Oh, What A Week!

Congratulations goes out to my 17-year old grandson, Benjamin Dinkins, who had the most awesome week of his life. Ben attends Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale and plays varsity football for the Panthers. After nine season games in which he received very few passes thrown to him as one of their wide receivers, he scored his first touchdown against Coral Gables High. To add the frosting on his cake for the week, the Coral Gables High game was also their homecoming game, and just two weeks ago his fellow students voted him as "Mr. Dillard". So, he got the honor of escorting the homecoming queen during half-time festivities and to be crowned as the homecoming king. Oh, what a week for Mr. Dinkins.

Congratulations, Grandson! Go, "Ben-Ben"!!!!!!!! (a.k.a. Man Cub)

Homecoming week started off with the
football players substituting as cheerleaders.
It was a long time coming, but here's the scoring catch.Oh, happy day!
