Near sunset, we had this funky red streak in the sky below the cloud deck, just before the clear sky. I thought it was pretty neat. You can see it pretty much smack across the center of the image. It isn't anywhere near as easy to pick out in the second photo, but I really like the way our woodsy back yard looks when there are colorful leaves on both the trees and the ground.

Your back yard is woodsy enough I would love to take a walk through it.

We have a half-acre, 100 foot wide and about 235 curb-to-back-line. More than half the yard is wooded. And full of ticks. Bring bug spray. LOTS of bug spray.

i just saw this. thanks cheryl.

my coaches are great guys. the guy to my right is a tremendous athlete, but unfortunately it's a case like the martin and lewis movie "that's my boy". hopefully, someday he'll realize that his son would rather design women's clothes or room decor rather than play sports.

the next guy over is the sweetest, soft spoken, and eternally positive guy you could ever meet. he was my bench coach (keeping everyone focused on the game - not distracted as 9 and 10 year olds can be. oh look, there's a squirrel). he also warmed up my relief pitchers and was so complimentary that when i put them in, they were full of confidence, ready to paint the black and throw smoke.

the guy on the other end from me is the best baseball man that i've ever known. he would catch my little mistakes here and there that could have cost us the game. more importantly, he taught the kids to respect the coaches and to never underestimate our opponents, and to be good sportsmen at all times.

it was a pleasure to work with them this past spring.

plus going 13-2-1 and coming in 1st place didn't hurt.

btw, we was robbed on one of our losses. the umpire blew a few critical calls that stevie wonder would have gotten right. then he stopped the game before we got our last ups as we were the home team. he didn't understand the rules thinking that the time limit of 2 hours supercedes baseball rules.

KILL THE UMP!

he never worked any of my games after that.

bucky, you need Spike to umpire your games. He can cite the rule book backwards and forward. He was involved in Little League for a good many years. Even after his son stopped playing. His wife used to say she was a widow from May to the end of September. After he stopped coaching, he took up umpiring. It was his way of staying in the game. Now his son has his own semi-pro baseball team that is sponsored by the Boston Red Sox. Their first year was a disaster. To be expected. This year they came in first in their division. Practice makes perfect.
