a perfect day


If you’ve been reading my blogs, you know I like baseball. Today was no exception.

For about two hours, the sunshine, the crack of the bat, the sound of the ball hitting the catchers glove, and catcalls for the umpire dominated. It’s Summer…almost.

Baseball is one of those games that has a little something for everyone. For those who just want to be outside, it couldn’t be better. For those looking for a party, beers are $1.00 and brats are fresh off the grill. For those who really like the game, there’s talk about who should do what and when.

The pace of the game allows conversation and relaxation. But, there’s enough going on to hold your attention, especially when a ball gets ripped to where you’re sitting.

Baseball, where I live, brings friends and family together. Living in a small town, we get to find out what’s going and with whom.

Yes, we are a little nosey. But, that’s OK, too.

  1. You can't relax TOO much at a baseball game -- you never know when a foul ball is going to make a beeline for your head!!

    Speaking of heads.... yes, sad that hubby doesn't have a face, isn't it?? ;-)

    I like to think of myself as a purple pioneer -- it's been my favourite colour for 35 years. It's about time people are finally catching on to the amazingness that is purple!! :-)
