Salutations and good day to you and yours! I hope everyone had a productive week.
Our own girls in gold and black had their hands full this week’s game against Deary. They worked hard but couldn’t dominate this time around.
The junior varsity played a short three game stretch as is usual for them. Round one was a quick race to the finish line with Deary coming out on top with a big 25 to 12 win. Round two defiantly had more action in it and the girls showed more effort and concentration with a final score of 25 to 16 win for Deary.
The third and final game for them was the closest score for the night for junior varsity and varsity; it was also the shortest game, with a final score of 10 to 15 in favor of Deary. Varsity was feeling motivated and had plenty of action their first game but their timing was against them and they fell short of the mark with a loss of 11 to 25.
Game two the Spartans tuned up their athletic instruments and gave it another shot but couldn’t seem to pull ahead. Deary won with a score of 25 to 13.
This was a short night with a third and final game. Those girls tried to salvage all they could for this one and ended up with a repeat score of 25 to 13 win for Deary. Keep those chins up girls! We’ll get um’ next game, never give up and never surrender.

Now have any of you ever wanted to go out to eat close to home around here, maybe get a sitter for those kiddos and have five minutes of mommy and daddy time? Here is where my suggestion is, why not try the Timberline Café? My husband and I have had a long week and with him gone working both in and out of state, our newest little one in high demand of care and attention, schooling and home work with our other kids, and our animals needing their care; we realized we wanted to sit down and catch up with each other without being interrupted or cut short.
So I did a little looking around and found out that the Timberline Café, during the summer, offers two Saturdays a month, all you can eat, buffet. It just so happened that this last weekend turned out to be all you can eat prime rib. Yup, that’s right, you heard me, all you can eat prime rib. I am here to tell you that it was pretty good too. Why don’t I give your funny bone a little tickle? What do you get if you cross a sports reporter with a vegetable? A common tater!
