Today a load of laundry was done and all preparations are complete for getting under way. The only thing holding me up are the wind alerts that are posted from Arizona to West Texas. I see nothing to be gained by driving into 40 miles per hour winds. So I'll wait for more favorable conditions.
Yesterdays home opener for the Cardinals was a major disappointment. Going into the ninth inning the score was even at 4 apiece and then we called on our ace bullpen which promptly gave up nine runs. Even the Cardinal announcers had trouble making this one sound palatable.
Later in the evening it was time for the NCAA Championship game. I had no horse in this race, but I was disgusted by the way it was officiated.. This game was more suited to full pads and helmets. The reluctance of todays officials to blow their whistles so as not to effect the game has a tremendous impact on the way the game is played. Full contact basketball is not for me.
More folks pulled out this morning and friend Marty and Laurie have offered their awning for PaT to park under for the summer. That's the kind of nice people we have around here.
Today we are on the way to 100 degrees so I think I will stay out of the sun in my attempt to enjoy the good life.
