$25.00 Poorer

Last year Matthew was a goaltender for the Don Mills Diamonds. This year he wanted to be a forward and today he played his first game. Most games are on Saturday but we had to miss church for today's season opener. Carol couldn't come because we were having an OPEN HOUSE here so she told Matthew that she'd give him $5.00 if he scored a goal.

She'll have to use another means of motivation because Matthew scored 5 goals and added 2 assists in the Diamonds' 8-7 win over the Durham Dragons. He was so excited he could barely contain himself. The coach, realizing that Carol and I were going to be in the poor house, put Matthew back on defence partway through the game but he still scored while playing back.

CONGRATULATIONS Matthew! Your dad was proud of you!
