Sunday, 2 July 2017 – Sunday Papers & Sports Illustrated

Sunday I spent some time an old friend – the papers. I didn’t read any more of Bargain Fever as the day sort of slipped away. My youngest daughter and I went out and got some groceries @ Publix where I grabbed a copy of the Pensacola News-Journal and I couldn’t resist the “Where Are They Now?” Issue of Sports Illustrated . On the way back, we stopped in a Tom Thumb and bought the Mobile Press-Register. We also have a digital subscription to the New York Times. So, we had plenty to read.

Here are some highlights from my Sunday reading –

About mobilemojoman

I have been a Mobile resident for about a decade. Working as a college professor keeps me off the streets and pays the bills. I am married to a woman (the MojoWoman) who is a much better person than I am and we have two beautiful girls who keep us both jumping. My interests are varied - food & drink, sports, politics, exercise, books, travel, Mardi Gras, and all of life's rich pageant. In the future, I'd like to learn more about sailing, photography, Cajun/Creole cooking, making beer and wine, and writing.
