Eyes on the prize

Posted: August 22nd, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , | No Comments »

American athlete and Sac and Fox Nation member Jim Thorpe competed in the 1912 Summer Olympics. On the morning of his events, he discovered his shoes were stolen. Luckily he found two mismatched track shoes in a garbage bin. One shoe was too big, however, so he threw on an extra sock. He went on to win two gold medals that glorious day, in decathlon and pentathlon. Take a lesson from Jim, and don’t let setbacks keep you back. Keep on keeping on!

A new war on Christmas

George from Portland, OR writes:

Dear T,

I have a new holiday story to tell. It’s Rude-olph, the Rudest Reindeer. Forget about Rudolph. Rude-olph could chew him up for breakfast and spit him out at lunch. He’ll tell you you’re really smart…on Opposites Day. P.S. It’s only ten dollars. How many can I put you down for?

T replies:

Hey, George! The holidays are not a time for disrespect and bad manners. And charging ten dollars for this story is nine dollars too many. All I can say is that I hope Rude-olph learns to overcome his rudeness and is able to join in the festivities in a considerate and neighborly manner.

Stephen and Callum=wolf brothers

On the May 11 episode of The Colbert Report, America’s most patriotic pundit Stephen Colbert revealed that he had been raised by a North American Gray Wolf named Lucan.

Stephen and Callum from THE BOY WHO HOWLED share a lot in common, perhaps even a taste for raw spleen and pancreas. Wolf brothers for the win!

I finally meet the big guy

I grew up in a family that celebrated Christmas, and yet I never had my picture taken with Santa.

As they say, it’s never too late!

This historic photo was taken by JayPG Photography, when Santa showed up at a benefit for Moving Arts, a Los Angeles-based theatre company. Ho, ho, ho!
