ON THE BACK BURNER

July 8

I think I know why soccer is so popular. It is a sport that kids with average bodies can play. They don't have to be extra tall to play, as in Basketball. They don't have to be solidly built like football players. I don't know how to describe baseball, but you have to have great hand eye coordination to play . And be able to stand for hours in the hot sun in left field. With soccer, you can be average size, tall ,short,a little chunky, a little thin. You just need to do what it is that soccer players do. Like run back and forth for many minutes. And have great eye,foot and head coordination. At least that is what I see. I don't follow soccer , but I was a soccer Grandma when my Grandson's played. I did the mini van thing, with juice boxes and treats. I filled in for my daughter when she couldn't do her duty as a soccer Mom. It was a fun activity for me. I loved it. I never minded sitting on a hard bench, if we were lucky enough to have a bench. I loved seeing these little guys try to kick a ball that came to their knees. I think back to this when I look at my grandson's today. How did they all get so old and I didn't.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
