lions pride...

We discovered earlier this year that the lion is the pride of Kenya.

The Kenyan lions are a pretty laid back lot!

Yesterday we watched the B.C. Lions in action...
our NFL football team playing in the championship game on home turf.
Not so laid back...
when the coveted Grey Cup is on the line.
We watched from the comfort of our couch...
while we snacked on oranges (the right colour) and nuts.
The plan had been to join a group of friends at a 'grey cup party'.
However, hubby came down with a bad case of 'orange eye'...
(otherwise known as pink eye)...
which we think the grands shared with him.

So we stayed home...

and ate the hot taco dip all by ourselves...
and cheered on the home team.

I'm not that informed when it comes to football...
but there was no doubt as to who won the game.

After starting the season with a dismal record...
the B.C. Lions came out on top!

I think there is a lesson here for all of us.

It's not how we start that matters most...
it's how we finish!

Have a wonderful Monday...


  1. Sounds like you enjoyed watching the game! And the outcome! It's so true that finishing well is what really matters.

  2. Congratulationa to the B.C. Lions! I know how much fun it is to see the hometown win a championship.

    I hope your husband's eye heals quickly!

  3. Oh how awwwwfffuulll that you had to stay home and eat the taco dip all by yourselves. (Though orange eye is no fun at all. Do you guys have OTC meds for that?) Congrats on the Lions' win!

  4. I loved your take on this...from African Lions to BC Lions. I wonder where we got our name.
    I love your last quote.
    Hopefully you are up for more events.
    Keep Roaring!

  5. That was a very clever segue, Judy! We enjoyed the game too. So sorry to hear about E's eye. The grandchildren share some not-so-pleasant things!

  6. Isn't nice we can still celebrate when things come our way. Your dip looks so good!

  7. I love your photos! Great post Judy. I hope that stink eye as Terry calls it. gone as quick as it came.

  8. I love your photos! Great post Judy. I hope that stink eye as Terry calls it. gone as quick as it came.

  9. I like how you can see life lessons in everything. I never heard of "pink eye" being called "orange eye", but I know it spreads quickly.

    Congratulations on your Lion's win! That snack you had must have helped your husband feel better. It looked so good!

  10. Oh good now I understand the whole reason for oranges, etc. with the food watching the game. Glad you had comfort food while you watched!!
