Never Say Never

Oldies like myself will remember how Sean Connery said he would never do another James Bond movie, yet years later he stared in "Never Say Never Again". When our daughter was born and was old enough to want a hand held video game player, I said, "Never. I do not want one of those in our house." Our daughter, now 19 is a good student, and an excellant reader. While most kids her age are playing video games, she likes to curl up with a good book. This Christmas has brought a major change to our home. I bought the family a Wii for Christmas. I got the sports pack that includes tennis, bowling, golf, etc... Unlike the old video games, you have to get up off the couch and move around. We actually broke a sweat playing tennis. Playing singles inside is easy, doubles with two people swinging their arms around gets a little tricky. In fact, I got clobbered on the head as I went for a backhand shot. We need a bigger living room to go with the new Wii. When playing a game you have virtual players called Mii's. Each person creates their own Mii. My husband's looks pretty much like he does. Mine not so and Susan's almost. My husband likes the boxing, he can get his manly aggressions out without hurting himself or anyone else. I want to add a Wii Fit program so I can exercise with it. Well I need to go and get my Christmas letters out, I guess I could wait until July and say they are Christmas in July letters. Nah, I'll do it now. Until next time. Don't worry about eating too much Apple pie, it's just fruit after all.
