From Nancy's deck, this little guy sits on one of the shelve units she has around the deck.

Of course if it is OLE MISS, it is all about cardinal red and navy blue - both chosen to mimic the colors of Harvard and Yale...

So Saturday morning at 3:30am my phone rings. Never good news. It was my ex, Allyson, calling to tell me Matt had 'been jumped and beaten up'.

That was how she heard it at least. What actually happened was someone was asked to leave a party Matt was at and then person showed up sometime later with two friends. The person whose home the party was at asked Matt to come outside and ask the three guys to leave.

Witnessed by neighbors (one of them a retired police chief of the neighboring town), Matt tried to diffuse the situation and was sucker-punched and then thrown to the ground face first.

The two were separated and the three who broke up the party fled the scene. Matt ended up with 14 stitches in his lip, some road rash on his face and forehead and a swollen eye.

The other person ended up with a subpoena to appear in court for simple assault.

Lets see if justice speaks in this case...

Tanner.”Now, she’s set to star alongside Peri Gilpin (“Frasier”) as the soon-to-be step-mom to one of the top female gymnasts in “Make It Or Break It,”a new ABC Family show which is set in the world of competitive gymnastics.

  12. Mimi Lenox Says:
  13. That's awful! I hope his aches and pains and bruises heal quickly. He was trying to do the right thing and got caught up in something ugly. Yes, let's watch the wheels of justice turn.

  14. katherine. Says:
  15. those phone calls TOTALLY freak us parents out. Glad he is gonna be okay...

    I trust you'll take care of them, Vinny.

  17. TRAVIS: he is pretty beat up...but nothing broken

    SOUTHERN: Hopefully

    PATTI: He is a quick healer indeed.

    MIMI: We will watch and it took my mind off of trying to find out why I am showing up as 'disgusted'

  30. I hope Guido & Bruno are still on retainer....

    Good thoughts for Matt.


  31. Ralph Says:
  32. Sorry about Matt, these things need not ever happen...The saying is so true "Blessed are the peacemakers". Although he was treated so badly, we can only wonder and how badly someone could have been hurt if Matt wasn't there. I'm glad he is a good healer - nobody needs those really early AM calls...

  33. Tug Says:
  34. DANG...sorry to hear that about Matt, and I'm hoping for justice and a big dose of karma for the other 3.

    Thanks HUGS

    RALPH: Thank you Sir...

    TUG: Thanks my friend...karma does rule

  36. Unknown Says:
  37. You just know if you get a call in the middle of the night, it's either a wrong number or something seriously wrong. Glad it wasn't as bad as it could be, but it still sucks. Hopefully justice will prevail...

  38. RW Says:
  39. Sorry to hear that about Matt. Here is to some quick healing!

  40. Anonymous Says:
  41. Ugh hate to hear Matt was hurt, I'm glad though that it didn't escalate to anything worse and yeah I hope that idiot who did it get's his in court.grrrr

  42. Coco Says:
  43. Thank you for the birthday wishes and the CAKE! *HUG*

    It was my last day of work until September, and there were lots of friends, triple chocolate cake and cold beer, so pretty much a perfect birthday.

    I hope Matt is okay, Vinny. That other guy is just a big Stoopid and he'll get what he deserves, one way or another. Bad guys always do. That's what the B-man tells me, anyway. *HUGS for the worried Dad*

  44. Dana Says:
  45. Sorry to hear about Matt! I'm guessing this will be a story with a happy ending!
