Everything

Hubbs and I met up with another couple to watch Michigan vs. Michigan State play basketball Sunday night.  I can’t say I follow it, but he does and then some;  I’m good with tagging along and enjoying the outing.

Talking to our oldest earlier that day, I asked what his plans were.

Sighing,  he said, “Well this is when I wish I had cable because I’d rather stay home and watch it than go out and spend money I don’t have.”

So you know I invited him to join us.

“Really?”  he asked.

“Sure, we’d love to have you. Come and have a beer and a sandwich on us.”  I said.

“Thanks, Mom. I’ll see you later!”  The excitement in his voice was palpable.

You see, between his work schedule and ours, and him having the little ones regularly, he doesn’t get a lot of time on his own much less with Mom and Dad.

Time without interruption, without tying shoes, bed times or monitoring who got the last of the fruit snax.

Time to talk, time to be heard.  Time to cheer along; time to just be.

Our table brightened when he arrived, pulled up a seat, and settled in to enjoy the game.

In the big scheme of life, it wasn’t anything. But, in its own way, it was everything.

Game ready

So, there’s this big football game on Sunday: Brothers coaching the San Francisco something-or-others against the Baltimore what’s-their-names.

(smile)

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know I’m not there for the game.

I’m there for the food and the commercials! 🙂

The Budweiser Clydesdale’s commercials are a favorite of mine and this one makes me think of two special blogging friends:  D at The View Out Here who raises & trains beauties like these and Dianna over at These Days of Mine who wishes she did.

Happy Super Bowl, everyone!

Best of Super Bowl XLV?

The beautiful Budweiser Clydesdales; an emjayandthem photo

Nope, it wasn’t the chips, salsa, wings or beer.

It was the commercials, of course!     Here are my favorites:

#1 VW can make even a dung beetle look cool (Use of “Black Betty” – brilliant)

#2 CareerBuilder Chimps wreak havoc in parking lot

#3 Hyundai’s “Sheep” .. stop settling for predictable

#4 Budweiser’s Wild West  (The Clydesdales pulling the stagecoach = simply awesome!)

# 5 Pepsi Max – The entire pub laughed at the ending.

And for goodness sakes, if you’re an award winning singer blessed with pipes that CAN handle singing a song as difficult as the National Anthem, at least learn the words!

How about you? Did you watch the Super Bowl this year?  What was your favorite part?
