Softball is King

I might have mentioned that we are drowning in our current softball schedule.  Since Jack told me to just keep the softball photos coming, I am giving him a little shout-out today.  

The girl pitching.  



Sending it.....



and, being congratulated for striking out the batter.  



The happy face after a big hit.  

Good sportsmanship after a win.  


Just for today I will gift you with a selfie.  Yep, that's me at the ballpark this past weekend.  Brutally cold weather, with high winds, is cause for a winter coat and a grumpy face.  




Many teams ended up dropping out of the tournament due to the weather, forcing its cancellation.


As for me, I came home, snuggled up with a quilt and Michael Pollan's new documentary series.

  6. Good for you to support the energetic and enthusiastic efforts of your family and team. I remember those cold days freezing my keester on the bleachers. I own Michael Pollan's book, "Cooked." Love it.

  11. The Girl and her teammates look like they were having fun -- not cold at all. Bravo to you for toughing it out! It sure has been an odd spring. I saw there was snow on the ground in Detroit this weekend. Since I don't want you to unfollow me, I shall not bother describing the weather in Sarasota… : )

  24. It took me a while to get here, but I made it! Love to see those softball pix. When she is out of the house and launched into her adult life, you will measure these hours. (By the way, that is not your but look.)
