The 1st set was really good from Rafa but you gotta expect Nole to come back in, he's not number one for nothing.

I just read that Ernests is going to play Stockholm this year I'm stunned. He said he would never go back to Sweden after that prostitute incident. Well, I'm curious how he'll do there, my guess is not very well. I can already imagine his match thread(s) on GM full of insinuations

The next thing the boy does when he sees me is fistpump. This is his Rafa sign and it means that he asks me how Rafa is doing. He's been saying that this summer is trophy biting time for Rafa. He hasn't been wrong so far. Let's hope it lasts this summer.
I'm glad you were able to take him. You both would have been disappointed if you hadn't.

Yeah, I thought many European countries had a different Labour Day than Canada and the States do.

My goddaughter has hit puberty big time and she's in a "can't be bothered to wash or change clothes" phase. Not exactly the life of the party, these days.
High school is usually grades 9-12, or about 14-17-year-olds. about your godson. And I hope your goddaughter grows out of that phase soon! I would think it's more often the boys who do that than the girls!

Looking forward to hearing about it, JM, the trip in general and watching the USO final there.

Always good to see Bibberz if only because it means that Rafa has won.
I was sort of hoping on a visit from Linda, though. I hope she's doing well.

You haven't heard it all, though.

So, I panicked when I found out that the Expo finished on the last Thursday of August (the 29th) because I had the visit scheduled for the following day.

Yesterday, I saw a poster.... The Expo finishes on September 29.



Ah well, the important thing is that we saw it.

-------
My german niece has two kids. A 3,5-year old boy and a 6 months old girl (who has very cute ginger hair at the moment). Her son wants to grow his hair a bit. His mum used to cut his hair and it wasn't a good look so I'm pleased to see that the boy is starting to make his own hair decisions.

His hair sometimes falls into his eyes at the moment so, he asks for a hairclip.
His mother is said that she must have been quite naive that most people are no longer stuck in very strict ideas on what a boy or a girl should look like. However, she's amazed at some of the reactions she's getting, not from other kids but from adults, some of them highly educated: they tell her that it looks gay and girly and they have indicated that the worst fate a man can have is to be gay. Can you believe it?
----> The boy is not even 4 years old and his hair hasn't even reached his shoulder! For some, the combination of not very short hair + hairclip = gay, even if you're not even 4.

And even so, I thought that we had moved on from "men with longer hair = gay" stereotype since the Beatles. Apparently not.
It just goes to show that having a degree doesn't mean that you're wise.

If only my son had the kind of hair to allow being long

I swear I would have used everything on him, from polka-dots bows to Swarovski headbands

Oh wow, things that happen in the world.
The main thing is that the boy is happy.

P.S. I also have a degree, and am dumb as a sack of hammers. Or whatever the saying is.

Rafa gave an interview on Charlie Rose the other day. He talked about his upbringing, his career, and the match against Djokovic. It was pretty awesome. I DVRed it, but I think it may be available online. This might be a good place to start:
