Still not sure about the user name. I love your suggestions, neighbors. Maybe I just can't claim one yet because none are quite right? Not to make a mountain out of a molehill or anything.
Last week was our town's Little League Opening Day The weather was weirdly perfect, but most of my photos are lame. Oh, well, time for more later.
I was never a fan of Little League, but my kids have been privileged to belong to it in two towns where the coaches and parents are very nurturing. The problems you hear about in other places do not happen here. The oldest boy is in Babe Ruth baseball, which originated in this town, and they co-exist very well, as the players transition from one to the other at age 13.
So, the high school jazz band plays, the teams march to one of the fields, lots of little speeches are given, and usually the kids get a coupon for a hot dog and soda, which is absurd at 10 in the morning. This year there were no coupons, I suspect because they are trying to raise money for new scoreboards for three of the fields, and also there's fundraising going on for the family of a softball coach who died. I had brought sandwiches and grapes, anyway.
Then the oldest son played in the opening Babe Ruth game, and the youngest one played later in the afternoon. It was his first time pitching, and I could hardly believe he had any idea what he was doing. But he seemed to hold his own.
He plays again tonight, but I won't be watching because I am sick. So the camera will wait until Saturday. Or is it tomorrow? I think maybe the other one plays tomorrow. It all starts to blur together for me. No, he practices tomorrow, and plays Saturday and Sunday. Anyway.
It is to be in the 80s this weekend. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Except I'm sort of cold today, so it's hard to believe that's really going to happen.
My temperature keeps hovering at 99. It is normally 97.6. So it's up just enough to be annoying, but I feel like bad anyway. Woozy and drained and made of awful. I have to be in bed today because the next three days are very busy, and I need energy which I have none of, currently. See? I'm talking like Radar. Game shows, I Dream of Jeannie, Twitter. Nap. No idea about dinner. Blargh.
It took the same amount of time to do this as it did on the other page, by the way. Ah, me.
