Family Fridays-More Chicago Memories

It is Another Beautiful Friday, It it  Time  4 Family Fridays with Lori@Peterson St. Louis and Amy
As  Chicago Bulls won their last Basketball Championship (my son, 3 years old), the whole city was in cheery mood of all kinds of celebration, I loved watching NBA on NBC at the time, because I used to play basketball while I was in High School.
Chicago has many parks, playgrounds..My son (above, 2 and a half years old) loved playing in the playground, where he could swing, slide, and meet other playmates…I have met many other spouses or grandparents who were with little kids at parks there….a nice place to socialize and exchange information…
University of Chicago view
Jordan, Pipen, Dennis, I remember their performances as they worked as stars to win… 😉
The World Famous Coach of The Chicago Bulls and The MVP winner, Michael Jordan, and more… they have made a great team, weren’t they?
I loved Chicago Bulls, I enjoyed watching their games and how they have overcome challenges, rumors, and more to stand on top of the basketball world at that time period, they have made history…..They inspire people from all walks of life,….
The record is there,
The world is aware.
The party may be over,
But the spirits are never going to disappear!
Happy Friday,
Have A Fantastic Weekend with Your loved Ones!

Family Fridays-Posts In Blogs Form A Show (Celebrating Doraz’s 2 Years Blogging Fun)

Posts in blogs form a show,

Your arts are all talented though.

You will know me fair,

after I leave you a comment there.


My fingers must think it queer

To type in words with no one near.

Among links and bottles of beer,

I see the livelihood in blog-sphere.


The temperature is as high as 111,

Folks on earth dream of heaven.

Between crowded pools and steaming lakes,

I pray for cold breeze and milk shakes.


Posts are beautiful, delightful and deep,

I will have promises to keep,

And challenge to conquer before I sleep,

And miles to go before I stop.


This poem is written in celebrating blogging in general, especially 4 Doraz’s who has been blogging for more than two years, 1800 posts…Amazing achievements and efforts …Her posts are positive, delightful, and encouraging to read.

For Doraz, Happy Anniversary of Blogging Love!

Yesterday I Took A Wrong Turn

I took a wrong turn
and ended up on a cliff;
I plan my path before I start,
I want to be smart
and accomplish things with firm belief.


I’ll bury all of the sorrows
and let go of errors,
I’ll know when to stop
and orchestra my way to the top.

Family Fridays-Bring Home The Best


Boys and girls,

Go to sleep,

Dream about aliens and fairies,

Wake up in a flying spaceship.



Let the world fight,

Let the enemy fall,

Let your ideas of wars offer insight,

Keep standing up tall.



Dream on and on,

Fly toward the moon,

Leave behind the warnings over the phone,

Come home soon.



Jingle all the way,

Let your words make more sense,

Become mindful today,

You can make a difference.



Grownups and children,

Enjoy a good rest,

Keep your course sailing in the ocean,

Bring home the best.
