Scandal! N Caught In Arms of Gumby

Last sighted with WGHS football fan Gumby and Bill Beggs, N continues her free spirited ways. Webster Groves High School won the traditional football game against Kirkwood, restoring the world to its natural order. Besides the Beggs brunch, Turkey Day also included a superb Thanksgiving dinner at Maria Canella's house.

Autumn Chunk-a-sonic Spectacular

The first major leaf raking of the season featured some spectacular acrobatics by the astounding dog Chunk, who was able to leap from tall trees with a single bound in his single-minded pursuit of the elusive frisbee. Amidst the distraction of flying dogs, the side yard and front yard were for an all too ephemeral moment devoid of leaves.

Marcel, Renny Finish XC Season Strong

M with Coach Dan Sebben

R and M finished out the Webster Groves High School cross country season this week.  M had an injury riddled season, with a sore knee and two twisted ankles.   The varsity team made the sectionals (sort of like the playoffs) this year for the first time.  In the final race of his high school career, he managed his best time of the year 17:50.  Unfortunately, he missed qualifying for the state championships by a slim margin. M finished as a four year cross country athlete with the last two years being at varsity level. M was MVP of the team last season, but due to injuries was not his usual self in his senior year.

R completed a successful second season, coming back from a broken toe to run a 20:06 in his final race.
