Monday Meanders

CUBS have won three in a row - 2 on Saturday and 1 game yesterday.  In one of those Saturday wins, Kris Bryant hit two home runs.  That's 6 home runs during this Spring Training.  Look out Babe Ruth.

The last couple of days have been glorious, weather wise.  Today will be the best of the bunch.  73 predicted for the high.

I start my new job today.  I'll tell more about it after day one - I want to get that first day under my belt before I blab.  It's that old "counting chickens" thing, you know?

I got the motorcycle out of the garage, yesterday.  I turned it over to my friend John who will do a valve adjustment on the engine.  It's a cold-blooded beast and the valve adjustment should help her run better when the engine isn't thoroughly warmed up.

I also got my bicycle out - it's time to start riding again.  I now have two rider bikes - that is, bikes I can and will ride regularly.  One is my Schwinn World 24, which I have pictured here in the past and the other is an off-road bike with full suspension (front and and back) and 21 speeds.  I rebuilt the off-roader.  The Schwinn was purchased new.

Late last week I made my best meal yet in the slow cooker.  Scalloped potatoes & ham.  It was delicious.  And I used a liner bag in the cooker so cleanup was a snap.  Win, Win.

Wish me luck.

...gonna have to pick up a slow cooker... that would be a turn on for the ladies to see that I do know how to make a meal..!

Spring training is too early to worry about losing a series... trust the process..!
