As odd as it may sound, this blog has loyal readers and both of them are patient folks, waiting eagerly for a post of any kind. But the blog has fallen by the wayside, yet again. I suspect it’s because I’ve gotten used to expressing my life in 140 characters (Twitter) and that my life has become so dull that I’m hard-pressed to use the full 140 characters to describe it, much less create blog posts.
This last weekend was the exception. Aunt Lily got me and The Bride down to Arizona for a little Cactus League spring training. The cherries, whipped cream, sprinkles and chocolate fudge on top was the quality time with her hubby Mike, her sons Chris and Dave, and the newest member of the family, Dave’s fiancé Marissa. They’re all really nice folks with good manners and quality grooming. (DNA tests are needed to confirm I’m related to them.)
There was also lots of baseball which is my idea of heaven.
Friday was the A’s and the Brewers. A’s won.
Saturday was the A’s and the Angels. A’s won.
Sunday it rained and we missed out on Cubs and Dodgers (darn it).
Monday was the Cubs and A’s. No one kept score. (*cough* Cubs *cough*)
Dave and Chris, both of whom are highly respected professionals in their particular vocations. It’s true. The fact they’re also intelligent, handsome and funny again makes me wonder about the gene pool thing.
Uncle Mike, Aunt Lily, and The Bride. Notice how none of them are melting away in the rain. (Somehow I didn’t get a good picture of cousin-to-be Marissa. Maybe she’s a ninja.)
Here’s my good friend Hall of Fame Cubs pitcher Fergie Jenkins (who is obviously thinking “restraining order”).
You can’t see it there but he signed my hat. Oh, look. Here’s a picture for my adoring fans (both of them).
If you’re bored, there’s more pictures over at Flickr. Have fun.
