A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Sports Round Up

From four soccer games (refereed), to a "Guinness World Record Party, and lastly, to the Tribe vs. Cub's game, what a wild ride it's been for the last 18 hours. My fellow referees today were a husband and wife "team", Julio and Lety, who were thrilled to work with another female referee (there are just not that many of us). We had a good set of games and the weather was perfect to be outside enjoying the day!

The next order of business was to head to the Richard Flanagan household where a celebration party was underway to congratulate Rich on his "official" Guinness World Record for his one-wheelie record in one hour that he did on May 29th, 2016. There is a lot of paperwork required by the Guinness World Record people, with the  checking and double-checking on the record once it has been accomplished. A few days ago, Rich got the official announcement that he now holds the Guinness World Record for a one hour one wheelie (64 laps on a track)! How awesome is that!??

And lastly, the Indians vs. Cubs game in which the Cubs just won game five (boo), and now the series MUST be won in Cleveland on Tuesday! What a game, and series it has been thus far. Looking forward to the best baseball around with the traditions surrounding both teams...vintage!
