The dance concert that 2 of my daughters performed in last night was only 3 hours long instead of the expected 4.   My other pack members were near rejoicing.

One of my sons pointed out that no one even fell asleep “…except for dad, but just for a little while and he didn’t snore much.”

Well, I’ll tell ya.

Sports puts numbers on the identical players.
