New Ventures

Hello All,

I hope things have been well with everyone. I'm just stopping by to say hey...since I can't seem to concentrate on the matters of my business (smile). Well, there's lots going on, but I'm at a mental standstill...there's some serious spring cleaning going on in my head. I was told once (ok, a million times) that I think too much, probably the truest statement ever made about me, so I rest.

My son (the oldest) told me "Mom, I know what I want to do if I don't get into the NFL - I want to be a screen-writer." I lite up like a bulb. Not because I love screen-writing, but because I was watching my baby evolve. He'd based this new venture on a self discovered talent. Something that would require a lot of work on his part...something that would cause him to delve even deeper into that well of creativity that exist within him; my little boy was becoming even more of a man right before me and I was excited.

This new venture of his has had my minds wheels spinning for the past week (I actually just checked out a book on screen-writing for him). I'm trying to slow myself down; I don't want to be overly enthusiastic and start putting TOO much pressure on

I don't think I've talked about my youngest son much, but he's been taking paino lessons to learn to read music. He taught himself to play the keyboards some years ago. He's been playing by hearing in past years. He's got this crazy (crazy cool) memory...he actually knows all 50 states by shape. Now, he's off to the theater...he just called and told me he's going to be in a school play (details to follow). Heck, maybe his brother can write something for him to act in...HUM!!!

Well...tata for now. I'll keep you guys posted on the Knewness.

I'm so sorry (you) lol...some tribute I've given. So, since I'm not so good at this, I'll let this tribute (that someone else did) speak for me. At the end of the day, it means the same thing...WE LOVE YOU MR. DOWNING!!!

Here is a tribute from another fan.

Boy, men could sure learn something about pleasing women just by listening to Mr. Downing. Check out his rap to this
