I hope the Thanksgiving Break gave you the opportunity to gather with family and friends and reflect on all that you are grateful for. Only one week left in November before entering the final month of 2018. Hard to believe!
Did you throw all of your romaine lettuce away? https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2018/o157h7-11-18/index.html More likely to happen? Me dying from eating romaine lettuce or BYU winning a football game over archrival Utah while I am still alive?
Some BYU football losses are more painful than others. After going up 20-0 to the Utes in the heated rivalry game Saturday night, Utah stormed back in the second half to win the game 35 – 27. That is eight consecutive games the Utes have prevailed over the Cougars. Not that my grandchildren are old enough to care, but none of them have any memory of BYU ever beating Utah in a football game. I’m sure all of you Ute fans rejoice to hear me and other BYU alumni say, “Will the misery ever end?”

I recently had a kindergartner come into my office to tell me that another kindergartner was using “potty words” on the playground. As an educator for 35 years, 22 at the high school level, I have heard my fair share of inappropriate language in the school, so I started preparing myself for what might constitute “potty words” in the mind of a kindergartner. When I asked the little boy what he had heard on the playground from the offending student, he said, “Poop, pee and fart.” Gotta love working in an elementary school in Alpine, Utah!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
