Happy New Year To Those Youthful Souls Who Know No Age Limit

Cheryl and Chapin bundled up on New Year's Eve 2011 watching Katie's soccer game.

Yeah, it’s April Fool’s Day on the calendar, but it’s New Year’s Day as I write this post. Click here for details. (hint: I’m conducting a blogging, and life, experiment).

Last night (New Year’s Eve 2011), we attended Cheryl’s cousin’s daughter’s 16U soccer game at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex. They drove down from Jacksonville earlier and are staying a few days with us during the tournament.

Guido Muller, Jack (Bear), jeff noel…minutes after Guido set a new Masters Track World Record in 2009…
