A Short Note of Thanks…

A Perfect Post – January 2007

Our friend, Angel, a.k.a. Drama Mama, nominated my post, Pens and Pocket Knives, for January’s Perfect Post Awards. I am humbled and honored by this (considering the company)… and as noted to the left I accept on behalf of all the men who have come before us, who have taught us right from wrong, who have shown us what it means to be a real gentleman, who have set the example and continue to influence us to this day.

Men learn how to be men from other men. We learn how to treat a woman by watching our fathers love our mothers, and our grandfathers take care of our grandmothers. We learn how to be gentleman from watching true gentle men. Father’s are not easily impressed by their sons, but they’re always proud of them. As men, we’re remembered by the character of the men we raise.

I hope you'll go over and check out the great posts from last month. And, again, thanks!

And thanks to Suburban Turmoil and Petroville for the recognition!

I hate to tell you this, but I don't believe you...and neither does Working Gal who referred me to this site. Now I'm going to go gripe at her for leading me on and telling me she had already told you she didn't believe you either.

If you have further questions, refer to my site or ask Working Gal.

I don't believe you.

(sorry, this was late - I was supposed to go first but I got distracted, F&D. I'm at work)

Terri said...

I don't think I believe you either!

Janet a.k.a. "Wonder Mom" said...

And ignore those crazy 'un-believing" ladies...I think they have some screws loose...tee hee.

No. 12 Gonzaga 104, Lewis
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP)Kyle Dranginis was already having his best game with nine pointsin the first half. Teammate Gary Bell Jr. kept urging him to keepscoring.The Gonzaga freshman, who redshirted last year, took hisroommate and best friend's advice and and had 21 of his 30season-high 30 points in the second half as the 12th-rankedBulldogs coasted to a 104-57 victory over Lewis-Clark State Collegeon Thursday night.''It's just great to get back on the floor,'' said Dranginis, a6-foot-4 guard from Nampa, Idaho. ''After that redshirt season Ikind of lost that feeling of playing in regular games with fansthere. It's a great feeling. It was a fun time for sure.''Dranginis, who also had seven assists and six rebounds, was 12for 16 from the field as Gonzaga (7-0) shot 64 percent (43 for 67).The Bulldogs were 11 for 20 on 3-pointers, led by Dranginis'4-for-7 effort.''He's capable of that,'' Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. ''We'vebeen kind of pushing and prodding him to get to that, to viewhimself as a player that can do that instead of a backup. Kyle cando that, it wasn't like an out of body experience.''Przemek Karnowski scored 16 points, Sam Dower and David Stocktonhad 13 each and Kelly Olynyk added 11 points and 10 rebounds forhis first career double-double for Gonzaga (7-0). Drew Barham, ajunior transfer from Memphis, had 11 points for his firstdouble-figure game with the Bulldogs.P.J. Bolte scored 10 points to lead Lewis-Clark State, an NAIAschool from Lewiston, Idaho. The Warriors officially remainedunbeaten at 9-0, though they have lost to the Bulldogs and Montanain exhibition games.Gonzaga rolled despite sitting starters Elias Harris and Bell.Harris, a senior All-American candidate, was the MVP of the recentOld Spice Classic in Florida and leads Gonzaga in scoring (15.7)and rebounding (9.2).''I just wanted to rest them,'' Few said. ''Gary's beat up,walking around like he's 50-years old. I knew if I sat Elias itwould force me to play Przemek more minutes. Kelly needs moreminutes still. I thought it was time to get Kyle more minutes. Ifwe could get GB and E some rest the other guys could pick us up.Mission accomplished.''The Bulldogs shot 70 percent in the first half but didn't puttogether any real dominating runs en route to a 50-32 lead. Thelargest spurt was 10-0 late in the half, helping build a 20-pointlead.Freshman Trey Sobatta scored nine points by shooting 3 for 4 on3-pointers for the Warriors, who shot a respectable 46 percentagainst a team that is 14th in the country by allowing opponents tomake just 34.9 percent.''I thought our effort was pretty good [url=http://www.palmexpo.in/cheapnikeshoes.aspx]nike for cheap[/url] for the most part,'' Fewsaid. ''I didn't like how we defended in the first half. We cameout the first 10 minutes in the second half and got back todefending the way we needed to defend, rebounding the way we needto rebound.''All in all, especially in the second half, our guys got donewhat we needed to accomplish.''Gonzaga, with a tremendous size advantage, had 60 points in thepaint, including 38 in the first half. Dower, Karnowski and Barhamfinished a combined 18 of 22 from the field. The Bulldogs alsodominated the boards 44-20.Bolte, who leads the Warriors at 19.3 points a game as areserve, was held to one basket and Jacob Champoux, who averages13.8, only got off three shots, making a 3-pointer. He finishedwith five points. LC State finished at 37 percent shooting.Gonzaga forced 20 turnovers and had a 46-20 reboundingadvantage.
