Hey Craig,
How did Serena and Venus play out in their doubles tennis match?
I would like to visit Wimbledon someday, or The Davis Cup.
I noticed they have had tennis on channel six several mornings this week, a coincidence since I have not thought about tennis for years and then just posted a comment in FTD about Serena.
We used to play mixed doubles in college.
Steve once made a comment that he never saw me run while playing, not a full hard run. I thought that was funny and yet by the time I had to give up the sport it was because a lung had collapsed, like a fool, I was giving lessons to kids on campus at UNH on one of the hottest days of the year! After that, I had my first fall!

You were an athlete (I would not call myself one) but, you had physical challenges that you worked through.
I have a great respect for anyone who has the courage to do that. It is easy to be an athlete when someone is blessed with a healthy strong body, then it becomes the mind game, that was not a problem for me, it was always the unseen, physical problem that I am now almost free of!
I owe a great debt of gratitude to your hubby, Craig, and to you because you support his great work. So thank you, Craig.
I look forward to seeing your performance of "Field Trip".
Do you have any eggs?
