This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Mike the Tiger

BATON ROUGE -- The reign of Mike V, LSU’s beloved mascot who died early Friday morning, will be remembered as one of the most glorious periods in the history of LSU athletics.

Mike V, who moved into a new home on Aug. 27, 2005, served as the official mascot of LSU Athletics from 1990 until his death Friday.

The royal Bengal tiger was born on Oct. 18, 1989, and first moved into his home across from Tiger Stadium on April 30, 1990.

Mike actually attended his first sporting event on February 21, 1990, when he was introduced to a roaring crowd at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center for a men’s basketball game.  The Tigers beat Alabama that day, 75-69, in Shaquille O’Neal’s freshman year.

“Mike V was a noble mascot who was loved by Tiger fans young and old, and he represented all that is proud and dignified about LSU,” said LSU athletic director Skip Bertman.  “Mike has reigned over a magnificent era of Tiger Athletics and he is missed today by LSU fans the world over.”

During his tenure, Mike V reigned over a football national championship, five baseball national championships and a remarkable 23 track and field championships.  He saw LSU sports teams win 37 Southeastern Conference titles from 1990 to 2007.

Mike V succeeded Mike IV who served as LSU’s mascot from 1976-90.

A lovely Mother's Day!

Do families still dress up like this for a Sunday Mass?  My mother sent this picture via email to me this morning.  I had almost forgotten how dressed up we were every Sunday.  We looked like the perfect happy family and to some extent I believe we were.  Some memories were not so wonderful but having seen this picture, I can almost believe there were no bad memories. 

This indeed was the perfect Mother's Day gift from my mother and not only is it Mother's Day but her 70th birthday.  Happy Birthday Mom!

Also, now you guys know I was once young. Here is proof! Judging from my brothers ages, I must have been about 9 in this picture.
