More and more purple

Somehow, for some reason, more purple/pink blossoms keep turning up in our mostly-white front yard window guardian. It does look quite interesting.

Now my Mets are co-mingling

This late in the season, I can enjoy my Syracuse Mets season by rooting for many players watched through previous portions of the year playing upstairs with the parent New York Mets. In fact, the lead off hitter on this night was outfielder Travis Jankowski, who began the season with my New York Mets until…

Big night at the game for the kid

Some nights at the ballpark are so, so wonderful. Sitting with George Three’s nephew Mason game me so many smiles at the Syracuse Mets game. When they threw the T-shirts out between innings, one winged its way to the nice gentleman wearing a black T in the row ahead of us. He immediately turned and…

Imagine the strength

While we ate our Peacheys glazed donut, my dear wife Karen and I took a good luck at the closed-for-the-evening Extreme Strong setup. I imagined the strong person in the home-away-from-home parked behind the sign. Slurping a protein smoothie? Sleeping to regain power? Watching me watching? I swear I’m not creepy. Welcome to Central New…
