Yup, that's me fencing foil this past Saturday at Binghamton University. This was my first competition since my knee surgery back in June. Good news...the knee is still attached. Even better news... I placed 5th out of 14 in mixed foil. For me at my age, that's not too shabby :)
It's been a while...blah blah blah. Life has been busy, blah blah blah. Sorry I've been away blah blah blah. I'm a taxi mom blah blah blah.
Okay good. So we've got that all out the way now so I can get down to what's on my mind.
Last night, I had time to think.
Who knew that would be a luxury item.
Time to think.
Well these days it is. So back to it. I had time to think and I had a potential Aha moment. Of course we'll have to see if this does eventually pan out but I am happy to say that there are still brain cells in my head that are functioning and that are excited to be doing just that.
This is what I was thinking about. Yes that darn nemesis of mine. Ella!!! (Said like Stella a la Streetcar Named Desire.)
If you are new to my blog then I will mention that Ella Kerr Smith Dixon, my paternal great grandmother has a tendency to keep me up late at night.
What if Ella's mom was a Henry and not a Murphy? Or what if she was both?
