    Morning my Murican Friends....
    Well the 'Kid' won one and tied one but are in the thick of it for the Nationals in two weeks in Calgary. She was named 'Canada West All Star' and All Canadian for maintaining an 80+% average in her degree whilst maintaining a key position on the varsity Field Hockey team......
    I'm skipping out of work today (I'll find a way to deal with the guilt) so that Serena and I can go mountain biking.......'the Kid', Me and the dogs up on the mountain in the cool fall sun.......NOTHING better in the world than than..
    A little bragging here... http://godinos.com/news/2011/10/23/F...x?path=fhockey
    The kid is the tall one...

    A six foot woman with powerful legs has to put you at ease at least somewhat. Congrats to the young lady and to her proud papa.
