I am in Montana, my cell phone has no service ( or at least I have not figured out how to make the roam work ). I have my laptop in my room is really slow, seems to be dial up ( holy cow ). I am currently typing from the lobby computer, so far it seems a little faster, not great. all part of the adventure!
Last night, the middle of the ninth inning, Mariners are down by 1, on the big screen is how to make your ball hat into a rally hat. Basically, turn your hat inside out and wear it. Well, it looks a like goofy, with the bill of the hat curved the wrong way, and feels a little strange. Donna and I had our hats on inside out, chuckled at the silliness. Unfortunately, the rally hats did not help the team score.
It is a tradition, fan appreciation game, which Donna and I go to the game. So, we had a photo with the new Dave statue. We didn't win any prizes, 3 years ago, I won a $ 250 team store gift certificate.
At the game, we heard Rick "the Peanut Guy" passed away. I talked to Rick at the game in June, he asked if I would knit him some socks. Rick was a character, as some one would order a bag of warm peanuts and he would toss the bag across the rows. He was a part of the game. Just as Dave was the Mariner announcer for many years, too.
Ten years ago, a major tragedy hit in the USA. It dominated the media for days, then and now. I would think some of the families, that suffered losses would prefer a private memorial. Peace to the families!
We got a mixed bouquet of of spider mums, white, lavender, pink and purple. We donated the Skagit Humane Society. We "had" to have a sugar cookie frosted with pink icing topped with sprinkles. We miss you and hope you are showing Dad around the place.
