This Wednesday Sophia and I went to the Montpelier boys basketball team’s game against U-32, a semi-final game in the Vermont State Tournament. I hadn’t watched boys basketball in years and it was intensely enjoyable, for an old high school jock who is dedicated to his love of sports.
These kids went all out. They were a team first and foremost, each boy feeding off the energy of his buddies, quite honestly rooting for the success of his teammates more than for himself.
And they did great, leading the entire game, and finally winning by about 20 points. Sophia had done yeoman’s work in getting her fellow Montpelier students to support the team very loudly and certainly. We drove home happily looking forward to the Finals against Fair Haven, on Saturday afternoon at the Barre Auditorium. You should go, anyone would enjoy it.
Then, not to be outdone, Sharon went to Bethany’s birthday party, held at Three Penny, starting just when the game started. The theme for the party was sparkle and shine, Bethany wanting her friends to be as “bright on the outside as I know you are on the inside.” Sharon brought as a gift a hand sized LED device that was a light show and almost a party ball, and looked elegant with the sparkles she’d applied to her body. That too, actually was quite exciting. She looked great.
So don’t forget that though we are selling the business we are still going forward with running the market as we have for years. We want the market to be the place you want to be. Sharon and I are here full time until we do sell, running the store the way we always do. Just so you know.
