Defeat from Victory

the teams


Well, It is the Oakland As. They can come from behind and lead 6:4 at the top of the ninth secondary to some good hits and an Angel foul-up that scored three (of three) runners) without the ball leaving the park. Hello? Barely leaving the infield. But then the new relief batter in the ninths (Dull – his name and also his performance) walked a batter, allowed a hit, then gave up a home rum. End result? a 7:6 loss.

And the player of the night? Actually Kole Calhoun for the Angels who maintained a good sense of humor and sportsmanship even with the level of noise, advice and good natured harassment coming from my right field bleacher section.

Otherwise, I spent mots of the day going to, being at and coming back from the dentist. Fabulous person with good sense of humor.Maybe I have just been lucky, but really impressed with the level of professionals working at the SFVA. It makes up for having to take the #38 bus down Geary from the VA to Embarcadero. I guess if I view it as $1.00 for an hours entertainment (and back rattle) it isn’t so bad….

I arrived home a whole lot later than planned. But my bells added to the noise this evening…..

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
