How long is the packing list getting Sarge?

I can tell that January is going to be a big travel month. Chopper traffic has picked up in my area. I've missed having the helicopters buzz my house.

1987 Flyers' Ron Hextall becomes 1st goalie to actually score a goal

Ron Hextall was the first NHL grandson to play in the league. His father and grandfather had also played. Bryan Hextall Sr. played 11 seasons with the New York Rangers and won the scoring title in 1941-42. His son, Ron's father, played nine less glamorous years before retiring in 1976. Ron's Uncle Dennis also played in the league as a fourthline player of limited talent. Ron, however, was the first Hextall to venture into the net.

The result of his time as a skater, though, was that Ron became perhaps the game's most mobile goalie of all time. It also gave him a desire to do something no goalie had ever done before?score. Sure enough, the night of December 8, 1987, in a game against Chicago, the Flyers had a two-goal lead and the Hawks pulled their goalie in the last minute. Hextall got the puck near the side of his net and fired it in, the first time a goalie had ever shot a puck into the opposition goal. (Billy Smith of the Islanders was once credited with a goal for being the last player to touch the puck before the other team scored into its own goal.) Incredibly, Hextall replicated the feat in the playoffs. On April 11, 1989, he again fired the puck into the open net, against Washington, thus also becoming the first goalie to score in a playoff game.

Hi Gummy! Long time, no see. Had to share with you that I went exploring in our great state. I went all the way to Culpepper. (20 miles? heeheee) Haven't been there in years. Beautiful countryside!

How are things in your neck of the woods? We are still mowing grass here.

Honey.......we're still trying to figure out how they managed to get this development under way (of course we've speculated about money changing hands, but NAH no one would do that) BUT it is there regardless of all the protests that went on for years and years.

BTW, I am hoping it is my final! Please God! As for the bronzing thing, I'm not sure yet. I'll probably just stick in a book somewhere! Nah, just kidding. Maybe frame it. After all, I will be the first in my family to be a college grad!

And, I do appreciate positive thinking on your part!

Don't know if this has been posted yet, but this is an old Jewish folk saying:

"One should not stand at the foot of a sick person's bed, because that place is reserved for the guardian angel."

Happy Hanukkah

You know what one thing I hate about Fox news sometime they cover Xinurea news wire on Ticker or Interfax wire

If I was media mogul I be insist my news network link up to Interfax or Xinurea maybe just me

One thing I wouldn't hire those old farts at CBS news or CNN

THEY ARE OLD

Well report off BBC wire has US troops in Kabul messing with Rummy I saw BBC wire Rummy is not amused I bet he going get on Pentagon company get right equipment to US troops in Kabul

Also another report off BBC wire reporting that Pakstein claim they shoot off another missile after that intital report I told you about last night

World Tribune has report that nutty North Koreans gave wrong body back to wrong Japanese family

That wrong what there is no CSI in North Korea


Also if you haven't been watching Fox news we have serious car accient West Angeles Forest with NASA worker in Mini van crash over the mountain hill 3 so far are kill but there might 5 more trapped in Van
It is pretty bad

We here in SO CAL can't drive in the rain

Well it is true
