I've been a fan since 1958 and haven't seen too many winning seasons, but I'm still a fan. Besides, they had 92 wins last year - I'd take that again. It's just good to hear baseball again, win or lose. You remember losing, don't you? It's what Boston teams did before we moved here in 2000. Now why couldn't I have that kind of luck back in Cleveland???

Geez Dawg, I'm sorry to hear that. Hope it's nothing serious with the knee. What you do to his head for wearing sox with flip-flops is up to you.

Thanks CG. Yes. Thank goodness it wasn't in public. And I found a new use for a flip-flop, they have a lot of flexibility when connected with a human, along with a few choice words.

I'm getting ready for a day in the City. I have to be on site for meetings and then have another meeting that could be an interesting possibility--combining cooking and writing. At any rate, I won't be back until late afternoon, so I best get off the computer, feed the girls, etc., etc.

I spent the day fielding phone calls from DH at the doctor's offices and looking for the cane I used when I broke my ankle a few years ago. I finally found it, it folds up really small, and was tucked into the bathroom closet. They don't know if anything is broken yet.

The next few weeks should be really fun. I plan to turn into Nurse Ratchet.
Now that could ruin a summer, sorry to hear it and I hope DH is better soon.

I think I hear the Ogre waking up...yep!

Geez, I go to sleep early and all sorts of stuff happens.

PF, ow! I hope it doesn't hurt too much.

Andy, way to go! Sounds like the work you put in for the condo association is appreciated.

Dawg, bummer. I hope he isn't too damaged and he heals quickly. I guess he wasn't wearing the right kind of socks with his flip flops. You don't wear regular socks with zoris; you wear tabis with zoris:



And yes, I remember the sound of flip flop on flesh. As kids we used to whack each other with them on occasion.

Not even a bruise, the knee is fine, no limp. One of these days I'm going to break a patella or a tib/fib.

Love the tabis!

I remember losing too well. If I didn't, the Red Sox kindly reminded me yesterday.

The Indians had a great season last year. Now that they have our ex-manager, they could do well. Francona was good for us. I hope he does well with Cleveland too.

I just finished a couple sandwiches for brunch.
I took the leftover diced veggies I had the other night with my brats and added in some sliced, dried beef I had in the cupboard for too long. On whitebread with mayo. Kind of like a western.
