Vaught’s note: Here is a guest post by Linda Sinclair that you are going to love and it shows why I love this blog so much because of the folks we have come here to read and share information.

I don’t know whose idea it is to make us wait so long between games but Wednesday it seemed like it really didn’t matter. I had been having withdrawal since the last game and was hoping Thursday would get here sooner than later. I even started working on my income tax I was so desperate for a distraction. Trying to converse with the dust bunnies was not getting me anywhere. I guess the best thing about them is they always agree, they don’t talk back, they don’t want, they don’t have to be fed and if I ignore them they aren’t pawing me like Cali, the wild thing dog, who has gotten in a habit of doing it lately. As soon as she wakes up from a nap on her UK bed my daughter-in-law made for her she wants my undivided attention. Dogs!
So Wednesday, another gloomy day with rain in the morning and sun in the afternoon meant it was 1 day closer to the SEC start of the season and Kentucky basketball. Around 5 pm tonight there was a knock on my door. I normally don’t answer the door unless I see who is there first. However, today I did and boy was I glad I opened that door. The postman had a box for me. I guess it was too big for him to carry in his mail bag. I had no idea what was in it, it was too big for a pair of tickets to a game, a check for a million dollars and too small for a Ferrari California. George Clooney could not have fit in it either.
All loyal Vaught’s Views readers know I occasionally write an article for Larry, although he did not publish my last one, what’s with that Larry or did you? Blonde moment, don’t remember. You also know I was the number one comment poster last year and I don’t even post on every story. But I was #1, I was crowned the Queen and it was not the first time. I kept asking for my first place prize and didn’t get one, no one answered my question. Would you not expect a prize for first place? I never win any prizes; lottery, raffles, stick of gum, cakes or baskets of fruit. I would think this once I would win something. No wonder I live in Loserville! Actually, I live in Lexington West but that is another story.
Evidently someone did take notice of my first place no prize winning status. He asked I send him an email with my address. He said he would send me my prize. I was expecting a UK magnet, key chain, earrings or stuffed bear, something nice and sweet.
But NO! I did not get any of those things. I was in a state of shock when I opened the box, which had written on the side, “For the Queen of the Bluegrass Go Cats” and “Nice job Linda.” I opened the box and almost messed my pants, almost had a heart attack and had to catch my breath! Speechless, absolutely speechless and I think the evil twin sister is hiding because I have not heard from her.
Inside that box was a blue and white basketball signed by Coach Cal, Darius Miller, Doron Lamb, Brandon Knight, DeAndre Liggins and Josh Harrellson. Whoa, I still have not recovered. I am on cloud nine, I am in 7th Heaven, I’m feeling warm and BLUE all over!
Thank you Larry T Clements, you made my day and you made this old woman fell very special. I never ever expected something so special! I hope this was an extra one and not the only one you have!
Livin’ Blue & Lovin’ It! Go Cats.
