Goings at Casa De Garabaldi

First off My friend and blogbuddy OldNFO released the 5th book of what supposed to be a trilogy, but the books were so well received that they kinda took on a life of their own.  I wouldn't be surprised to see a 6th or a seventh book in the near future.


Here is the Link to buy


Never count an old man out, even when he’s hanging up his hat!
Deputy Sheriff John Cronin is looking forward to a quiet retirement, working on the ranch, and handing it off to his granddaughter Jesse. And he’s got to pass on a generation worth of investigations, but it’s not as easy as handing over the case files and the keys. First, he’s got to train Aaron Miller to fill his role, from the way to dress for rural juries to the finer points of stakeouts and murder investigations, Texas style.
Between the oil patch workers and the cartel’s drug runners, there are plenty of loose ends for him to tie off… or terminate…
    Excellent book and I recommend it to anybody that likes a good adventure with a western flair.

    I also went to my first Professional soccer game in the United States on Sunday.  I went a few times when I was stationed in Germany and my favorite team was "FC Bayern".  
    It was an adventure, let me tell you, the fans were excited, the team played well, and we broke the attendance record for a Soccer game in the United States over 72,000 fans.   When they played the national anthem, there were no spoiled football players virtue signalling by kneeling or other stuff.  The energy level was incredible, and it was totally different than with the NFL games.  I think I have a team I can watch since the NFL laid down on me 2 years ago with the virtue signaling.  When the team scored a goal, the whole stadium shook with the clapping, cheering, hollering feet stamping, it was a whole different experience.



“United” – Evolution of Our Name

The time is now, a new era has dawned. Atlanta has welcomed the beautiful game.
Atlanta was born as a railroad town and today is a global hub for travel and commerce. It is in our DNA to connect and unite.
Atlanta United joined Major League Soccer in 2017, breaking multiple league records on the way to the playoffs in its inaugural season. The club set the MLS record for season ticket sales as well as records for single-game, single-season average, and total home attendance.
Owned by one of the city’s most influential businessmen and philanthropists, Arthur M. Blank, and led by club President Darren Eales, Atlanta United plays its home matches at state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium located in downtown Atlanta.
Atlanta is a modern, international city that embraces all its citizens, creating an inclusive fan base that is progressive and passionate. A fan base that becomes one voice. We all gather together and stand united.
We are a football club because we are more than just the team: we are the fans, we are the community, we are Atlanta, taken from the voices of the citizens.
This is our City. This is our Club.
We are Atlanta United FC.
 

Logo Evolution

The Atlanta United FC logo was constructed utilizing elements of Atlanta’s rich history and culture, underscoring the city’s progressive and passionate voice.
