Your daily dose of inspiration

I’m pretty lucky. I had the chance to see something cooler today than most people will see all week.

Become a lifelong fan, have a lot of big birthdays, eventually, your team might celebrate one of them with you.

Update: Here’s a nice little profile on Ms. Christmas. She’s 103 years young.

Root, root, root

Lovely weekend, weather-wise, for being outdoors. I shot a brief video of the ambiance:

Boomerang bubbles with @lmrsmith

And I took a selfie, mostly for that sky.

Anybody got a good cold-weather hardball metaphor?

Feels great if you’re sitting in the sun.

Pretty chilly everywhere else.

But, you’ll sit through that if you enjoy baseball. February baseball.

Pics from the weekend

A friend was sick and complaining on social media. I leaped to the rescue! With milk and chocolate sauce.

She looked pretty good when I dropped it off at her place, though …

Autumn shows off the rally hat and rally sunglasses ensemble at the baseball stadium:

We gave it a try, and if anyone asks I did not invent the rally sunglasses:

Aubie doesn’t wear sunglasses, so he made it work with Upside Down Batman Goggles:

(I did invent those.)

We are painting. Well, we hired painters. Allie is helping:

At least we don’t have to pay The Black Cat for her painting services. She has paint on her tail.

We took my mother-in-law to the Irish pub tonight. I could go there a lot more than we do, actually. And I want to take their poster home with me:

Which is one of the reasons I took a picture of it. That’s actually a poster of which I’d buy a reproduction. Ordinarily I’d only want the authentic stuff, but that’s a good one. Ireland was amazing, having a poster of it in the office would be a nice reminder. Maybe a motivation to get back.

At the baseball game

My mother-in-law has been down for the week visiting and helping us do stuff. We are introducing her to new and exciting people.

Aubie is a ladies man. I think she likes him.
