Awards - Take Me Out To The Ballgame Edition

Take me out to the ball game
I had a very delightful time at the ballpark with Younger Son and Teen Daughter. They even allowed me to snap a picture of them together on the ballfield. I don't even like baseball but the whole night was perfect. I am feeling much less trepidation over their growing up.

Take me out with the crowds
Emily is getting ready to start her student teaching. Knock em dead!

Also, Emily, Amy, Liz and I humbly request an end to headaches and/or sustained lactation past the "still necessary" date.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks
The Pixie Food Patrol was in full force this week, sharing cake and quesadillas and tequila and PESTO!!!! (I miss pesto but Teen Daughter's food allergies don't allow for it) along with esparanza's abundant leftovers. Who needs popcorn and cracker jack?

I don't care if I ever get back
Emily, that seems to have been the theme for your food this week. Here's hoping it defies gravity this next week.

So let's root, root, root for the home team
This was a time of beginnings - from the psychological start of fall to the start of the High Holy Days. Esparanza, I am also thinking of you and the Wee Baboo's on the rain drenched roads. Hope your trip is very uneventful.

Sue, we are glad that you can be there for your friend in this time of sorrow for her.

If they don't win it's a shame
Thinking of Amy as she prepares for her interview, Madeleine who is involved in a very befuddling product launch, and kathy a reading her daughter for another year away at university. Sending vibes of patience (and some virtual valium) to help this pass.

For it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game.
The Cluestick Posse will be heading to the spouse of Amy's teammate who needs repeated assistance understanding the true reason for charity fundraising. Hint: the IRS has absolutely nothing to do with it!

We have the Cluestick Posse and the ready for you, Sue, to deal with a certain subset cantankerous parishioners who pass judgment on homilies unheard.

We share kathy a's relief that she dodged a loathsome toad in her youth and instead found her Prince Charming with whom she has happily built a beautiful family and life.

Sending lots of real $ud@fed to Liz so that her green goop goes away pronto!

Thanks for playing. Come back next week (or, because this is so late, tomorrow) when the admirable kathy a helms the brigadoon.
