Out of the running

Well, it was a good effort – at least through the first of the wild card playoffs – the As managed to squeak by the Chicago White Sox. Then, down two games in the second series, they managed to pull … Continue reading

It just isn’t the same

Yes, I am more than comfortable, sitting in our back bedroom/guest room/TV room with baseball on the television, but it just is not the same. Not like sitting the ball park. Not being surrounded by fellow noisy (and noise making … Continue reading

But there isn ‘t any baseball!

Too many appointments

More purple

There was something I read the other day about the change in colors in the evening sky. Comments about more of a purple hue after sunset. So, for a few days, I took a picture (please ignore the lights – … Continue reading

Too far to the game

Since yesterday was a holiday – the waiting room at UCSF was jammed to the gills with both the Friday and Thursday patients. Since there was little to no traffic, the drive in went smoothly, the clinic was running at … Continue reading
