Wellness Wednesday Series #3




Special Guests


I can't recall how I came across this blog, but I think it may have been fate.  Sean of the South is a writer.  But not just a writer.  He is mostly a story teller.  The story I'm sharing with you today struck a cord with me because it's about a young man who lives in a town where I used to live - Houma, Louisiana.

It isn't just another story; it's an amazing story of a  Smile.

After you finish reading this story, you may also want to visit around on Sean's Radio Show for some Blue Grass music if you like that sort of thing.

Or, you can check out the long list of stories in the Archives.  If you are a dog lover, you will cry over this one - Old Dogs.

Sean Dietrich is a columnist, and novelist, known for his commentary on life in the American South.

And, if you are a Southern Lady or even know one, or maybe even desire to be one, you will enjoy hearing and seeing Sean describe one.


Sean has written several books that you may want to check out, but, when you need to read something short and meaningful or funny, or nonsensical, check out Sean Dietrich - Sean of the South


Feeding the Mind


Ok, I might have fudged a bit with this heading, because what I am sharing with you not only feeds the mind, but also the soul and spirit.

FAMILY

Tomorrow, Dick and I are going our separate ways.  Literally, not figuratively.

At 10:00 AM, I will leave him at the Terminal at Love Field in Dallas to fly to meet our son and grandson in Denver for a few days.  I will then drive a little piece to our daughter's house to spend those same few days with her and the family.


Grandson Jackson has been selected as one of 50 of the country's best college Rugby players from the East to join 50 others from the West.  It is going to be an exciting time when these best of the best college athletes meet up for this elite USA Rugby Men's Collegiate All-American Selection Camp in Glendale, Colorado.


I am thrilled that Dick will be there with John to watch Jackson in this most brutal, hard-to-watch, violent sport.  Geaux BIG BOY!  We are so proud of you.

In the meantime, I will be getting to see my Dallas daughter and three granddaughters.  I am especially looking forward to seeing the youngest, Ava Grace in the North Texas Performing Arts performance of...


I am also looking forward to meeting my first Great Grand Dog.  Chandler and Brad adopted a Golden Retriever this weekend, Sampson Cunningham.

So, these next few days will definitely be a time of feeding our mind, our body, and our souls.

Have a great Wednesday and be Well!

  1. Wow! That's pretty cool for your big, handsome rugby player. So you are now in town for a few days? I am going to check on seeing the play. Jack will be out of town, but will see about Kate. Next week school starts for them. I love the dog! Looks like a really friendly one! Zig Ziglar was a wonderful man. I used to go hear him speak at Prestonwood Baptist and also read one of his books.

  3. Yay … another fan of Sean Dietrich! I'm positively besotted with the young man; and, in fact, have tickets to go see him speak in a couple of weeks. (Excited!)
    Travel safely, both of you!

  4. A granddog! That's how it begins : ) Good luck to your grandson! We've seen some professional Rugby and it's a tough tough sport. He looks like he can handle it though!
