One of the things I like best about watching my grandkids' activities, is that for each sport, I have a new circle of friends.
Tonight, I'm watching my grandson's summer high school hockey game. I'm in my usual spot, in the back of the stands at center ice. I'm usually by myself. But, tonight, one of the mothers climbs up and sits with me. Her son has intermittently been on the same team as my grandson. I recognize her, but have only exchanged hellos and the occasional small talk.
