Once Physical therapy was near completion, I started looking at what changes I could…Continue

Looks like. I am recovered from my back problem although I still do many core workouts to keep extra fit. Playing again with no pain. Life is good again.

Over the weekend, we had the McKinney Tennis Center's One Year Anniversary. It was a lot of fun. A bounce-house for the kids, face-painting, games, free food, live-music, raffles, etc. Lots of fun.

I bet I could have done better, but it was cold and nasty outside and we didn't…Continue

I'm sure this could run in a few categories:
1) Racquet freak: Gotta try the latest racquets, demo ten racquets when they come out at the start of the year. End up getting six of the same, then an itch happens. You buy a different one, then have to sell the six when that new one plays better. Then…Continue
