U is for

This letter has been a booger. I've thought of all the UN words I know:
unreasonable, unreliable, unnecessary, unusual, unfair, unjust, etc. All of them so negative.

And I'm feeling so doggone positive! After all, I made it through the hot summer of Perseverance and have finally broken into the peace and satisfaction of Harvest! No clue as to what I'm talking about? See my Seasons post here.

Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. I've never been able to get interested in any "ball" sports other than basketball. I certainly avoid playing games with balls due to my poor depth perception. The ball is never where it looks like it is, lol. But that's cool that the underdogs are winning!

  2. I find in all sports – except for my girls' volleyball games – I'm an underdog fan!

  3. I'm not a sports fan at all, but I do watch the Kentucky Derby every year. Without fail, I always end up rooting for the underdog, and those "come from behind" surprise horses are a surefire way to get me out of my seat hollering!

  4. That's usually me, Shelley. I couldn't tell you who won any World Series ever, but sweet hubby and most of my closest friends hover around the radios and TVs during this time of year. And for the last two seasons, the trend has been even broader since our own home team is in the mix. And I like it because sweet hubby listens on the radio (faster feed) while I write. He gives me the heads up when something good is about to happen and I have a couple of seconds to check back on the TV in time to see it!

  5. Enjoyed your post, but I have to admit, until I read it I hadn't even paid any attention to who was in the running. We're not big sports fans, ordinarily, lol.

  6. Oh that's makes it easy! My friend who grew up in St. Louis married a fella from Chicago! Big rivalry. Funny thing is, they all cheer on the Colts when football rolls around. Ha!

  7. St. Louis Cardinals all the way! 🙂 We have a Cards fan in one son and my husband and a Cubs fan in the other son. Since the Cubs are out, I can safely root for the Cards now! 🙂

  9. Oh thank you, Lindsey. After watching the extra-innings game last night, the post was kind of a natural. Hope to see them win tonight! Woohoo!

  10. Great "U" word. I used to be a GYNORMOUS Dodger fan. But now I care barely at all – though since I'm in Michigan, I'm kinda hoping for the Tigers.

  12. I totally get that. One of my best friends is a St. Louis native. She's torn in half!

  13. I'll just lend my support to the underdog–now I just need to pick one! 🙂

  14. I usually root for the team closest to where I live. This time, I am close to all of the midwestern teams. Texas is out – sorry Texas. It's still a tough decision. (I'm a Chicago White Sox fan at heart)
