CUBS, in a scheduling marvel that I hope is unique to THIS year, play the final game of a four game set with the METS today. After winning yesterday's game, they're in a position to split the series. Pitching to the Fore!! Jake Arrieta pitched a marvelous game and deserved the win, but Relief gave up the tying run and Castro's homer in the top of the ninth gave the win to the pitcher who gave up the tying run. One of those "Not Fair" things about Baseball.
Saturday was spent in the company of friends from "Listen To Your Mother". A picnic. At a cast member's home. It was a fun day and a good time was had by all. I brought hot dogs and beer. And I came home sober.
Coming home sober was important, because the night before I had been to a celebration of an LYTM cast member's 39th birthday and I had just a bit too much rum. The hangover was unique - first one in many years and I had forgotten just how much I didn't enjoy them. Oy.
I cannot, for the life of me, understand what's going on in Ferguson. All the facts are not in - or at least, not on public display. Still, it seems like a massive over-reaction on both sides. That said, the Police have more and better guns. I wonder why the SIZE of the Police response. And the military tactics.
The Summer. the all-too-brief, never-warm-enough Summer is winding down. I wonder what Fall and winter will bring?
