Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

 

With every New Year, people tend to begin with new and bold expectations.

Are you a person you makes New Year’s resolutions?

I am NOT a New Year’s resolution type person, but I am very into goal-setting and having a purpose for each day.

“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.” ―Winston S. Churchill

“The best way to lengthen out our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose.” ―Charles Dickens

Your purpose (your vision) for the next days (weeks, months, years, decades) may be as simple as keeping a clean house so that it is a welcoming place for guests, daily making a point to show unmerited kindness to a person, begin to learn a new language, read a book a week, join a local club or organization… There are thousands of choices.

I believe that a person needs a reason to get-out-of-bed each morning.

It doesn’t have to be big.

It doesn’t have to change the world.


 


Doesn’t always matter how fast, or even if you need a little help.

But getting up every morning – with a definitive purpose for your day – will allow 2021 to be a year worthy of remembering.

HORSESHOES: SPORTS FOR THE OVER 50+ CROWD

HORSESHOES: Sports for the over 50+ Crowd



 

The 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge



My challenge for this year… I am planning to complete the A-Z Challenge this year by sharing an activity in which I still enjoy competing.



 

The Sport: HORSESHOES

The Season: Spring/ Summer/ Fall

The Rules: Click Here

The Thrill: Thrill One- Throwing a ringer! Thrill Two- Topping and opponent’s ringer!

Full Disclosure: I LOVE THIS SPORT. There are many games that I will be a great sport and allow for competition when I am playing a weaker player. In fact, in most sports, this would be true. Not true in horseshoes. Attempting a ‘bad throw’ can really sidetrack your game. If you can’t stand the heat…. Watch!

FANTASY SPORTS: Sports for the over 50+ Crowd



The 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge



My challenge for this year… I am planning to complete the A-Z Challenge this year by sharing an activity in which I still enjoy competing.



 

The Sport: FANTASY FOOTBALL (There is a fantasy season for every major sport. Find two or three friends and enjoy!)

The Season: An All- Season Sport

The Rules: There are many sites that offered a fantasy game for their sports. Feel free to google!

The Thrill: Thrill One- This is a great way to stay up-to-date with the up-and-comers in a sport! Thrill Two- Trashmouth… This is always a plus. (OK, don’t tell the kids that?)

Full Disclosure: Anytime I have a group of three or more friends that all enjoy the same sport, we play fantasy sports. I have played football, soccer, baseball, basketball, and NASCAR racing. I do not play in the leagues for money; I play for the glory (i.e. trashmouthing)

EIGHT-BALL BILLIARDS: Sports for the over 50+ Crowd



 The 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge



 My challenge for this year… I am planning to complete the A-Z Challenge this year by sharing an activity in which I still enjoy competing.




 

The Sport: Eight-Ball Billiards

The Season: An All-Season Sport (but I prefer the winter!)

The Rules: Click Here

The Thrill: I stink at this game. It has no thrills. It does not seem to matter if I practice or not- the results are the same. In truth, most days, I would rather play cards. Is that not a sad fact!!!

Full Disclosure: I have never been to a place that had regulation billiard tables in good condition in order to practice enough to accomplish any kind of proficiency at this game. It is fun to play for a while if a person has to wait on a bowling lane to open.
