The Boys of Summer

Congrats to the Stros and the Dodgers for a great series. We’ll miss baseball. Here’s a little something from THEREBY HANGS A TAIL:

We drove toward the sun, through a few neighborhoods a lot like our own, then past a baseball field with a kids’ game going on. I didn’t understand baseball but it always looked like fun, and the ball itself I loved. Who’d have guessed what the insides were like? At that very moment a kid swung his bat and the ball went soaring into the sky. We weren’t going very fast. Would it be totally impossible to –

“Che – et?” Bernie had this way of sometimes saying my name real slow. The ball hit the grass and bounced toward the outfield fence in lovely long hops that made me want to – “Che – et?” We drove on.

    A very exciting World Series! Congratulations to the Astros on the big win, and kudos to the Dodgers for a great season.

    I am laughing at Chet and Bernie, too! I love when Bernie says Chet’s name real slow!

    Good afternoon! Folks are dragging at Mom’s work. No one wants to be here. Everybody is tired and drained from the World Series.
    Just found out that the Houston ISD is cancelling school tomorrow so the kids can go to the parade! Wish someone would cancel work LOL!

    Glue gun is a four letter word our house. Mom can glue her fingers together without even thinking about it. 😃

    Personally I think that is why glue guns were invented. Every time I use them. By the way I had to type my info in tonight. I guess that was just a World Series special last night.
