Tonight GM and I are back at Delphos to do a NWC game between Jefferson and Columbus Grove...weather permitting. Sam will be on the other side of Delphos, for a JV game with St. Johns and Fort Recovery. We are going to need some sunshine and wind, and for the 30% rain/storm chance to stay away, to get those in.
Tomorrow Sam and I for the second straight year have been assigned the Division 4 Sectional Tournament at Bascom and Hopewell-Loudon High School. Originally we were to do the finals, but with the rain, things have switched a bit, and we will have the opening games tomorrow at Noon...hopefully the weather will cooperate. Bascom is almost 100 miles to the northeast of Celina, so it's a trip, but the game fees and mileage money make it worthwhile.
The next 2 plus weeks we will spend doing regular season league make-up games and backlogged rainouts...I also will have 3 District Tournament games in Division 3 @ Elida....and finish up my spring schedule at Patrick Henry with a Regional D4 contest there. My old buddy Tom now trains horses outside of Hamler, where PH is located, so I will probably spend the night at his place on the 28th....and drive home in the AM....downing a few brews and BSing in between.
I will sneak the Mesick, Michigan, Annual Mushroom Hunt in between games...although with the District final, I will not be going up until Saturday May 23rd, rather than the 22nd as previously planned....Rick and his boys will head up a day earlier...no doubt picking all the "rooms" and leaving me with beer to drink and cigars to smoke...Oh' Well, somebody has to do the dirty work.
Boycotting GM/Chrysler and the UAW_____
Yesterday I mentioned that I do not plan on buying another car, at 60, hopefully I won't have to. Between the 1995 Intrepid, the 98 Jeep Wrangler, and the 1977 Buick, I should be able to do make them last until my driving(breathing) days are done. Patricia and the boys won't be so lucky...they will all 3, without a doubt, have to buy vehicles in the next 2 or 3 years. As I asked my wife yesterday, "Do not buy GM or Chrysler". Since all 6 of our family cars, 3 Chrysler Products and 3 General Motor Products, are made by those 2, it won't be easy...but I've never been a slave to any of the big 3 or the foreign manufactures anyway, so it will not be impossible.
"Ford(UAW worker alert), Toyota, or Honda", I asked her....hopefully the boys will follow suit...why? Well since you asked.
Anybody with a brain knows that our foreign born illegal President and his DC henchman have built a straw dog with the bail out of both GM and Chrysler(not to mention the Banks)....The Feds and the corrupt UAW now are majority owners of Chrysler, and GM later. If you buy a Chrysler product, the US Government is backing you warranty...nice! The standards of quality assurance will be garbage, like everything else the Feds stick their noses in(wait until health care passes). This straw dog is designed to do one thing...keep Obama's slave like union workers happy and with benefits...the cars and service will be junk. But the UAW gerbils will have their benefits and some jobs, and plenty of money to hand out to left wing Democrat candidates.....That is all you need to know!
Boycott Chrysler and GM!
And yes I have family that have worked for GM for a lifetime and family members still on the retiree payroll at GM....but the country and it's survival come first...right now we are at odds with the Obama Administration and his supporters for the soul of America...I can only do my part in the battle, and that will be to never buy another product produced by these 2 automakers or anything built by UAW workers.
Enjoy the Weekend.
Photos-I love cars, I love Jeeps, and it pains me to know, I will never buy a another one produced in the Obama era UAW...Patricia and our 1976 Jeep Cherokee at the Hocking Hills in the fall of 1977, and me when I purchased the 98 Jeep Wrangler back in 2002...this was my "vehicle" when delivering RVs around the country...I have put many a mile on it, both driving and towing it behind the behemoth RVs...it's still running pretty good today.
