Attention to detail can set the tone

I’ve thought more about napkins recently than at any other time in my life.

It is because I am working with a nonprofit executive on an upcoming event, and I watched her spend significant time picking out the napkins. She went back and forth between sizes and textures and colors.

Look I’m not a Neanderthal, but napkins really don’t hold much fascination for me. I use mine and crumple it up. Sometimes I crumple it up before I use it.

Seriously, I’m the kind of guy who is fine with a paper towel torn off the roll and 45 minutes of looking at assorted napkins didn’t change my mind.

But it did remind me of a fundamental guideline: Details matter.

Lady Hornets fall to Sunnyvale in bi-district, 47-42

By Michael V. Hannigan

KAUFMAN — The Athens Lady Hornets gave the No. 4 ranked team in the state all it could handle Monday night, but came up just short against Sunnyvale, 47-42, in bi-district playoff action.

Athens relied on relentless defensive pressure to push Sunnyvale to the edge, but free-throw shooting down the stretch proved to be the Lady Hornets undoing.

“It was one of our better defensive efforts for sure,” said Coach Jeff Teague. “I told them at halftime, we’re where we want to be because we’re playing defense.”

Athens led the game, 20-18, at the half.

Weather the storm like a Wisteria

Have you ever heard the old saw about the bendable reed and unbending tree?

The story is centuries old and comes in many forms, but the meaning is always the same. The unbending tree represents someone rigid and unyielding while the bendable reed has the ability to adapt. When a storm comes, the tree gets uprooted while the reed survives.

It’s a good lesson, but I’ve decided the parable pales in comparison to the example of the Wisteria bush.
