On a Sad Note
Yesterday one of Joey's life-long friends and teammate from soccer, Nick Smith, was killed in a car accident on a windy, narrow county highway. Another boy in the car has also died and the third is in unknown condition in Bronson Hospital. I don't know if alcohol was a factor but speed surely was.

Nick was his parents only son and he and his dad were the best of buddies. I can remember Mike and Nick on all of the class trips always having a great time.

Nick and Joey weren't as close in recent years as they had been growing up (Smith's lived not far from us) but I always enjoyed Nick. He will be greatly missed by his birth family and by all in Delton, MI.

    Ah, sometimes life is tough and it's a hard lesson for kids to discover that they're not invincible when they sufefr the loss of a friend they knew well.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
