Mixed results in yesterdays games. First the Broncos were able to win and they played well in the second half. The the Cardinal game. One swing of the bat scored 3 runs for Boston and put them up 4 to 2. Any hope of a rally in the bottom of the ninth were dashed when the Cardinal base runner was picked off first base to end the game, another weird way to end a game. Back at it again tomorrow night.

Well today it was another loss for the Cardinals and they are one game away from elimination as they head back to Boston for a Wednesday game. It doesn't look good.

Today is a travel day for the Cardinals so there just wasn't much happening. I was able to watch the remake of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds out my window.
Doctors appointment in the morning to get the results of the biopsy. We know it's cancer, we just have to find out what kind.

Good news today at the doctors. The latest skin cancer is not melanoma, which the doctor suggested it might be at the biopsy, but instead it's the more common squamous cell form. Much more treatable and much less deadly.
The baseball season ended last night and the Cardinals will have to settle for second best team in baseball for the year. Ultimately their poor hitting in the last couple of weeks did them in, but that's not to take away from the fine season they had.

Not a lot going on today, but it is Halloween and all the ghosts and goblins are on the loose. I did make a run to Walmart this morning and that was the activity for my day.

Slipped into the weekend mode and kicked back to watch two football teams I follow win their games. That and a tour around the park to check on new arrivals was the extent of the activity for the day.
