Miss me yet?

Sorry I have not been on here much.

Life is good. Although I have yet to find work, I am enjoying the quietness of the house when everyone is at school or work. I get to do quite a bit at my own pace.

Some good news.

Some of you know that my number 1 son Matt is in college (1st year) Orange Coast Community College. He took up rowing his senior year in high school with Capital Crew at the Sacramento Aquatic Center. his first year, he earned most inspirational athlete as he went from 6' 260lbs to 6' 1" 175 lbs and improved his rowing time significantly.

This past Saturday and Sunday he competed for the 2014 American Collegiate Rowing Association national championship for the Novice category 8 man crew plus coxswain.

I am happy to say the Orange Coast Novice 8 won gold on Sunday. National champions! They beat, UC Santa Barbara, Virginia, Michigan, Notre Dame, UC Davis and Boston College in that order.

They rowed their fastest time ever at 5:55.5 for 2000 meters. It was 5 seconds better than their heat win on Saturday.


Matt is second rower from left in the 1st picture.


Proud papa.

Re: Miss me yet?

Congrats to the Proud PAPA and Matt for both winning the Gold (and by a good margin it looks like!), and the tremendous weight loss. GOOD ON YA BOTH, bud! Good to hear from you; that you're getting some down time for yourself. Say hi to Patti for us, too.
