"H" as in HOUSTON TEXANS for Alphabe-Thursday

It's time again for Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."

This week we are studying the letter "H" as in the HOUSTON TEXANS.
I think I've lived in Texas way too long.  I actually love football now.

It's a great diversion for me.  When the HOUSTON TEXANS play my mind zeros right in on the game.  All of my worries are shoved to the side.  For three hours I concentrate on football.

Football has helped keep me sane the last five years or so.

Sadly, this season is over for the HOUSTON TEXANS.  I'll still watch the playoffs and the Super Bowl, but not with as much intensity.

I'll still grab the sports section of the newspaper to see if there's anything about the TEXANS being reported.  I'll still tune into Sports Radio 610 occasionally to hear what they're saying.  I'll look forward to the draft.  Before you know it football will be back.

I've even found a way to combine my love of football with my love of dolls.  I know it's a rather strange combination.

Please excuse my absence last week.  Real life got in the way.

Now head over to Ms. Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants.  Thanks for visiting.

    I learned to appreciate football when my son was young.

  2. I am glad you still like our team, Betty. The odds were way against them by having all those losses piled up. But they gave it a very good try, didn't they? I haven't let many Texan games go by without me there in front of the Telly. My daughter did take me once, the first year when they started.

    I am glad too that you put Real Life aside this week, I like your "H". STAY WARM !!!

  3. Now I know you nuts about dolls and footballs! lol That is so cute. I know what you mean about finding a hobby to keep you sane!!!!!!! lol Cute.

  4. Love your Ginny dolls and great post for H ~ Houston ~ not a football fan ~ lived with it all my life ~ Super Bowl can be fun ~

    Happy New Year,

  5. It's good that football relaxes you, lets you forget your problems for a while! Ginny looks cute with her football player friend. ;)

  6. We're Cowboys fans over here.... at least my hubby is, and I say I am! I like your football player's Texans helmet! Too cute!

    Oh Sorry Betty, hope your son is doing better now? About the temp. on my post of Yosemite - we were on an altitude of 5-6000 feet - about 45 degr.F during the day, dropping to 26 degr. at night .Blessings on this year for you and yours!

  8. Betty, thank you so much for your visit to my blog and for your very encouraging comment. Hearing that just made my evening and I had to call my son and let him know a 'good news' story.
    I had laugh at your combination of your two loves in that last photo. Too funny!

  9. nice that everyone has a diversion. Sorry yours is not going to the playoffs. {:-Deb

  10. If you talk about football it's probably what we call the American football and not soccer. Your football is rather unknown here and I only saw shortly sometimes in movies.

  11. You're the only person I know who combines dolls with football. That's a cute pic!!

  12. My consign moved to Dallas and that's the exact thing that happened to her. She is now a big football fan!


  13. Nice to be able to combine your interests! Happy 2015 still♪
