Superbowl Weekend, A little Peyton, A horse and a dog or is it about the girl, and a Punk book…



Friday Fragments are thoughts, those thoughts that are not quite complete enough for their own post yet mentionable none the less. If you have a few fragments of your own and you would like to share them, please visit our lovely host Mrs. 4444…

I am one of ‘those’ crazy sports fans. It happened to me several decades ago when I was a single mom and didn’t want my kids to miss having a man in the house. A friend told me if my kids were involved in sports they would be less likely to get into trouble. I was all for that so I studied and learned the games. All games except for the game of football. Then I met and married John and he helped me understand football, the rules the numbers and the players. So yes, I am a football fan and I am looking forward to the Superbowl. I’m looking forward to the game, the commercials and the food. What are you making?

We are Peyton Manning fans. In fact my daughter and her husband named their third daughter, Peyton. That said, we are not necessarily Bronco’s or Seahawks fans, we are in Philadelphia after all. So I am just hoping for a great, fun game.

Our little Peyton Elizabeth…

The other Peyton:


 Have you seen any of the sneak commercial peeks? I think it’s going to be a good add year. Companies are paying four-million-dollars for thirty-second spots, this year. I suspect that is the reason for the leaks. The companies want to get as much bang for those bucks as they can. I think this is everyone’s favorite so far…

Did you watch the Grammys? I am either getting eeks, old or I don’t know. I have to take a deep breath and remember it is about getting people to talk.   Speaking of the Grammy’s, my author friend Dina Santorelli has a new book out. I loved her first novel Baby Grand so I am looking forward to reading this one:

I don’t want to say it out loud but forecasters, behind the scenes are watching a massive ‘snow’ event for the second week of February, in the northeast. Yikes they ‘mentioned’ thirty-to-thirty-six-inches, the likes of the storm in 1996. All I can say is NONONONONONO!!! Then again, if I can get to Costco first it might be nice to be snowed in for a few days.

If it happens I hope it happens after February 5. That is the day I am going to New York with two of my daughter’s and yikes, eighteen-year-old granddaughter. It has been TOO LONG since we have had a grown up girls day.

I have the best memories of my brother, David and that 1996 storm. My roof was about to give way so he climbed up onto the roof and shoveled the snow off. He also walked to a local pizza shop, whose owner walked to open, and they made and delivered pizza’s, for the neighborhood. I still miss him so much, I always will.

OMGoodness it is almost Valentine’s Day!

 Will you be watching the Winter Olympics? What is your favorite Olympic Sport? Are you worried about security at the Olympics this year?

Have a great weekend!!

I would love to see you here:

  • I’ll bet your Peyton will sleep better tonight than the other Peyton.

    We lived in Upstate New York in 1993, when there was a major storm that dumped tons of snow. So far this year in Wisconsin, we’ve had four snow/cold days off of school, and I expect more. Stay warm, and I hope you make it to Costco.

    I like Olympic skating, but that’s about it. Oh, and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, of course.

    Thanks for linking up, Doreen; it’s always great to see you 🙂 Have a great week.

  • I’m not so much into football as just hanging out with family and friends.

  • Dawn:

    I’ll have to watch the weather, I hadn’t heard about a big snowstorm yet. It always the best when you have lots of goodies to snack on when weather keeps you in. I’m not much of a sports fan. I will watch football if I’m with people who do but I don’t watch it on my own. My husband’s not a big sports fan either, mostly only when our team is in. Have a great weekend!

    • The game is a good excuse to get together in this frigid weather. The local news told us not to
      panic last night about the storm, calling it a rumor, at this point. I’m still stocking up on the
      chocolate and junk food just in case:)

  • Peyton Elizabeth…I do so love that name. It’s beautiful as she is.
    I’m from the Denver area [long ago retired and now in Texas]…but GO BRONCOS.
    The only thing special I’m gonna make is a white cake and decorate it with blue and orange. LOL

  • Nita:

    Your Peyton is much cuter! I tried to get interested in football when my oldest son played it in school but I never did understand it.
    I hope you have good weather for your outing it sounds like a fun trip.
    Have a great weekend!
