I'm score keeper for tonights game. Sam just hit a double and scored
off scooters double. Dylan got wacked on the knee by a line drive.
He's out for now.
Nicole opened some early presents today because grandma insisted. It's
a lot of bulbs, plants, seeds and that sort of stuff Mr Woo and his
landscaping team started working on the property today so plantings
can't be far away.
I played golf for the first time in 6 months and ended up winning the
scramble tournament with my partners. Won 75 bucks in the pro shop. I
spent that and another 75 on some sexy golf gear.
Nicole left the house at 5am today to run the George Washington
Parkway Classic 10 mile race. It started at Mount Vernon and followed
the parkway down into Old Town. George Washington used to do the
opposite. After getting drunk at Gadsbys Tavern and realizing he was
late for dinner he would run the 10 miles up to Mount Vernon. I
believe he's the record holder. He couldn't call Martha and tell her
he would be late, no cell phone.
The boys and I went down near the finish line to cheer her as she ran
past. We were back home by 10am.
Both boys were hitting the ball again today. Dylan went 3 for 4 Sam
smacked 3 for 3 with an RBI. Sam also basically hit two doubles with
two of his hits getting past the the outfielders and hitting the
fence. He stopped on first with his first big hit because he didn't
know he could take more than one base.
Sam also got the game ball which Dylan celebrated with him mightily.
Made it in at 6am this morning from LA and slept until 2pm. Those red
eyes kill me but it was better than getting up in la at 4am and
spending the whole day on an airplane.
Had to get back for the big game tonight and another one tomorrow.
It's all baseball all the time these days.
I love this camera filter for the iPhone. The pictures look like from
when I played baseball.
I'm laying in bed in Irvine California wide awake about an hour before
I need to be at my meeting today. I'm getting to an age where I can't
sleep past a certain time and time zones effect me. Didn't used to be
that way. Just downloaded a new app that turns your iPhone camera into
a 70's era pocket film type camera. Gives your photos an old analog
kind of feel. Old school.
Looking forward to going home tonight.
|NCAA Pool |
Well, Sam is the champion and the loser in the first annual family NCAA Basketball Tournament Pool. I let him know that the loser was supposed to buy the winner a brand new Ferrari which he thinks is unfair. Oh well.
At the brand, spanking new Gettysburg National Battlefield
interpretive center. Got here when it opened at 10 and beat the buses
from dc with tons of tourists. Hiked around Culps Hill and having
lunch in a civil war era tavern. Going to make the boys do pickets
charge next since they are rebs, being born in Virginia and all. A
quick visit to little roundtop then home by 6 I hope.
