Hey LoriLu...Good luck with your quest. Good things come to those who strive. (Oh crap. Did I say that? My dad always used to say that.) Here's another one: If you don't change your actions,you can't expect the results to change. How's that? You are making efforts,and that's how you get results...Keep it up,kid.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Feb-08-06 AT 10:19 AM (EST)]It's starting to happen, your name is out there, keep on going for it. I'm still keeping my eyes open for players about my age but I'm not sure if I'll find any, so I'll take what I can get.

Thanks guys. I practiced hard tonight hitting and kickin em hard and it was quite fun and not really tiring. Something about playing in that big old warehouse brewerey just got me going and feeling more solid. Confidence and control. The longest practice I've had in a really long time. Definitely am looking for things to take a turn for the really good now. It's time.
