Bad Weekend for News

Interesting weekend…found out all kinds of bad news...

Friday night I found out a former mighty-mite player from Lang’s era died in her Columbus home Thursday. 39. Wife and mother, went to Lovett, older brother went to Camp SPdL a few times. Former classmates I know were all shocked…perhaps one of the first deaths for their class?

The 16-year old Harrison High football player that died in a car crash a week ago Friday was the son of friends from my single days. An old softball teammates was laid off last September from his home-inspector job and has yet to find work. Their oldest daughter graduates from Auburn this spring. Another old friend was laid off from Georgia Pacific last week after 25 years. Their oldest son is a freshman at North Georgia, their daughter plays basketball against Will and Kara.

Friday concert was a success. Didn’t do much Saturday…played catch with Will and watched Monk (Costas co-starred). Then watched the Jim Nantz Super Bowl commercials show, the SNL sports edition, then even SNL since Steve Martin was hosting - flipping back to “The Devil Wears Prada.”

Good sermon yesterday, then Will had practice. I shopped and ran. Got home and washed both cars. Stood up during most of the game last night, so I was tired.

Bryant Wright’s sermon yesterday emphasized baptism…why not now. They had prepared for a lot of immediate baptisms, and they still ran out of supplies. At least 35 people were baptized, including Matthew’s best friend. Anna had gone to Johnson Ferry yesterday. We asked if she wanted to go back to get baptized, but she didn’t.
