September 14

Settling in for a long winter's nap, Jennie arrived home from her exhausting week at work and went straight to bed. Not anxious to interrupt her from hibernation, I suppose I should wake her around 8 or 9 to supply her daily vitamins, give her a little supper in bed, and tuck her in for more sleepy time. She has always been a light sleeper, so I must tiptoe through the house and be mindful of the dead. While I am perky and full of smiles after sleep, Jennie is quite the polar opposite.

Lace 'em up, hockey fans! Today marked the first day of on-ice drills and scrimmages for the Predators. As the final game day roster of 23 is whittled down from 55, I will post minor league and junior reassignments as well as releases. Here is how they are divided up to begin camp:
