Aww…some Monday’s Music Moves Me

Aww…some Monday

It was an aww…some week-end. Friday the family took a six hour drive to Magnolia, Arkansas to watch our youngest grand daughter compete in the conference championships track meet. Her specialty is high jump and she competed at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning.

We arrived at the track at 9:30 and she already had her “Game Face” on. The skies were overcast, the temperature was in the low 50’s with a north breeze blowing…it was chilly. The competition started with twelve competitors and she easily cleared the bar at 5′-0″. By the time the bar was set at 5′-3″ there were only four jumpers left and at 5′-4″ two of them left the fray. The bar was set at 5′-5″ and our girl cleared it on the first attempt. Both of the final jumpers failed at 5′-6″ but our grand daughter had zero misses until then and the other jumper had missed once so our girl is the 2021 conference champion as a freshman!!! Raise the bar!!!

Monday’s Music Moves Me

Well, it’s another free choice week at 4M and I am going to keep it simple today. Our youngest granddaughter’s college mascot is the Muleriders, so in honor of her conference championship performance I give you this.

So, what have you been listening to this week?

    That was some contrast between the game face and the winning face. Congrats to your granddaughter on setting a school record. Muleskinner Blues was a nice upbeat way to start my work day.

  3. Wow, your granddaughter can really jump! 5’5″ is as tall as one of my daughters and is 3″ taller than me. How tall is your girl? I’ve always wondered about such things. I’m sure one’s height plays into this a little bit but training and skill is the majority of it. Congrats to the champ! I know you’re proud of her. 🙂 What am I listening to this week? This is the first song up for me to start my week off. It’s certainly different from my normal listening but I found the old bluegrass sound transported me to days of my youth. There was a lot of bluegrass played in my folks home. Thanks for sharing and for being apart of the 4M crew, my friend. Have a boogietastic week!

    1. Not yet. 5′-6″ will get provisional qualification to NCAA and 5′-7″ will get her automatic qualification. She still has one more invitational meet coming up. Stay tuned.
