    Greetings!

    Sounds like a fun time for OFA! Have a great show!

    Last night’s World Series game was the hottest postseason game played…It was 103 degrees in Los Angeles at first pitch.
    Both these teams had great records this year…What a matchup!

    A good day to all!

    Just saw Snowhook’s post about a tour and lunch with the Giant…Heh! I bet bacon will be on that menu! ;^)

    Or maybe that lunch menu will be Slim Jims and a vat o’ beer!

    Good morning Wose and everyone! Been 29 years since the Dodgers went to the world serious and mom remembers when they moved from Brooklyn to Chavez Ravine.
    OFA on the radio…break a leg!

    Rose: I still have to fill in my name and address info each time I comment.

    Good afternoon all.

    This little rascal has a sibling with the white chin on the other side. Like looking in a mirror

    Another photo of Funny Face. She looks very like her mom. Too much cuteness. The kitties play all the time

    C.Hobbit! Such cute babies!! And the perfect age to watch them learn how to run and play. You need to put one of the babies close to Mr.Big so we can get an idea how big he is and how small they are.

    Game 2 tonight. Hoping for better results for the Astros.

    C. Hobbitz! Those kitties are absolutely adorable! Don’t let Belle Starr see them! :^)

    Looking forward to listening to today’s radio show…interesting subject matter…translations of Kafka and the Bible.

    Hobbit: Your little foster kitties are very cute!

    Masquers, our “we have read” numbers agree with yours…twins perhaps?
    Had a graduate level Spanish class which required wading through Don Quixote in Spanish then translated on our own time. As Dawson would say, “Sheesh”, but enlightening.
    Hobbitz, all kittens are cute.

    Kitty!..Kats!…snuff! Enough said.

    Series!…Start again in less than an hour. Tonight could be a whole nuther ball game….heh!heh!

    Baker!…Boy is right up there with my Remodeling guys who never come back and finish the job…grump!

    7:56 pm on October 25th, 2017

    Count!…Who is here to watch the game tonight?…snort!

    Staff: WTH indeed!

    RIO! I am watching the game!

  18. dawson
    8:30 pm on October 25th, 2017

    I got home just in time to see the start of the ball game.
    Go Astros!

    CHobbitz: Those kittens are adorable!

    Wow!
    Staff: The scenic route.

    I’m here with Mom ready to watch!

    OMK, what is going on with that package?!

  20. Rio - The Evil Pug
    8:40 pm on October 25th, 2017

    Staff!…Um…Thanks for letting everyone in the world know where I live now. You could have emailed me that info btw…grump!…And thanks for trying to track down your package. But seriously, think about what you are posting on this here blog dawg-d–mit….grunt!

    Altuve is not happy with himself!

  22. BooBear
    9:06 pm on October 25th, 2017

    No biggie, Rio! Mom didn’t read the details, just saw the length of the tracking!
    So still no clue where you live.

    Go, Stros!!

    Only one world serious game comment? Where is everyone? We “watch ” it vicariously through all the comments.

    Watching these pitchers in slow motion makes you wonder how they can get their arms to twist and turn like they do and still control the ball.

  25. Wose-The Small and Meek
    9:19 pm on October 25th, 2017

    BooBear: Agreed! It is amazing that someone can throw a ball upwards of 90 miles per hour!

    Rio, is it the kitchen or bathroom that didn’t get finished? Mom got very lucky with the roofing company and then the painters. Didn’t know how it would go with contractors so busy in the Houston area.

    HH Nt many cmmnts bcause the score is 1 ta nothing. What happened to my vowels at the beginning of the sentence?!

  28. BooBear
    9:51 pm on October 25th, 2017

    Rats! LA just tied the game up. Houston’s offense has not been good during this series so getting behind is dangerous.

    Dawson, blog bug strikes again.

  29. dawson
    9:51 pm on October 25th, 2017

    Oops!
    I spoke too soon. The score is now tied at 1 after Pederson hit a homer. First Dodger hit of the game at 4 2/3rds innings.

  30. Herd of Hounds
    9:58 pm on October 25th, 2017

    We are loving the color commentary! Tied? Oh my!

  31. BooBear
    10:18 pm on October 25th, 2017

    Not tied anymore. I think I jinx the Astros when I watch these games. I think I need to change the channel and hope for the best.

  32. dawson
    11:22 pm on October 25th, 2017

    My, my, my!
    Who is that guy, Gonzalez? He just tied the game again 3 ta 3 in the top of the 9th!

  33. dawson
    11:40 pm on October 25th, 2017

    Back to back home runs by Houston!
    5 ta 3 Houston!

  34. dawson
    11:43 pm on October 25th, 2017

    The Dodgers are putting in their 8th pitcher in a 10 inning (so far) game!

  35. dawson
    11:51 pm on October 25th, 2017

    A Pug is batting for the Dodgers!
    And he just hit a homer! Oh no!! 5 ta 4!

  36. dawson
    11:53 pm on October 25th, 2017

    Not a “Pug”, he’s a “Puig”.

    Uh oh. Staff is in big trouble now…

  38. dawson
    12:10 am on October 26th, 2017

    Staff: Yup!

    Oh no! Game tied again, sob!

    Btw: I have to re-type my name and mail every time, too.

  39. dawson
    12:11 am on October 26th, 2017

    I mean,
    Alice M. Johnson: Yup!

  40. dawson
    12:15 am on October 26th, 2017

    My eyes are getting heavy and…Houston home run!!!

  41. dawson
    12:17 am on October 26th, 2017

    2 run home run, it was! 7 ta 5!

  42. dawson
    12:43 am on October 26th, 2017

    Whew! The Astros managed to hang on and winnit 7 ta 6.
    Go Houston!

  43. BooBear
    6:31 am on October 26th, 2017

    Thank you Dawson! Mom was too nervous to watch so it was cool to be able to read what happened!

    Go Astros!!
