Fives on Friday

I'm going to link this post to the lovely Friday Five blog hops out there, so I can meet up with lots of blogger friends today.

1. I managed to capture just a few minutes of my grandson as he was warming up for the basketball game. We attended the game (which they won - 7 and 8 year olds), then we had to take him across town to meet up with his dad, where they were doing baseball tryouts. Really? Tryouts for 8 year olds? (C will be 8 in May).
2. Our little Izzy dog who is almost 13 years old, has always had a thing for unrolling the toilet paper. This time I caught her in the act.

But her very worst thing is that she likes to munch on Polly's poop, or even her own. We have to make sure we have it picked up right after either dog does her business, or Izzy will be on the prowl for a tasty tidbit. The vet says its a behavior thing. I read up on it on Google, and there are references to things that probably don't apply to Izzy. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?

3. Fiddler on the roof was fabulous, by the way. It was so interesting to see the way the people back in the day of Fiddler had to adjust to changes in their tradition, and how difficult the changes were...much more difficult that what changes we face in today's world. The spirit of Tevye is invigorating. The man who founded our local theater, who has played the role of Tevye many times, put on a wonderful performance, and the cast was amazing. It's an almost all volunteer production.

4. On Wednesday, I attended a seminar for writers at the Johnson City Library. This was a great event for me. There were three published authors on a panel, moderated by the manager of the Writers' League of Texas, who presented various experiences and thoughts about writing. Then after lunch we had two hours with the author of choice to visit further about writing and publishing.  I have so many notes to digest, and I had my brain going all night last night with conversations with myself!

5.This coming Sunday, I am in charge of the lesson on taking risks. What is the biggest risk you have taken? Was it for personal gain, or was it for a different kind of risk? I'd love to hear your comments. 

Linking today with Amy at Love Made My Home, Mrs. 4444 at Half-past Kissin Time, and Tanya at Around Roanoke. Check out these sites and find out what others are sharing on this Friday! A Wisconsin lighthouse from Door County on tomorrow's post. Hope your weekend is restful.

By the way, be sure to check out Janie's blog for her insight into my latest book.
