A Banner Week

Blogger does not think Villanova is a word. One would think that wining the NCAA Basketball Championship (Div I) we could get official 'word' status without having to add it to a personal dictionary. Hmphh!

So anyway, because of that life in this area has been a bit wild and crazy this week. Police escorts back to campus, a parade and yesterday it snowed. April 9, 2016 it snowed. I don't think the events are related but it has been a crazy week.

A friend bought me a Villanova championship t-shirt. It says "Built on Banners" with dates and such. I'm really not sure what "Built on Banners" means. I know the team gets a banner to hang in their gym but it's not like we have tons of them having only won once before. And even if we had tons of them that's a weird thing to say on a t-shirt or anywhere. BUT we did win, it's a championship shirt and I will wear it proudly whenever I can even if I have to shrug when folks ask what does that mean?

I enjoyed a wonderful hike at Ridley Creek State Park today (as most of them are). The sun came out and the snow sparkled. I was  glad to have my hiking poles. I don't need them for inclines or declines in this park but I find that having my hands above my elbows keeps them from swelling. Today the polls also helped in some spots that were covered in ice as the snowfall last night turned to rain before stopping and then froze overnight. I enjoyed hearing my feet crunch through the snow and only almost wiped out on some black ice when making a road crossing. Almost but not quite thankfully.

Here are some more photos of the morning.
