Sunday Photos and Musings

Weekend traffic on these blog sites is always less than during the week....if you figure most folks use the internet when at home, you wonder why? Now people don't acutally "surf" when at work, do they? Seriously though, it doesn't come as a surprise....I know I spend less time on the computer on weekends than the other 5 days....but that's just me, or maybe not....and the fact is, the nicer the weather, the less time "computing" or wasting time inside it will be. Not a big fan of sitting in the house, come May and June.....same goes for September and October, those have to be my 4 favorite Ohio weather months, and even they are sometimes "iffy".

Yesterday the weather held off, and Sam and I got our game in at Lincolnview...a few sprinkles and the game was over in 1 hour and 40 minutes...a 4 1/2 inning run rule won by the home team 20-0....although the score was ugly, TC played hard and had no errors, they just don't have the pitching nor the numbers(10 players on team, total) to compete day-in-and-day-out....the effort was there.

I got home just in time to watch the final 15 minutes as my Philly Flyers fell to Washington 3-2....but they are still up in the best of 7 by that same total, 3 games to 2, and are heading back to Philadelphia for game 6....hopefully to finish the series off. Best game of the night was Boston getting even at 3 games apiece with the Canadians, by coming from behind to win 5-4...6 goals scored in the final frame, with the Bruins getting the winner with less than 3 minutes left.

After the Flyers game, I walked outside with Reagan, the Airedale, fired up a torpedo, and took some photos out back....I've got 2 places I can smoke a fine cigar and down a beer or 3.....usually at night when the weather is right I will park myself on the front porch in one of the iron chairs....the day light hours I prefer to sit out back where I don't have to acknowledge those passing by when I'm enjoying that fine cigar and a beer....the fenced in back yard does indeed have advantages, you don't have to worry about your hair being combed, your gut hanging out, or a beer and smoke in your hand.....just one of the pleasantries of life.

After a week of dry weather(we could use another 2 weeks of the same), the skies opened up overnight, not a hard rain, but my guess is, it will keep the farmers out of the fields for awhile is indeed going to be a late planting season.

Photos from yesterday-Reagan with her trusty old half deflated basketball, the flowering tree beneath the dining room window, some of Patricia's flowers out front, finally emerging from the long, long, winter, and cold early spring....and my essential supplies for sitting out on the back steps.....
This Week's Baseball Schedule:
Monday April 21st---Northwest Conference game Spencerville at Delphos Jefferson
Tuesday April 22nd--Putnam County League Leipsic at Ottoville
Wednesday April 23rd--non conference New Knoxville at Lincolnview
Thursday April 24th--non conference St Marys at Coldwater
Friday April 25th--non conference St Henry at Spencerville(with Sam)
and finally Saturday at Hicksville a non league double headers against Archbold
All Varisty contests, of course it all depends on the weather(this past week being the first we got them all in), there should be some good games among this bunch...

While all the photos were nice, I kept being drawn back to the beer and cigar shot! That's spring man! Warm enough to sit out back and sip and puff!

...the day light hours I prefer to sit out back where I don't have to acknowledge those passing by when I'm enjoying that fine cigar and a beer....

Sunday's my favorite day to sit outside with a couple of beers and a cigar. I kinda like tweakin' the locals just a lil bit, as we still have Blue Laws in this part of the world... no alcohol sales at ALL on Sunday, in either stores or restaurants. But there's lotsa beer at El Casa Móvil De Pennington... ;-)
