September 18, 2018 • Page 2 Dave Says shop online at www.missourivalleyshopper.com Planning And Success Dear Dave, I’m stuck in a dead-end job, and I only have a high school diploma. I’ve never minded long hours and hard work, but I’ve begun to realize I need to have a better career, so I can spend more time with my kids. I feel like I’m missing out on their lives, because I work 65 to 70 hours every week. Do you have any advice on how to change my situation? Tim Dear Tim, Asking questions and exploring your options like this is a much smarter move than simply walking away from an unsatisfying job situation — especially when you have a family to think about. I’m glad you’re wise enough to take a thoughtful look at the situation, instead of making a rash decision that could have a negative impact on you and your family. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to improve yourself in terms of education or your career. But before you do any of that, you’ve got to have a definite direction in mind. You need an in-depth, detailed game plan for the next three or four years that’s designed to put you where you want to be.

I found out the girls played against each other, much different from when I was in high school. I remember Coach gathering us football players in the dressing room before practice on Thursday, the day before a big game. I thought he was going to give us a pep talk, but the topic was about the next week. “Okay,” he said, “Monday is the first day of Homecoming week, so first thing in the afternoon, before practice, we have the Powder Puff football game. Those of you who are starters will be playing, so come here right after you eat lunch. The rest of you are cheerleaders.” “Hey, Len,” I said as we headed to practice, “what’s Powder Puff football?” “What rock did you crawl out from under?” Lenny replied. “Haven’t you seen a Powder Puff game before?” I shook my head. “I only started football in my junior year, and besides, my dad needed me for harvest every minute possible in the fall.” “Well, the starting football team plays against the girls,” Lenny said. “Won’t the girls get hurt?” I asked. “Don’t worry,” he replied. “Things are equalized in their favor, and they always win. In fact, the boys have nev- If Custom Drilling Of Winter Wheat With Starter Fertilizer Contact any of our locations for details: you read this you know... advertising pays! • Freeman 605-925-7230 • Menno 605-387-5513 • Tripp 605-935-6106 • Hurley 605-327-3261 BULK WINTER WHEAT SEED VARIETIES AVAILABLE: Certified SY Wolf • Certified Redfield Certified SY Sunrise Call the Missouri Valley Shopper at 665-5884 or stop by to place your ad today! 319 Walnut St. • Yankton MV Shopper Save 10 Off A Gallon Of Gas When You Use MV Shopper Your Sinclair Card M I S S O U R I VA L L E Y M I S S O U R I VA L L E Y ¢ Prices Best !

You’ll see.” On Monday afternoon, we went to the football field. We had a slight introduction before the game. The first thing I learned was that every boy had one arm, his dominant arm, tied behind his back. We all had flags in our back pockets. The girls were allowed to tackle or grab the flag. The boys could not tackle, but could only grab flags. It didn’t take me long to see the challenge. When the game started, the girls opted to receive. I got ready to kick off. But just before I could, our teammates on the sideline who were all dressed in cheerleading costumes from their mothers, swarmed us, and the kick went nowhere. The girls had the ball at midfield. The girls had no rules, and after the ball was hiked, all girls except the ball carrier grabbed a guy and held onto his jersey so he couldn’t do anything. Two held onto me. That was when I realized there were more than the normal eleven girls on the field. With the other girls holding onto us, the girl with the ball made a touchdown. It was then our turn to receive. But have you ever tried to catch a ball or pick one up with one hand tied behind your back? It was a comedy of errors, and the crowd roared with laughter. We had barely gotten the ball when the girls all grabbed the boy who had it and piled on him. We tried to defend, but it’s hard with one hand tied behind M I S S O U R I VA L L E Y your back and girls grabbing your jersey. The game went the same way all afternoon, and the score was 41 to zero. We had possession and came to a huddle for the last play of the game “Okay,” Lenny said. “We can’t win, but we could still make history if we can even score a point.” We decided to do a big fake. The quarterback would act like he was giving the ball to the halfback, then all of the team, except the quarterback and me, would move to the right with the halfback. The quarterback and I would go left and move quickly down the field. The fake worked beautifully. All fifteen or so girls moved with the team, leaving an open field in front of the quarterback and me. With me flanking him, getting in the way of any girl who came at us, the quarterback moved quickly toward the goal line. It seemed sure that we would score the first points ever for guys playing powder puff football. But we forgot about all of the boys in the cheerleader outfits on the edge of the field. Just about the time we reached the ten-yard line, the boys flooded onto the field and took both the quarterback and me down. Then the girls all piled on to end the game. And so the score stayed 41 to 0. We didn’t go down in history, we just went down, and we still laugh about it. g& nin Di ent inm rta nte E
