Well now that I have a break to post, I have been busy for the past week. If you managed to do a drive-by at JUGM'S blog, you will see that we were camping this past weekend with fellow group member REBEL and his family. All in all, we had a great time and had much to talk and laugh about. Would have been better if we had a few more attend, but everyone is busy as of late.
Work has slowed, but now my attention has focused onto, THE FALL CLASSIC!!!! AL/NL Divisional and Championships leading up to the WORLD SERIES. I feel like an Encyclopedia Britannica when the boys ask a question or don't understand something.
After arriving back Sunday from camping and a two hour lay over, the boys had a game. First three innings didn't go so well, but they woke up the last three. Had practice tonight and worked on some of the mistakes from Sunday and let's just say, "SENIOR" had to get in the field and demonstrate proper fielding while sitting a couple of players out since they decided to goof off a bit and not pay attention. I felt like a kid again out in the field playing with the kids who wanted to learn. The head coach, he's an older guy, maybe late 50's early 60's and he said to the kid's, "Watch Coach". I was at shortstop, and he hit it fairly hard to my left between myself and the bag. Well, I laterally moved to my left, scooped it up and went through the motions to throw to first. As I have a 8 yr old on first, I was not about to throw the ball at 80 mph to them, but all the kids were standing there with a look on their face that, "Holy crap, this guy knows how to play". As practice went somewhat smoother, I went to the mound and pitched batting practice. NW was tearing the ball up, hitting it in the air to the outfield while ND needs some more work. Him being a lefty, the majority of his hits are to first base which will require more attention on his timing for right now.
As I am writing this post, Doomsday Preppers is on with new episodes so everyone have a good remaining to your week.
