Fly, Eagles, Fly

Sunday we were glued to the football championships as we had high interest in both games: we have at least six sisters that grew up in either Philadelphia itself or in the nearby areas. Two of them were in the group with whom I watched the game. The "football gods" were with us as the Eagles won the first game and a trip to the Super Bowl in two weeks. Here's the song every Philadelphian can sing at a moment's notice:  "Fly Eagles Fly" !

First kite flying at the peninsula for 2023!

Our Benedictine friends in Cullman, Alabama were cheering with us, as both the Eagle's quarterback and one of its top receivers played their college ball at the University of Alabama---winning national championships along the way.

Then in the second game the winner, the Kansas City Chiefs, will be the favorite of another Benedictine community, the sisters of Atchison, KS, which is located about 30 miles north of KC.

On another note our "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" contest has been a real hit. The sisters have really enjoyed the display of darling "little girls." Here's another one of the five groups...can you match any photos with names? 

The contest ends mid-week, just in time for the next one to start: The 23rd annual Sister Lenore Shaw memorial Super Bowl Pool. There will be four happy winners, one each quarter, as we continue the tradition started by Lenore of "friendly guessing" on the Super Bowl winner. And that will end the events from yours truly--the unofficial, unelected and untrained winter activities director!
