Here, There and Everywhere

Sorry ye olde bloggity blog went dark for a while. We’ve been busy!

Friday night, we went to PNC Park and watched the cubs score in 7 of an available 9 innings. Ugh.

We had a great view of the post-game fireworks from up there. It was fun!

On Saturday morning, I worked a quiet few hours at Bloomin’ Yarns. It was fun. Then I headed home and we went to PNC for another baseball game.

We sat down lower and were joined by Weirdy Pants and the MWP. We saw the Parrot up close several times. I hope they had fun. It made the day fun for me!

Of course, the damn game was a marathon.

It went 14 innings. Yes, the scoreboard says 11:14 pm. The Pirates did manage to win in those 14 innings, but by the time we were walking out of the park, there were just a few short minutes left in my birthday.

The Hubster talked me into staying at home on Saturday night rather than heading straight up to the Lake, so I left first thing in the morning.

I got to the Lake in time to see Jim Nabors sing “Back Home Again in Indiana” prior to the start of the Indy 500. So that was good.

We had a good sunset on Sunday night

I ducked out of the TV room where we were watching the UCLA softball game to snap a few pictures.

Same drill on Monday, but instead of watching a Bruins win we were watching a Penguins loss

I finished the C&C socks but don’t have the energy to do that post tonight. I’m going to upload the photos to flickr and do a post once I get to Oklahoma City tomorrow. I hope.

If you catch any softball on ESPN or ESPN2 over the next 10 days or so, that’s where I’ll be. I’ll be very neutral and professional on the outside, but on the inside?

I'm glad we didn't go on Sunday, too, after 9 innings Friday, 14 innings on Saturday and then another 12 on Sunday, my butt would have been fused with PNC Park!

Have a great trip! :)

I'm glad the Buccos managed to pull off a win for your birthday!
