Detroit Tigers Just lost to all its faithful followers.

The Detroit Tigers owner Mike Illich and the General Manager have just proven there is no such thing as a 'team' or 'teammates'.  Not long ago they traded a popular well liked center fielder Granderson for Austin Jackson.  Now they've traded away Austin Jackson (in the middle of a game no less) and pitcher Drew Smyly. Two well like players and teammates.  Team.  What a false word.  It isn't about 'team', it's about winning the pennant and making the 'almighty dollar'.  Being a team member is worthless.  These players are just commodities, nothing else.  Never mind uprooting families and friendships.  Big bucks is what its all about.  For shame for shame....................................marge

Cruel at its best.

There are people out there who keep taking mean, cruel pictures of me with their assorted types of cameras.  The blame is not the camera snappers though.  My loving relatives holding the photographic equipment certainly aren't accountable.The blame must rest with the camera manufacturers.  I can't be standing next to beautiful grandchildren who turn out good enough to be on a magazine cover and show up looking like, well, an apple left in the fridge too long and I really mean too long.  I'd show you a picture but haven't completely mastered the computer yet.  A picture however, would only prove my point I'm sad to say................................marge

Perfection

I am so close its embarrassing.  Really.  Don't listen to those 'naysayers'.  Shakespeare once said, oh wait, I never read Shakespeare.   But I digress.  Working in a group is sometimes difficult for me.  Alright.  Some would say 'doesn't play well with others' is more accurate.  Its just a matter of interpretation.  Integrity first, all else second.  Yes, humility is important and I do try to keep it in the mix.  Not always an easy task but only for good reasons.  In my attempt to keeping people informed, on any subject, my eagerness takes over, hiding my humility and humbleness.  Not good but any offense unintentional.  So there you have it.  Remember all my good qualities.  They are what make me.  No.  I won't list them again.  Quit daydreaming and use your brain.......................marge

Random thoughts

In another lifetime, I used to sit and cry as I tried to fold a contour sheet and make it come out square.  When you don't hear from your grown children, send an email.  'Hello I'm fine'.  I'll be 'finer' when the cast comes off my wrist.  If there's no such thing as a 'figured person', then there should not be a 'disfigured' person.  Its all in the mind's eye.  Pro baseball batters are also pros at multitasking.  Who else can chew, swing a bat and hit a ball all at the same time.  Perhaps high schoolers in class could benefit from the pros.  "Let them chew gum!"  The spitting is not in this equation.  Finally, I can't help wondering what the players do when home.  Does the wife occasionally have to slap them upside the head?  Till next time.........................marge

Good job Patty

When driving with my daughter in my car, she's always saying, "don't hit that flying bird or squirrel running across the road!"  This week she was about to leave the drive-in window at McDonald's in Novi.  Something flashing across the front of her car caused her to slam on the brakes.  The 'object', a toy, was immediately followed by a dashing young child.  His Grandma was extremely grateful and assuredly not the only one..............................marge

Kim Kardashian and family

Every day I turn on the computer, up pops a story about Kim Kardashian and her family.  I pretty much have no idea who they are, what they do or more importantly, why.  I've seen her wearing white, I've seen her wearing black.  I've seen her wearing see through and not see through.  What am I missing here and should I care?  So far I don't think not caring has been detrimental to me.  I guess I'll stop worrying about it.  As Rhett Butler said, "frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.".......................marge

I did it!

Yesterday I put my initials in wet cement.  That shouldn't be a problem.  Oh wait.  It wasn't my cement, it was the City's. I won't tell if you won't.  Cross my heart.  Maybe.  PS.  The hand print is NOT mine.....................marge
