Icy Roads and Dartball


Schools closed around the area still today...main roads are clean, but the side and back roads are still iced up......did my thing in Greenville this morning, will be the last day for me until January 7th....one less thing to put stress on the back....although it's the drive down in the early morning, rather than the walking around the Honda affiliate that for the most part is a pain the the back.

Met the niece's boyfriend half way to Columbus this afternoon to pick up brother Mike....he will be coming back home to stay with mom over Christmas...then begins his radiation treatment back in Columbus sometime the week after Christmas, so the VA says.....in the meantime we will try to convince mom to head for Naples for a few months....no sense in her staying up here in the north winter while he undergoes treatment....I can either drive her down and fly back, or put her and the bird on a plane and fly her down sometime after January 1st......

Finished up the first half of our Dartball League last night....with some new players, my back, and some guys getting old(one of our best players is 89 and has been in the league since it's inception in 1938)....we have struggled....I finally had a decent night last night as we took 2 or 3 games and finished the half at 10 wins 11 loses....good for 2nd place in the south division.....Mount Carmel was a runaway winner in the division.....I finished 6 for 12 with 4 triples and 8 rbi's.....to end up the first half .356 with 17 RBI.....I was batting the Interstate(.100-.200) for most of the early going.....the ego of a lifetime .400 "batter" takes a beating when the only excuse you hate to udder is "Bad Back"....

No Dartball until January 7th as well.....the second half begins the night of the OSU-LSU National Championship game.....I doubt if that will fly, so probably will have to reschedule that one.......

Good for you! NOW---sit down, lay back, light one of your favorite "torpedos", and enjoy the temporary "inaction"...!

Really, sit the fuck down and rest yourself. You're makin' me nervous just talkin' about havin' cabin fever.

Hope all goes well with the bro, and everyone is safely out of the snow.
