Gavi admires her frog while holding up her letter

Tummy trouble kept me home from work today, but I had to gather myself together enough to go to the school Fencing Awards Banquet this evening where Gavi received her letter.

I'm a little sad my father, of blessed memory, wasn't able to see this. He lettered in three sports (football, basketball, and baseball) in each of his four years of high school in Milaca. I won't say I was a disappointment to him, because I don't for a moment believe that, but I do know he'd have liked it if I'd been more inclined towards athletics. So I believe seeing Gavi letter would have been a very sweet moment for him.

For that matter, it was a very sweet moment for me. I am very proud of her. I'm also very proud that the team voted her the "most improved" sabre fencer this year. Yay Gavi! Way to go!

Yay Gavi!

Her frog? What's with her frog? Is it a most improved frog?

Yes, her frog. I suppose it could be a “most improved” frog as well, but it’s actually … well, here. I’ll let her tell it. In my latest post.

That's a charming photo. I do sense that there is a story behind the frog.

Thank you. There is, indeed, a story behind the frog. (Hmmmmm. Behind every frog there’s a … er … never mind.) See my recent post in which Gavi Reveals All.

Awesome! She's quite a young lady, Gavi is.

Indeed, indeed. Thanks!

Oh, Well Done!
From the picture (great picture Dad)
it would seem that the frog holds more interest.

Re: Oh, Well Done!

(thanks!)
I think it's just that the frog is stranger … and more unexpected.

Congratulations to Gavi.

So will the frog or the letter get sewed onto her letter jacket?
Or will she also have a frog jacket?
Fred A Levy Haskell: Fredcritter eyes onlyfredcritter on March 6th, 2008 11:00 pm (UTC)

((Anonymous))?? Come out, come out, whoever you are!

I passed your question(s) along to Gavi. She laughed.

Me, I think a frog jacket would be just the thing! It's even obvious what we'd use instead of zippers to keep it closed. Maybe I should put my head together with Susan and gerisullivan and see what we can come up with…
