Because I'm located close to the Golden State Warriors home arena, and my son Evan has been a fan (like so many others), through the bad times for years and years, and years and years, this is the time to be shouting out for joy, and shooting hoops at all local playgrounds.
As I was riding my bike the other day, I looked over at a grammar school playground and briefly watched the small kids playing basketball (briefly because I was still riding the bike).
Kids learn what they watch and learn what they see. I saw small kids bouncing basketballs, as though they were mini Steph's, mini Draymond's, mini Shaun's, and mini Klay's.
They were twisting and turning, shoving the ball between their legs, and tossing it towards the hoop (and getting pretty close to scoring 2 points).
They don't have any preconceived ideas that they can't do it. They only need to watch and imitate.They just want to be just like the Warriors.
Last Sunday, Ev sent me a photo of their son Cadel, who said to him that he was wearing his Warriors shirt that morning. Really. So I wrote back "uh, how did he say it? How did you know it?" And shortly there after, here was a video.
What a smart son, grandson, and a wonderful daughter-in-law!

I was attending a class today, but I was the only student that showed up. I knew the (woman) instructor and so we started talking about the real estate program that she would teach. I wanted to be sure I was taking advantage of most of the program's functions. She asked me how I got into real estate. And I told her. That discussion lead me to this...a re-run of my initial introduction to flying. Splice: to join two ropes by intertwining the strands. "Marilyn, I have something for you. My dad wanted you to have it. See you back at the house." This was from Bud Murphy's son, Rich.
Hmmm. Wonder what that could be.
There are two men who have framed my life. The first was my late husband, Carl. The second was Bud Murphy. The first inadvertently introduced me to the second. And now they are both gone. Carl, in 2002, and Bud in 2011.
Within a year of getting married, Carl decided that we must be extravagant with the $40 per month he got from a five and a half year st…
I received a 2-page list that came from Alameda County and it was sent to most everybody who has an address. And whether you live here or not, you need to prepare for it (whatever 'it' is....)
Emergency Preparedness Kits It outlines what you need to have in case of an emergency. If you'd like a copy, let me know and I'll send you a copy of it via email or snail mail. It would be a pleasure for me to get you a copy of this list. I have 2 emergency kits that I bought from KQED (a local Public Radio Station) over the last years. One is in my car and the other is in a bin in the backyard. And let's get rid of plastic (and even paper straws)...I have 2 straws in my backpack that I can wash, dry, and reuse again. And again. And again. This is important! Live richly and be smart! best, marilyn
