Too hot to play…

  Today’s automobile:

1950 Merc, cuatomized


Some thoughts for today:

Great Granddaughter Stella is playing ‘fast pitch’ soft ball. Sherry had a shower to attend, but we did get to go to the first game.  It was a hot day, yeah I know it is hot all over this year.

Fast pitch is amazing. Those kids can let that ball fly. Stella was Shortstop, but mid game the coach replaced the pitcher and catcher. Stella did the catching, did a great job and that replacement pitcher was FIRING that ball (I was surprised at the speed). I didn’t get any great pictures, but any pictures of your grands is good.

 (You are OUT!)

Stella was a better catcher than the starter, I was pleased, even in the heat, she did a good job.  She also scored one of their 2 runs. The kid is a good hitter but she was walked. Then stole bases all the way around the field. She is  fast.

She is relaxing a little while the Umpire checked the time...

I didn’t know it but she was having some problems with her left hand. Here she is after the game hauling her ‘stuff’. I could tell she was favoring that left hand. You can see the results of the sun on her face, even with all the gear covering the catcher…..


Oh in closing. Here is a shot of our Pent House for the birds. It wasn’t used this year and I have it squirrel proof, still no takers.


That was our Saturday Morning......

Way to go, Stella! Gosh Jack, but she's turning into a real (natural) beauty.
I just can't take the heat like I used to; in fact, as a child I don't remember ever feeling hot. What happened?!?! LOL. Your penthouse area looks like a lovely place to linger with an tall iced tea.

Stella sure has grown up since the last picture I remember seeing of her! WTG with her baseball skills!! Great game to play even in the heat!! I admire those who can play in the heat and those who watch from the stands!

Good for your gal Stella! Funny how the heat doesn't seem to bother kids as much. They can play in any kind of weather. Here we had rain on Sunday and Monday is cooler. Almost perfect in the mid 70's. Great weather to play in for sure !
