Okay… My Saturday went well enough, I guess. I got my six pages finished, and then headed to Konawa for four basketball games — both Wewoka teams and both Konawa teams. At the same time, both New Lima teams were playing in Ada, and Seminole’s boys were playing in Byng. Here’s the current state of[…]
Three more games are under my belt after today! Whew! All the Seminole County teams I covered won today — New Lima girls, Konawa boys, and Wewoka girls. The pix are on My Flickr .
Thanks for all the support from fellow packrats! (See previous post [invalid link removed]). Also, check out this link [invalid link removed] . The mother of one of the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets’ [invalid link removed] dancing girls (The “Honeybees” [invalid link removed] ) found some of my pictures on my website [invalid link removed][…]
For the first Tuesday in a while, I had no basketball games. It was nice. But I frittered away most of the evening by taking a three-hour nap (accidentally) from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Yeah, I have to be REALLY tired to fall asleep unintentionally. Fortunately, Marline called before I had a chance to[…]
My darling Marline is sick today; I think it’s the same thing I’ve had for a week and a half. I’d think that I gave it to her, except I doubt you get catch viruses over the phone. Not physical viruses, anyway. She’s a strong lady, I know she’ll get well soon. Last night, I[…]
It’s freakin’ cold here. Today’s HIGH was 19 degrees, according to local weathermen. Those are my grandmother’s calves, covered in ice. We had to break the ice in the pond so they could drink. Of course, the ice wasn’t that thick; they could have broken it themselves, if they were smart enough. But by tomorrow,[…]
I hate it when my fatigue level affects my emotional state (note: “affects” is a verb; “effects” is a plural noun — see, there’s always time for a grammar lesson). I’ve been so tired lately, that I’m less likely to be my calm, cool, and collected self. I’ve grown snappy and argumentative At least I[…]
I was a little down last night… Not because it was V-day, LOL. Just about life in general. You know how everyone has emotional cycles? (especially women?) Well, I have them too. I think they run in 2-3 week cycles. In my old days, I was mostly in the middle of the scale, but I[…]
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY (to everyone, but mostly to) MARLINE!

A few new pix are on My Flickr . I spent much of the day on the phone with Marline [invalid link removed] , which is normal for us on Sunday, but not for today. She was in Washington, D.C., and her flight home was cancelled, due to abnormal snowfalls in NYC (about 2 feet!)[…]
Well, the “small school” District Championships are over… I’m not sure of all the results yet… I’ll have them before the next issue of our paper, though. I’ve posted some new pics on my Flickr, from the New Lima games I attended. (Copyright © 2006 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)
I think I’m going to boycott Seminole’s Sonic Drive-In. Yes, it’s a one-man boycott, so it undoubtedly will not be effective. Let me make this clear: I don’t have a problem with their food — I like Sonic’s food (I used to work at Sonic, you know). I like their service — it’s as fast[…]
Well, two players from Bowlegs have found my Flickr photos… Kristy Hill (#21, girls’ point leader) and Travis Phay (#21, boys’ point leader) are commenting on all the pics. Fortunately, I had a few good ones of each of them.
“My” Lady Vikings are done for the season. They lost tonight, by 10 points. As a senior, it was Shay-la’s last game. Some of the others will probably play next year, and the team has some promise, with talented freshmen moving up. Cydney led in scoring for the Lady Vikings. Here are a few of[…]
I just got finished talking to Marline on the phone. It was a very good conversation, except that I did most of the talking. I know, Mark, you can’t believe that I know how to shut up once in a while. But nine times out of 10, I feel like Marline and I share our[…]
I took a few more pictures at the Varnum game last night. But they played Wanette, a team that isn’t very good, so I left early. Here’s how I can tell if a team isn’t any good, or is struggling: their coach yells at and instructs them from the sidelines. The teams that are REALLY[…]
I googled myself and found that Lt. Governor (Oklahoma) Mary Fallin included one of my articles on her website. Nice. And some 20-year-old chick from Washington has one of my poems on her MySpace page . I don’t mind, because she gave proper credit and linked back to my Tripod site [invalid link removed] .[…]
EDIT: (11:26 p.m., 2/5/2006) I forgot to mention this in my last entry, but I’ve now been blogging for a full year — since Feb. 2, 2005. It was, of course, my good friend Juanna who got me into blogging for the first time; I signed up merely to comment on her page. Thanks, Juanna.[…]
In my humble opinion, Feb. 2 kicks the crap out of Dec. 25. Why? Because today was better than Christmas, my friends, at least on this part of the continent (commonly known as “the butthole of America”). Through the magic of FedEx, I received my wedding band at the office this morning. Actually, I’m not[…]
