A Word to the Wise. . .

A while back, I was engaging in some playful teasing with a lawyer friend of mine, when he got a mischievous look on his face and told me (I'd say he reminded me, but it honestly hadn't occurred to me before then):

"You know, if you and I should ever happen to be in court together, you'll have to swear an oath to tell the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth.  I won't. . ."

*************************

And hey, while I'm thinking of it, how 'bout my Spartans?  Undefeated in the Big Ten (with one game left to play), they punched their ticket to the conference championship game yesterday.  I told some of my friends from the school down the road that winning our game with them is nice, but we're REALLY looking forward to playing Ohio State. . .  Heh. . .

Anyway, Coach D'Antonio has got it goin' on in Spartan-land.  We're not used to this level of high, sustained success.  Or beating our friends down the road with quite such regularity.  But we're sure as heck enjoying every minute of it. . .

And the basketball team isn't doing too badly, either. . .

GO GREEN!!!

  2. I'm not allowed to cheer for your Spartans because a certain member of my immediate family has brothers and nephews who are huge UofM fans. In fact every game is a Super Bowl to them.
    I sort of resent the fact that they consider me a Notre Dame fan because of my name and the fact I wear green on St Pat's.
    But, good for Sparty.

    Heh. I can vouch for THAT. I had friends of both the blue and green varieties when I lived in Dee-troit, and the greens suffered the most. Consistently. It was pretty bad for me, though, as both camps hated ND with a passion that knew no bounds.

    1. Back in the days when such a thing was possible, I used to tell my kids that when Michigan played Notre Dame, I rooted for a scoreless tie. . . with lots of injuries. . .
