The football huddle was invented by Gallaudet University quarterback Paul D. Hubbard in 1892. The school was one of the first for the education of deaf, so plays were conveyed via hand signals.
 To stop other teams from stealing the plays, Hubbard had players form
 a tight-knit circle to call the plays.

December Days

A dreary month of weeping ,
Of cloud and fog and rain,
Is sorrowful December,
And all the winds complain.
For trees are bare and flowers are gone,
And birds have hushed all song,
And days are short and sunless'
And nights are dark and long'

But let us wait in patience,
The days are swift to go,
And even sorrow does not stay
 Long on the earth below;
Some days must be for weeping'
But God  and heaven remain' And after night of darkness
The sun will shine again.

Brown Thrasher

All though we call it a Brown Thrush it is not of the thrush family of  birds.
We had not seen this bird all summer, but he showed up when
 the ice covered the ground to eat sun flower seeds.
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December;
A magnificent thing
And sweet to remember:
"We are nearer to spring
Than we were in September."
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.
"From Streams in The Desert"


Two males and a female ,all puffed up and eating sunflower seeds.

We must never forget (Pearl Harbor Day)
On a Sunday 72 years ago December 7 1941.
