it too much because we're so close to Seattle.

  3. I, too, love the starfish. And that piece of driftwood is spectacular. Judy would be trying to figure out how to get it home to our backyard.

  4. Oh... the starfish and stones... please tell me that Lana is going to paint a picture of this. I'm snatching it for my Facebook page. As always, your pictures and words bring joy. Go Bronchos!

  5. Dunno. Much as I like Manning, it would be sweet to see a traditional hard-nosed defense come away with this.
